Homeschool Crew Review: A+ Interactive Math

Bookworm has reached Pre-Algebra.  I’m not a math whiz and neither is he, so we’ve struggled to find just the right program for him.  We were recently given the opportunity to review A+ Interactive Math (by A+ TutorSoft Inc.).  We chose the Family Math Package and settled into the pre-Algebra program.

Homeschool Crew Review: Apologia Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology

PB & J Girl loves science, especially hands on experiments.  When we had the opportunity to review Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology, I was a bit nervous.  We always use the elementary science from Apologia, but I had planned to wait to cover anatomy and physiology with her until she was in 6th […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Princess Cut Movie

The kids and I settled down to a movie on Easter day.  Our choice?  Princess Cut, which I had received from Watchman Pictures for review.  We enjoyed this family-friendly film, and I especially enjoyed that I didn’t have to worry about inappropriate language or scenes. About Princess Cut Princess Cut follows the story of Grace, […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Memoria Press Music Appreciation 1

About Music Appreciation 1 The Music Appreciation 1 set […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Carole P. Roman A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World Books

Cuddle Bug best learns by being read to, so we’re reading aloud her history, religion, and science.  I was delighted to add geography when we began reading aloud books by Carole P. Roman.  We chose three books in her A Child’s Introduction to Culture Around the World series, If You Were Me and Lived in. […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Zirrly Mega Pack Super Beads

My girls love to create, and they love making bead creations.  They’ve used popular beads, but that usually resulted in frustration because they would have to wait for mom to iron them.  That could take (ahem) many, many months.  (Bad mom!)  But, they had a frustration-free experience recently when they tried Super Beads.  Zirrly has […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Taming the Lecture Bug and Getting Your Kids to Think

I remember when my children were young and parents who had already raised their children to adulthood would laugh whenever I’d mention difficulties in parenting my kids.  The common phrase was, “Little kids, little problems; big kids, big problems.”  I thought that these parents must have just forgotten what it was like to have small […]

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 […]
