Free Parenting & Homeschooling eBooks and Resources

 

Homeschooling is becoming a more popular choice for a number of reasons for families around the world. However much is still unkown about curriculum, socialisation, parenting, how to cope with running a home, looking after a family and homeschooling your children. And then disaster strikes, and perhaps the home becomes a single parent home. How does a single parent cope? How to avoid and/or identify areas that could become areas of concern? How can we do it all and still be great parents? How do we recognise that our child may have a learning difficulty or may be stronger in some aspects (subjects) than others? What curriculum, if any, do we choose to homeschool our child/children? Do we unschool or adopt another approach?

The books on this page aim to answer all those questions and more, also relating to general queries and questions as parents we will often ask ourselves.

Within this page you will also find absolutely fantastic resources that can be used as “alone” curriculum or as an addition to curriculum, or can be adapted to lapbooking, notebooking or whichever method of education you have elected.

What I can say is that scrolling through the pages you are bound to find something of value that you can make use of if not in your own home, classroom or homeschool, then you will know of someone who will find the information useful.

When I started St Aiden’s Homeschool some years ago it was with the intention of homeschooling my chldren after having NOT found a suitable curriculum. We are not spoiled for choice and the prices are astronimical. Added to the fact that I am a single parent, working full time at law (at that stage I was), homeschooling my kids and hosting and maintaining a website it seemed a waste not to share the resources we so loving researched, created and nurtured to the extent that they became eBooks. Not just printable worksheets – complete ebooks, unit studies with an immense amount of input and research into each one.

We decided to share these resources with many other families that we knew did not have the resources to pay for the ridiculously priced curriculum on offer in our country, particularly if one considers the poor quality that was on offer. It worked like a dream. Many thousands of families in South Africa now use our free ebooks as part of their daily homeschooling lives, and many parents have been inspired to undertake the same journey and start developing their own material which they willingly share.

While I also write books exclusively for a publisher and also for digital download now, my website is first and foremost in my mind and I keep it updated with fresh content constantly.

I hope that you will make use of a few of the tens of thousands of free resources we have available for teachers/homeschoolers/professionals/students/parents, and as you get to know St Aiden’s Homeschool, you will see that we stop not only at learning to read and write. We go as far as College. And we will continue to grow and continue to provide free educational material to those who otherwise would not have the opportunity of obtaining same.

With blessings to you on your homeschooling journey

Kids’ Activities and Games

Free Activity eBooks & Teacher/Parent Resources

Ideal for Preschool years and can be adapted to much older children.

These units can be used alone as unit studies, or incorporated into notebooking or lapbooking. Collectively they provide a number of years’ curriculum in a fun, informative way that encourages children to want to learn more. Books include writing activities, colouring, ccritical thinking skills, fine motor skills, wordsearches, mazes, crossword puzzles, unit studies, reading, comprehension, arts, crafts and other fun activities. Many include rhymes, poetry and activity plays for younger children and “circle time”. In all of my books we have made an effort to incorporate “learning is fun”.

St Aidens ~ Prek-3 ALphabet Picture Dictionary Activity Books
St Aiden’s, homeschooling in South Africa,These Picture Dictionary Books have been such a hit that many have been remodelled to incorporate even more activities. Some run into almost 200 pages but by the end of the book your chld will recognise the word, the letter, will have enhanced word/sound/picture recognition, and of course with the hundreds of activities, drawing, questions and answers, wordsearches, simple crossword puzzles your child will not even know he or she has been learning. Each dictionary can easily be enhanced with additional activities but should quite comfortably occupy a young child for a week, particularly when one gets involved with the cutting and pasting activities.

An e-book (short for electronic book, also written eBook) is the digital media equivalent of a conventional printed book. E-books are usually read on personal computers or smart phones, or on dedicated hardware devices known as e-book readers or e-book devices.
