Free Language Arts Curriculum

I will admit, I don’t love teaching Language Arts. While I can easily put together my own curriculum in literally any other subject, Language Arts baffles me. I have no idea why. Perhaps because I really, really hated it in school, I don’t know. At any rate, every year I have to find a Language […]

Teaching My Kids the True Meaning of Memorial Day

Memorial Day – it seems such an odd day to “celebrate.” The parties and barbecues and games are a stark contrast to the somber remembrance of lives lost. Over the years the true meaning of Memorial Day has been lost in the excitement of a 3 day weekend and the celebration of the beginning of […]

Free Science Curriculum for All Grades

Science curriculum doesn’t have to be expensive. A good portion of what we’ve used for science over the years has been free resources!

Free Piano Lessons for Kids

Note & Disclaimer: Free piano lessons online are never a substitute for private lessons with a live teacher, especially if your child plans to pursue piano playing beyond the basics.

Free Art Instruction for Kids

My kids LOVE all things art. Me? I have absolutely zero talent or desire…what.so.ever.  Well, that’s not entirely true. I can draw a tree. Seriously, that’s it, just a tree. I haven’t yet figured out why God gave me the talent to draw only one thing. Perhaps I missed my calling as a tree artist, […]

Free Homeschool Math Curriculum

Math seems to be one of the subjects that most homeschool moms dread, with science running a close second. I actually love math, though I didn’t love teaching it for the longest time. It wasn’t until I came to realize that math is not some secret code that needs to be deciphered and unlocked that […]
