Fall Themed Books For The Whole Family – Picture Books & Read Alouds

Fall is right around the corner and it is my favorite! I love everything about fall… the leaves, the smells, the colors, the baking, the sweaters! As much as I don’t want to rush summer, I love when little pops of autumn start showing. To me, fall also means a fresh start. I know that is actually the opposite of what fall stands for, but with the beginning of a new homeschool year, fall feels like a new start to…

Analytical Grammar || Curriculum Review

Review of Analytical Grammar Analytical Grammar is our favorite program for high school English. I met the late author of the program, Robin Finley at a homeschool conference. She spent time with my oldest son and I in showing us the program and how it worked. My son was hooked on her statement of “all you need is this program and finish it in one year and then you do not need grammar for the rest of the high school…

Environmental Science True North Academy || A Review

The environment is a hot topic these days. On one side there are the groups warning that the sky is falling, and the seas are rising, and the polar bears are dying. On the other side there are the groups that argue that the environment is fine, that the climate is cyclical, and that there’s nothing to worry about. As an adult it’s difficult to sift through the rhetoric of both sides to come to a balanced understanding and find…

How To Create A Fine Arts Study: Art History and Classical Music History

Bring me to an art gallery and I am in my bliss. Visiting Paris’ Louvre was a dream, and the Met was divine. Unlike my husband, who brought our two youngest kids to lay eyes on the Mona Lisa, and dragged them back out as quickly as he could get in, I could spend days leisurely walking the halls- maybe even hiding in the bathroom to stay all night! I spent the day there, then the next day too, while…

Exploring Nature With Children || Curriculum Review

On a recent homeschool birding hike, we loaded ID guides, nature journals, and binoculars into our packs to eagerly trek through forest and field. Maybe we were noisy or it was too late in the morning, but we had yet to find a single bird! As younger children searched for muddy tracks by the creek, an older child moved to a quieter place for birdwatching. Her patience paid off. She spotted a large owl perched in the trees. Everyone took…
