I want to share my favorite homeschool resources with you! This page is specifically for resources we deem “favorites,” whether we are using them currently or have enjoyed them in the past.
I’ve read a bunch of books about homeschooling methods and inspiration, but these are my all-time favorites:
- A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola
- Free Range Learning by Laura Grace Weldon
- Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning by Oliver DeMille
- Gifted: Raising Children Intentionally by Chris Davis
Our favorite art:
We love the chalk pastel’s tutorials from Hodgepodge. Try the Art for All Ages Curriculum Bundle, which includes more than 100 tutorials!
Chalk Pastels ~ tutorials for all ages.
We’ve been using Teaching Textbooks for several years now, and although there are many other wonderful math programs to choose from, this is the one that has worked best for our family. Read my review of TT Math 5.
For lower grades, we’ve found Horizons Math to be a good fit for us.
God’s World News: this kids’ magazine is a great way to learn about current events, from elementary on up through high school level.
Notgrass History: we’ve used American history (both upper and lower levels) and Georgia state history, and enjoyed them all.
It’s been my experience that reading good literature is the best way to learn pretty much everything related to reading, writing, grammar and punctuation. And Charlotte Mason-style narration takes care of building comprehension skills. See narration tips from Ambleside Online.
A good option for high school composition is the Fortuigence Essay Rock Star program. We’ve used it before and plan to again in the future.
From the very beginning of our homeschool years, we’ve been inspired by Barb’s nature study challenges. She shares all sorts of ideas on getting started, and now she has a wonderful Naturalist’s Library.
