Favorite Resources

This page is a work in progress.  It will be added to as our family discovers new resources and experiences teaching new grades and stages.  The only child we have homeschooled entirely from the start is still in the Knowledge Level, so this list represents a possible plan of what our children might learn.

This is a list of our family’s “favorite” resources and not a comprehensive list.  For us, a favorite is something the kids ask to do again and again or that we find highly effective in teaching what we want our kids to learn.  We might not use the same resources with each kid or even use the same resources in the same way with each kid.  These are simply the resources we have enjoyed the best.

And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

~ Deuteronomy 11:19 ~

“The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright and out of that knowledge to love Him. To imitate him, to be like Him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection.”

~ John Milton ~

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

~ William Butler Yeats ~
