The ColorKu board game is a great game to teach your children. It can be played alone or with a friend, which makes it a perfect game to keep for a rainy day.
The ColorKu board game is similar to Suduko, but uses colors instead of numbers. The same type of logical reasoning is involved so your kids will develop their thinking skills while having fun.
SQUILT music guides have been a perfect fit for music appreciation in our homeschool.
We enjoyed the Modern Era guide during the 2017-2018 school year and we will select another guide for our next school year.
Planning language arts in your homeschool can feel like a daunting task.
Today I share some of the resources that I am using for my 10th, 8th, 6th, and 4th graders.
Who says you have to read only novels during your homeschool year?
Normally read a variety of literature, including graphic novels, and it has become clear that my soon to be 14 year old prefers graphic novels above all other types of literature.
As a result, we are going to spend the entire year reading and studying graphic novels in her English class.
When planning the topics we will study in our homeschool, I try to use ideas from our local resources.
If I can study a topic that coordinates with a local museum exhibit, then I double our learning benefits. Our homeschool studies deepen with a related field trip and the field trip is enhanced due to our prior knowledge.
It’s a win-win so let’s talk about how to make it work.
The homeschool year kicks off in September with lots of energy, organization, and motivation.
But how do we keep that same motivation and energy level throughout the entire year?
It’s a great question and there is no magic bullet, but there are lots of ideas we can implement and plan for during the year.
We love art projects and art appreciation in our homeschool.
And I have to say that after more than a decade of homeschooling, we’ve dabbled in lots of fun stuff over the years.
I popped on Facebook Live to share books, websites, and resources that have worked for the kids in this house from kindergarten through high school.
