A book list for the homeschool mom
It’s summertime and many homeschoolers are on break. But it’s not all rest and relaxation for a homeschool mom – we’re too busy getting ready for the new school year! With shopping and planning and printing and binding, homeschool moms are a busy bunch in the summer.
One of the ways I like to prepare for a new school year is by pulling out all my favorite homeschooling books and flipping through them for fresh inspiration.
Here are the books I’m reading this summer:
- The Well-Trained Mind – I have 2 editions of this book because I use it so often. It is my go-to source for getting ready for a new year. Each year I reread the sections that pertain to our coming school level.
- The Core – part reference, part inspiration, this book gives me the best of both! Bortins newest book, The Question, is on my shopping list this year.
- Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning – I just picked this up in January and have read parts of it but I want to read through the whole book during our time off.
- Teaching the Trivium – I won a copy from Living & Learning at Home (she’s been reading and posting about the book this year). Not sure I’ll read all of it (it’s a big book!) but I’ll be flipping through the parts that interest me.
- The Latin-Centered Curriculum – This book is a constant reminder to simplify and focus on the most important things.
Those are the books in my summer reading pile but I’m hoping to add a few new ones this year – so leave a comment and tell me about your favorite homeschooling references!
