I want my kids to learn those necessary facts of a topic like the French Revolution, but starting them out on things like the causes of the French Revolution or talking about the 3 Estates of French society may put them to sleep.  It may put me to sleep too.

Make learning palatable by deciding the order you want to present printables and for most kids its normally after you have presented something that hooks them on the topic.

Curriculum is one of those topics that I have to dig through my font size to see if a smaller one exists so then maybe my post does not look as long. It is a disease I am telling you to love collecting, using, buying, reviewing and giving advice on curriculum.

Yesterday, I shared Homeschool Curriculum The ABCs Part 1 and today I am finishing up my tips on Homeschool Curriculum ABCs Part 2. I have nuggets of experience to share on letters N to Z to help guide you in being selective about choosing homeschool curriculum.

Homeschool high school readiness?  What is that?  Many years ago I read an article that said children are going to school longer and are learning less each year.  That thought has resonated with me during the years as I have homeschooled.

So from the time my sons were young, I have used both online informal testing and formal testing to determine not only what I think they should know, but to determine their state of readiness.

I am excited about setting up my binder again.  Today I’m sharing home management binder and free important dates printables because I want to slowly set back up my binder.

Too, not all of my printables have made their home to my main page for my home management binder (this is my sister site) that I have on New Bee Homeschooler so I wanted to be sure you got all of them that I have created so far.

I am love, love, loving the fact that I have decided to spread my curriculum pages for planner printables throughout the year.  When the mood hits me and it hits often, I have to create and make my homeschool planner printables.  Sharing the new printables with you too is one of my favorite things to do because I hope you get as excited as I do.

Because my 7 Step DIY Homeschool Planner has been the product of many, many years to refine the core of it, I feel like now I can add those refining touches as it grows larger with more options.  From the beginning, I never wanted one curriculum planner with all the same pages to share with you knowing that everybody else has the same download. I love options from year to year and I will continue to add them as I plod along.

Today, I am over the top excited to share a resource that I have been working on for a while and it is 365 days of hands-on homeschool activities, one for every day of the year.

Hands-on learning is not only fun, but engages the mind, fosters family togetherness and the best part, kids learn and remember for years. So today, enjoy this huge list of activities and come back here when you need a hands-on activity to teach for your lesson.

Instead of starting on our next unit study, we have been waffling about whether or not we want to do a spring unit. We have the itch to make a switch. So today, I gathered middle school homeschool science 50 free spring activities to give Tiny a round up to choose from.

Some of the ideas are free printables, some are hands-on activities and others serve as a springboard (ha ha, I know, corny pun) to do your own spring unit study.

Curb a potential time waster like determining sub-topics by using the chapters found in a topical book on the theme you have selected. It’s quite the nifty tip because a lot of the ground work on a topic has been laid for you. It keeps the part that can be overwhelming, which is planning a unit study, to manageable.

Of course you determine if you want to cover those chapters as sub-topics or not. Mix and match those chapters turned sub-topics with other books, articles or magazines you have on hand on the subject too.
