2016 Homeschool Brochure ER coverAre you new to homeschooling or looking for materials to supplement your homeschool curriculum? Evan-Moor has many quality resources that are ideal for homeschoolers! We understand that the choices can be overwhelming, so we’ve created a brochure of “Homeschool Top Picks” to provide you a quick guide across subject areas.

Take a look at the Evan-Moor Homeschool Brochure.

 

Three top recommendations:

Daily Paragraph Editing1. Daily Practice series: Our Daily Practice titles provide skills practice across grade levels and curriculum areas: language arts, reading, writing, vocabulary, math, science, and geography. These homeschool resources are paced for every day of the week, making lesson planning easy. Your child will feel a sense of accomplishment as he or she practices key skills in the brief daily lessons. At the end of the week, you will have a snapshot of the skills your child has mastered and an understanding of which skills require additional practice. View all daily practice titles and get free samplers here.

Skill Sharpeners - Spell & Write2. Skill Sharpeners series: These full-color student activity books are perfect for enrichment for your child. Skill Sharpeners titles include Math, Science, Reading, and Spell & Write. Skill Sharpeners can be used for independent practice at grade-level or above-grade level to give your child a challenge. For a struggling student, you can use Skill Sharpeners below-grade level for independent or guided practice. See an overview of the Skill Sharpeners series here. And, read a homeschooler’s review of Skill Sharpeners.

History Pockets - Ancient Civilizations, Grades 1-33. History Pockets series: A long-time homeschool favorite, these project-based lessons provide everything you need to bring history topics to life. Meaningful hands-on tasks engage your child in social studies topics. Check out History Pockets for grades 1–3 or History Pockets for grades 4–6.

  1. As a former classroom teacher, I know that Evan-Moor’s quality is unmatched for educational activities. Now as a homeschooler, Evan-Moor is my go-to resource for homeschooling. Both my kids and I enjoy the activities. Evan-Moor keeps us focused on what is important to learn, all while giving us flexibility to choose from so many learning options within TeacherFileBox!
