Homeschool Curriculum Reviews

Hello Learning Lovers!  This past year I did a series on homeschooling methods and current educational approaches.  However, the most common question I get asked is, “What curriculum are you using?”  Now, it’s my personal belief that anyone who homeschools for a few years evolves toward the Eclectic method (“Magpie Syndrome” isn’t that much of a confidence-building term…), but it’s safe to say that I’ve used a fair number of programs out there.  (Do NOT open that closet door without protective head gear and a full-body shield!)

I’m really hoping to be included in the The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s Review Crew, evaluating and commenting (right here!) on some of the options out there for us book-junkies.  While I’m waiting to hear back on that, I’ve had another little opportunity to share an education tidbit with you.

Time4Learning has invited me to try their online curriculum for 30 days in exchange for an honest review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so come back and read about my experiences. Visit them for information about lesson plans, homeschool portfolios or writing your own curriculum review.

Stay tuned, and Keep Learning!

Classroom Corner Opens!

I warmly invite everyone to take a peek at my new Classroom Corner!  This little stop on the worldwide web promises to be much like the Tardis…bigger on the inside than the outside.

As I add new, FREE, downloadables, activities, and project sheets, each subject area will offer more choices for the educator who wants to connect with their student in an exciting way.  Whether your classroom is at the kitchen table or a public school, Classroom Corner will be sure to spark ideas and help give a boost to your academic routine!

Be sure to check out the Topics and Freebies area to find your subject of interest, and let the kids explore Just for Kids to find safe and educational websites for learning enrichment and brain games.
