FAQ’S

I’m not a homeschooler, will I still find resources here?

You betcha! In addition to homeschoolers a lot of teachers, parents and even librarians come here to check out some of the resources I share, often times one of the many book lists.

 

 

What type of homeschooling method do you follow?

We are an eclectic mix! I originally started out because I fell in love with seeing so many Charlotte Mason photos on Instagram and while I would love to be a full on CM homeschooler one day it just doesn’t suit our lifestyle right now. We are currently mostly interest-led with a bit of unschooling and a dash of Charlotte Mason.

UPDATE: For the 2018-2019 homeschool year we will be following the Charlotte Mason method! You can see why we decided to make the switch here and our diy schedule here.

 

 

How do you get through so many read alouds in a year?

Our secret weapon: audiobooks! I hardly read any chapter books aloud but we listen to the audio version instead, you can check out my post of all my audiobook tips here.

 

 

What curriculum do you use and what are your favorite homeschooling resources?

We keep things pretty simple in our homeschool and have never purchased a curriculum. You can check out our favorite resources for the current school year here and here.

How do you keep a record of what you have done in your school year?

Currently we are living our relaxed notebooking that we do and I keep a reverse schedule which comes in handy when doing our year end report.

 

Do you accept guest posts?

Yes! You can either submit a guest post or fill out our homeschool interview! Check out each separate page for the full details.

    Sorry for leaving this here. I’m not sure exactly where to ask this.

    Do you ever do product reviews or promote educational products you find interesting?

    I have a Bible themed strategy game that’s ideal for a wide age range and helps players learn biblical history and geography. In the game you are traveling through time attempting to be at the right place at the correct time in history so you can witness the event and score points. You can find more info in the link to my website.

    If this is something you’d be interested in reviewing please let me know. Thanks!

      Hi Andrew – thank you for your message. I took a look at the Portals and Prophets site and it looks like a game that would be well suited for our family! You can email me at: [email protected] with more details.
