UnLock Pre-Algebra
I knew that whatever program I decided to use for high school, it would be a good idea to use the same Pre-Algebra program to ensure a successful transition from middle school math to high school math. I have a set of high school math books sitting on my shelves that I had planned to use, but after trying UnLock Pre-Algebra from UnLock Math, I'm not so sure anymore!

5 Things I Wish I Would Have Done Going from Home School to Public School

Making the decision to home school over public school can be a tough choice for many families. But, for some, choosing to place your kids in public school after homeschooling can be equally challenging. If you homeschool and are considering public school, you may be asking yourself a lot of questions.

Whitslefritz, French for Kids | Review

6/12/2017
Whistlefritz is a delightful program to teach French (or Spanish) to children from ages one to seven. It stars Marie, a little mouse who whistles, and real children speaking French. It is adorable, and I'm happy to share my review of the Educator's French Collection.


As you can see, it looks cute, colorful, and fun, and it is!

Learning Latin is Easy with Prima Latina! | Review

6/06/2017
Did you know that over half of our English words come from Latin? Latin words are abundant in our English language and studying Latin can be a very effective way to learn English grammar! Memoria Press offers a wonderful introduction to a classical Christian education with a program that is designed for students in the 1st through 4th grade who are fluent readers. 

We received the Prima Latina Complete Set which covers the basic parts of speech of English grammar while introducing Latin vocabulary and grammar in a very easy and gentle way. If you have ever been intimidated by teaching Latin (raises hand!), then this program is for you!

A Plan to Deal With My Worst Days

5/26/2017

Sick kids. Sick mama. We all have bad days, but do we ever plan to have a bad day? One of my assignments during the Homeschool Rescue course that I took recently was to make a plan to deal with my worst days.

We have a list of things we do when we are under the weather, but most of our effort goes towards healing and comfort. I don't mind when the children are sick. I can love on them, take care of them, and read to them, but when I am down, it's harder.

So, I wrote down a list of things that I do when I'm not feeling well emotionally or physically, or if I'm just plain overwhelmed and burnt out. It was nice to have them down on paper and actually give myself permission to follow this plan.

In the Homestretch with All About Spelling Level 7 | Review

5/24/2017
All About SpellingAll About Learning Press has been a part of our homeschool for the past 6 years. My 12 year old, Malachi, started with Level 1 at age 6 in the 1st grade, and has completed all the books from 1 to 6, doing one level per school year. I have love teaching this program and he has loved learning with it.

We finished Level 6 this spring, but he's such a great speller now that I debated whether or not we should do All About Spelling Level 7. The last few levels have been easy for him, so I thought that All About Spelling had worked itself out of a job. But, then I took a closer look at Level 7, and I knew I wanted him to finish strong.
