If you are thinking about homeschooling your children, you may be a bit overwhelmed at all of the curriculum options. Finding a curriculum that has the right balance of parent-led and student-directed work as well as one that fits your child’s learning style can be a challenge. Study.com has a complete homeschool curriculum for grades 3-12 that is fully adaptable to your children’s’ interest and includes the option to earn college credit for a fraction of the cost of traditional educational methods.
Learning to read is one of the most exciting childhood milestones and I’ve loved watching my children get excited as reading has “clicked” for them. My 7 year old has been reading for a while not but he’s just getting to the point where he really gets it and he looks for any opportunity to read. One of the things that has really helped him get excited about reading was Reading Eggs, so I was more than excited when they offered to sponsor this post so I could share our experience.
Reading is something I’m passionate about and before I even became a mother I knew that was something I wanted to share with my kids. My oldest three children are boys though and that comes with a few challenges. Nationally, boys consistently test lower than girls on reading assessments. The learning gap widens as boys move into middle and high school. These books are a sure way to help your boys discover how truly awesome reading can be.
One of the things I’m most proud of is the fact that I’ve been the one to teach my boys to read (and it’s a milestone I look forward to with my daughter down the road). Alpha-Phonics has offered to give one lucky Busy Mommy Media reader the Alpha-Phonics Primer, Companion Workbook, and Companion Reader Set!
