Home Economics for Homeschoolers

This series of books introduces girls to basic domestic skills, with simple activities appropriate to that age level. In each book, a different fictional girl leads them through the task as she learns to complete each activity for her first time also. The books introduce cooking, baking, cleaning, sewing, organizing, and hospitality. Most of these topics hold 3-7 different lessons, and each lesson should be mastered in a week. Your daughter will first attempt to complete the activity under supervision, and then be instructed to practice it a couple more times throughout the week so that she becomes proficient. There are 30 lessons total in each book. Examples of the activities included in the first book include peeling vegetables, making salads, using the oven and rolling pin, using the vacuum, washing dishes, learning to stitch, organizing closets, and being hospitable to guests. Similar but more difficult tasks are given in the older books, such as learning about grains and yeast, cooking with meat and cheese, making soups and casseroles, using the sewing machine, cleaning a room, organizing the school room, and being the host of a party. If you are looking for a gentle way to introduce your daughters to home economics, these books do just that. - Melissa
