Curriculum That’s Easy Peasy!

Ok. So, I’m not very versed on curriculum, but I wanted to share my experience with the Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool curriculum. We had our first child go through kindergarten last year, and this year we have a first grader, two kindergartners, and a host of toddlers and preschoolers (Lol). clarissa-watson-jAebodq7oxk-unsplash

I created my own curriculum last year with our first. I loved it. I found everything for free online or used things I had gathered during my time in graduate school and while working in childcare. I was able to flow freely into any subject matter I wanted without feeling bound by a script or someone else’s objectives. I was free to leave an area of study if it were time to move on or stay in that area until we mastered it.

Did you know? …… Homeschool Work Credit

Did you know that students can earn *credit* for:

*volunteer work hours

*internship

*paid employment

*apprenticeships

*and other types of work completed

To keep track of hours worked that you would like to count as credit towards a diploma. In order for these work hours to count they must be documented.

According to SCDE Regulations, 306 work hours = 1 credit.

UCHU-Accountability Association has provided a Student Employment Work Sheet  (click the link to go to that form) that may be used to help students keep track and receive verification of work hours by their immediate overseer/supervisor.

If you should have further questions regarding this subject feel free to contact me.

Struggling Spelling Student?

Personally, I have always been a photographic learning. My brain somehow would take a *picture* of whatever I saw and I’d remember it. Thus, I really DIDN’T need to study a lot for my classes.

As of recent I learned that I am a right brain learner.

Additionally, I’ve been introduced to the fact that knowing what type of learning your are rather right or left, makes a difference in how quickly a student can grasp information.

Needless to say that I was clueless in how to help my student who is a struggling spelling how to learn how to learn how to spell.

For me all I had to do is see it, write a couple of times and I got it!

For my speller in question, nothing I was doing was working.

I sought out help and some ideas on what to do. A dear friend sent me this article a few days ago. Right away I read it and put it to practice.

The results were positive. We only went over four spelling words in four minutes and she got it!!!

You too may find value and worth in this article.

Please post a comment if you do. 🙂

Thought Provoking Thursdays: Homeschooling from Psalms 148 (video)

Our God is a Great God!!! How Great IS OUR GOD!!!

Today on Thought Provoking Thursday this video is a great teaching tool to help in Science, Bible, Music and Apologetics.

As you and your children take the time to look at this video think upon the following Scripture verse.

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for at his command they were created,
and he established them for ever and ever—
    he issued a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b]
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.

Praise the Lord.
