Living Books: Math

Living Books: Math

This week I want to share with you about living books for math! Most kids enjoy these books, but they're especially great for kids who might need a story to help them focus or those who need a more in-depth explanation of a concept. These kinds of books are plentiful for younger learners, but there are also good ones out there for older kids, too!

Living Books: Science

Living Books: Science

I shared with you before about using living books to explore social studies topics in depth. To me, that has always been a very natural way to learn about history and the world; after all, history is just one big story! Science, on the other hand, has been more of a stretch for me to incorporate living books, especially as my son gets older. This is something I'm working on, though. With my son's studies, it's made a difference in how we see how scientific subjects relate to and affect many other things.

Living Books: Social Studies

Living Books: Social Studies

One of the things I love about homeschooling is the ability to choose my own scope and sequence for our studies, but unfortunately, I'm still under time restrictions. As much as I love learning about early American history, my 11-year-old son isn't going to want to eat, breathe and live it long enough to dive into all of the resources we have. Even if he did, I've still got to work around outside activities, chores and other family obligations. As a former classroom teacher--all six years spent in the fifth grade--I have (possibly literally) a ton of history books that are absolutely wonderful, but are hard to fit into daily assignments.

A few years ago I shared with you about our Morning Basket. At that time my kids were 3 and 8, so it looked a little different than it does now.

Homeschool Basics

Homeschool Basics

Just after a super crazy week that included moving and a mono diagnosis, we kicked off our school year in late August. We've been at it almost a month now, and for the first time in a while, school is actually going really smoothly! I know that there are so many different homeschooling approaches and curricula out there, so I thought this week I'd share what we're using this year for our kids. You might already be familiar with some of the things, but if you aren't, you might find some ideas!
