Homeschooling with Usborne Books

Are you a homeschool parent who likes to include lots of quality reading material in your homeschool curriculum? Then look no further! With Usborne books, you can create your own reading and research libraries for every grade.

How you may ask? It’s actually pretty simple!

* Start by selecting your child’s grade

* Choose 1-2 books for each subject (math, geography, reading, writing, social studies)

* Place your order OR contact me to host an Usborne Facebook Party and earn FREE and discounted books!

Putting your own curriculum together is so much fun and allows the opportunity for children to lead in their education. What does this mean exactly? We all know that every child learns differently and every day changes depending on so many factors. When we let our children lead in education, it means that we can teach them about their favorite subjects, and they still learn exactly what they should be learning for their particular grade. You can be as creative as you like and don’t be afraid to have FUN with your children!

I’ve put together a list of books that are geared towards each grade level. This will help you in selecting books you might need as you go through each subject. You can also use the search tool on the right of my Usborne store to find exactly what you need.
