Home Educating During the Coronavirus
We are living in such an unusual time. A scary time for many. A word that most had never even heard of (unless they spent time reading the back of a Lysol can) has been a game changer in lives all over the entire world. Coronavirus. Who knew one word can put so much fear and make so many changes to what we know of as “everyday life”. It seems as every day, there are new protocols and new restrictions. One thing that has seemed to remain is the fact that many parents are now learning how to homeschool their children. Sure, teachers may be sending online support but parents are still having to find ways to make home educating work (and entertain) outside what the public schools offer.

Many times a child while excelling in one area of studies may struggle with another.

Since I have children that are close to her kids’ ages, as well as our commonality of homeschooling and managing a household, I instantly binge listened to the all of her podcasts.
Traveling long-term around the world with a family is a dream that many people long to realize, but it’s also the one that often seems impossible. However, with some organization, saving, and creativity, all is possible. Travelling can give you a lot of freedom, independence, adventure and education in locations ranging from very minimal ones to those of utter luxury. Continue reading

Total Language Plus is a homeschool curriculum, featuring literature-based unit lessons designed for Grades 3-12. Total Language Plus combine spelling, grammar, literature, and vocabulary into just one single curriculum. Total Language Plus is a program that is Christian-based in nature, but not all of the books in the program have a Christian theme. The fascinating aspect of this program is that whatever book my child is reading, the entire unit study is based on that novel, including artwork, projects, writing lessons and activities.
