First Grade Textbooks for Home Study

Updated on July 2, 2013

Used Textbooks are a Great Option for First Graders

My daughter is in the first grade this year. Her class has homework weekly which requires her to take her textbooks home. While I was talking with another parent after school, she told me that she buys her kids textbooks online so that they do not have to carry them home, and that they can never use the excuse that they left their books at school to avoid doing their homework. I thought that was a brilliant idea, and have been ordering her books from Amazon and other used textbook sites. I would have never thought that so many elementary level text books would be available to purchase. This a great opportunity for families who travel during the school year or for parents of a child who is out of school sick often. Home schooling families can also use these texts for their families.

Reading Text for First Grade - This is the first book in the series, and the first we purchased


This is the first book in the series, and the first we purchased online for my daughter. It is a hard cover bound book so it was first on our list of texts to purchase. We bought this one used from Amazon, and it came before the the next weeks homework assignment. There are five books that they will use over the school year, so I am keeping my eye out for a good price on the upcoming books in this series. We are very happy with this purchase, and my daughter loves being able to read ahead in this book. We do a lot of the reading comprehension activities that they don't do in class.


My daughter's religion book for 1st grade.

She doesn't take home the religion book for homework, but it is a nice way to reinforce what she is learning in school. My daughter specifically requested that we get a copy for home. This is another book we got at a great price used through Amazon.

      I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and while my daughter is not officially diagnosed she does show a lot of the signs. We don't have any official need for the books at home, but it is much easier on her to have them. It also gives us the flexibility to go over some of her bookwork together.

      Interesting idea, although if there is a specific reason why the child needs the book at home (as in a child with a learning disorder) the school may accommodate and allow the family a second set to keep at home. This is a fairly common accommodation for students who require it, and I think teachers will gladly accommodate a family who asks if they ahev the books available even if the child doesn't specifically "Require" them for a special reason or circumstance.

      I never thought of parents of children enrolled in school buying textbooks, but yes, that might help quite a bit!
