Next week we are starting our new school year. In a couple weeks the hustle and bustle really start as my daughter starts ice skating lessons again. We also have Frontier Scouts starting up really soon as well. Those are the days were quick meals really come in handy. When I need quick meals I turn to my favorite Jennie-O products to help. My absolute two favorite Jennie-O products are Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey and Jennie-O Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey.
One of the things I have recently started teaching the kids was Health. I believe it’s important for them to learn how to make healthy choices in their life. I was really happy to review Horizons First Grade Health Set by Alpha Omega Publications with my daughter. Alpha Omega Publications is a christian based curriculum. This set is complete with everything you need to teach your child.
The Horizons First Grade Health Set came with a Teachers Guide and Student Workbook. The teachers guide is step by step and contains 50 lessons. It also lists materials, objectives, lesson overviews, released activities, and suggested books and songs. The student workbook is very colorful and contains visuals and activities.
I recently had the chance to read The Conversation by author Leigh A. Bortins, who is the founder of Classical Conversations. This book is about the homeschooling the high school years. My son has one more year before he reaches high school. In all reality I was starting to panic and wondering if I could do it. I have debated whether it would be better for him to go to a public school again who could probably help more then I can with some of his disabilities. After reading this book I have really changed my mine about even considering it.
Science is one of my kid’s favorite subjects. You through in hands on activities and my kids are in heaven. They learn so much more by doing hands on activities. I was really happy to have the chance to review Science Unit Studies for Homeschoolers by Funtastic Unit Studies. This book was created for ages 4 – 13.
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!
