As many of you know The Well-Trained Mind is the book I read that began the Classical Method in our home. It’s the book that I use for my planning, for motivation and for curriculum suggestions. I didn’t physically read the entire thing, but I do own it and do suggest getting it on audible if you don’t have time to read them.
highly recommend this one:
The next book I used, before I found The Well-Trained Mind, is Home Learning Year by Year: How to Design a Homeschool Curriculum from Preschool through High School. I did like this book, and when I did kindergarten with my oldest, I used this as my guide about what I should teach her in Kindergarten. I recommend if you need some guidance on what a child should learn in each grade.
12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You a great book that helped me get my phone usage under control.
How to Break Up with Your Phone. Another great read for unplugging.
Teaching From Rest: this is probably my favorite book about encouragement for mommy’s who want to homeschool. I highly recommend it.
Homeschool Bravely. Incredible book! Great for motivation and inspiration.
I just finished Plan Your Year and it was wonderful. Full of great ideas and inspiration for planning your school year.
Memory-Making Mom: Building Traditions That Breathe Life Into Your Home this is what I’m currently reading, I’m halfway through and really love it so far. It’s helped me grow as a mother and that’s what I look for with these books I read.
The Read Aloud Family was one that really helped me get “serious” about reading to my girls. It is so lighthearted and well written, I also love the narrator and what she brings to the audible book. I have only completed the first half of this book and will be starting it over after I complete Memory Making Mom.
Mere Motherhood: I loved this read, it was so encouraging and eye opening. It was written by a homeschool mom who was done homeschooling and reflecting on her journey.
Better Together: I really loved this one too.
Bible: this one speaks for itself I have a different cover, but I love this one!
