Early Learning

Early learning education is best when heavy on read-alouds, make-believe, language development, and fun hands-on learning. For age appropriate ideas, you can also try Pinterest and other similar websites to find theme related materials. Additional book selections at the library can be found under Literature (K-6).

This website page has been created for homeschoolers as an easy way to locate items for subject based inquiries of interest to home educators. The first link(s) of each category will send you to the Weatherford Public Library catalog and pull up a list of items related to that particular subject area. The remaining links are website pages of free and low-cost resources online to assist in your child’s education.
