    Please realize, there is no right answer.  Everyone homeschools differently and it's all OK.

    whats better online or books?

    My ds prefers books.  Friends of his prefer online.  Other friends combine online and books.  Doesn't matter.  See what works best with your child.  

    where do i get books?

    bookstores

    individual product websites

    which online program is best?

    Try some out and see what you like.  Go to a site like http://www.homeschoolreviews.com/ for various opinions and suggestions.

    do they have a curriculum for dyslexic kids?

    There are some specifically for dyslexic children, but they tend to be very expensive.  My ds is dyslexic and we just use regular stuff, but in a more hands-on, multi-sensoral way.  Just do some research and tweak things to fit your child's learning style. 

    and any other info you can tell me. oh! i forgot, is this expensive? or are any free?

    There are plenty of free things out there for homeschoolers - in every subject.  Just type in a topic (along with the word "kids" or "teens") and something educational will come up.

    we are homeschooling in the fall for the first time. i will have a preschooler and a 4th grader. we aregoing to use lesson pathways (free) and add to it as needed if we feel we need more. this is our first time and so we are starting this way but i think in the future we will switch to more of a text book approach but we will see. for my little one i am just (already started) following easy peasy (free) but we are doing abc flash cards, reading together, bob books, and coloring, drawing, and cutting mostly, counting too.
