Online Art Lessons with Cross-Curricular Connections {ArtAchieve Level II Review)

I, personally, enjoy art much like my daughter. Even my boys have been enjoying it more. It’s surely not because I come up with a bunch of great ideas, though! Last summer we had the opportunity to share our review of online art lessons from ArtAchieve. We really enjoyed it and were looking forward to […]

A Fun Puzzle App with Bible Verses {Planet 316 Review}

We love puzzles around here. I don’t always love finding all the missing puzzle pieces, though. So, being able to do puzzles on an app is a great way to enjoy the challenge of a puzzle while also winding down. Daily Bible Jigsaw from Planet 316 offers great puzzles daily that include a Bible verse. […]

Apologia Readers in Residence Review

As someone who particularly loves language arts, I know reading is so much more than just written words on a page. It’s important to truly understand what you’re reading and learn from it. That’s what Readers in Residence Volume 1 (Sleuth) from Apologia Educational Ministries is all about! I was excited for the opportunity to […]

Learning Conversational Skills with Color My Conversation {Northern Speech Services Review}

Being a homeschool mom with special needs children I often try to weave therapy into our homeschool. I stay aware of their sensory needs and try to work on other areas like fine and gross motor skills and speech. I am definitely not a Speech-Language Pathologist, though, so I feel like although what I’m doing […]

Creating a Masterpiece Review

Do you have children that love art? Do you have children that aren’t so fond of art? Is your family looking for something “more” in your homeschool art? I have a child that loves art, one that doesn’t like it at all, and one that’s indifferent (but still young). They all have completely different tastes […]

Learning Ohio History and Facts the Fun Way! {By the Way Book Series Review}

Although I was born and raised in Ohio I always find myself learning something new. That was most definitely the case as I read Ohio ~ Here We Come! from By the Way Book Series with the kids as well. Truth be told, I’ve generally not been all that excited about teaching History as it […]

Times Table the Fun Way {Times Alive Review}

My kids are very different learners, but if there is anything they agreed on last year it was that they don’t like multiplication. Needless to say, when I was presented with the opportunity to share a Times Alive review, I was definitely excited! Times Alive offers online lessons with animated songs and stories to learn […]

Our Homeschool Curriculum Picks for 2017

Probably the question I get asked most often is “What homeschool curriculum do you use?” I have to admit, I find it amusing because I think I get asked this question from people who don’t homeschool just as often than those who do. Regardless who is asking, it’s a question that stops me in my […]

Teaching French with Middlebury Interactive Languages {Review}

I have been teaching French to my kids on and off over the past few years. Because I studied French for so long, I thought it was only natural that I’d be teaching French to our kids! One of my favorite resources for teaching French is Middlebury Interactive Languages. Our daughter (age 8) has used […]
