Yesterday I put up a small list of some of our favorite books and today I’ll list some of our favorite homeschooling resources.
History – TruthQuest History. Honestly, we have just started this program, but we love it! Traditionally history is taught from a humanistic standpoint, meaning it is really elevating man. This history program is taught from a different perspective-showing how God has worked throughout time to accomplish His will.
Math – Math U See. Confession time – I stink at math! This program makes it so easy for me to teach my children this
horrid subject. Math U See begins with simple counting and works all the way to Calculus-yikes! The program is not based on grade levels, but builds on skills in a way that makes sense. For each lesson we pop in the DVD and he teaches the mama how to do the problems using manipulatives, then we are able to teach our kids.
Language Arts – For grammar we are using Daily Grammar, and I love that it is simple, short and FREE! We read a lot of quality books and the kids also do quite a bit of writing. I am still looking for a good spelling program, that is not just memorizing lists.
I think our very favorite homeschool resource is Vision Forum. I know that there are many people who do not agree with their philosophy, but we have not found one thing that does not line up with the Bible. They are counter-cultural in so many areas and I believe that is why some find them offensive. We have loved every product that we have purchased from them and since they are based in San Antonio, we are looking forward to attending some of their conferences.
What are your favorite homeschool resources? If that is not applicable, then what was your favorite subject in school and why?
