A collection of books from Candlewick Press gave our homeschooling family a chance to talk about being different through an exploration of literary rebels throughout history.
Sunflower Education’s Giant American History Timeline is awesome for relaxed homeschoolers. It’s a creative and fun-to-research walk through history that doesn’t require any textbooks and is great for all ages!
The Knowre online math program has helped our 17-year-old daughter fill in the gaps in her algebra and geometry skills before tackling college courses with a math prerequisite!
A playing-by-ear approach based on real songs and not drill-and-kill practice is a great way for unschoolers to learn music performance and music theory. Garage Band Theory is helping us do just that!
Combine chemistry, alchemy, magic and gaming, and what do you get? Quest for Arete, a cool new game our homeschooling family has been enjoying!
The DragonBox Algebra 12+ app has been a great way to introduce algebra concepts in a relaxed style in our family’s homeschool.
