Where are your kids going to school this fall? Are you considering homeschooling?


The 2019-2020 school year ended with most of our kids e-learning. This fall is likely to be the same - or at the very least, partially face-to-face instruction and partially at home.

Maybe you’re hesitant about sending your children to school.

 Maybe the school  health modifications overwhelm you. 

Maybe your children have special needs.

Maybe you're a seasoned homeschooling parent and this Fall will be a routine  "back to HOMEschool" for you  

Whatever the reason, deciding to take charge of your child’s education is an overwhelming decision that involves great sacrifice and can be quite expensive as well.

My regular readers know I homeschool my children for many years from toddlerhood to high school.  I'm here today because  I'm happy  to share a resource with you that I wish I had way back almost 20 years ago when I began my homeschool journey - -  An "e-bundle" of resources  suitable for  homeschoolers  of all ages, subjects, needs. Veteran and new homeschoolers as well.

It’s called the Ultimate Homeschooling Bundle. It includes  resources  for homeschooling kids from preschool through high school. It includes art appreciation, reading, phonics, international studies, science, nature, language arts, and more! It even includes resources to support the homeschool parent with planners and a how  - to for  tech tool usage in your homeschool.

So here are the details: 

When you buy the Ultimate Homeschooling Bundle, you’ll get access to a carefully curated collection of

8 eCourses & videos
13 eBooks
22 workbooks & printable packs
4 curricula
3 membership sites & summits

The bundle even includes a book authored by <<ahem >> yours truly on one of my passions, the teaching of children with dyslexia . I'm incredibly honored that my book is  included! 

Who are we - the creators behind these resources?

We are 50+ parents and child-care professionals who’ve spent years homeschooling our own kids.  We’ve had their doubts too, but  we’ve learned how to keep  ourselves organized, how to keep plugging away when it’s hard, and how to keep the big picture in mind.  

We’d love to share their experiences with you.

And best of all, you can get the entire package for just $29.50.

Are you ready to learn about homeschooling?

Are you ready for easier homeschooling?

Sponsored Review: CTC Math Program for Kindergarten Through Calculus!

CTC Math

Yes, educational sites which offer much, are prevalent.
Perhaps many do as they promise.
But, if you are looking for an affordable, consistent, no frills,
comprehensive approach to math for any level...
I mean any level, kindergarten through Calculus,
then seriously, look no further.

CTC Math is just what will benefit your kids as an introduction to
or a reinforcement of any math topic.
And I found it offered strong review to me, as a homeschooling mom, 
especially as I struggle with grasping the  more
 difficult mathematical concepts within algebra
and how to present them in a fundamental, yet simple manner! 
Yes, I was provided the benefit of a membership to the site
and compensation from CTC  in order to 
use it with my kids and review it.
I found that 
CTC Math truly and sincerely became 
a strong asset in our homeschool.

The targeted student audience
 for usage of CTC Math 
is quite broad and comprehensive.:
Kindgergarten through grade 6
students studying these higher level math disciplines:
Algebra I
Pre Calculus
Algebra II

There's something for everyone at every level there!

Here's how you can get started:

How we used CTCMath in our homeschool:

My kids are in grades 5 and 8 and so those levels have been used widely here!
I'll be sharing some of the math concepts and tutorials around the topics.

The course/grade level offerings are on the left (Kdgn through Trig)
The stream for grade 5 is in the center:
number, patterns and algebra
space and geometry
stats and probability.
Each topic within is on the right.:
Number I
Number II
Patterns and Algebra
Problem Solving

The same teacher, Pat, conducts all the tutorials.
He is your child's personal tutor and has a soft, yet
authoritative manner.

As far as the 8th grade course, we are studying
 Algebra 1 and the CTC program was a great asset in our
pursuit of mastering the basics as well as the more complicated topics.

If you are interested in any of the higher level math disciplines, you need only click 
on the left and then choose the "stream."
For example, once in Algebra, simply click let's say,
"Part 2"
if that is the level you presume to be
for a presentation of these topics:
Algebra Introduction
Algebraic Fractions
Algebraic Equations
Simultaneous Equations

Then click a topic for a video tutorial comprising
numerous examples.
Let's say you'd like a review of
"Equations Involving Fractions,"
here is a shot of one of these tutorials:

A few  shots of CTC to give you an idea of lesson examples:

and share this  wonderful resource!

Friends, as always,  
thank you for stopping over and 
spending some of your precious time here at my home on the web!
