Scrabble Tiles

We use these to help us out with spelling practice. Sometimes writing and oral narration can be frustrating - we've found that bringing these tiles into it helps keep things fun.

Laminating Machine

This one is probably my favorite of all the homeschool supplies! I use it to laminate anything that I think will be used more than once. I've made a lot of flash cards, phonics cards, and laminated a lot of things from our science curricula. The one I've linked is a newer version of the one I'm currently using.

Erasable Pens

We use these pens every day - way more than we use pencils. They are just another way we try to mix things up and keep it fun. They helped a lot with getting the boys to enjoy handwriting and drawing!

Dry Erase Board

We use this board daily to keep track of what we need to do for school (with our little magnets I made with our laminator). I also use it to hold any vocabulary words or other things we are working on memorizing. I'm pretty sure we originally got this one from Wal-Mart, but it's available from Amazon too.

Wet Erase Markers

We prefer these to dry erase markers, which always seem to leave some kind of residue behind that makes the board look dirty. The wet erase markers clean up nicely with a baby wipe, and we've got lots of those laying around!

Read Aloud Books

We like to get a lot of our read aloud books from The Good and The Beautiful Library. They have a great selection of wholesome literature. If you prefer books that are available on Amazon, I listed a few of our favorites in this post. We also use (and love) the Epic! Books for Kids app for audiobooks and read-to-me books.

Planning Tools

If you're more of a pen and paper person, I recommend learning how to bullet journal. It's a super efficient planner system, and I've found it works great to help keep me organized and on task. I use this bullet journal and love it.

If you're more of a digital planner, you should definitely give Homeschool Planet a try. You can learn more about how I use it in this post. They offer a 30 day free trial too!
