When the Ho-Hums Set In…
Sometimes everything can get a bit repetitive in all of this homeschool bustle. Occasionally, we find that we need to toss things up a bit. Here are a few ways we try to put a spark back into school days: Complete our school work in a new room - maybe even on the floor Switch up the schedule a bit - I offer breaks once a few things are completed. Add in "adventurous exercise". When a child finishes, maybe I encourage them to run to the pasture and back with their little sister. It … [Read more...]

Latin Adjective Charts
Our Challenge A class has moved on to studying Adjectives. I wrote a post describing how I am encouraging my Foundations/Essentials kids to copy the Latin charts so they will get ahead of the curve in Challenge A, making them feel more successful. In my class and online, I shared this FREE NOUN CHART, and now wanted to share the ADJECTIVE CHART with you in case you wanted to add a little to your Latin studies. Similar to nouns, Latin adjectives have declensions, though luckily there are … [Read more...]
What I’ve Learned From the First 7 Weeks of Challenge A…
I jumped into the "Challenge Years" head-on with my oldest as the Challenge A Tutor. I have an amazing class of eleven students - all of whom are fairly extrovert. We have been growing in our discussion quality, and learning how to respect each other by not "stepping on" one another's words. We have been stretched and challenge in so many ways already, and I am excited for what is yet to come this year. My oldest (a girl) is fairly studious and determined. The adaptation to Challenge A has … [Read more...]
Getting Ready for Essentials – School Year Prep
Last year, my oldest was in her third year of Essentials, and my second child was in his first year. While my daughter loved language, my son would have rather been building forts.

So I am sharing the method we used last year, which is the same one we will use this year. It … [Read more...]
