Aug 17, 2007
When people decide upon homeschooling their children, certain criteria should be considered. The essentials like the syllabus, methods of teaching and most importantly the course material to be referred to, should be selected according to the capacity of the childs grasping power and the level of the prescribed syllabus.

Basic Home Schooling Books

Following are a few basic Home Schooling books that should be included in every homeschooling kit:

. The American Heritage Student dictionary
. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus
. The American Heritage High School dictionary

The given reference books are helpful to shape the young minds. They allow the children to learn new definitions, spellings, meanings, synonyms and antonyms that assist their effective usage. The students learn many skills, while learning.

Saving Money on Home Schooling Books and Home School Supplies

Home Schooling expenses are sizeable and sadly they are not tax deductible. However, luckily many retailers have home school discount schemes. They are only given after verifying the identification of the parent and child. Stores accept a home school letterhead or school ID card, preferably from a local homeschooling support group. Some of the national retailers who offer money-saving offers include Staple Office Supplies, Joann Crafts and Border Bookstores.

Given below are some of the outlets where you can find books on homeschooling:

. Direct Buying.

People who are on the look out for books with traditional syllabi should buy from the publishing company directly. This not only makes transactions easier and flawless, but also makes it convenient to directly order the books. This could also be done by logging on to the company website and getting the books shipped. Besides, you can call the company and have the books delivered to your doorstep.

. Block Sales or Flea Market.

Families usually take an off from homeschooling during summer, very similar to the regular school students. As homeschooling is becoming increasingly popular, many parents offer educational material at church or yard sales. A used or a new schoolbook is easily available for few dollars, at any of these sources.

. The Internet.

Most of the homeschooling material is available on various websites. You can avail of great deals at auctions and book-swaps and you can also identify parents selling used books online.

Sometimes, the surplus books are given to schools, to attract more business. Schoolteachers very often sell these on Ebay. You can avail of a decent and reasonable price than the charges levied by the original book company.

. Local Stores.

Classic workbooks and other books can be easily found at stores like Target, Walmart and Kmart. You can access the books in the reading section, before you buy them. Teachers workbooks and other home schooling material are usually needed throughout the year.

Many websites also offer software, games, workbooks, booklets and more. However, they increase the prices and often the supplies are common on all the major home schooling material websites.

It is advisable to maintain the books and supplies, so that you can swap them with other homeschooling students when and as the need arises.
