Homeschool Must Haves

Homeschool Must Haves

I call these "must haves" but I use that term loosely because, in reality, things in this world are nice to have but true necessities are on a very short list. 😉 The way we acquired these things were either through garage sales, gifts or Amazon Gift Cards. We are almost done with our 8th year of homeschooling and these are links (mostly on Amazon) to some of our favorite resources for homeschooling. Our children range in ages from 16 mths to 12 years and include boys and one girl.

Everything listed here is something we actually own, use and love. If you choose to purchase through our Amazon referral link we receive a portion of the payment. Many thanks if you do!

Helpful Items

Where Do Sharks Cross Mountain Peaks (lots of topical information and I really liked the information about rainbows.)

The Year at Maple Hill Farm
A is for Apple 
**We have lots and lots of books in our home! Most of them I pick up very cheaply at garage sales and library books sales. However, the ones I list here are ones I would be willing to actually pay full price for because I love them so much.
