I am sure that this is not a first but I am just getting started in the homeschool process. I have 2 that will be entering the first. Since I am new I am starting to look at packets that touch on all the subjects. I don't know where to start or really what to do. I am also looking for ideas on good reads for me to help me and the kids as we start this year! Thanks for any help! Very Happy

Some of your choices for books will depend on your teaching style and your children's learning style. Do they love workbooks? Do they like to make crafts a lot? Do they like to listen to books on tape?

These and more are all things to consider. Many parents just look at what is comfortable for them and then a few months down the road everyone hates school.

For first grade I would recommend reading lots of picture books related to History and Science. (I have book lists on my website). My son and I learned so much from reading picture books that we didn't even need a boring textbook. If your children need to learn to read, I taught all 4 of my children to read with Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.

We loved All About Spelling and Math U See has been our favorite for Math although I made up our own skip counting songs. Spectrum Math is good too and inexpensive.

If you give me a little more info on your children I might be able to recommend more stuff for you. Hope this helps.

This is also our 1st yr hs too & so far the BEST advice i was given was to read Mary Pride's "Complete Guide To Homeschooling". That book was so helpul to our family!
