Sonlight Science Curriclum Square

Absolutely Awesome and Fun Science Curriculum For Kids

One of the subjects I have struggled to find the best curriculum in our homeschool is science. Teaching kids science just isn’t my strong suit. So for many years, we tried different curriculums. Hoping to find a great one that would be best for our homeschool to no avail. Until last year, in the middle of the year, the kids were struggling with their science program so much we stopped using it.  There have not been many curriculums we have stopped mid-year because it just wasn’t working out for us, but we did. Then we started Sonlight science in the Continue Reading…

Amazing Curriculum Choices Youre Sure To LOVE Sonlight Square

Amazing Curriculum Choices You’re Sure To Love

One of the things that I think many homeschool moms struggle with when using a complete curriculum, is choices. Where as most of the programs out there you get set books to use all you have to do is choose your level or grade. While this was nice during the very early years of homeschooling, most of us would rather have at least some curriculum choices. In the last 12 years of homeschooling our 6 blessings I have rearealised something very important. It is that the way 1 child learns is NOT the way the next one will learn sometimes Continue Reading…

Reducing Wiggles During Reading Time Sonlight Square

Tips For Keeping Kids Focused During Reading, You Need To Know

One of the biggest challenges we have had with kids is keeping them busy while you’re reading. We all know there is nothing more distracting while reading, but to have a kiddo wiggling all over the place, doing headstands on their chair, or talking. Over the years we have found out that it is the best way to keep kids hands busy while we are reading, so they can pay attention. While that can work most of the time, it doesn’t always work. Will My Wiggly Kids Be Able To Sit Still For Read-Aloud’s? One of my concerns for the school Continue Reading…
