Library Books vs. Textbooks
There is no rule that says that you have to use textbooks. Often, especially in the early grades, the same material can be covered in a much more interesting way by reading aloud real books to your children. Remember, ANYTHING we use to help our children learn is “curriculum,” including books, videos, games, activities and even un-planned, real life experiences. ~ Susan Lemons
The Greenville County Library System has recently ordered new homeschool resources. We have developed this guide to assist families considering their educational options, as well as those who already homeschool their children. We hope this guide will direct you to the many materials available for you and your children.
When we adults think of children there is a simple truth that we ignore: childhood is not preparation for life; childhood is life. A child isn’t getting ready to live; a child is living. No child will miss the zest and joy of living unless these are denied by adults who have convinced themselves that childhood is a period of preparation.
