Welcome to Living Books For Life!
I’m a homeschooling Mom to five elementary school age kids. My husband is a self-employed sculptor and I produce home schooling materials whenever I get one of my ‘great ideas!’ I love many classical and Charlotte Mason ideas, but I love simple things that work. I’ve noticed a huge lack of Canadian home schooling resources and I’m excited to be a part of growing this area. As I go along, I develop resources that I need for my own family. Those years working in the public school system in learning assistance were really useful!
- Books that meet British Columbia’s learning outcomes for Social Studies, Science, and Health & Career-from Kindergarten to Grade 5
These books will also meet many learning outcomes in the other Canadian Provinces, and the Science and Health & Career will be useful anywhere in the world. To learn more about these, click on ‘Books that Meet Outcomes’
- Book of Centuries
-this book can be used worldwide by anyone above the age of about 9 years old up through adulthood. This is your own personal record of history. You create your own symbols and file in what you’ve learned throughout history as you learn it. Click on ‘Book of Centuries’
- Learning from the Masters
-this is an amazingly simple method of teaching grammar, spelling, and punctuation to a variety of age levels. The method worked so effectively for my own kids that I couldn’t resist putting a book together. Click on ‘Writing, Grammar, and Spelling Method’
- Our Family’s Favourite Poems
-this is a simple blank book for you to have your kids write in their own favourite poems with room for pictures. Poetry should be enjoyed and remembered, and the love of them should not be destroyed! I don’t have a page for this book-it’s a simple 100 page book with a nice cover that costs $12. If you’re interested, send me an email.
- A Blog
Our family has some crazy adventures. My husband is a self-employed sculptor-and although he went through public school, I realized a few years ago that he is the original ‘home schooler’ in our family. He’s the one who taught us that you can read books, experiment, and end up pouring 1000+ degree bronze sculptures in our back yard. Together, we produced 5 interesting and amazing kids within 7 years of each other. Then our eldest decided to become a pig farmer to support people in Guatemala… the adventure just never ceases to amaze me! I do my best to write every Monday, but we’re a very busy family, so you’ll have to give us an extra heaping of grace!
-An Audio Book
This is a true living book that I just love. I had a professional voice actress record it and I’m selling it for the incredibly cheap price of $5 for the full download. Our whole family enjoys this and I just couldn’t believe it wasn’t available in an audio before.
-Other things I recommend
This is a page where I just share some of the things that have helped us. Feel free to share some of your favourite resources!
To Place an Order
You may use a credit card through paypal-simply select the amount of books you would like to purchase and when you are given an opportunity to write a message to the seller, simply let me know which books you are buying.
To place an order with shipping outside of British Columbia, simply email me for instructions.
I also accept Purchase Orders from a variety of home schooling schools, especially in British Columbia. Simply send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you’d like to order, which school you are with, your support teacher’s name, and your purchase order number.
Similar to my 5 children, this website often chooses to ignore instruction! This is frustrating! If you try to place an order with me using the paypal links, and it doesn’t go through, please simply send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll put it through manually. My apologies for the hassle!
