After many requests, here is a video full of our favourite resources we have used through our almost 6 years of home educating/ homeschooling.
Some of the resources are specific, and some are left more open. At the end of the video, I have done a Q&A answering all of the questions I received via our instagram question box!
I really hope this video helps, but please remember you have numerous resources available to you that are FREE. (Look out for a FREE home ed resources Vlog coming soon!)
For a list of some of the resources mentioned in the video, with links, please scroll to below the video!
For more structured Maths, English and Science that follows the National Curriculum.
A banded book rental service.
The most incredible hub of unending resources for ANY topic you want to learn!
The most perfect, nature focused, year long curriculum to really give your children an in-depth understanding of nature and its many wonders.
Great computer game/ iPad app that teaches little ones to read and do maths through a game as bright and eye-catching as any other iPad game!
A new resource we’ve added to teach the children British history beyond the white washed version!
Workbooks designed to help visual learners/dyslexic learners.
Family games aimed at younger learners, to teach basic skills without them even realising they’re learning.
Inclusive Sex Ed Books
There’s more than just these, but we LOVE Sex is a Funny Word, and What Makes a Baby, both by Cory Silverberg. They’re both super inclusive in their wording and imagery. Another good one is It’s Perfectly Normal by Robie H Harris.
It really should go without saying that including authors and characters of all races, cultures, genders, identities and experiences is perhaps one of the most important educational resources around. For parents also.
We get a lot of our craft supplies and clay from here!
Subscription craft kits for younger children.
Art tutorial videos for primary aged children.
Art tutorial videos for secondary aged children.
Another online maths games platform. (commissionable link)
A fantastic magazine for nature loving kids!!
Another firm favourite for our nature loving oldest!! 4 years of this one, and still excited for every magazine!
The Big Life Journal
An AMAZING growth mindset journal for children. They also have some downloadable content too!
