So..........some things work......... some things don't. That's homeschool for ya! Especially when you are trying to find your own resources. You MAY or may have not noticed that some links have been changed. These include the elementary grades language arts, and the middle and high school history/geography/social studies. I think you will find the elementary language arts to be a lot less material to cover, I REALLY enjoyed the previous power points...but it just ended up being SO much information on a daily basis, it was just too much for us to cover...so, we simplified. Oh! you will also find a change in links for the elementary online math practice as well, we were too bored with the previous link....(sorry!) As far as the middle and high school history/geography/social studies....ok, it IS a paid site....BUT, you can watch partial bits and pieces of the videos...but more than anything you can use their lesson plan as an outline of topics to study, and you will just have to do a little bit more research to find videos,links, etc. to help you study these topics. I just feel that this is more structured than the previous link. Hope this helps, and is not super confusing...so sorry...but THANK YOU again for joining us along our journey of learning!!
Today's the day!! Not only is it our local school district's first day back to school, it's OUR first day back as well!! This is the day that I have spent the last 3 months on this site preparing for. I am crossing my fingers that all the time, hard work, and preparation helps this day go off without a hitch. I want to THANK everyone who has stuck with us through all the changes and re-arranges......I KNOW it's been a lot at times, and confusing. BUT here we are! and I am so pleased at the way the site has turned out. I feel like I have finally compiled our FAVORITE sites and now they are easy to find and use on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy them too, and your school year goes smoothly, as always if you have ANY questions or suggestions etc. please don't hesitate to connect with us on the QUESTIONS page. Changing gears, looking at the clock, I just have to say, I am SO thankful that as homeschoolers, these cute little people get the rest they need, if they were in school, oh goodness, we would have been up almost 2 hours ago....and they would have had to stand out in the rain today at the bus stop.....again, not saying ANYTHING negative about public schoolers, I still work for the public school to this day, but in my happy homeschool mommy mind...I'm happy that as the bus rolls on by, my littles are still snug as a bug in a rug in their beds, getting the rest they need, no pressure, no alarm clocks, the day will begin at their own pace....I mean, when they get into their teens and adulthood....they will have PLENTY of time to wake up to alarms, get ready for work or classes, rush out the door......so, as of now, my homeschool mom heart is happy, and I am excited to see how our first day goes!! So my hat is off to you homeschoolers!! I hope, if today is YOUR first day back too that it is WONDERFUL!! All in all , whenever you "start", I pray blessings over you and your family that the 2016-2017 year is the BEST year yet!! Happy learning!!
