From time to time I thought it would be good to give some ideas/thoughts about things that would interest homeschooling moms/families: books, curricula, personal products, etc.
Today I wanted to give my thoughts on some workbooks we use - the Spectrum workbooks by Frank Schaffer Publications.
We use the writing, math, phonics and geography workbooks to help supplement our studies. They are not necessarily designed as a stand-alone text, but they really are excellent for extra practice and the math is really good to practice with the grade-level state standards.
The math workbooks also have pre- and post-chapter tests, and they are pretty detailed. They are great to see if the child "gets it".
You can find these workbooks at Books-a-Million and you can also go to their website: www.frankschaffer.com.
