Re: just starting out...books?

I recommend all newbies pick up a copy of Cathy Duffy's top 101 picks.
She helps pinpoint learning styles too which is great!

We do like the Easy Grammar for English but I also picked up these for extra work:

They are very simple books, a lot like Rod and Staff which a lot of families like for English (you can actually write in these books though unlike Rod and Staff books)

Our favorites for math have been Teaching Textbooks and Math U See.

There are many great spelling programs out there as well!

I really like Cathy Duffy's website for advice when picking things for our family.
For a sure-fire humdinger of a thread start one on:The Duggars,Government Assistance, Politics, Crickets,
Religion,Circumcision, Infant Ear Piercing,Spanking,Breast Milk vs Formula,Feeding kids Fast Food
/ Beans & Rice, Sniffing Butt, or Vaccinating.
