Finding a writing curriculum that is a good fit for your homeschool isn’t always an easy task. For our own homeschool, writing is an area that I’ve struggled to find the right resources for my 9-year-old. We’ve tried a few different things that made me feel like I was just “winging it” and left me wondering if he was learning all that he could and should be.
It may seem that there is no need for a reading curriculum after your child learns how to read and is reading well on their own. However, there is so much more to reading than just knowing how to do it.
As parents, it can be frustrating when our kids show attitudes of ungratefulness and entitlement. We want them to express appreciation for the things they have and not complain about what they don’t have.
Your day is filled with to-dos and household tasks.
Grocery shopping, dishes, cleaning, ten more loads of laundry.
Picking up toys (where in the world did all those toys come from anyways??).
As I saw the news come through on my Instagram feed I couldn’t believe it. Was I really reading this correctly? Did this sweet momma and several family members really die in a house fire the night before? What devastating news.
I’m not sure how long this sale will last but right now Amazon has some wonderful children’s books at 50% or more off the regular price! These are really great prices for books to add to your home library or for gifts.
As a homeschooler I have learned the importance of me finding ways to enjoy our studies as much as the children do. After all, there won’t be much joy or excitement in our homeschool if the teacher is b.o.r.e.d.
Instilling a love for reading and learning. Making beautiful memories with our children. Helping them grow their faith while growing our own. These are the things important to many homeschoolers. And finding a top-notch reading and language arts curriculum to meet these objectives is extremely important.
You’ve decluttered, organized your homeschool paperwork, books and supplies and now it’s time to sustain your progress. Even if you aren’t to the point of perfect organization, that’s ok. You need a system for sustaining right from the start!
The task of organizing homeschool books and supplies can be really overwhelming. If you are just starting out you might be wondering the best place to put everything and what organizing tools you need. If you have been homeschooling for a while, you might be wondering how you’ve accumulated so much stuff and where to go with it all.
All. The. Papers. Ugh. I often wonder where all the papers come from. Between the outside classes and everything we are doing at home, we have so many different papers all the time. You too?
Papers, books, crayons, games, little morsels of paper, play doh, workbooks, puzzles, projects, folders scrap paper, binders, markers, construction paper, crayons, pencils, pens, worksheets, art projects and the list goes on.
Ah, yes. That’s my home.
