Homeschooling Michigan - Michigan Homeschool Message Board
Welcome to Homeschooling Michigan & Michigan Homeschool Message Board!
Founded in January of 2006, Homeschooling Michigan is intended to be the center for homeschooling in Michigan. Our mission is to bring together support groups, resources and activities for the Michigan Homeschooler. We seek to do this through the Michigan Homeschool Message Board, Homeschooling Michigan Blog, user submitted requests, and sources found.
Michigan Homeschool Message Board
Michigan Homeschool Message Board is a friendly and inclusive forum that Michigan homeschoolers use to ask questions, discuss answers, and share experiences. Serious discussions, off-topic queries, humorous anecdotes, and mindless chatter are all appreciated here. Guests have access to read most messages but you do need to register (it's free!) to post and reply.
Check out the cool widget I made below. It has the latest posts from the Michigan Homeschool Message Board. If it doesn't show up correctly, please refresh your browser. You can even add it to your blog or myspace and many other things. Just click on the Get Widget at the bottom of little widget.
