Winter Promise Language Arts Review

A couple of years ago we enjoyed the lovely Word Spy books. We took our time reading through them and enjoyed every minute of them. When we reached the end of both books I really didn’t want my children to forget all that they had learned, so I ended up searching out a grammar programme. [...]

Five In A Row Review

Five in a Row Review

When we first began home educating our eldest son we began with the Five In A Row Curriculum. I was smitten with the fact that it used many beloved picture books and would introduce us to some new ones we weren’t quite familiar with. We used the Five In A Row (FIAR) Curriculum for five [...]

Homeschool in the Woods Knights Lap-Pak Review

Homeschool in the Woods Knights Lap-Pak Review thumbnail

I was contacted by Homeschool In The Woods (HSITW) and offered one of their lovely new products, Lap-Paks, to try out in exchange for an honest review.

Writing With Skill Review

My eldest son, now 12, has been desperate for me to teach him to write for a while. I’m very passionate about writing because it hits pretty close to home for me. But truthfully I’ve never been huge on non-fiction writing. It’s not that I can’t do it or that I don’t like doing it, [...]

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 [...]
