Review: God Schooling by Julie Polanco

I recently speed-read through Julie Polanco’s book, God Schooling: How God Intended Children to Learn. It was both an easy and difficult book to review, and whether you like it or not, I will tell you why.   God Schooling came at a time when I was (still am!) struggling with our homeschool. We were […]

Review: Home School in the Woods

Home School in the Woods has been one of my homeschool favorites ever since I reviewed  their Middle Ages Passport Project and the Time Travelers Early 19th Century. This time, we got to review their Hands-on History Activity-Paks on Composers.     Hands-On History Activity-Paks comprise a lapbook on a specific theme, plus a couple of […]

Review: Northwest Treasures

I started this review not quite sure what to expect. My younger daughter likes dinosaurs; she has a pocket-sized dino reference book, and she has the names and details of her favorites memorized. We watched the trailer for Northwest Treasures’  Dinosaurs and the Bible course, and decided that it would make an interesting and enlightening endeavor. […]

Review: Great Waters Press – No Longer Little

So Raine is at that age. She insists that she’s a teen because she’s one-teen. And of course, with the ‘teen’ word (even if it’s pre-teen) comes the new world that we have to navigate as mother and daughter, a world filled with shifting moods, changing bodies, and evolving relationships. To be honest, I’m not sure […]

Review: The Master and His Apprentices

My academic background has largely been science and math, Art was never something I was good at, and don’t even ask me about music! However, as I grow older, I’ve discovered a desire to not only coax out any artistic skills, but to learn about art itself. I’ve also discovered a love for history, so […]

Review: MaxScholar

MaxScholar Reading Intervention Programs  is a collection of online interactive programs designed to help beginning and struggling students how to read. It uses well-researched and proven methods such as the Orton-Gillingham approach and the Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes. Now both my girls (ages 8 and 11) read way above their age and grade level. I still requested […]

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 […]
