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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
