One of our favorite things to do is listen to audio dramas. The first audio drama that we ever listened to from Heirloom Audio Productions was Under Drake’s Flag. We have been hooked on each one after that ever since. We recently have had the chance to review With Lee In Virginia, which is the newest release. These audio dramas keep you wanting more as they are action packed and full of faith!
History is one of our favorite subjects in this house. When looking at curriculum for history, I try to find ones that seem intriguing and involve hands on activities. Home School in the Woods has some really awesome projects for history. We are currently working on Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Egypt. You can spread this across 8 – 12 weeks. This particular project is for grades 3 – 8.
One of the things I like to use is an online planner for our homeschool. My main purpose of use is to keep track of time spent in hours. Our state requires 875 hours of homeschooling a year. There are things we do that I don’t even think about adding to the planner, not because I can’t I just forget to add. I also wanted an online planner to be simply to use. Well I found everything I was looking for in a planner and more with Homeschool Planet by Homeschool Buyers Co-op.
I have been searching for a daily bible study that my son could do. I have been searching for one that not only teaches the bible but also teaches how it to apply it to daily life. I am really happy to say that we have finally found what I have been searching for. We received Teen Prasso Teacher Manual and Teen Prasso Homework Manual by Prasso Ministries. Both of the books that we received were spiral bound. This is meant to be used in a group but you certainly can adjust it to work for an individual student. This is geared especially for teens and is a 12 week study.
One of the things that I have debated was whether or not to teach my daughter cursive. I know I myself print most of the time as I never liked cursive. I have decided that I do want my daughter to know how to read and write cursive. She can choose how she wants to write later on. We received the CursiveLogic Workbook by CursiveLogic for our review.
