Welcome to Day 2 of 5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials! When we made the decision to homeschool, all I wanted to do was read and research. I wanted to get my hands on any book that I thought would be helpful to us as we started this new journey. Some of them have been on my shelf from the very beginning and I still use to this day, and some of them are fairly new to me and I know will be around for the long haul. This book helps you to design a homeschool curriculum from preschool through high school. I guess I was drawn to this book because we use an eclectic approach to homeschooling.
This was one of the first books I read when we decided to homeschool. Lisa Welchel you may remember her as Blair from The Facts of Lif e , showcases 15 families and how they are all different, yet make homeschooling work for their families. When we began this journey I had no clue what a homeschooling home or family looked like or how they functioned.
Whether you have one child or many, if you work full-time in or out of the home , homeschool all or only some of your children, this book showed me that it is possible, no matter your situation. I recently reviewed this book with the Schoolhouse Review Crew and was very happy with it. A Bible and homeschool mom devotions all in one — who could ask for more? Not only can I do my daily Bible reading with one of my favorite translations, NIV, but I can get some encouragement from a veteran homeschooler at the same time.
This Bible contains a devotion for everyday of the year that was written especially for homeschooling moms. I was really impressed with what I read and so much of it just made sense as to how children learn. So, since reading it, I have incorporated some of the classical teaching philosophies into our homeschool.
I love this book because it gives me lots of book lists broken down by age and book type.
- Bi-Level Strategies in Semi-Infinite Programming.
- Homeschooling Beyond the 3 R’s: Training in Worldview – Academy Northwest!

I like to includ living books into our learning whenever possible. This book helps me do that.

I can easily find books related to our studies since this book is broken down into books by grade and subject. This is another one of my first reads as a homeschooler. We started schooling when our oldest was just in Kindergarten, so this book seemed like a good place to start. I heard Carol speak at our local homeschool convention and she had so many great ideas to help wiggly learners, so I had to go buy her book on the topic. And boy, was it timely. If you are looking for a successful way to organize your home and homeschool, I highly recommend this book. Ah, Cathy Duffy!
Even though she now has a website with even more reviews plus a new edition of this book, that now has Top Picks , I still go back to this book often. And each of the top picks are thoroughly reviewed in the second half of the book. This is an excellent resource for the Christian, homeschooling family. This almost page book is full of all kinds of resources for teaching a huge array of topics and subjects. I use this often to find ideas to supplement our curriculum.guewarmfosephe.ml
