5 Bad Mood Busters – Get Your Kid Back!

5 Bad Mood Busters – Get Your Kid Back!

Why bad mood busters? As parents, grandparents, or care givers in general, we have all been to that limit. You know the one. The limit where you are so dismayed with your littles’ behavior that you are on the brink of tears (or possibly hiding in the bathroom with chocolate letting those tears flow…shhh, I won’t tell). It can be discouraging to feel like no matter what you try, they are determined to ruin every plan for that day. Or that week. Or the last three weeks. Bad attitudes, toddler meltdowns, and sleepless nights begin to look like your reality. I’m […]


Manga Teaching Science

Manga Teaching Science

Manga teaching science…say what?! In our family, we absolutely love old-school comic book characters brought to life. We currently have two little girls who are homeschooling and they each have a passion for all things Batman, Superman, and Ninja Turtle. They are also auditory and kinesthetic learners meaning reading stories about action really grab their attention. How cool was it to find comic books meant specifically for teaching? Jaw-droppingly awesome! We’ve officially discovered the magic of Manga learning tools! What is Manga? It’s a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children. Why […]


Early Literacy Strategy

Early Literacy Strategy

Deciding on an early literacy strategy for your homeschool can make or break your homeschool day. At every corner, your littles will be on track, bored, or frustrated. As the parent, you will either feel victorious or overwhelmed. Early literacy strategy has been the biggest homeschool challenge we have faced. Through trails, we have learned that finding the right system for each student is vital! Reading and spelling often go hand in hand but have you ever wondered if they really should be taught together or as two separate subjects? I didn’t at first but then I ventured into the world of All About Learning Press and fell head over heels […]

Beyond Academics: Homeschooling Life Skills

Beyond Academics: Homeschooling Life Skills

Homeschooling life skills? Is that something we even really need to look into? Let’s all take a little flashback to that 9th grade home economics class we all loved. You know the one; baking awkwardly fallen cakes, sewing wonky fleece pants, and the odd crying of those creepy fake baby dolls. Or maybe you got the thrill of caring for an egg, or flour sack instead. The joys! *All posts on our site may contain affiliate links which help support our family.* As humorous as those memories may be, it gave us the opportunity to fail at the basics, learn […]
