Homeschooling with Disney: Literature Study with Movies

Around this time of year, I’m ready to change up the homeschool routine just a little.

I’m not certain if it was some sort of content that drove me over the edge, or just the fact that my family was drawn to it like insects to a light. Whatever that last straw was, it was significant. Unhooking the digital satellite receiver from my television box, I tossed it in the top of my closet. I was determined that I was finished allowing television to rule the roost in my household.

How my Homeschool Day was Almost Ruined

We’ve all had bad homeschool days from time to time. But, we rarely talk about them. Have you ever had a day that was almost ruined?

Homeschool Mom Guilt BINGO

How to Encourage Creative Writing in Your Homeschool

Creative writing is a skill that can be a bit challenging to teach. However, it is also one that is pretty critical since writing is a major component in college. The process of learning creative writing will also instill in your child a variety of transferable skills, such as thinking outside of the box, resourcefulness, problem-solving, enhanced vocabulary, persuasive skills, communication skills, organizing ideas, and (of course) imagination. Strictly adhering to a forced curriculum can kill that spark — and we don’t want to do that! Here are some tips on how you can encourage creative writing in your homeschool in a relaxed way.

Why You Should Teach Gardening in Your Homeschool

The thought of gardening with kids can conjure up one of two thoughts; either idyllic sunny scenes of children playing in plentiful vegetable patches; or visions of your child covered head to toe in mud, clutching some kind of creepy-crawly!

More and more families are seeing the benefits of incorporating horticulture into the home education of their family.

Easter is my favorite holiday – in our house it’s even bigger than Christmas. Even before we started homeschooling, we did a ton of Easter activities leading up to Easter weekend.
