the best method for homeschooling is to use a variety of books from different
producers of curriculum. The reason for this is that each publisher
tends to have different weaknesses and strengths. For the early
grades you may wish to use one curriculum for all subjects for convenience.
For the lower grades probably the best that we are apiano coverse of is the
Rod and Staff curriculum. (Rod and Staff Publishers, Inc. Crockett,
to look for used text books
To begin with, you might look for second hand text books
of your choice at home school book fairs. You may be able to get
them cheap or trade what you don't need any more for what you do
Keep your ears open for Christian schools that are closing
down or getting new text books. There may even be a Christian school
in your area that would be willing to sell you their used books that they
are replacing. Be careful though, they may want to charge you
more than the books are worth.
Check the used book section of your public library. Ours has
a used book store. You may find text books that were donated
that the library is selling.
Look in second hand stores and used book stores for the
text books you need. (Also, look for music books if you have a child
that is learning to play an instrument.)
If you have friends that are home schooling that have
kids older than yours, ask them if you can buy their used books from them,
if they are using the type you want. And don't forget that someone
else may want to buy your books! Keep books in good condition
so they will be worth selling. Have your kids write their answers
on paper instead of in the text book. Do not order new books every
year for every child. Keep the books they finish for your next child
that will need them.
Find useful books for your home school.
