New To Homeschool? Start Here:

I have so many resources I don't know where to begin-- so I thought for now I'd just list them.  I'll add to this list as I have time.  (These are all the "what-I-wish-I-would-have-had" items and all the "oh-I'm-so-glad-I-DID-have-items I've run across in my first three years of homeschooling.)

Books for Mom (about homeschooling -- see parenting for others recommended)
Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks
Educating the Wholehearted Child
For the Children's Sake
Let Us Highly Resolve
Debra Bell's Ultimate Schooling Guide

These books are my favorite's because they cover the whole breadth of the topic of homeschooling from the "whys" to the "hows" and everything in between!

Laminator-- This is a MUST have for all homeschoolers of elementary ages on down.  I'm not sure how I lived without it before.

Photo Stacking Blocks - I use these in conjunction with the concept review cards as seen on the Education Cubes site by Mama Jenn. (My kids LOVE when we use these!)

Comb Binder -- this fairly inexpensive one from Fellowes has suited our needs beautifully.  Now I can toss aside those regular binders that have forever taken up too much of my space and replace them with books bound by my wonderfully handy new machine.  I use this ALL THE TIME and one fun way we'll do soon is to make our own books.  The kids will be sure to enjoy binding their own work.

For Tots (Resources/Materials for those 18 Mo. - 4 yrs.)

For Littles (4-5)

For Little Ladies and Little Men (6-8)

NIrV -- what we currently use for the boys.  Easier to read but follows closely to the NIV, which is what our current church uses.

Jesus Story Book -- we have yet to own one of these Bibles but we have read through it and enjoy the storylike nature that stays true to the Word's central purpose: JESUS CHRST!!

Beginner Bible -- what we use currently for our boys' emergent reader reading time.  Love that they can read the stories from God's Word on their own and they love the pictures =)

The Child's Story Bible -- currently use during our Bible story time in the beginning of the day.  Accurate to Word, story-like in approach, tells full story but adds some further explanation if needed.

(My husband and I use a variety of Bibles for our own personal study time.  I have only listed those we use currently with our kids.)
