One of the things I really like to include in our homeschool is movies. It’s a nice break for the kids from our work but yet at the same time they learning. We recently had the chance to watch Privileged Species from FishFlix.com. Fishflix.com is an online Christian movie store that offers the best quality to families. You can find a wide variety of things such as Christian based comedies, dramas, children’s movies, documentaries, biographies, historical films, and much more.
One of the things my kids really enjoy is working on unit studies on topics they are curious about. A new to me company that has once a week unit studies is Homeschool Legacy. The one we picked out was Knights & Nobles. This particular unit study is 4 weeks long. The ages for this unit study are for grades 2 – 12.
This particular unit study takes you back into the medieval times and studies castles, kings & queens, medieval feasts, knights, and life on a manor. These unit studies are biblically centered. What is really nice is that there is really no prep for you it is all planned out for you.

If your looking for a new take on the ABC’s, I highly suggest checking out S is for Smiling Sunrise by WordsBright. This is the sweetest book for children to learn their ABC’s. What makes this book so special is that it was written by a father for his daughter. The author Vick Wadhwa wrote sing-along rhymes that was inspired by his daughter when she was two years old. The book is great for kids PreK – 3.
