Homeschooling

Welcome to Master Books! We are so glad you are here and excited tohelp you get started with your homeschool journey!

We always recommend that homeschool families, or potential homeschool families, know their state laws and graduation requirements. HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) and your state homeschool group are excellent resources for legal information.

Now that you’ve researched your state laws, let’s get set up with curriculum! The best place to start is with our placement tests!

You will find our Language Arts placement guide here: Language Arts: Where Should My Child Start?

If you are interested in our Writing Strands series for language arts, you will find its placement guide here: Writing Strands Placement Test

Here is a link to the placement test for our elementary math series, Math Lessons for a Living Education: Elementary Math Placement Test

Our placement test for pre-algebra includes two parts
Principles of Mathematics Book 1: Assessment Review Test (Book 1)
Principles of Mathematics Book 2: Assessment Review Test (Book 2)

After determining the proper placement for language arts and math, you have two ways to shop our homeschool solutions - by subject or by grade!

When you shop by subject, click on the subject and read through the selections for your child’s grade range - Elementary, Jr. High, and High School

When you shop by grade level, you have two options - The Basic 4 Bundle or Create-A-Bundle.

The Basic 4 Bundle provides student and teacher materials for the 4 core subjects - language arts, math, history, and science.

But, do you need to go up or down a level in language arts or math? Do you want a different science? In this case, you can Create-A-Bundle to customize your child’s course work and still receive 30% off retail!

Last but not least, add an elective or a morning basket to your child’s day! Don’t forget, Master Books curriculum is designed for the homeschool parent! Our courses included a suggested daily schedule, teacher helps, and answer keys! For record keeping, your may consider purchasing our new Cumulative Record.

Curriculum itself cannot be accredited, only schools are accredited. Master Books is a curriculum publisher, not a school. We offer faith-building homeschool curriculum that is academically sound, effective, and engaging.

Most 5 year olds will begin with Simply K, which teaches Bible and character, phonemic awareness, letters and sounds (the alphabet), and life skills. After completing week 23 of Simply K, your student may begin Foundations Phonics. However, you may also wait until completing Simply K to begin Foundations Phonics. We recommend Foundations Phonics for the first semester of first grade and Basic Language Skills for the second semester of first grade. Please note, in spring 2020 Basic Language Skills will be updated and renamed Language Lessons for a Living Education 1.
