Review: Critical Thinking Co.

The Critical Thinking Co.™ is one of our favorite publishers. We have been using their books in the HP Academy of Homeschool Shmool (yes, that is our ‘official’ name, according to the girls) and the kids and I love window shopping on their website. It was a bit difficult choosing which book to review, since we […]

Never Can Have Too Many Books Part 1

There’s been a chain posting thing going around (not sure if there’s a proper term for it); if you get tagged, you’d have to post 10 book covers of your favorite books, one a day. While I love posts like this (and I would feel terrible if no one tagged me!), I don’t think I […]

A Touch of Spice

“You’re wearing lipstick.” Breeze eyed me with suspicion. “You never wear lipstick. Unless you’re going to a meeting. And only if it’s important!” So take note. If I met up with you and I was wearing lipstick, consider yourself extra important! It’s understandable though that Breeze would be so unused to seeing me made up. […]

Review: Home School Navigator

If there are things that I am always on the look out for, it’s different ways to teach Math, and an acceptable (to her) writing curriculum for Breeze. When we were given the opportunity to review Home School Navigator I was hoping that it would finally be THE curriculum we were looking for.   Home School Navigator […]

Review: CodeWizardsHQ

The Hubby is in IT. So are my dad, my brother, my uncle, my aunt, and a couple of cousins. So you could say that programming, coding, IT and all that are in Raine’s blood. As a family, we’re all advocates of Girls Who Code. Raine has been trying to learn how to code for […]

Review: A+ Interactive Math

As a reformed Math-hater, I always am on the lookout for new ways to teach and learn Math. That’s why any time anything Math-related comes up for review, I immediately volunteer.   A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc. seemed particularly intriguing because it offered “Multi-Sensory Interactive Math Full Curriculum.” We chose the  Family Math Package for this review.  […]

Review: Creation Illustrated Unit Studies

We recently moved up to Baguio, which is also known as “The City of Pines.” I grew up here in Baguio, surrounded by all these gorgeous pine trees (when I was a kid, we’d even have fresh pine trees as Christmas trees–but now any tree cutting is strictly regulated), yet I have never really bothered […]

Review: NatureGlo’s eScience – MathArt Bundle

The Hubby and I advocate literacy and numeracy. We also are always on the lookout for ways to teach and learn Math, and for ways to relate Math to the real world.  That’s why when the MathArt Online 4-Class Bundle from NatureGlo’s eScience came up for review, I immediately begged for it.   I was intrigued […]

Review: Taming the Lecture Bug and Getting Your Kids to Think Video

When she was younger (and much less wiser!), Raine told me, out of the blue, “What if I had two moms? I’d have a fun mom…and you.” And while I found it hilarious, it was also heartbreaking. I know I’m not the silly/funny parent (guess who is), but I was a fun person. At least I […]
