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 […]

Science for the Year: Apologia Chemistry and Physics

The girls share a few subjects: Science, World History, Bible & Character. This means we have the same lesson for both, with slightly different age-adjusted follow up activities. We’ve been doing this since we started homeschool, and it really does save me time. Last year for Science, we did Apologia’s Exploring Creation Swimming Creatures of the […]

Review: A Pirate’s Guide t’ th’ Grammar of Story

Both Raine and Breeze didn’t work too well with the Language Arts program of Sonlight and Bookshark, so we were looking for a better alternative. Raine found her groove with Apologia’s Writers in Residence this year (more on this in a separate post). Breeze was a little more difficult to pin down. When I got […]

Review: Let the Little Children Come

I find talking about God, the Gospel, and salvation daunting sometimes, especially when talking to children. That’s why this Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler Pack that I got for review  from Let the Little Children Come is wonderful. Each of the ten items in the pack helps engage children children’s attention and interest, and makes […]

Review: Brinkman Adventures

We have been enjoying audiobooks for some time now, and a well-narrated one can keep the girls enthralled for hours (Neil Patrick Harris’ reading of Beverly Cleary’s Henry Huggins has been the hands-down winner so far). We’ve never tried a full-production radio drama like Brinkman Adventures before, so I was excited to have the girls […]

Review: Super Teacher Worksheets

The girls love worksheets, so the Individual Membership from Super Teacher Worksheets was a welcome review. Super Teachers Worksheets is a by-membership site where you can find and download a plethora of worksheets (mostly for K to 5th grade, with some of the chapter book activities going up to 7th grade). With worksheets that cover […]

Review: Let’s Go Geography

My kids have always been fond of geography, so when Let’s Go Geography offered one year of their three-year geography curriculum for review, I wanted to try it out. What it is and who used it Let’s Go Geography is a downloadable curriculum that tackles one country every lesson. Each lesson is a PDF file […]

Review: Carole P. Roman Storybooks

We all love reading in HP Household, and the opportunity to review children’s books from Carole P. Roman was too good to pass up. Besides, some of her books coincided with our lessons. We chose two books from her If You Were Me and Lived in… series: Renaissance Italy and The American West. We also […]

Review: Progeny Press ‘The Silver Chair’ E-Guide

I have always loved reading, and I’m thrilled that the girls have picked up on that as well (to the point of uselessness sometimes, as they read and lounge amidst all the chores that have to be done—but that’s a completely different post). One thing that I never really did though was dig deeper into […]
