The Most Comprehensive, Teacher Friendly, All-In-One Reading Program on the Homeschool Market

I have tried A LOT of name brand reading programs for my children. One was way too intense for my child. Another felt more like a supplement than a real curriculum. There was one that bored us both so badly I had to get rid of it. There were many more that we tried and they all felt like they were missing something. Teaching your child to read can be a really enjoyable experience, but it is not without its challenges. My biggest challenge has been my dyslexic daughter, but without her I would never have found the reading program that both met and exceeded all of my expectations. Logic of English‘s Foundations and Essentials programs are now a staple … Read more

Good and the Beautiful History Curriculum

The Good and The Beautiful: History Curriculum Review

History has always served as the foundation for my homeschool. It began as purely selfish intentions as I am a self-proclaimed, unashamed history lover. History is mixed with language, writing, literature, and science in my home. From morning lessons to afternoons watching history documentaries, I created a few little history lovers of my own.

So, it would only stand to reason that we want a serious history curriculum that emphasizes faith with a side of fun. Is that possible? I had many friends and some readers ask me about The Good and the Beautiful. … Read more
