D’Aulaires Greek Myths Set: A Review from Memoria Press!

It’s another review in line with Charlotte Mason’s principles, somewhat at least. ;) It definitely applies to classical learning. This time around we received D’Aulaire’s Greek Myth Set from Memoria Press. The D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths Set is for grades 3-6 and includes a student book, a teacher book, and flashcards. We absolutely adore all of the books written by the D’Aulaires! They have gorgeous full color illustrations and do an excellent job of bringing the biographies and myths to...

Hiking Pictures!

Man, I guess we have germs. Last week Henry randomly got watery diarrhea. I thought he drank some of the soapy water from the water table they were playing in the day before. He had wanted bubbles in it so I added dish soap. I told him not to drink it, but there was a few minutes where he was alone with it and you know how toddlers (especially boys) can be. But yesterday, 7 days since Henry was sick, Ada...

Drawing Around the World (USA): A Geography Review!

The publishing company Brookdale House sent us their ebook titled Drawing Around the World: USA to review, and review it we did!     What is it exactly? Rosie (4th grade) and I have started working on learning the fifty states for her geography lessons this year. Drawing Around the World is designed to help kids memorize the states and their capitals, along with facts about each state. The program has you draw one state at a time, adding on new...

Reading Kingdom: A Review!

Over the past six weeks my five year old Ada and I have been reviewing Reading Kingdom Online from Reading Kingdom. This is a learn to read program for children ages four to ten years up, up through third grade level. It starts with a pre-test to gauge your child’s place, and then customizes the content from there. It can be used as a supplemental program, a full time learning program, at home, or in a classroom. Ada loved that Reading...

Our Homeschooling Year.

We started our first week of homeschooling on Monday the 31st of August. Shew. It has been a rough few days trying to get the kids back into a routine of actually doing something. Of course I have all kinds of wonderful expectations and fantasies of how each day will go. Days filled with cheerfulness and glorious learning! Curiosity filled kids, bright sunshine… Annnnd then there’s reality. A screaming toddler creating havoc on purpose to get attention. A whining five year...

A new week, a new review, a new something that we enjoyed–     With Lee in Virginia, the newest audio drama from Heirloom Audio Productions!

ARTistic Pursuits: A Review.

Another review! Another product we really enjoyed and are continuing to use! Rosie has been busy exploring all of these new products. It has been a lot of fun for us to get to try out new curriculums and topics we would ordinarily not be able to afford to buy. Today’s review is about an art curriculum called Artistic Pursuits. We were given Elementary 4-5, Book 1: The Elements of Art and Composition and about six weeks to review it. Other reviewers were...

In Freedom’s Cause: A Review.

In our homeschool we use a lot of Charlotte Mason’s methods. I adore Charlotte Mason! This past year has been a big challenge for us since Charlotte Mason style schooling involves so much reading together and discussing. Henry, as the adorable and terrible toddler he is, does not make reading aloud and talking very easy. In desperation I stepped back from pure Charlotte Mason style and instead let Rosie do some workbooks, which surprisingly she loved. When The School House Review...
