Year in Review 2021-2022

At the end of the year, I like to give an evaluation on how our curriculum worked out for us. As a reminder, Ari was in third grade and Cas was in preschool. First of all, we loved our cores. Exploring Countries and Cultures was a lot of fun. We enjoyed learning about our world... Continue Reading →

Farmland Math Review

Timberdoodle's Farmland Math is a simple and intuitive preschool math program that both of my kids have enjoyed.

Back to School 2021!

“Grown-up” books for May After my scholarly reading...and with everything going on...I went for some lighter...more escapist reading this month. The first one was intentional...the second I stumbled upon... and haven't exactly finished. The first is the Magician's Nephew. I haven't read Narnia in a while and it's very comforting to me. If it's your first time through... Continue Reading →

All About Reading Review

Ari finished All About Reading level 2 this week! We started with All About Reading level Pre back when Ari was 2.5. We took it very slow and she loved it. We tried a different learning to read curriculum when she was 4 and while it was fine...about halfway through she begged to go back... Continue Reading →

Mathematical Reasoning Review

Ari finished her math book for the year so it's a good time for another review! We use Mathematical Reasoning from the Critical Thinking Co as our core math curriculum (again this is not a sponsored post, just me sharing what I think of this curriculum). I was introduced to this curriculum by the Timberdoodle... Continue Reading →
