2. Three Lies Homeschooling Moms Believe by Embark on the Journey

I think we can all admit that we’ve believed one or two (or all) of the lies Tara lists here. And it’s time to stop. Because when we fall into this trap and make these lies truth, it just brings our whole spirit down, along with our home school. Instead, we need to find the joy in the journey and keep moving forward.

3. Earning Credits with a Project Based High School by Blog, She Wrote

As the mom of a creative high school student, I love the concept of awarding credits for my daughter based on in-depth projects. It’s a great way to incorporate skills, interests, and hands-on learning into a course for credit. Perfect for students who want (and need) some time away from the textbooks.

4. Writing and Rhetoric Curriculum Review by Freely Learned

I’ve never heard of this writing curriculum, but it looks like a great fit for those kids who struggle know how to write and what to write about. I love that it ties history into its reading component. Not all kids enjoy writing, so I appreciate the fact that this curriculum encourages them to verbally express what they’re learning through speaking exercises.

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.
