I have never done an official pre-k curriculum before…let me rephrase that…I’ve never stuck with a pre-k curriculum, because they all seemed overwhelming and a lot added to my already full plate. But now having a 4th grade, 3rd grader, kindergarten, a preschooler and a 2 year old, who just wants to destroy things during school time. I needed something that was laid out for me, or else I knew that as much as my preschooler wanted to do school like his siblings, I just wouldn’t be able to juggle it.

When I saw The Good and The Beautiful’s pre-k course, I fell in love immediately with how beautiful, colorful and fun it looked. But would that be able to keep us consistent with it and keep my preschooler engaged? Would I be able to juggle doing it, along with teaching my other kiddos?

We just finished up the book a few months ago and I have to tell you…I am VERY impressed! First my son LOVED the book! Each day, he couldn’t wait to do his lesson and he learned so much in each lesson, but was never overwhelmed. On top of learning his letters and sounds, he got introduced to money, numbers up to 10 and a review of shapes and colors. We both loved how each lesson was a little different and would go over different things and then circle back through again. It truly helped him really get grounded in his letters and sounds without him losing focus or getting bored.

And from a busy mom to five kiddos perspective, I LOVED the book as well! It was easy to teach from as each lesson was laid out with what to do, it wasn’t overwhelming or time consuming, and gave me such sweet time with my middle son that I truly cherished. It wasn’t ever a fight, but a fun time we both got to have together.

These were some of my sons favorite pages to do: the cutting and pasting pages! He went from cutting into the pictures where he would barely have anything to paste on the page, to by the end of it cutting on the lines!

These flip books are amazing! They make learning the upper and lower cases of letters and their sound so much fun for kids! My son loved doing these and would pull them out even if the lesson didn’t say that it was a day to do them, because he loved them so much!

The last thing that it comes with, but equally important, are the amazing games! My older kids would even stop what they were doing or grab these after school to sit and play them together. They especially loved the hiding the mouse behind the houses or pets behind the furniture games. I constantly was finding the “peanuts” everywhere too, as they would pull that out to “feed the elephant”. Each game is designed to help reinforce letters (upper case and lower case) and the sounds of the letter. Plus, it even has a little number slider to help them learn their numbers!

I plan in the fall starting my youngest with it next, at least with the games at first since he will have just turned 3 (and hopefully not such a trouble maker…). A random tip to help the game pieces last, especially if you have boys, is to laminate them. This is the laminator I got a while back and I have loved it and never had an issues with it (and I laminate everything now…I have five children so it’s become a must now for anything that is paper to last in our home lol).

I hope you enjoyed this review and it was a help to you! Click here to find out more about The Good and The Beautiful curriculum and see even more pictures of there pre-k or other products.

Be on the look out next week, as I will have the 3rd part to the “Sifting through curriculum” series; and I will be reviewing the new science unit, Mammals, sharing my thoughts on it and how I organize it for multiple kiddos.

I have gotten a lot of questions about how The Good and the Beautiful do their history. Questions of: what are the differences in the years cycles to how does it combine all the grades to meet each child’s level?

I love to actually see things and how they go together. So I thought I would give an up close look of all 3 years of their history with pictures so you can actually “see” it and get a good picture of how it all flows together. It is a 4 year cycle program but since we are only up through history 3, that’s all I have right now. πŸ™‚

We have been doing their history for about 2 1/2 years now and not only do I love it but my kids do! I could write a whole blog post about it but instead I’ll just give the short list of why it works so well for our family

  • I can combine all my children in a group (and since I will have 5 doing school that is amazing!)
  • We go through each period of history every year but stop and focus on different spots in history
  • It comes from a christian perspective
  • Shows the whole of history and how time frames connect (for example seeing what was going on in Israel verses at the same time Mesopotamia or Greece)
  • It is open and go with not really any prep time
  • It comes with audio stories that we all love
  • Each year is a little different with a new game and story or image book
  • There are games that go with each year! We all love playing them and they really help them understand the topics.
  • The price for everything you get is amazing and once you do year 4 you cycle back so you don’t have to buy anything new!

Now that you know why I love this history curriculum, let’s dig into it so you can see it and find out how much you will love it as well! πŸ˜‰

Let’s first start with a comparison of each years table of contents so you can see what’s covered in all these years.

Year 1
Year 2
Year 3

As you can see it’s the same time periods but different focus points. Now onto unit 2-3…

Year 1
Year 2
Year 3

And the last set…

Year 2
Year 3

Now that you see the overview of each year, let’s look at each set in particular.

Year 1

Year 1 set

When you purchase Year 1 it will come with the course book, history stories book, keys of history game and access to the student explorers (examples of those in year 3 overview) and audio dramatization.

The Big Book of History Stories
The Big Book of History (my kids love this book!)
Keys of History game

We love this game! It’s such a great way to have fun learning and help them remember people or things in history stick!

Year 2

Year 2 set

For Year 2, you receive the course book, maps and images book, explorers and settlers game, access to the student explorers and audio dramatization and a time line with stickers.

Maps and Images book
Maps and Images book
Maps and Images book
Explorers & Settlers matching game
Timeline – Love this because it does Ancient Israel, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Asia and Mesopotamia – showing all the time periods together
Timeline – 400 AD to 2000 AD – including Europe/Scandinavia, Middle East/Africa/Asia,United States and then outside of North America

Year 3

This is the year we are currently in now and all my kiddos love this year too! I will show too an up close look at the student explorers that you download and print.

Year 3 set

This year in the set you will receive: the Course Book, The Big Book of History Stories including maps and images, stickers to go on your timeline, Bill of Rights round up game and access to the student explorers and audio dramatization.

History Story Book
I love all the maps and stories in this book!

If you’re trying to find a way to teach your kids the Bill of Rights in a fun way, this Bill of Rights game is the way to do it! I love how it gives situations and they have to determine if it goes against the Bill of Rights or not. We all (mom included!) have learned so much from just this game!

Each question is a situation that they have to determine if it is for the Bill of Rights or against.

Now onto the student explorers. They are split up into different groups: 1st-3rd grade, 4th-6th grade, 7th-9th grade, and 10th-12th grade.

Example of the difference in levels (grade 1st-3rd on left and 4th-6th on right)
1st-3rd grade on left and 4th-6th grade on the right
Each of my kids have a binder that their student explorers are in, as well as, science, bible and language art assignments.

I hope this helps you be able to see the progression in their history program and get more of an up close look at how it all looks. If you have any other questions about the history, you can leave them down in the comments below. πŸ™‚

We talk a lot about kids learning styles, but have you ever thought about how important your teaching style is in your homeschooling journey? I believe this is the second most important key when you are sifting through curriculum. But how do you know what kind of teaching style you have? Let’s find out! πŸ™‚

Have you ever taken a Meyers-Brigg test? If so, keep on reading and find your personality in the list. However, if you haven’t, I’d like you to take a moment to take one before continuing to read.

This is the first in my 4 part series of how to sift through curriculum to find what is right for your family. The first topic we are going to dig into is, learning styles. These will be short post talking about: learning styles, teaching styles, writing out your purpose, and how to pick a curriculum. So let’s jump in! πŸ™‚

Have you ever asked yourself, why does my child repeat things or like to read things out loud? Or why does my child like to move around in their chair and have a hard time just sitting and doing their lesson?

I have 5 kiddos and each one does things a little differently. But I have noticed now as they are getting older, that the reason they do different things is because they learn different ways. There are three main types of learning styles: auditory, visual and kinesthietic. Until about 2nd-3rd grade you may have a hard time telling which one is your child’s main style and until then they really use all 3. What are these learning styles and how can you help your child really learn with it?

Auditory

Does your child repeat things out loud? Does he have a hard time concentrating in loud rooms? Does he like to read things out loud? Have an amazing ability to remember peoples names?

If you answered yes to these questions, you child could have an auditory learner. Here are some ideas you can help your child learn in their unique way:

  • Have them repeat instructions to you, if you tell them to do something for school (or in general) have them repeat what you said
  • Play soft music to help them focus
  • Put things to music to help them memorize (this is a huge key with my ones who are auditory learners!)
  • Have them read out loud
  • Read out loud to them and use audio books

Visual

Does your child notice small details? Do they love picture books or gravity towards chapter books that have pictures in them? Does she get distracted easily? Is oral instruction hard to them to grasp?

If you answered yes to these, you could have a visual learner. Visual learners love having things to look at and be able to see, not just hear, what you’re talking about. Some ideas to help them:

  • Demonstrate how they are suppose to do something, whether that’s a math concept to a chore
  • Use flash cards
  • Don’t have them doing schoolwork in a place with a lot going on, instead have them be in a place with not a lot to look at so they don’t get distracted
  • Choose curriculum that is visually appealing, black and white is hard for them

Kinesthetic

Does your child have a hard time sitting while you are trying to do school with them? Do they learn more by doing, then hearing you or even watching you?

You may have a kinesthetic learner. I have one of these (at least one so far ;)) and here are some tips to help him/her be able to focus and succeed in school.

  • Spell while through a ball back and forth or jumping up and do
  • Let them stand at the table and do school rather than sitting
  • Do more hands on with them, for my son to read a list of words now I put it on a small white board and each time he says the word correctly he gets to be a magician and make the word disappear by wiping it away. Something small but has helped him feel more confident and have fun learning.
  • I’ve heard of some using fidget toys too that they play with while doing school

Learning styles should never be looked on as a hinderance but instead a way to come along side your child to help them succeed in whatever they do. It’s an opportunity we have to help them learn how they learn best and find those ways to help them thrive. Two books that I found to be a huge help are by Cynthia Tobias called The Way They Learn and Every Child Can Succeed. They are great resources to help you dig more into your child’s learning style!

What learning style do you think your child has?

Some people think the key to a successful homeschool year is in the “right” curriculum. Some think it’s by finding the right schedule. And some think you’re not really meant to thrive in homeschooling but just survive it.

I believe you can not only have a successful and thriving homeschool journey, but can also have joy and fun in the process! But how do you unlock this? The key comes by implementing this one thing into those areas…

Simplicity

I believe this is the key to most all of our homeschooling problems. It starts by simplifying three different areas: your schedule, your curriculum and your expectations.

Your Schedule

Maybe you love planning out every 30 minutes of your day and you really thrive on that. Or maybe you don’t like having a planned day at all. Or if you’re like me, you fall in the middle of those two. I have tried planning out every 30 minutes and each kids schedule times to do things; and I failed epically (I mean terribly and only kept up with it for a day!) because it was too complicated. I got so stressed out if I fell behind by tending to a toddlers tantrums or a child that decided to take 2 hours doing one math lesson (please tell me I’m not the only one with that problem some days?). I have also tried the whole “go with the flow of the day” and not planned anything. Then I found nothing really ever got done because I had no plan or idea what we needed to get done. I got distracted by all the housework I needed to do and my kiddos got frustrated because they didn’t know what the end marker was for school.

I think we need to have a middle ground. To simplify and be realistic. I have found that creating a block schedule for our day has really helped us stay on track. It gives direction to truly get done what needs to happen in our day but it gives the grace of 2-3 hours for you to do it.

I also started simply writing down in a notebook all that I needed to do in our group subjects each day and individual subjects the that I need to help each kid with. All 3 of my older kiddos now have a $1 notebook from Walmart that each day has written out what they need to do. To keep them accountable and keep mom on track. I’ve used other peoples and created my own cutie lesson plans and things to do, but once again I found when I simplify that’s when the relief came and I was able to keep up with it.

Your Curriculum

There are so many amazing curriculums out there, however, so many of them (especially when you are juggling multiple kids) make homeschooling complicated and stressful. Lists of 20 books to read for history, multiple workbooks for Language Art study (a spelling book, phonics book, vocabulary book, grammar book and writing book), science that has words as the teacher I can barely pronounce and science experiments that look intimating to just read the directions for! Plus the science kit that cost more than the science book and student book put together! And this is just for one kid! Times that by five and this mom is never going to get a break and going to give up by week 2 of school.

By simplifying curriculum and focusing on the things you want to have in your homeschooling day, you will find freedom and joy in your days. Do you want to focus on reading a lot of books? Or would you rather set a small goal and then if you pass it you can add more, but if you don’t it’s all good too! Do you want to include art by painting and sketching? Or by doing coloring pages? Do you want to have everyone together for main subjects like bible, history, science and art? Then look for curriculums that help you achieve your goals and purpose you have in homeschooling. Be realistic too. If you’re not a crafty mom, don’t go to the curriculum that has a ton of projects and crafts. And if you’re an artistic mom, don’t go for the curriculum that is super structured and doesn’t have any artistic style flowing through it.

Focus on the main subjects first. In our day we focus on all our group subjects first, if I wait til the end of the day they won’t happen as I will run out of energy. So I’ve looked at what is important for our family. We start with bible, then move to history/science and then to math as a group so I can move about with each kid as needed. I have five kids and need as much as possible to be in group formed so that I’m not stretched too thin. This is going to dictate what curriculum we use and sift through a lot of the things that will or will not work for our family.

By knowing these things and what’s important to our family, I can focus on what matters and simplify those areas.

Your Expectations

This is an important one. Let go of your unrealistic expectation, sweet mom. Stop looking at instagram and thinking everyone else is doing it better than you. If you’re in the season of littles, enjoy that season and work school around it. Don’t put so much on yourself and your kids that you loose the joy of learning in the process. If you have all older kids, enjoy those moments with them. Create those memories of read alouds for your children as they listen to your voice tell a dramatic story. And memories that you can store away in your heart, for when they are older. Let go of the expectations that you have to be a perfect homeschool mom or that you’re kids have to be genius. It just adds unneeded pressure on you and your child. Slow down and enjoy this life God has blessed you with, and the child He has given you.

You know that question, “If you could tell your younger self something, what would it be?” I would say, “Simplify, Erin”. Stop trying to do a strict schedule that won’t work because it’s not you. Stop trying to do curriculums that “looks” like so much fun but is so much work and isn’t realistic in these years with raising littles and having five kids. And to stop beating myself up because I’m comparing myself with what I “think” the perfect homeschool day looks like. But finding instead what works for my family and embracing the unique homeschool journey us. Focus on what matters. Get rid of what doesn’t.

Let’s get rid of the complicated and embrace simplicity. Are you with me? πŸ™‚

Do you ever feel like school is dragging on through the winter? That you wished you didn’t have so much school work during the holidays? Longing to enjoy your summers more, even though you may be doing school year round? It maybe a bit unconventional, but I believe I stumbled on how to solve all those questions!

When we started homeschooling my plan was to do it all year round. I liked having the flexibly and the freedom to take off when we needed to without “fear” we’d get behind schedule. So our first few years of homeschooling, we started the typical school year time in September. Then about two years ago for some different reasons, we start in January. And what am amazing difference it made! We now have no interested in every turning back! Not only has it helped our school year be more successful, but we enjoy our homeschool year and the freedom it brings.

If you started your homeschool year in January here are the things you will have to look forward to. πŸ™‚

  • You’ll start in January with a fresh slate and a new year ahead of you, instead of hitting the dreaded February and feeling ready to be done with your school year or tired of subjects.
  • In most places, you’re already stuck inside so it’s a great time to buckle down and get into your new subjects. You’re then able to get into a good routine before spring hits, instead of being the other way around and tempted to skip school because it’s such a beautiful fall day or week to be outside.
  • By the time spring/summer hits, you should be through a large portion of your school. How we do it is that once the weather gets nice, we take it week by week in our school schedule. For example, on Saturday or Sunday I will look ahead to the coming week and see if it’s going to be rainy or a beautiful week; then we plan school around that. If it’s a rainy day we do school and if it’s a beautiful week we will take off and do play dates at the park and spend a lot of time outside.
  • BUT the thing I love most of all about start in January, is that by the time Thanksgiving and Christmas come we are through most of our subjects and each child only has one or two things left to finish. Which means no stressing over school through the holidays! (can I get an amen for that? ;)) We don’t have to worry about making sure we get our full school load done in the midst of the craziness of the holidays. And instead can just enjoy!

There is something so refreshing and exciting about the start to a new year. And I love that we get to start it off with new curriculum and vision for our school year, instead of going back to the old.

If you have any questions that I may have missed, feel free to leave them down below and I’ll be happy to answer them! πŸ™‚ And if you are not signed up to come to the event January 23rd, be sure to do that are we are going to be digging into so many practical tools to help you thrive in homeschooling plus you get to hang out with other homeschooling moms in the same season and look through curriculum from some amazing companies up close!

May you have a wonderful start to your new year!

What an amazing time we had at our first event in October! We had around 30 women who gathered for community and encouragement that evening. It was incredible to see so many who didn’t know each other, stay talking for quite a while afterwards and find friends to walk through this homeschooling journey with. Being reminded throughout the evening, that they aren’t in this alone.

We got the opportunity to talk about so many subjects from homeschooling with littles and how to keep your house from falling apart while homeschooling. To how to write a transcript and homeschooling through the high school years. So thankful for all the people who came and hearing so many stories!

Not the best quality of a picture and missing a few women, but thankful to have this picture and reminder of a wonderful evening!

Counting down the days til our next event in January! And love the community that I pray will continue to grow through these events!
