I thought I would share links to some of the materials we’re currently using in our homeschool. We do a mix of things and sometimes readers email to ask where they can find a product I mention, so here goes.
Math U See – Currently we’re using Primer (Daniel), Alpha (Joseph and Emma), and Delta (Makayla).WriteShop Primary A – Just started this with Joseph and Emma and love it! I’ll do a post soon sharing how it not only is for writing, but provides them with personalized copywork of their stories, games, and fun ways to publish their writing – yay!All Things Fun and Fascinating – This writing book from Institute for Excellence in Writing is written for students in 3rd-5th grade and works well for my reluctant writer. She’s currently learning about using a who/which clause while reading and rewriting a portion from the classic The Pilgrim’s Progress. You can watch an introduction to this book here or download a sample here.
The Family: A Proclamation to the World memory work – You can get my free printables for this one here.We Choose Virtues – We’re doing character lessons with this. I’ll have a review and giveaway in November, but until then check out my introductory post here for links.
Young Readers Curriculum – This history set is from Heritage History and I’ll be posting my review late this week or early next. I love that it centers on reading aloud and that it fits in well with our regular history curriculum, which I’ll share next.Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation, & Epistles – This is our regular history curriculum from Simply Charlotte Mason. We read living books set in the time periods and it’s so much fun!
Starfall Reading and Writing Journals – This is a freebie Joseph and Emma are using from the free reading website Starfall.com. They’re starting with the Level I book and doing 2 pages per day generally, then we’ll move to level II.
Starfall ABC Printouts – Daniel is using the Level K ABC Printouts that are also free from Starfall.com. You can’t beat free!Typing Instructor for Kids Platinum 5.0 – Makayla has been all the way through this program once. After a nice break of several months she’s tackling it again using a more challenging goal. I linked the title to the site we purchased ours over a year ago because it has wonderful screen shots and descriptions of the entire program, but last I checked you can get it for $5.00 less on Amazon.
I think that covers all the items I’ve mentioned recently that we’re using. If you have questions about any of these, or anything else we use in our homeschool just leave a comment!
