Alright. It’s summer. But we homeschool year-round. I’ve been having a hard time focusing on any school, let alone science. (and I’ll throw in math too!) So I decided I would give myself a break from the formal school plan for the next few weeks while we get our traveling, soccer practice, and swimming finished for the summer.
I’m all about E.A.S.Y! I love unit studies for science. In fact we are in the middle of astronomy right now. But life has been crazy! And using library books is easy. So instead of formal science/math lessons, the other day I found all the books I could from three specific series. I think they are wonderful! And some of these we have read numerous times. And the kids learn more and more after each reading.
LET’S READ AND FIND OUT SCIENCE: This is one of my all time favorite science series. It is not from a Biblical worldview, so we talk about the “millions of years” at times. But the books are well written.
GAIL GIBBONS: I am amazed by the quantity and quality of her books. And the artwork is always wonderful. (Again, “millions of years” issues, but I handle it.)
These are the ones we have checked out right now.
MATHSTART by Stuart J. Murphy: These books are so fun! And they show the practicality behind math objectives on a kid’s level.
These are the books we have checked out right now. They come in THREE LEVELS.
I love books. I plan on printing out the lists from the previous websites and using them as a resource to be sure we read them all!!
