Enjoying Maths With Smartick Method

Confession time: maths was never my favourite subject – especially once the alphabet got involved – and so it’s one area of homeschooling that I’m less than 100% confident about teaching. I recently heard about Smartick Method and was intrigued enough to try it out. I received a free subscription to Smartick Method in exchange …

Learning Fun With Nessy Reading & Spelling

Probably the most exciting part of our homeschooling journey has been seeing Angie learn to read. I recently heard about Nessy Reading & Spelling from Nessy Learning, and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I received a free three-month subscription to the programme in exchange for an honest review. Reading and Spelling Fun Nessy …

Easter Ideas For Kids

Easter is a month away, and I’ve already started planning our Ten Days of Easter activities for the girls.

I had to choose and order her curriculum in advance because I knew that once Rafe was born, I wouldn’t have the time, energy, or brain function to think about …

It’s Our Homeschool Anniversary!

Today marks exactly one year since we started homeschooling. I’ve been enjoying seeing the countdown photos pop up in the On This Day app on Facebook. It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been homeschooling for a whole year, but at the same time it’s also hard to believe that it’s only been a year. …

Homeschooling While Pregnant? It Is Possible!

When we started homeschooling last year, we knew we wanted another baby but we didn’t think too much about what would happen if I got pregnant again. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been using Learning the Alphabet and Reading the Alphabet with the girls. We got off …
