Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished:
of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Generally speaking, the best method for homeschooling is to use a variety of books from different producers of curriculum.  The reason for this is that each publisher tends to have different weaknesses and strengths.  For the early grades you may wish to use one curriculum for all subjects for convenience.  For the lower grades probably the best that we are apiano coverse of is the Rod and Staff curriculum.  (Rod and Staff Publishers, Inc.

A Run Down of Some
Curriculums and Home School Helps

Where to look for used text books

To begin with, you might look for second hand text books of your choice at home school book fairs.  You may be able to get them cheap or trade what you don't need any more for what you do need.

Keep your ears open for Christian schools that are closing down or getting new text books.  There may even be a Christian school in your area that would be willing to sell you their used books that they are replacing.  Be careful though, they may want to charge  you more than the books are worth.

Check the used book section of your public library.  Ours has a used book store.  You may find text books that were donated that the library is selling.

Look in second hand stores and used book stores for the text books you need.  (Also, look for music books if you have a child that is learning to play an instrument.)

If you have friends that are home schooling that have kids older than yours, ask them if you can buy their used books from them, if they are using the type you want.  And don't forget that someone else may want to buy your books!  Keep books in good condition so they will be worth selling.  Have your kids write their answers on paper instead of in the text book.  Do not order new books every year for every child.  Keep the books they finish for your next child that will need them.

Find useful books for your home school.
