Homeschool Haul | Living Books

Oh my! New books are here as well as main lesson notebooks, fountain pens, hands-on kits and much more! Dive into these new materials with me! Many are from Amazon, but the Waldorf supplies are from my favorite Waldorf vendor: A Child’s Dream.

At the start of the year, and then several times throughout the year, I buy materials for our main lesson blocks (unit studies). While I have a general idea of what I want, I’m using getting inspiration from what I find at my favorite retailers. When it comes to homeschool material, Rainbow Resource is my favorite, for Waldorf material, I love A Child’s Dream and Waldorf Supplies. For books, Amazon! But not because they have the best prices, because let’s be honest, they don’t always have the best price, but because their book recommendations and availability are top notch. While I’d much prefer to support smaller book sellers, sometimes out of convenience, I’m shopping at Amazon.

Here is a list of the unit studies in which these materials have been used or the units they go with. We have our Bird Unit which I loved doing and a few of these books will be added to that unit. We also did a smaller, yet very engaging Owl Unit. I found some beautiful titles at he Inspired Muslim Mama’s Instagram account. Go check her out because her things are breathtaking. And lastly, we have a book or two being added to our Bee Unit from this haul.

We also have a horse unit coming up! I love the way our horse unit is shaping up and I can’t wait to share that with you.

In this haul, we also got Portrait main lesson books, Landscape main lesson books, the Birthday book, and a couple Horse kits we already started using which are awesome! So awesome, we bought another one! This is the first year we are officially adding Legos to our homeschool in an educational capacity and my children are thrilled with the addition.

Unit Study Haul

Choosing material for homeschool unit studies and Waldorf main lesson blocks is one of my favorite things to do in homeschool. I have a few go-to vendors for materials and Rainbow Resource is one of them. For the most part, I like their selection of books and even better, I love their assortment of hands on activities and kits. The materials and resources we bought in this haul are for a few units we plan to do. Our European Middle Ages unit spread into a Silk Road unit which immediately got derailed with a West Africa unit before circling back to a China unit which naturally turned into an ancient China unit. When we love a project, it’s not uncommon for us to buy it again. In this case, we love the geode kit and the huge geode kit which was actually less thrilling than the smaller geodes.

  1. Hi Hanna,
    I just saw your video about the Waldorf haul and you said that you wanted to get the eraser for the fountain pen. I have been looking myself for it and just found one on Amazon. We are from Germany and we called those erasers “Tintenkiller”, Tinte means ink and killer I’m sure you understand that. So, I just found them under this word and they come 2 in a pack. Maybe that helps.
    By the way, you’re doing a great job. I always wonder how you find the time doing all of this with 4 kids. I only have one and I couldn’t do it like you. That’s just amazing the time and effort you put into preparing the lessons for your kids. Thank you for sharing.
    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Marion, thank you for sharing this info with me. I appreciate you taking the time. I was so confused and disappointed in the video! What I couldn’t figure out is how it was so easy for others to find in other countries; they kept sending me Amazon links for it, but I couldn’t find them here! I’ve since ordered them from the UK via Amazon. They cost quite a bit, but I stocked up and hopefully don’t have to worry about it for a long time.
