What I Read with the Kids in June, 2018

I thought I’d start a new little feature–what we read each month.  Cuddle Bug loves, loves, loves to be read to, and right now, that is how she is getting a lot of her schooling.  We’re also in the car for at least an hour a day, so we try to listen to audio books […]

Homeschool Crew Review: CursiveLogic

Teaching my kids cursive is very important to me.  I know that some schools no longer teach cursive, but when I think of all of the historical documents that are written in cursive, I just can’t think of my kids not learning it.  Bookworm learned while he was still in school and now has beautiful […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Drive Thru History Adventures

I’m a history buff as are Bookworm and Cuddle Bug.  PB & J Girl (9), not so much.  In fact, getting her interested in any history has been a struggle, until we had the opportunity to review a homeschool video curriculum by Drive Thru History Adventures with Dave Stotts.   About Drive Thru History Adventures […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Wulf the Saxon by Heirloom Audio Productions

Heirloom Audio Productions has added another great title to their collection of works by G.A. Henty.  This time it is Wulf the Saxon about the Norman conquest.  We received the physical CD and enjoyed listening to it! About Wulf the Saxon This audio story is 2.5 hours long and offers a complex story of battle […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Forbrain

All of my kids have been in speech therapy at some point in their lives.  Currently, one is in speech therapy and the other is about to start up again.  I also have a child who struggles with focus, so I was excited to try out Forbrain by Sounds for Life LTD as it is […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Thinking Like an Architect

Bookworm has reached that point where he’s just not that interested in school.  (I’ve heard from many homeschool moms that this is a common occurrence among middle school boys.)  His favorite mantra is, “But really, when will I use this in real life?” So, I’m always excited when I find a curriculum that interests him […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Sex by Design

When I grew up, I never got the “sex talk.”  Instead, my mom had a series of books on the shelf about human development that I was free to read.  Of course, they were on the living room bookshelf, so I would sneak them into my room whenever she wasn’t looking and read them.  Then, […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Reading Eggs

Teaching reading has always been a challenge for me, in part because both of my girls had/have speech issues, which affected their reading.  PB & J Girl (8) has completed years of therapy and is now over her speech issues.  As soon as speech was resolved, she did beautifully learning to read.  Now, she’s nearing […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Brinkman Adventures Season 4

We’ve been spending so much time in the car lately, we’ve really enjoyed listening to audio stories to pass the time.  Lately, we’ve been listening to the Brinkman Adventures.  Brinkman Adventures Season 4 offers just as many exciting stories as the other Brinkman Adventures we’ve reviewed before including Season 2 and Season 3. About The […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Easy Peasy Cursive

My mom went to two graduation parties this year where the high school graduates could not read the cards because they were written in cursive, and, unfortunately, cursive just is not taught in many schools anymore.  I find this incredibly sad.  Think of the historical documents, old letters from relatives, etc. that these kids can’t […]
