In years past I have listened to a lot of Rush Limbaugh. I didn’t always agree with him, but I appreciate his strong opinion and how he can push me to think through the things I believe to gain a better understanding.
Latin was a subject I would have never thought to teach my children, but then again I never thought I would be homeschooling my children in the first place. Funny how life throws some amazing curve balls. Once I began thinking about homeschooling and doing research, I quickly saw how Latin takes a part in our everyday lives. We’ve done two years of Latin now, finished a program, and were ready to move onto a more advanced Latin program, this year. For this reason, I was excited to have a chance to review Latina Christiana Complete Set from Memoria Press.
When I was growing up, typing was not taught until fifth grade, but that was many years ago. Today, kids need to begin typing much earlier. When the opportunity to review The Typing Coach Online Typing Course provided by The Typing Coach came up, I was excited to try it out.
We host a bi-weekly art co-op at our house with some homeschooling friends. There are six kids ranging from two to eight years old. The older five kids do a pretty good job of following the instructions and not making a huge mess, but my rambunctious two year old is another story!
We’ve always enjoyed the Adventures in Odyssey and Clubhouse Magazine from Focus On The Family so I was excited to have a superhero book that would be Christian based without extra violence. Little did I realize, the comic’s main character and the story came from the Focus on the Family, Clubhouse Magazine cartoon of the same name.
While I have been homeschooling for 3 years now and love it, there are definitely some days that are much harder to handle than others. Unfortunately, from time-to-time we all hit a rough patch. This is where Homeschool Rescue comes into the picture.
We are book lovers around here. There is not a room in our house that does not have a book in it… literally, even the bathrooms. Adding books to our collection is a constant thing. Which is why I was excited that we were given the opportunity to review the book I’d Rather Be Your Mommy by Home School Adventure Co..
Being Charlotte Mason homeschoolers, language arts is said to be included in the dictation part of our day. However, in making our homeschool work best for myself and more importantly our kids, I have added in a bit of grammar and language arts along the way. Because I believe in having a bit of a deeper look into language arts I was excited to review Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level C.
