  1. Hello . I was wondering on which classical conversation cycle CD do you go with for the skip counting songs? Thank you


    1. It has been awhile since we’ve done CC! I believe that the skip counting songs are the same for each cycle, but you may want to double check that it is still done this way!!


  2. Thank you SO much, Kim, for these amazing resources!!! My kids have loved your math recommendations and now I’ve purchased your reading journal, prayer journal, and first Bible study so we can learn together as a family. What a wonderful idea! I also love the idea of cuddling on the couch together and reading amazing science books!! Yes!! Thank you for giving those of us who are just starting out such a wonderful guide!!

    1. Some subjects probably need to be done everyday for fluency, like math and reading. Other subjects like history and science could be spaced out during the week. You would need to look at how much needs to get done for the year and determine how much is required each week to accomplish that goal. Some people do a little bit each day, and others do longer periods once or twice a week. Whatever works best for your schedule and your family.

  3. I have looked at so many blogs, websites, and resources, and this one is by far the best I have seen. My daughter is in third grade, and I decided to start homeschooling her after the New Year. I have been searching for ideas since I will be new to homeschooling, and I’m feeling intimidated. This is an amazing, exhaustive list of resources that all look great! Thank you so very much!

  4. Hi Kim, as a former elementary school teacher turned homeschool mom, I have really appreciated your recommendations on curriculum for my youngest (I didn’t start homeschooling my other two until middle school).

    She is currently in second grade and starting level 3 of All About Spelling. I found your website late last school year, so we didn’t start the curriculum until this year. Thankfully we’ve been able to quickly and easily move through the first two levels. I was looking ahead and saw that at the fourth grade level you switch to IEW’s Phonetic Zoo. How many levels of All About Spelling do you complete before you make the switch?

    Thank you for your help. And for all the information you have provided on your website. We have also purchased several of your curriculum sets and have enjoyed them all.
