Getting our Science groove on with Netflix and ProjectMC2

One of the things my kids love about homeschooling is doing Science projects. This month Netflix sent us a few fun science experiments to try out in honor of the new show Project Mc². Project Mc² is a fresh take on the typical tween girl show you’re probably familiar with. The series has S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, […]

Our Homeschool Curriculum Choice this Year

Last year for homeschool we chose to use Seton Home Study which was an accredited Catholic curriculum. We made our decision to homeschool and bought our curriculum all in two days. We didn’t do any research into curriculum or learning styles. All I knew was that I needed something that was completely put together to […]

Sign up for ROBOTS-4-U

Do your kids get into S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math)? If you are in the Chicago area, sign them up for ROBOTS-4-U Summer Camp or DYNAMIC ART & DESIGN Summer Camps – where technology meets creativity. My boys would have a blast working with robots where my daughter would LOVE the art and design. […]

6 Shows on Netflix to help Home School your Preschooler

Sometimes you want a little something to complement what you are teaching your kids. I know with Little Man we are having issues with letter sounds, so I go to Netflix to try to find some help. I know that Monkey had some help with reading by watching Leap Frog, so we have been checking out […]

Spectrum Workbooks for Homeschool or Supplementation

Note: I received 5 workbooks in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own. I was recently given a chance to check out some Spectrum workbooks with my kids and our homeschooling. We currently have an all in one curriculum and while it’s very detailed and a LOT of work for the older kids, […]

Educating Kids in Miami

Home-schooling is becoming a very popular option for families all over the world. For all sorts of reasons, parents have taken education upon themselves and created real-world learning experiences and innovative customised curriculum for curious kids. Having access to events, museums and other educational activities in the local area are great ways to supplement any […]

Why We Homeschool Part 3- Flexibility

Yesterday morning was rough. No one could focus on anything. I fought and yelled and fought and sent kids to bed and fought some more. Eventually, once my clothes were dried (it was laundry day), I decided to take the kids for some lunch and to just get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Yesterday was […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Celery by Midnight

We actually did this project a few weeks ago, but I’ve been a little behind getting them up. This was a fun project to check out at the end, but pretty boring to do. I think my celery wasn’t fresh enough and I also didn’t have celery with leaves so we didn’t get to see […]

Why We Homeschool Part 2 The Activities

Last week I told you why we homeschool. I felt like even though I wrote almost a 900 word post I didn’t touch on everything. I was questioned on socialization of my children. I’m pretty sure my kids get as much, if not more socialization than those in public school. We are an extremely active […]

Why We Chose to Homeschool

Where do I start? Homeschooling was something I’d thought about since we found out we were pregnant with Buddy. Life kept changing and I was never “ready” to take the leap, though. Monkey joined school two years ago in Kindergarten and she just kept struggling. Her class had a few special needs kids in it […]

Soap Powered Boat: Kids in the Kitchen

Homeschool science is definitely giving me some stuff to write about for Kids in the Kitchen on Fridays! We didn’t actually do this experiment because my sink was full of dishes, but it can be done in a large bowl, your kitchen sink, your bathtub…anywhere you can hold some water. Learn below how to make […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Red Cabbage Chemistry

With homeschool, we get to try some fun science experiments and they normally center around the kitchen. Little Man’s Science is ALL experiments. I was supposed to do this lesson 3 weeks ago, but I didn’t read ahead to see I needed red cabbage and then we hadn’t been to the store in the past two […]

Use Go Math! Academy to enhance your Math Curriculum

I received compensation from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for writing this post. All opinions are my own. Now that I’m homeschooling, I sometimes need something to add to the kids’ math to help supplement what they’re learning, to let them have some computer fun, and to keep them busy while I’m working with someone else. Go Math!
