Recommended Movies to Watch for Homeschooling

We have been homeschooling for a couple of months now and it being our first year we all definitely need a break. I’ve decided to take a week off from our homeschool schedule to give myself and the kids a breather. They have been a bit overwhelmed with the subjects we’ve covered and I’ve been so jam-packed between being a work at home mom and homeschooling.

Reading is a very important part of our life. I’ve been reading since forever and I wanted my children to enjoy the same rapture, excitement, sadness and adventure I felt when I was reading so naturally when my youngest son was born I wanted to develop his reading skills as early as possible.

Free Virtual Museums and Field Trips

Field trips are one of the things that my children look forward to. Since we started homeschooling they won’t be able to experience that but there are ways around it.

I concentrated on those that provided an actual tour experience...
