Tentative Homeschooling Plan

Here is my current tentative homeschooling plan for augmenting Bible class with Lutheran books and topics. We use Memoria Press‘s Christian Studies series, which covers things like biblical literacy & vocabulary, biblical geography, memory work, timeline stuff, but I want to be talking about other stuff, too, even at young ages, using books with real Lutheran substance when I can.

Amazon Print Deal

Hey, there is an Amazon print deal going on, ending July 17th, TUESDAY (tomorrow or today)! Save $5 on print book orders of $20 or more. The two tricks to it is that books have to ship from Amazon and not a third party vendor, and you need to enter promo code PRIMEBOOKS18 at checkout to qualify.

PS. Yes, I’m an Amazon Affiliate. I might get a slight finder fee from Amazon at absolutely no cost to you whatsoever if you purchase after following one of my links. See full disclosure on my sidebar or About page.

PPS. SOME of the books on my wishlist seem to be marked down for Amazon Prime Days, but not too many. 🙁 Of course, ha, I’m not actually a Prime member, so feel free to check for yourselves, too, whether you’re a Primer or not.

Happy reading and writing!

Homeschooling book lists?

Would I be crazy if I tried to put together homeschooling book lists? I’m thinking about thirty books a year, allowing repeats, for various ages.

Do they already exist somewhere? Wouldn’t such lists be handy?

I want to put together a Lutheran homeschooling resource page for my website. Anything else you’d like to see on there? (But, sorry, I’m not up for reviewing curriculum!)

Rick Riordan

I do not always read the books I intend to read. Sometimes, admittedly, I take a break and binge-read YA. So, my question for you today is how in the world is Rick Riordan so prolific?!?!

Shelley Shephard Gray

Looking for more Lutheran authors? Me, too, as always! 🙂 So today I’ll point to Shelley Shephard Gray, who writes about “regular, likeable people in extraordinary situations who just happen to be Amish.”

She is a prolific author so be ready to feed your Amish appetite if you’ve got one!

Amish lit certainly has a big following! Woo hoo for another living Lutheran author!
