For high school, most of us need the teacher answer key for at least some, if not all, subjects. Complete answer keys can be very expensive. A few years ago, our teens switched to Saxon math. (Side note: this has been an excellent switch, and I have actually apologized to my older children for not using Saxon in high school.) Although I know math, it’s
The words “creative homeschool” can conjure up images of arts, crafts, music, writing, and drama. It can also, however, refer to creatively fostering learning, to thinking outside the box and developing new approaches to the actual process of learning. Both of these aspects are vital parts of happy homeschools, so sit back, relax, and read about all kinds of homeschool creativity. We hope your family

We Christian homeschoolers can teach our kids almost anything, and we do. The one thing we have issues with, however, is sex education and that is because, as Christians, most of us are unaware of what the world out there is actually like these days.

I love art and even considered making it my career. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which child I’m talking to), I never seem to get around to teaching art as a hands-on, let’s-get-creative-and-make-a-mess activity.
