Write From … History

Write From … History thumbnail

Late last year author, Kimberly Garcia, contacted and asked if we'd be interested in reviewing any of her books in the Write From History series. Did we ever! One look told me that my boys would enjoy them and I wasn't mistaken at all. The books are wonderfully done and written with the homeschooler in [...]

Picture Smart Bible

The boys and I have been reading through various books of the Bible through the school year. It’s been an enjoyable process for us, but I like to keep the boys focused on what we are reading and be sure they understand, to some degree, what we’re learning/reading as well. A few years ago I [...]

Math U See {MUS} Review thumbnail

A few years ago my children weren’t using a math curriculum at all. That’s not to say we weren’t doing math, but that I wasn’t using a curriculum to accomplish the task. Instead everything we did was done through games, stories, and hands on applications. My children learned most of the basics and some of [...]

Sequential Spelling Review

A few years ago we decided that it was time to start introduce formal spelling lessons to our children, especially as one was struggling something fierce to spell correctly. We went with Spellwell which we enjoyed and saw some progress with, but we noticed that all of that didn’t carry over to everyday spelling with [...]
