Easy Grammar – I do NOT get the one marked “student workbook”. My copy has the same worksheets but the answers are in the back. If you have a child who might be tempted, get the one marked “student workbook”, but you might want to grab the other one, too, because it has a lot of helpful teaching information in it. You could also just get the one I use (not student workbook) and tear out or copy the worksheet pages. Also available on ChristianBook.com by clicking here.
Daily Grams – I don’t get the student workbook so mine has the answers in the back. If you have a child who might be tempted to make use of that, get the one marked “Student Workbook” for your grade.
Wordly Wise – This is our vocabulary program workbook. Included each week are definition and sentence structure exercises, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and more. I also use the words each week as our spelling words for the week in the Spelling City app (more info lower on this list).
Positive Action Bible Curriculum – workbook. This is our Bible curriculum for the year. Each lesson includes vocabulary, memory verse, reading comprehension, and life applicant exercises.
- This is difficult to find on Amazon.com so I recommend purchasing from Christianbook.com.
Apologia Anatomy and Physiology – This series of highly engaging science books are loved by parents and kids alike. The writing style, variety of photos, and layout keep the pace going and interest at it’s peak! I teach this book by using the corresponding lap book from A Journey Through Learning.
Science In The Beginning by Dr Jay Wile – This is an additional science book we use with short lessons (2-3 pages) and an experiment with each lesson that truly uses thing found around the home.
- This book is difficult to find on Amazon so I recommend ChristianBook.com, click here to see it.
A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks – This website has countless lap books that can help make teaching a variety of subjects easy as pie! If you have a child who likes to “do” rather than just listen and read, lap books can make all the difference in the world and keep them excited about learning. I use their lap books to teach Apologia Sciences.
Story of Our World Text Books and Activity Books – This is the most fascinating history book I have ever read. These books are so interesting that this is the one reason why we started studying history in two hour segments, so we could read “just a little more” each day.
Teaching Textbooks Math – This is the math program that we LOVE! Details in video. This link will take you to all of the Teaching Textbooks grade and product selections.
