Resources

There are SO many homeschool resources, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

More and more publishers are targeting the homeschool market, so the choices keep expanding (not always with high quality resources). This page includes some of my favorite homeschool resources.

Subscribe to the blog to be updated with posts that will help you sort through the clutter of homeschool marketing and find the gems.

I’m always up for adding new, great resources to this page, so if you have one you’d like to share, send me an email and I’ll gladly check it out and post it for others to use.

Books:

The Read-Aloud Handbook – If you’re considering homeschooling, not considering homeschooling, whatever.  Every parent should own a copy.

 

 

 

Sarah Mackenzie’s debut book is now a standard on homeschool moms’ shelves everywhere. Founder of the Read-Aloud Revival, Sarah has useful, practical advice for the overwhelmed homeschooling mama. This is one of very few books I re-read regularly.

 

 

Charlotte Mason’s first volume, for teaching children under the age of 9. This is the perfect place to start your homeschooling journey. CM’s work is available for free digitally, but you’ll want to be able to dog-ear and write in the margins of this affordable, high quality paperback edition.

 

 

Susan Wise Bauer’s massive handbook is everything from schedules, to book lists, to educational philosophy. She tells you exactly what books you need for Every. Single. Year. of a child’s whole education. This is another one you’ll want to bookmark, markup, and refer to over the years.

 

 

Audio & Articles:

Lit2Go – A service of the University of South Florida.  Classic audiobooks and stories for your iPod, for FREE.  Seriously, awesome, awesome resource.  You can find them on iTunes too.  And keep checking back; their content changes when new books become available.

The Circe Institute logoCirce Institute – Andrew Kern and his organization are on the forefront of the classical education movement.  Circe recognizes our children’s humanity and works to cultivate them into virtuous persons instead of cookie-cut them into economic cogs like most of the education which surrounds us.  I particularly get a lot from their audio resources.

scl_logo_web_linksSociety for Classical Learning – Though nursing babies has kept me from attending in-person, these guys have great audio recordings of their past conferences.  I love to listen while cleaning house; it really helps me wrap my head around educational  philosophy.

 

 

Legal:

logo_colorHome School Legal Defense Association – I consider this almost like homeschooling insurance. If any legal issue should crop up, I have a team of lawyers on my side. As a military family who moves frequently, they’re especially helpful in helping me make sure we’re homeschooling legally whenever we move. Click on your state to find out how to homeschool legally in your state and keep up on news and pending legislation.

Nice to meet you!

Nice to meet you!

I’m Rhiannon.

You can call me Rhi for short (as in “rewrite”). I’m a fiercely independent homeschooling mom of five, a Navy wife of almost 13 years, and a creator of various things: articles, a monthly newsletter, quilts, furniture, and the occasional knitted scarf. This is the site where I write about our homeschool journey and news and happenings in the homeschool world. more about me.

  • Took the crew to the PEZ factory this weekend. So fun! Plus, we got them sugared up enough that nobody cried at IKEA afterward. #winning #didyouknow that PEZ was originally a peppermint meant as an alternative to smoking? The name comes from the German word “pfeffermintz.” #nowyouknow 😘
  • Some days you have to take a picture, it’s so unwieldy. #sahm #homeschoolmomlife
  • I am one to lift the heavy thing all by myself. I’m prone, actually, to attempting to do ALL the things on my own. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned in this #navylife, it’s that you can’t survive unless you have community. The same goes for being a #homeschoolmom or #sahm (or a human, generally).
.
So often, I think women think they can go it alone, but we need community more than we know. It’s all too easy to shrivel up inside our own bitter loneliness. We need both the tangible help of others and their intangible fellowship of prayers and council, too.
.
Today I get to be over at @theglorioustable chatting about community. Check it out (link in profile), and then go call a friend and schedule a coffee date! ☕️☕️

  • Uh Oh. We just discovered the life changing taste that is homemade granola. It’s no doubt a good thing that I hadn’t tried this before, because now the family is going to demand this stays in stock. #soyummy #homemade #sahm #betterthanskittles
  • Happy 119th birthday, U.S. Submarine Force! Y’all know how to party here in the Submarine Capital of the World. Thanks to the lovely and talented @alisanomaly for taming my locks. And thank you to my handsome sailor for a fun night out! #milspouse
  • First attempt at bubbles. Don’t know what I’m doing, but we needed to get laundry little more organized and this was a fun way to do it. #procrastination #watercolor #bravewriterlifestyle #homeschool #chores
