The Best Homemaking Resource Of The Year is Here!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

My favorite resource of the year to share with you is here!

Over the years a lot of of different ebook bundle sales have been put together. I truly think the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is the very best one there is.

The wisest people are those who refuse to stop learning. They keep looking for new information, new ways to do things, and are willing to listen to advice from others who are pros at what they do.

Don’t be tempted to think homemaking isn’t important enough; that you don’t need to keep educating yourself. It’s vitally important, and not only affects what your house looks like, it affects your marriage, your children, and even how you can minister outside of your home.

I love a clean house but housekeeping does not come easy for me. I’m not a natural at it.  I really struggle getting breakfast on the table in the mornings, keeping up with the laundry, and having dinner ready by 6 PM.

Resources like the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle are always a HUGE pick me up for me. I get excited about homemaking again, the same way I get excited about homeschooling after being at a curriculum fair.

If you can relate to what I just said, then Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is just for you!

It’s a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audio recordings, online conferences, and printable packs designed to help you turn your house into a home… without all the overwhelm.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is an amazing resource, for one low price!!

I’ll share some of my favorite resources with you below!

The Healthy Breakfast ebook is amazing. I need easy, healthy, but yummy tasting recipes for breakfast. I’m really thankful for this new resource, as breakfast has been one big glob of oatmeal day after day. (No, I’m not a fan of oatmeal, I’m so thankful my children like it!). This 154 page ebook is $9.95 normally, but you get it along with 99 other resources for just $29.97!

I can’t just list one favorite resource from this collection. I love the Write Through the Bible curriculum, we have used them and enjoy it.

Large Family Homeschooling is written by Amy from Raising Arrows (one of my favorite bloggers!), and should be read by every homeschooling mom. The information in there is valuable and very well thought out.

Wordmarbles is a resource that my husband created! It is a fun way to encourage kind speech in your children.

Controlling the Spin Within is written by a new favorite resource –  Holly Dvorak. She did the free videos that hopefully you all watched on homemaking last week. I went through an 8 week live online course with her, and it was incredibly encouraging!

I really like the Build A Budget That Works Ebook. If you are attempting to create a budget, it gives planning sheets and clear instructions on how to set one up. It’s a great resource!

There are so many more categories and ebooks I haven’t even shared! Go see all of them here.

Teaching Your Young Children God’s Word

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I like finding as many creative ways as I can to get God’s word in my children’s hearts throughout the day.

The problem is that I’m not always very creative. My brain gets overloaded with trying to keep up with five different children’s school levels and what they need. So when I find resources to help build good character I’m all over them!

I’ve used some of the Write Through The Bible pages before with good results. The books for the older children are good copywork resources. So I was happy to hear they have come out with a brand new Write Through The Bible for Junior ages!

Write Through The Bible Junior Edition!

Olivia, our 5 year old was so excited when I showed her the new book. The curriculum, geared towards 4-6 year olds, is a full-year curriculum. The first lesson she worked through the letter A, with handwriting work, coloring pages, and a Bible lesson.

Write Through The Bible Junior Wordbook!

This program was designed to incorporate several subjects in one. Below are a few things your child will learn as they work through this book:

  • Improve fine motor coordination
  • Learn letter sounds
  • Learn how to form letter
  • Memorize Philippians 2:1-18
  • Learn new vocabulary words
  • Study Philippians 2:1-18 and learn what it means to have a heart of humility.

In addition, this full-year program is very affordable costing just $17 for the digital download or $27 for the softcover book (that price fluctuates based on Amazon). It has over 400 pages, so I would think through which version you want, based on how many pages there are!

It is available in three different handwriting styles.

  • Ball-and-Stick Manuscript
  • D’Nealian Manuscript
  • Cursive

Purchase Now: Receive Over $48 in Bonuses!

Write Through The Bible Junior Edition

During the launch of Write Through the Bible, Junior you can take advantage of these exciting offers! These are good for 10 days only, so don’t delay. This special ends on March 27, 11:59 PM.

Worth over $48, this is the perfect time to purchase your workbook. Be sure to fill out this form after purchasing, so you can receive your bonus offers.

Why We Love the “All About Reading” Program!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

We love using"All About Reading" in our homeschool days! We are currently teaching our third child to read, and this is the best program I've tried!

I view potty training and teaching reading in about the same light. In other words, I dread it. Thankfully though, the third time around has been so much easier with the “All About Reading” program!

With our oldest son I tried several different reading programs. I always grew up hearing stories of how I was reading the Little House books when I was 6 and I sort of expected the same out of my children. My son was going on 8 by the time he started reading really fluently. Now I can’t keep him out of books!

Our second son basically taught himself how to read. I started him on the basics and he took off by himself. There are pluses and minuses to that. We didn’t keep going with a phonics based program as long as we should have, so he doesn’t have some of the phonics rules in his head to go back and rely on.

When it was time to teach our third child to read, I was really dreading it. I was hoping that teaching a girl would be easier. Honestly, I haven’t found that gender makes a difference here. : )

My preschool age child loves to use the Pre-Reading level with All About Reading!

The curriculum that I’m using, however, has made a considerable difference. It’s helped my attitude as a teacher and made our reading lesson time go a lot smoother.

All About Reading has an extremely solid program that is so incredibly teacher friendly! I couldn’t be happier with the program and plan on using it to teach the rest of our children how to read.

As a busy homeschool mom I don’t want an elaborate $300 reading program that comes with a huge kit I have to keep together and use. I’ve also tried the highly recommended basic reading programs (like “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons”) and they just don’t work well for us. This has the perfect mixture of learning and fun activities, plus the price is affordable.

Some Reasons I Love “All About Reading”

1. It tells the teacher exactly what to say. This is huge for me. With five children there is a lot of activity going on during the day. We might be doing our reading lesson on the couch together, but the younger two girls are playing on the floor right by us, and the older two have their grammar DVD going on in the other room. I need a program that is super easy and very clearly laid out. I never struggle with knowing what I’m supposed to do or say with All About Reading. I feel confident as a teacher using this program.

2. The lessons build on each other slowly. For the most part I think the lessons don’t move too fast. In the middle of Level 1 we had to stop for a few months and just focus on readers and reviewing words, as she wasn’t ready to keep going. Once we picked it back up she was more than ready to keep going. Every child is unique, just being sensitive to the struggles and strengths of your child is important.

3. I love the flash cards and tiles that go along with the series – and who can forget the activity pages! I think the combination of all three of these things makes the program very unique. Carrianna loves it when I let her use chocolate chips to mark letters on certain activity pages. It makes the program even more fun! :)

4. The curriculum is not foolish. I’ve said this before and I’m sure I’ll say it again – finding curriculum that is not full of silly illustrations and foolish text is vitally important to our family. This curriculum can be funny, and it grabs the attention of the child (Ziggy the Puppet is wonderful!) but it doesn’t cross over into foolish nonsense.

5. Writing is not included in reading. I love this aspect of it! I’ve found that your ability to write and your ability to read does not always come at the same time. I’d rather add in my own writing program, and the amount I want my child to do separately. We use A Reason for Handwriting and love it!

6. There is no teacher prep time needed each day. When you receive the set in the mail you have to tear the flash cards apart along the perforated line and put in the box that holds the cards. Other than that you can just open the book and start the program! Some days you have to cut apart little word cards and staple them together, but I do that while my child is reading to me.

We love using All About Reading in our homeschool days! After trying several different programs this is my favorite!

7. It does not take a huge chunk of time out of our day! With soon to be six children, I don’t have an hour to devote to a reading program for one child. It takes us about 15-20 minutes to do a lesson, sometimes 30 if she is struggling with new words.

We have just a few lessons left with All About Reading Level 1 and will be moving right along to Level 2. Marie Ripple, the creator of these amazing programs has also written a spelling program to go along with the reading program (I wrote a review about it here). She suggests getting through the level 1 reading, and then starting the All About Spelling level 1 with the All About Reading level 2. So we will be doing that next week!

I appreciate that Marie Ripple does not stress grade levels. Carrianna is in first grade and will turn seven next month. I know some children have already gotten through level one by now, but she really needed to take this pace and I’m ok with where we are at! If she is anything like her older brother, she is on the verge of just taking off in reading and will spend her afternoons curled up on the couch reading. :)

All About Reading Readers

If you are looking for a new reading program I highly recommend giving this a try! This company has an unbelievable return policy – they give you a full year to return the material for your full purchase price, excluding shipping. What outstanding customer service!

Are you overwhelmed with what level to start at? Every level has a free placement test, plus they also offer downloads of each book (teacher guide, student activity book, and readers) so you can get a better idea of how the books are laid out!

*My disclaimer…because you just have to put it in! I received All About Reading Level 2 to review, but all thoughts are my own and I was not paid to write this review!*

 

How I simplify My Homeschool Day With Textbooks

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I was homeschooled K-12 and was given a fantastic Charlotte Mason education—a philosophy of education that emphasizes “living books” and no textbooks at all. During High School I actually read through some of Charlotte Mason’s books myself. Even as a 17 year old I loved her philosophies and dreamed of the day when I could homeschool my own children with these amazing ideas.

And then I had children.

How Textbooks Help Me Homeschool

 

As I started my homeschool journey I realized that being the teacher versus being the homeschooled student is much harder. I know, amazing thought. :)

After juggling businesses, a husband that went through college full time for several years, and adding new babies to our family, we have experimented with different teaching methods.
