A is for Alphabet (Part 1 - A-L)
I love lists.
And a dear friend pointed me to this fun list on another blog and I thought I would join in.
So these are my favorite, alphabetized, homeschooling resources.
A - A History of US - These books are a great compliment to United States history. Fun to read, but be warned that they are from a secular perspective.
B - Big Truths for Little Kids - We used this a couple of years ago to introduce our children to the Children's Catechism. A great resource for younger ones.
C - Classical Academic Press - Right now I am reading through a logic book this company sells and I am loving it. More to come on this product in a future post.
D - Draw, Write, Now - This is a fun way to get your younger ones to start drawing with simple step by step instructions, with copywork and writing tips.
E - English From the Roots Up - We love this easy and simple way to learn Greek and Latin roots. Good for all ages.
F - First Language Lessons - I am using this for my younger two, and am loving the cumulative approach to grammar.
G - Galloping the Globe - Our family used this curriculum a few years ago and had such a fun time with it. We learned how to do origami, ate Bimibap, and mapped the whole world.
H - Hank the Cowdog - Have a reluctant reader? I do. And these hilarious books will make them not want to stop reading.
I - I Spy series - These fun books are perfect to give my youngest when I need her to sit quietly during a lesson for the older kids.
J - Jane Eyre - Okay, I guess I found a way to sneak one of my favorite books in here....this one my older two have read and someday the younger ones will enjoy it too.
K - Kingfisher History Encyclopedia - A great resource for history. Good photos, illustrations, and summaries of world history from the beginning to the present.
L - Landmark Books - Oh, how I love thee. These well written, historical fiction books written in the 50's are such a wonderful addition to our history study. We have about 45 of them, and I am always on the look out at used book sales for more. (I did link to a site that only sells the 'modern' Landmark books....I would highly recommend looking for the originals at books sales and on ebay.)
And that's all the time I have tonight! Look for the rest of my alphabet soon....
