National Symbols Unit Study #homeschool #americanhistory #atozchallenge | thissweetlifeofmine.com

I think it’s very important for our children to be familiar with our national symbols and what they mean. What is the significance of the Liberty Bell? Where did the Statue of Liberty come from? Why is the bald eagle our national bird? Why does our flag have fifty stars and stripes? Below, I’ve gathered [...]

Curiosity Quest DVD's - A Crew Review at thissweetlifeofmine.com | #homeschool #science #hsreview

I’ve been homeschooling for a long time. We work diligently to get our work done on a day to day basis. Sometimes, however, it’s nice to take a little breather and do what I call “fun” school. It’s still learning, but it’s kind of ‘sneaky’ learning. We put the books away, and pop in a [...]

I’ve never done science online before. We’ve always used text books or unit studies. So, I was intrigued by the idea of doing science with Emma via an online program. We received a six-month subscription {eScience Premium Membership} to Supercharged Science. The premise behind Supercharged Science is that it’s teachable – even if momma doesn’t know [...]
