Q: How do you fit in art? How can you do art in 5-10 minutes? When, oh when, is a good time to do art with children of all ages and stages? (These are questions I get often.) http://www.hodgepodge.me/2014/06/how-to-do-art-5-10-minutes/

Giveaway + discount code! Learn Math Fast System has blessed us so! You may not need a ‘to the rescue’ type resource. But we did. And now we use these math books with all of our ages. Just because it is always good to use another resource to learn a concept a different way.
 
Learn Math Fast System - with giveaway + discount code!
Let me tell you about an answer to a prayer. Just when my high schooler started really struggling with Algebra, I heard about Learn Math Fast. Yay! We have been using Learn Math Fast for a back-to-basics, refresher type learning. Well, maybe it is a ‘finally learning it for real way’. Either way, it is always, always good to learn a concept in a different way. Maybe you are looking for something like this too?

Helpful Habits for Standardized Testing
Our third grader is testing this week. Last year I tested 6th and 9th together. So I thought I'd share some of the helpful things I discovered, plus the resources we use. Are you testing this year too?

~ I'm keeping up the habit of sharing a helpful homeschool habit on Fridays! After we took a homeschool spring break, we went right back to it with required standardized testing. It was a productive yet interesting week of juggling things with our multiple ages. I am sharing our week and my tips in

Helpful Homeschool Habit: Pressing On
…I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3: 13-14

Such a wonderful blessing - a mentor! Thank you +Lori Lane for encouraging.
 
Having a mentor is like having a personal guide for the journey!
Everyone needs a partner when taking a journey. Someone who has read the map or someone who has made the journey before. That’s why having a mentor is so important. We can glean wisdom and clarity through the eyes of a mentor. In today’s podcast, I’m interviewing Danielle on this very topic. I’m asking her …
