10 Of My Favorite Homeschool Resources

As a homeschooling parent, I know how important it is to have the right tools and resources to engage and inspire children to learn. Over the years, I’ve tried and tested countless products and materials, and I’ve finally compiled a list of my all-time favorite homeschool resources. These resources have been instrumental in making our homeschooling journey both fun and effective. Whether you’re a seasoned homeschooler or just getting started, these resources are sure to help make learning more enjoyable and simplified for your children. 

60 TIPS FROM 60 YEARS EBOOK BANNER

Having 8 kids, there were many years when I had multiple students in the elementary grades. Review is such an important thing at that time, as we want them to get their math facts, phonics sounds, etc. down pat. This is where some of those well-loved resources came into play for me.

These were like games to my kids, yet they were learning and reviewing. It saved me time daily that I would have been spending doing flashcards with multiple children, or other types of review/teaching.

Being able to review on their own as part of their school work,  gave my kids a sense of independence while taking away some of my fear about whether they were really “getting” it.

Below I am going to share several of my favorite resources that helped make school a little bit easier for me. 

So, without further ado, let’s dive into some of my favorite homeschool resources!

Resources To Make Homeschool Learning More Engaging and Fun

CALCULADDER MATH DRILLS

Calculadder Homeschool Curriculum - Tools to make homeschool learning more fun!

This is a  great way to reinforce math facts, on a daily basis.

Each child repeats a given drill each day until he can complete it correctly within ­in that drill’s suggested time goal (two to five minutes). Most kids can advance one drill Level about every two weeks or ten tries, although individual rates vary.

Learning MATH WRAP-UP KEY

LEARNING WRAP-UPS SELF-CORRECTING Math Intro Key Kit with Self Correcting Math Problems for Kids Grade Level K-5

 

This is just another way of doing math drills with your kids. It worked well for a couple of the kids that didn’t write fast, and were frustrated with Calculadder.

For one of my kids, I got the Learning Wrap-Ups 10-days to Mastery Book. This set of lessons is to bring the student to mastery in 10 days. It has a lot of review, but with a variety of methods to keep it interesting. 

Alpha-Phonics A Primer for Beginning Readers

Alpha Phonics A Primer For Beginning Readers by Samuel Blumenfeld.

This is a great resource to help your kids learn their phonics. It is an effective, step-by-step intensive phonics program for teaching reading to beginners of all ages. Not anything flashy, but it gets the job done. Having the kids be able to do some phonics practice without me was a great time saver daily.

Over the years that I homeschooled my kids, there were some incredible resources I used. But in the years since, I have partnered with some amazing creators who have curated, written, and designed curriculum and resources that I’m proud to share with my readers. I think you’ll love these when you bring them into your homeschool!
