You Can Teach Your Child Successfully
Grades 4-8

by Ruth Beechick
This classic gives nitty-gritty help for each subject in each grade. Become an informed, confident teacher, free from rigid textbooks.

Learning All The Time
by John Holt
This delightful book by the influential author of How Children Fail and How Children Learn shows how children learn to read, write, and count in their everyday life at home and how adults can respect and encourage this wonderful process.
The object of teaching a child is to enable the child to get along without the teacher. We need to educate our children for their future, not our past.

    Christian Home Educators of West Virginia - CHEWV has been the essential force behind every homeschool law in WV.

Although most younger home educators are unaware of it, during the past three decades, CHEWV has addressed frequent and occasionally serious threats to West Virginia’s homeschooling and/or parental freedoms.

    The heart of every couple on our Board is for all WV home educators

    • to understand the importance of a state group dedicated to preserve the voice of families in our counties, courts and legislature,
    • to have access to all news and events that will help them home school in WV,
    • and to utilize the resources that CHEWV has to offer.

    We truly desire to support and encourage all home educators in the state. We have endeavored to create an informative Christian Home Educators of WV Facebook page with a variety of posts to keep people informed, enlightened, blessed, and encouraged.
