There are many different ways that you can encourage music education in your homeschool. Just allowing your children the freedom to tinker with an instrument can lead to independent learning and a love for music that can last a lifetime.
Just as my parenting has evolved in my home, so has my homeschooling. Each year I take stock of what has worked and what hasn’t and we change accordingly. We may decide to introduce journalling, or a planner, or maybe we will decide to stop workbooks all together. One idea that we recently started to do […]
When people think of homeschooling they think of a happy mom standing in front of the kitchen table, lecture style, teaching her gaggle of children arithmetics using workbooks. Her house is spotless, her children are well coiffed, and everyone looks happy. After looking at a few pinterest boards this myth is cemented. However, this is […]

We had already learned all about Rainbows last year when learning about the letter R, so I wanted to do something different. I decided to check out both Pinterest and YouTube for some lesson inspiration and […]
I have to say that I am having so much fun teaching Kindergarten at our Homeschool Coop. It is an absolute blast. The best thing about it is that it makes me create lessons for my third child — and we all know that third children do not get the same homeschooling experience as the […]
