These are my all time favorite homeschooling books.
These two books by Ruth Beechick made me feel like I could really do this on my own.
My homeschool eyes opened up after I realized that I had a visual spatial learner. If you’re struggling it may be because you haven’t figured out their learning style yet. Take a look at these books if you have a VSL as well.
- Visual Spatial Learner
- Upside Down Brillance
- Right Brained Child in a Left Brained World
- Unicorns are Real: A right brained approach to learning
- How to get your child off the refrigerator and on to learning
These are my favorite math resources
For math curriculum we’re huge fans of:
Language Arts & History
I am of huge fan of the Peace Hills Press curriculum from Susan Bauer, author of The Well-Trained Mind.
I used all of the history books along with the activity guides, they’re a must, with my oldest, and now I’m going through them with my second son. We’re using the older version of First Language Lessons that has level 1 and 2 together and it’s great for my auditory learner. He’s also using Writing with Ease for writing. I have the workbook now but I initially just had the handbook and then found my own passages to read or copy from my son’s reading books.
For spelling I use All About Spelling and the hands-on approach to spelling with tiles and great for my son.
If you’re looking for a fun and educational activity for your child, I’d recommend one of these subscription services.
If you’re ready to jump full force into unit studies, the Delightful Planning Unit Study Planner, from Marcy is wonderful. She even has a whole 31 day series on Delight-Directed Learning.
If you need mommy help with your yelling or anger, the first step is to admit that we have a problem, then you need to do something about it. These two resources have helped me because there have been tears in my homeschool and sometimes, I’m ashamed to admit it, they were caused by me.
