Home Library

 

At Reedy Creek, we want to help children build home libraries filled with living books. Our recommendations and a sample list from our curriculum provider Amblesideonline is below. If you are just starting out homeschooling at year 1, this would be a great book list to begin with. (We will not be using these books with your children this year. We just like them a lot. You can find most of them at amazon, along with my book, A Touch of the Infinite.)

Other supplementary items might include:

rubber boots
bug spray
sunscreen
sun hats
2 hardcover clothbound notebooks
(nature notebook and commonplace book for favorite sayings and thoughts)
prismacolor colored pencils
watercolor paints
a paint smock (or one of Dad’s old shirts)
a willing heart and an open mind
