If your looking at teaching your child how to play piano at a reasonable price check out HomeSchoolPiano.com. The lessons are for all ages, of those that would like to learn piano. The lessons range from very beginner all the way up to intermediate.
I received access to all HomeSchoolPiano – Complete Set Of Books with up to 5 students.
I was really happy when this review became available as my daughter has been doing both Kindergarten and First Grade work. I have been wondering how to teach my daughter to write. WriteShop has step-by-step lessons that teach the building blocks of the writing process – prewriting, brainstorming, writing, and revising. There is something for every age, as they have lessons from kindergarten through highschool.
One thing I have really liked lately is literature based units. Moving Beyond The Page is a complete homeschool curriculum. The nice thing is if you don’t want to get the whole curriculum you can search by Individual Units per grade. There are times I struggle to find things for literature, science, and social studies so these are perfect. The ages range from 4 – 14. I find Moving beyond the page to be challenging and engaging. It supports different learning styles.
For me it has been hard to find a good, solid history program that would keep my son intrigued. I was truly blessed with being able to review Veritas Press, which has self paced online classes. The class we choose was Self Paced History: Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation. Along with the online course I also received Middle Ages, Ren & Ref Flashcards , which are reference cards to use along with the online course.
My kids love science. We absolutely love doing experiments around here. Well what would you say if you could watch some science experiments with out having a mess to clean up? I find that just as exciting. Library and Educational Services has some Go Science DVDs that are absolutely amazing.
One of things that really stands out with these episodes are “Every time we learn something about science, we learn something about our Creator God!” It’s just something that kind of stuck after each science experiment. Each science demonstration whether it was chemical or physical had a spiritual application.
