Homeschooling for the Rest of UsLOVE this book!

The Well Trained MindI really like the philosophy behind Classical education even if the practical application wasn’t a good fit for us.

Curriculum {1st Grade/Preschool}

The Prairie PrimerThis unit study curriculum based on all of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books is supposedly intended for grades 3-6, but can work for older or younger students as well.  It is awesome!  We are taking our time–each “day” of curriculum takes us weeks to get through–and enjoying every minute!  At this rate we will be doing it for the next 3 years!

Math-U-Seeafter struggling through Singapore Math for several months we finally switched to Math-U-See and couldn’t be happier.  The girls LOVE doing math and actually beg to start with math each day.  The low-tech videos help me see what I am supposed to be teaching too!

Leap Frog Learning DVD SetWe try to limit screen time as much as possible, and for the most part Trouble simply tags along with whatever happen to be doing, but this DVD set has been a great resource for when I need to distract her for a few minutes so that I can do some one-on-one work with Princess. She has mastered all of her letters and phonics and is already spelling words on her own.
