Home School Wise | Home schooling guidance from beginning to burnout and beyond. Home School Wise Home schooling guidance from beginning to burnout and beyond. Skip to content Welcome to home schooling! Nurture Guide Lead Beloved Books Legal Issues Current Events Welcome to Home Schooling! Relax. Be creative. Enjoy time together. Learn to love learning. Home schooling is not public schooling. Get comfortable. Don’t plan on sitting at desks all day. Go with the flow of family life. Set priorities, but be willing to work around illnesses, births and other family events. Family comes first. Don’t buy everything you see. (I speak from experience.) Use the library. Find free stuff online. Enjoy being home and spending time together. If you are transitioning from public school, allow everyone to get used to being home. Find the joy of being together–then work on academics. When you are ready to begin, begin with the basics: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic–and History. Don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed with materials; keep things simple. Allow your children to follow their interests. Feed the flame. For five-year-olds: read stories; go on field trips (join a home schooling group to access ideas and opportunities); listen to good, varied music (classical, “Rory’s Little Broadway,” jazz, ragtime, Hap Palmer, etc); basic art supplies (crayons, paper, finger paints, playdough, Sculpey, watercolors and brushes); phonogram cards, McGuffey Readers and short, consistent lessons in beginning math. (Sources for materials listed below.) Watch Kristen’s presentation at the 2013 Agency Based Education Conference: “I’d like to homeschool, but where the heck do I start?” For specific tips on home schooling teens, please see Mentoring Teens. I have listed below some ideas to check out for all grade-levels. I have arranged them by subject and then by age-group, youngest first. They are just possibilities. You will not be able to use them all and there is plenty more where they came from. Again, the key is not to get overwhelmed. Just find things that meet your needs. Keep it simple. An inspiring, confidence-building introduction to homeschooling: A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola History Genevieve Foster’s Books (Great for younger children. Augustus Caesar through Lincoln.) The Story of the World (We use the audio cds in the car. This set provides an awesome birds-eye view of history. Some of this is not appropriate for very young children, particularly Vol. 3: Early Modern Times.) Language Arts Explode the Code McGuffey Readers (My children have usually been done with these and ready to try other beginning readers after the first or second volume.) Phonogram cards from Back Home Industries Language Mechanic (punctuation) and Word Roots from Critical Thinking Press Teach cursive writing. bhibooks teachingcursive Why teach cursive? Literature Read to them, or have them read aloud or silently, from great books. If they are just learning to read have them read aloud to you or an older sibling, so you can help as needed. Almost any book published in the U.S. before 1929 can be found electronically here: Gutenberg.org Wikibooks.org Find suggested reading lists here and here. Mathematics Teach standard algorithms, so they don’t need to use a calculator for everything. Information on what not to do: Utahns Against Common Core Some good math options are Miquon Math, Life of Fred, Ray’s Arithmetic and Teaching Textbooks, Wikibooks.org, Jacob’s Math Science Magic School Bus books and videos Home Science Tools Apologia Science Candy Experiments General Knowledge Zion Tube Hillsdale Academy Khan Academy Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? by Richard J. Maybury The Fallacy Detective (third item down; available in many home school catalogs and at Amazon) Webster’s 1828 Dictionary: Have them look up a word a week in that dictionary, a modern dictionary, and the Bible dictionary; write all definitions down in a notebook, distill the meaning and record it in their own words.

Looks like you have really put some time into this and I look forward to browsing through things. : 0) Diane Reply Kristen Chevrier says: March 1, 2013 at 5:26 PM Thanks, Diane. Reply Jamie Keith says: March 9, 2013 at 12:38 AM This info is great. My daughter is in 1st grade, and I have thus far used complete curriculum kits from one publisher, out of fear of getting confused and overwhelmed. I feel like my little girl gets stuck with too much writing in her workbooks for her age. I didn’t see Lexiareading listed. We had it last year and I thought it was wonderful. Thanks, Jamie Reply Kristen Chevrier says: March 9, 2013 at 1:06 PM Thanks, Jamie. I’m glad it’s helpful. When I wrote this I just listed the curricula I have actually used or reviewed. I will look at Lexiareading. Thanks for the tip. Reply amom says: April 10, 2013 at 8:58 PM Thank you for the homeschooling resources on your website!
