    Using Legos as a teaching medium

    Using Legos as a teaching medium

    Do you have Lego fans in your house? Have you ever considered using them as teaching mediums? If not, then this episode is for you. If you already use Legos as teaching mediums, that is okay, stick around because you may find some new ideas that you have never thought about. My kids are huge Lego fans in part because my husband loves them so much. We use them for more than just building. I can't wait to hear your ideas on how you use Legos as teaching mediums in your home. Thank you for tuning in!

    Embracing homeschool stigmas

    Embracing homeschool stigmas

    As a homeschool family, we all know that there are stigmas that come about during our time as homeschoolers. If you are thinking about homeschooling, I hope that this podcast episode gives you strength and courage to take the step out and to make that decision to homeschool your children. If you are already a homeschooler, you know the stigmas that are surrounding us as homeschool families but you too need to embrace those stigmas. There is nothing more satisfying than to watch your child grow and learn at the same time.

    Homeschooling during the summer months

    Homeschooling during the summer months

    On today's episode, I am talking all about homeschooling during the summer months? Some families need a break and I can completely understand that. But, are you a family that homeschools during the summer months? If so, what are some of the pros and cons that you have seen in your own family? We homeschool during the summer months but we for sure don't do any textbooks or workbook work and we try to get out and enjoy nature as much as possible. Come on over to my Facebook group linked below to join in on the discussion. Also, if you are interested in the dinosaur unit study that I mentioned in today's episode, you have until May 4th at 11:59 EST to use the coupon code THANKYOU22 and save 25% on all resources!

    Traveling as a homeschool family

    Traveling as a homeschool family

    Have you considered becoming a roadschool family or a homeschool family that travels every once in awhile? Me and my husband considered doing this but we never did. That doesn't mean that we aren't still open to the option of doing this later on down the road. But, if you are a traveling homeschool family, you may want to tune into this episode to grab some ideas on how to keep your homeschool supplies organized while you are traveling. Even if you aren't considering doing this, it may be a great life lesson that you may eventually use. Or, maybe you know of a homeschool family that may be interested in doing this. You can pass along this episode to them. Come on over to my Facebook page and join the discussion about traveling as a homeschool family!
