I’m very excited to announce that I was recently accepted to the Homeschool Review Crew!

Bring a part of the Review Crew gives me the opportunity to try various homeschooling products and give you my honest opinions about them. No more wasting time wondering if a product is worth looking into. I will be giving you all the details right here, from one mama to another!

My first product review to share with you is the Yearly Membership to! is a subscription-based website full of curriculum from preschool to high school. You will also find courses and resources for parents. They cover all your regular subjects, as well as many electives as well! Choose from a variety of online courses, videos, printables and even planners!

One of the first things I wanted to try with my own children was the Adventures In Writing course. It is perfect for both my 2nd grader AND my 5th grader, as they can each work at their own pace and capability.
The course takes them through the full process of creating their own story. From creating characters and a setting, to developing their own plot. It walks them through writing the beginning, middle and end of their story, and then teaches them to go back to add more detail and edit their work. The process was super easy, they even provided cute printable worksheets to go along with each lesson. I was able to teach each lesson by using the printable Lesson Plans for parents.
Both of my children were asking me each day “Can we do the story writing first?”. I think that is a good indication that they are enjoying the course!


Another area that I was really impressed with was the Just For Parents section.
If there is anything you are worried about as a parent or homeschool teacher, I bet you will find answers and inspiration here!

There are a plethora of courses and resources just for us parents, some of which include;
– Building Faithful Kids
– Joy In the Morning
– Special Needs
– Parenting Your Teenager
– How to teach Elementary Math
– Marriage Built to Last
– And there are so many MORE!

In this section you’ll find many tools to help make your homeschooling journey a little bit easier. Some of these tools include schedule builders, report card creators, a scope and sequence, and special needs help.
There is even help to streamline your household tasks, such as organization tips, monthly menus, and whole foods cooking!
You’ll receive encouragement from Bible studies, parenting articles, and homeschooling tips from veteran homeschoolers.

Just these resources alone would be more than worth the subscription cost of
I’m looking forward to diving into many of these great courses and articles.

Your membership with includes some great Freebies too!

Educational Toys to Entertain Your Toddler

Educational Toys to Entertain Your Toddler

With my own toddler running around I know first hand just how active and busy they can be!

While I’m trying to homeschool my oldest two, I often find myself having to stop to find something to entertain my toddler every few minutes. Even when we aren’t doing school work, he is still so busy! I always keep my eye out for toys that will be able to entertain and keep him busy for longer periods of time. And if they can be educational too, BIG BONUS! Would you like to see some of the toys I’ve found recently that I absolutely LOVE? You can click directly on a product below and it will take you to the site with more information. And you can also purchase the item there as well if it looks like a good fit for you and your toddler.

I just love wooden toys, and I’m also a big fan toys that work on fine motor skills. My little guy could spend half an hour taking something apart and trying to put it back together again! That’s 25 minutes longer than a lot of other toys. I don’t know about you, but I can get a lot more accomplished in half an hour versus 5 minutes! If there are any awesome toys you’ve found that can hold your toddler’s attention and are also educational, please tell me about them in the comment section below!
