New American Cursive {Memoria Press Review}

Our older two children have been working on cursive for quite some time. They both have fine-motor delays and learning and practicing cursive both helps improve their fine-motor skills and offers easier strokes for writing. So we were excited for the opportunity to review the New American Cursive: Penmanship Program Workbook 1 from Memoria Press. […]

HomeSchool Office Review

Between homeschooling, homemaking, activities, blogging, etc. staying on top of things can be tough! I have been looking for a solution to keeping everything better organized and was excited for the opportunity to review HomeSchool Office from Lord Heritage. HomeSchool Office is an online, cloud based organization system for homeschooling based on the acronym “POWER.” […]

Online Math that Motivates {GPALOVEMATH Review}

Our kids are motivated by rewards. Each child is motivated by different rewards, though, and although they respond well to general rewards like stars, stickers, surprises, etc. the idea of choosing rewards that would be personal and specific to them really got me excited! GPA LEARN offers a great rewards based system to motivate children! […]

Hands on Science with the Insect Excavation Kit

I love including interesting hands-ons science activities in our homeschool curriculum, and our kids love it, too! They are definitely hands-on learners and enjoy projects they can touch and explore. Disclosure: I received a complimentary product to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family. This post contains affiliate […]

Ready to Use Activity Kits for Kids

As a busy homeschool mom, I spend a lot of time planning and preparing lessons, getting supplies ready, etc. The thought of having lessons already prepared and supplies already ready for the lessons with little to no preparation on my part sounds like a much welcomed breath of fresh air! Disclosure: I received a complimentary […]

In Freedom’s Cause Review

For our review we received the In Freedom’s Cause Single Package which includes the In Freedom’s Cause 2 CD set, In Freedom’s […]

IndoctriNation Review

Families homeschool for different reasons. We knew God was calling our family to homeschool. Even the I ignored it at first because I was afraid I couldn’t do it because our oldest son is on the Autism Spectrum. It only took two weeks until I was uncomfortable enough to pull him out of public school […]

Hands-on History with Home School in the Woods

Our kids are mostly hands-on learners. They can listen to a lesson or watch a lesson, but when I ask them a question about it I often receive blank stares. When lessons include hands-on learning, though, they are more likely to be engaged in the lesson and if asked the same questions are better able […]

Kick off the New Year with Little Passports

Kicking off the new year can be a little tricky – especially when you start the new homeschool year with the new calendar year – and particularly after a big move! That’s why I’m glad to have a resource like Little Passports to get the new year started right with learning activities our children enjoy! […]

Math Without Pencil or Paper!

For the most part, our children enjoy Math. I bet you don’t hear that often! What they don’t enjoy, though, is writing. So instead of groans about the Math problems, I get the groans about writing the Math problems. I even get groans about online Math sometimes as well because they “are bored.” So how […]

Hands-on Science – Crystal Growing Kit

Our kids are hands-on learners, and it’s particularly important for subjects that are harder for them to learn (like Science) to really give them that experience. It helps them to stay interested and involved in their learning. Disclosure: I received a complimentary product to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own. This post […]
