My recommendations this week:
Have you signed up yet for this FREE mini-course, 4 simple steps to stress-free parenting? Nearly 1,000 of you have already, and it’s only available through the weekend so don’t wait! I had a lot of takeaways from the video segments.
Next up in our family’s read-alouds – this Newbery medal winner explores World War II from the Danish perspective, through the eyes of a girl who must take in and hide her Jewish best friend. (Recommended for ages 10-12.)
This US road trip atlas is so engaging — full of cool facts and ridiculous laws still on the books in some states. My kids keep going back to it again and again. It’s a fun (& cheap!) one to have on your shelves.
Featured sponsors this week:
All About Reading and All About Spelling are popular programs providing open and go lesson plans that are multi-sensory and based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.
If your children have been struggling with these subjects, take a peek to see if they might be a good fit!
Mother’s Day isn’t too far away – why not put in a request to try out Stitch Fix?!
This styling service that delivers clothes to your door to try on, keep, or send back has completely revolutionized my approach to clothes shopping (previously one of my most despised tasks!).
“We can get too easily bogged down in the academic part of homeschooling, a relatively minor part of the whole, which is to raise competent, caring, literate, happy people.” ~ Diane Flynn Keith
