I would recommend spending some time going through the above list and seeing what you think resonates with you and your children and then making a note of them as your favourite homeschool resources. For us already, there are some clear favourites we will be including as we embark on our homeschooling journey but as with all things in parenting, there will be a lot of trial and error!

If you have any other homeschool resources you would like to recommend in addition to those listed above, please do let us know what they are in a comment below. Happy homeschooling!
