Our Favorite Homeschool Products from the TOS Crew, 2015, Month by Month, Part II

Thanks to the TOS Crew, the kids and I have had the chance to review some excellent homeschool products. A few weeks ago, we shared our favorite picks from March through July, 2015. This week we’re back with our favorite picks from August through November, 2015. August, 2015 August was a light month with only two […]

U.S. History Detective: Book 1 – TOS Crew Review

Bookworm LOVES two subjects–literature and history.  The more history programs he can study, the better. The TOS Crew recently gave us a chance to choose from a number of products from The Critical Thinking Co..  When I saw that one of the offerings was U.S. History Detective, Book 1, we decided to try that one. […]

Eat Your U.S. History Homework by Ann McCallum: TOS Crew Review

One of many things I have learned while homeschooling my kids is that they love eating food that is similar to what the people ate during the historical period we are studying.  Of course, my kids love food in general, so that might be part of it.  😉 Recently, we made more food based on […]

The Brinkman Adventures: Season 3 – TOS Crew Review

As I mentioned before, our two youngest (7 and 5.5) are finally enjoying audio stories, which make car rides much smoother!  They will now happily listen quietly while we’re driving.  Woo hoo! Recently, we were offered the chance to review The Brinkman Adventures: Season 3, and I jumped on it. Last year we had also […]

Standard Deviants Accelerate: TOS Crew Review

There are some subjects that are covered in traditional school that may not be on the radar for the homeschooler.  For us, one of those classes was nutrition.  When we were asked to review Standard Deviants Accelerate (SDA), an online program that has a variety of Homeschool Courses, including nutrition, both Bookworm and I decided to […]

Maestro Classics: The Nutcracker – TOS Crew Review

Much to my delight, Cuddle Bug (5.5) and PB & J Girl (7) are finally big enough to join Bookworm (11) and enjoy audio stories.  Since we often have long car rides, listening to stories makes the time pass more quickly, and plus, they’re usually educational.  We recently spent some time listening to The Nutcracker […]

The Ultimate Homeschool Planner: TOS Crew Review

Between homeschooling, extracurricular activities, and working from home part-time, I juggle a lot, as do most moms.  The only way I can keep everything running smoothly (well, as smoothly as I can) is by having a planner to keep me organized.  I am currently using two planners–an electronic one to map out our homeschool assignments, […]

Phonetic Zoo Spelling Level B: TOS Crew Review

Since bringing Bookworm home to homeschool two years ago, we’ve struggled to find a good spelling program.  In fact, we’ve been through three different spelling programs, none of which seemed to make a difference. This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for your support! I should clarify that Bookworm is a good speller, but there’s always […]

Koru Naturals: TOS Crew Review

Even if you’re not into make up, it’s important to find products that nurture you and help you look your best.  I find having excellent self-care products helps make me feel special and cared for.  After all, I like to think if I’m busy nurturing and educating my children all day while keeping house and […]

Drawing Around the World: Europe – TOS Crew Review

Bookworm is a geography nut.  Last year, he finished in 3rd place for the local geography bee.  He simply can’t get enough geography.  We recently had the chance to try out Drawing Around the World: Europe by Brookdale House.  We chose Europe because Bookworm is still learning many of the locations of European countries. About […]
