My daughter and I are absolutely fascinated with stories from the past. We could sit and listen to our relatives tell stories forever, and have the chance to ask a lot of questions too. We recently had the chance to review Bessie’s Pillow published by Strong Learning, Inc. The author of the book is Linda Bress Silbert. This book is based on a true story. It is a story of a young immigrant’s journey.
Do you use unit studies as a way to teach? My kids absolutely love the different unit studies we have worked on. We do unit studies in both science and history a lot of the times. Depends on what we are working on. I recently had the chance to review a christian unit study that covered many different subjects. We recently received a pdf review copy for Walking with the Waodani by Home School Adventure Co. This particular unit study is meant for middle school and up.
I have been looking for a really good language arts curriculum for my daughter for a while now. I have wanted the curriculum itself to include handwriting, poetry, and of course grammar. Well I have been blessed with being able to review the curriculum I have been looking for: Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level B by Eclectic Foundations. This particular level is for grades 1 – 2.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our curriculum that it is really nice to be able to take a break and read books that will inspire even more learning. I love it when my daughter is curious and I can do interest led learning. We recently had the chance to review Florida’s Treasure Coast ~ Here We Come! by By the Way Book Series. While reading this book it really inspired my daughter to want to learn more about things as well as look things up.
