Free and Low Cost “Whole”istic Learning Opportunities: Reading

We believe in a “whole”istic approach to learning (which is generally free and low cost). So what does that mean to us for reading? is like this...

  • Read magazine and newspaper articles of interest locating unfamiliar words and narrating what the reading was about.
  • Phone book
  • Poems
  • Bible
  • Encyclopedias
  • Short nonfiction selections
  • Fiction
  • Picture books
  • Short stories
  • Vignettes
  • Biographies
  • Historical accounts
  • Postcards
  • Old letters
  • Quotes
  • Song lyrics
  • Recipes
  • Brochures
  • Maps
  • Charts and graphs
  • Catalogs
  • Menus
  • Almanacs
  • Manuals
  • Guidebooks
  • Junk mail
  • Sell old books and hunt for new ones at thrift stores and yard sales
  • Check out the free section for books in the e-reader section
  • Borrow from the library and friend’s homeschool shelves
  • Classics are available for free online
  • And our library card is well worn

Wishing you homeschool blessings,
