Homeschooling Resources

Hi all!

I wanted to share a few of our homeschooling resources today! I know you don't all homeschool, but lately I have gotten a lot of questions from parents whose kids go to school - either about how they can also homeschool, or how they can enrich their children's education during non-school hours.

So I'm writing a really quick post for all of you - there is a lot I'm not going to be able to include here, but some of this should get you started! Here are some of the resources we use or recommend.

Do you want your kids reading more in Hebrew? Check out this introductory deal to Maariv Kids magazines, including one issue of National Geographic Kids in Hebrew! The deal will cost you just 10 shekels for an introductory package (4 magazines)! (I believe this is for Israeli addresses only.)

If you want to get your kids some classic magazines in English, consider Highlights magazines. They are inexpensive and they can be shipped to international addresses. It's a great way to keep them in tune with their English speaking peers around the world! Click here to subscribe, and Save $5 on Highlights Magazines!

I also really like the Cricket family of magazines - and there are often sales for them. We love getting the digital editions for our ipad or tablet, so we don't have to pay international shipping fees.

Anytime you're looking for ideas for curriculum, free or not, I highly recommend checking out the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op. Many deals are online and can be purchased by anyone in the world. Other deals, that are physical materials, often require a US shipping address.

Educents also has great deals for homeschoolers and for enrichment programs. They often have great deals on certain books - like the Life of Fred series - but I do recommend comparing prices before you buy.
I also rely on our Kindles - we get lots of free books for it, as well as inexpensive books from Amazon! My kids are HUGE readers, so the kindles are often in use. I'll post an update when Kindles go on sale - there's a big sale coming up soon!

If your homeschool students are ready to start studying at a college level, the Open University allows homeschoolers into their programs, though you will need to attend a guidance session and interview and convince them you're ready! Check it out today!

Every so often, we take a day to go to a Science Museum. MadaTech has Free Wednesdays still - though it's coming to an end soon. Check it out soon!

I hope to start sharing homeschooling ideas and resources about once per week, so be sure to check back here next week for more!

Let me know in the comments what you're looking for!
