Latinos Homeschooling is launching its Latino Studies for students from ages 5 and up with a variety of programs which are not available to most students in traditional schools. Our programs include Latino studies, book club, story time for the younger students. Stay tuned as the program continues to develop. We are working with educators who are passionate in teaching our students their history and how we have shaped our country!
LHS Book Club is a great way to make friends across the country with other Latino Homeschooling teens while discussing books written by and about Latino experiences by reading Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older.
We'll start with a get-to-know-you craft night, with ice breakers and chisme, on September 28th. Then Book Club launches on October 2nd and runs for 6 weeks. This is a student-led event and lasts approximately one hour. Use it to fulfill Language Arts requirements!r community today and start your journey to success!
