Favourite Reviews of 2016 - my favourite products, books & curriculum reviews from this past year
A great blessing and privilege of being a blogger, and especially a homeschool blogger, is having the opportunity to do reviews. After counting all of my reviews from 2016 I was amazed that I had completed 22! These were books, curriculum, digital subscriptions, and games — and while some of these products weren’t a great fit …
Middlebury Interactive Languages Elementary French Review - online language learning for your homeschool
I’m so thankful that many years ago when my own parents were making education choices for their children, they decided to opt into the French immersion program of the public school system. We were fortunate to have begun our education in French, and I stayed in the program from kindergarten through my high school years. …
Getting Started with French {Review} - Getting Started with French is a great way to introduce French in the homeschool!
Foreign language learning is definitely challenging for many homeschoolers, I know it sure has been for me. And as a Canadian living in a bilingual environment, I have always wanted to be able to teach my children to speak French. But without a formal course of study, our efforts have not been very productive — …
Homeschool Art for Everyone! All skill levels, no experience necessary! {ArtAchieve Review}
It seems I have a VERY happy art student in our house lately. Now art isn’t something I’ve been confident in teaching in our homeschool over the years as I have had pretty much no exposure to fine arts, nor do I have any particular skill myself in the practical application. But have you ever …
Olim, Once Upon a Time...in Latin {Laurelwood Books Review} a sweet, gentle introduction to Latin for your youngest learners.
While I had been planning on starting Latin with my third grader this past year, it just never happened — which is why I was pleased to have the opportunity to review Olim, Once upon a Time in Latin, Reader I and Workbook I from Laurelwood Books. Olim is  a sweet, gentle way to introduce your child to Latin. It …
Math & Games - A Winning Combination {Sunya Review}
Last year, I instituted Fun Fridays in our homeschool to add variety, fun, and hands on application to our studies. It is definitely a popular feature around here! I’m always looking for more ways to add to our rotation of activities, so I was more than happy to have the opportunity to try out a …
Homeschool Copywork - a great resource for copywork, notebooking pages, colouring pages and artists study.
The timing for this review was just providential for me! My oldest has recently transitioned to writing in cursive but has finished up her handwriting workbook for the year — but she still needs a lot more practice to become proficient. Not wanting to make my own, I had checked out a couple of printable options for …
Learn the multiplication tables the fastest, easiest way!
My kids love memorization. They have memorized poetry, scripture, even boring grammar lists, happily and without complaint. But math facts? They are a huge struggle. I often wondered if this discrepancy in ability to memorize was due to the subject matter – words & ideas vs numbers. If so, I must be afflicted with the …
Going Digital with Math-U-See - A Demme Digital Packs Review
I was super excited to have the opportunity to review a Math-U-See product — I have been using Math-U-See from the beginning in our homeschool and am now into the Gamma level with my 8 year old while her little sister (5) is working in Primer. It is a solid, easy to use, hands on, mastery based …
Grapevine Studies Review - an adaptable, hands-on, Bible curriculum for all ages!
Because I view homeschooling primarily through the lens of discipleship, I place a high value on incorporating our faith and God’s word into our homeschool days. I am always keeping my eyes and ears open for great resources to use with my kids, and with Bible study this is no exception! And because I had …
