Does your homeschooler need help in getting the main idea when it comes to reading comprehension?

Educational Insights Reading Comprehension helps your child focus “one specific skill at a time.”  Each set includes 50 cards, (10 cards for each reading level) grades 2-6. It is also self-directing and self-correcting which is also awesome!

What do you  use to teach your child teaching the main idea in reading comprehension?

Are you looking for some sort of mini Easter curriculum for your homeschool?  I came across what looks like a good one called All Things New by Monica Bullock!, {Kindle Edition}.

The two week curriculum takes children through the Biblical aspects of Easter with a focus on the promises of God.

Children will learn about tragic events as well as miracles that took place before and after Christ’s death and resurrection.

It actually looks fantastic!  I am thinking of getting this for our homeschool.  The price is great too!

I just want to first off say thank you to all of my followers.  You have made the site fun to work with.  As a homeschooling mom, I created this site as a place to bookmark all the ideas I would like for my homeschool and I thought I would share them with all of you.

Through the months I noticed that the biggest page views were on arts and crafts.  After all, homeschoolers love arts and crafts, right?  It’s nice to see deals on curriculum, etc. but it’s also fun to really get creative in the wonderful world of crafts.

With all of that said, I have decided to make some changes.  They are big changes, but I think for the better.  If you are interested in curriculum, ideas, tips, etc., a great place to go is www.modernhomeschoolfamily.com.  I am a contributor over there and it is awesome!  The Homeschool Cabinet will be changing it’s look in the days ahead and changing its name and domain to: Arts and Crafts Today!  It will contain resources such as:

  • Arts and crafts books
  • Arts and Crafts 101
  • Arts and Crafts for Kids
  • Arts and Crafts News
  • How You and Your Kids can Make Money with Crafts

and more!

It will be more of an online magazine type site full of resources and ideas in the arts and crafts world.  The new site will launch soon.  The Homeschool Cabinet will finish out it’s duration until summer.  I hope you come along for the ride!
