First Grade Reading List

Let’s talk reading lists! And I mean REAL reading lists. Books that your kiddo is expected to read. I feel like all of the reading lists I find, especially for the lower elementary years, are for read alouds. Now, read alouds are great! They are necessary. But, I need a go-to list of books for my kids to read themselves, too. Enter, my first grade reading list.

Kid’s Books About the Ocean

We dove into reading this month and learned all about the ocean. We’ve been living at the beach so natural learning started to happen and questions came up every day. We found some really cute books to learn about some favorite sea creatures. Here are eight kid’s books about the ocean.

Using Usborne Books in your Homeschool

We believe in a relaxed, child-led approach to education allowing the kids to pursue their interests. Because of this, I like to have books on lots of various subjects available to them. When my kids have a question, my famous line is, “We have a book about that!” Books are available for literally every subject. They are made for tough little readers and are surprisingly durable compared to a lot of other books we have! Usborne Books and More just never disappoints me! Let me show you how you can add Usborne Books in your homeschool.

Twaddle Books are Welcome in our Homeschool

We’ve started adapting a Charlotte Mason inspired homeschool over the past year. I love the relaxed ways of Charlotte Mason curriculum and the style of learning that comes along with it. But, one thing I just can’t accept is the rule about twaddle books. Sometimes, we just need silly nonsense in our lives, so twaddle books are welcome in our homeschool.
