I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
