Books to Read to Your Preschooler this Fall

If you haven’t figured it out by now, fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors, the smells, and the sights.  Every year, I love coming up with activities for my children and me to do together.  Over the past week, I’ve been eagerly reading books from the library trying to find the cream […]

Homeschool Curriculum Choices for 2017-2018

The 2017-2018 school year is in full swing and we are loving our homeschool curriculum choices so far.  Over the summer, I stumbled across a blog post about the five flavors of homeschooling.  Now granted, it’s from the Simply Charlotte Mason website so it might be somewhat skewed, but after taking several other “homeschool style” quizzes, […]

The Ultimate Homeschool Planner Review

I’ve mentioned in the past that I’m not a great planner.  I really have to work at it.  So when I got a chance to review The Ultimate Homeschool Planner-Blue Cover by Apologia Educational Ministries, I decided to give it a shot.  I was hoping to find something that helped me stay better organized, wasn’t […]

Pom-Pom Clothespin Grasp

Second in the series of activities for preschoolers is the Pom-Pom Clothespin Grasp.  This activity is great for practicing fine motor and sorting skills.  The girls made our Pom-Pom Clothespin Grasp game at the homeschool co-op we attend, but it would be simple to make at home as well.

CTC Math Review

Through this last school year, I’ve introduced more and more curriculum to H.  She turned five in May and although this coming year would be her first official year in kindergarten, I’ve done quite a bit of kindergarten work with her.  She’s fairly advanced for her age and I didn’t want to hold her back by […]

La La Logic Preschool Curriculum Review

This year, our family has reviewed several homeschooling products and have enjoyed doing so.  But when we were asked to review the Preschool Curriculum from La La Logic, I was the most excited I’d been about any of the products.  From what I’d seen, La La Logic Preschool Curriculum was something that would cause my […]
