As my kiddo gets older, we’ve been moving away from some subjects and moving onto others. Spelling has been something we’ve decided to drop as he’s entered middle school, but I also felt like that took away an aspect of language arts in helping him learn new words. That’s when it hit me- we should look into starting some vocabulary lessons in our homeschool!Read more
As soon as our kids pick up a pencil as wee little ones, we encourage them to write. We teach them their letters, how to spell their names, and other simple words. It comes as a shock to many people that I’ve chosen to hold off on using a writing curriculum in our homeschool until my son hit middle school age. But, hear me out. I have a good reason and I’m excited to share it with you.Read more
Why is having an online homeschool science class for high schoolers so important to me? When it comes to teaching high school, I don’t know about you, but I become a pile of nerves. This stuff actually counts! These grades will be on our kids transcripts and I want to help them succeed.
When it comes to language arts and history, I’m your girl. I will read through all the classic literature, research all the history events and find the most amazing field trips to battle fields, museums, and more.
But math and science? That’s where I’m lost. Outside of observing nature, I’m not a great science teacher. I didn’t do well in chemistry and cannot begin to tell you what’s on the periodic table We can of elements. This is when I’m so thankful for amazing online resources for my kids. The amount of online math options are numerous, but what about online science classes? Here are three reasons why online homeschool science classes for high schoolers can help save your sanity!
My six year old dreads math. Even with exciting curriculum, it’s probably his least favorite subject. When we found Splash Math for Homeschoolers, his entire tune changed. Not only does he beg to play Splash Math, but I have to pry him away from the computer because he loves it so much. These online math games are sure to get your kids excited about math, too!
This school year is coming to a close and I have been perusing curriculum, thinking of how I want next year to go. This also means I’ve been busy thinking about creating a plan for our homeschool, too. I love having a relaxed homeschool, but this year my plans got a little bit too relaxed. I become too disorganized and let our homeschool vision slide. Next year, I have a plan to put my homeschool planning on Autopilot to keep our vision in check and stay on top of our daily tasks.
Writing is something that my son has always done, just because he has to, without truly enjoying it. When we homeschool, we do so with the hope that our kids will develop a love of learning. This kid didn’t love writing and I finally found the perfect writing curriculum that he actually likes! This writing curriculum for boys is the perfect fit for him.
I’ve been looking all over for an online math curriculum that we can use that will help take something off of my plate. Something that won’t take all day to accomplish, but that my kids will still be learning everything they need to know. CTCMath gave me everything I needed in an online math curriculum and the best part is that it works for the entire family.
Homeschool planning. Some of us love it, some of us hate it. Either way, it can be overwhelming to sit down and plan for your homeschool! What if I told you that you can get a homeschool planning guide to help walk you through it? Take away the overwhelm, the “what am I doing?!” feeling you may be feeling inside? You can create a homeschool plan for purpose and for peace in your homeschool!
I see you there, wondering how you can homeschool bravely. What does that even entail? You may be going through a season of struggle, not knowing exactly where to turn. Don’t you worry, sweet friend. You can do this homeschool thing. And you can absolutely do it bravely.
I’ve never had much luck when it came to using a homeschool art curriculum. Either it was way too involved for our relaxed homeschool or it left me feeling like I could just piece things together myself instead. This all stopped as soon as I found The Studio from Art History Kids.Read more
