    I would like to follow your blog.

  2. I’m so glad I found this site! I am just starting to homeschool. My daughter is 41/2 years old and I have been looking into homeschooling sites since she was 2. I have chosen the Charolette Mason style of homeschooling. This will be a great asset for me. Thank you for sharing!

    • That is exciting!!! We did strictly Charlotte Mason style when we first started out schooling my four older ones. I loved it! We spent much time together, learning new things and exploring and reading. It was wonderful. The reason I stopped and went more “traditional” is because we started having many babies and life got very busy. We have different seasons and times of our life. Enjoy all these moments with your daughter:) Be blessed

  3. Really great, thank you! You are very gifted. We are going to have a great school year because of you. Your ideas and curriculum seem better than all the stuff I paid for over the years, really, it just all seems so reasonable and do able! I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I pray your available until I’m through homeschooling, and I have a ways to go too 😃

    • I plan on being here and offering more things each year:) I am very happy that it is of benefit to you. Enjoy the ease… you have time to do something else:) Be blessed

  4. Thank you SOOO MUCH! I am genuinely loving all this information…but struggling to find the links to the websites. Thank you for all your resources on your blog!

    • The links are under my free schooling resource menu.Then, click on the box and it will take you to the pdf pages. Let me know if you can’t find them still.

  5. Sorry Amy, I meant the reading comprehension and 6th grade map skills book. I think I have finally found the reading comprehensions and Treasures book and comprehension pages. But I still can’t find the map skills book. Thanks if you can help at all!

  6. I am starting homeschooling for my five year old daughter Kiara and it will be kindergarten and I need help getting started. I was looking for kindergarten stuff to get her started can you send me in the right direction. thanks

    • Hey Brittany—I am so excited for you!! Kindergarten is exciting. Myself, we stay basic. Normally I would not do a whole lot and just wait until 1st grade. Since we have many children and it “worked” to have my 2 kindergartners start this year, we kept it simple. I downloaded worksheets from various sites.(On my video I share the links to the sites I used) You could very easily do them yourself. Stick to the basics—-teach her how to recognize the letters. Draw them out and find things that make their sound. Practice colors and numbers and shapes. Play with her. Engage with her. Get educational videos, do simple crafts, read, read, read to her. Don’t feel like you “have to do school” for so many hours. Make learning part of life. There will be plenty of time to get her to sit and do school next year. I promise. If you didn’t want to print things off, grab one of those big thick worksheet books like at Sams Club that has preschool/kindergarten work in it ($8). Stay away from worrying about teaching phonics and reading until next year. Just let her practice cutting and gluing. Learning to color properly. Writing her name. Those are all easily taught skills. When you begin next year, you can print off my first grade pages and it will have review of kindergarten skills to know. They are much easier for first grader to grasp in a short amount of time verses teaching a kindergartner over a long period of time. Hope some of this advice helps. Be blessed. Amy

  7. she can sing the alphabet and her number 1-10 but now working on recognize and writing and sound. What is too much per day or per week ?

    Do you have a 4th grade curriculum? My kids are flying through the third grade one & will be ready to move onto the 4th grade one in less then a month. We love your stuff!

    • I am so glad that you enjoyed this curriculum. My suggestion, just skip and goto 5th grade. Most everything is repetitive in these grades. Next year I will have 4th grade as I will have one in that level. Have a great day!

  9. Hi Amy,
    I am also a mama of 10 kids ranging in ages from 23 years down to 9 months. Just wanted to thank you for your free homeschooling resources. I have been homeschooling for 17 years and last fall I was ready to quit. I even asked my husband to consider putting the kids in public school. He said no, but asked for me to take a break and just unschool the kids and keep track of their interests. Well, after resting awhile some of the kids were looking for a little more direction in their studies and your resources have been perfect! I have a 9 year old that struggles with reading so I started him at your K/1st grade workbook and he is finally getting it. He is so excited to be reading. Thank you so much. Blessings to you, Anna Mary

    • Your so welcome Anna Mary, it is tough. There were many times when we just stopped schooling altogether! My children still wanted to learn on their own afterawhile. Reading is hard, especially for boys. My boys waited until they were older and I never pushed them. I encouraged lots of hands on work and that is what they are best at. Keep at it —keep it simple——and just let the extra learning come naturally. Stick to the basics and you will catch up on the rest when you feel like it. We covered many years of just the basics and then when I realized that I hadn’t done times tables with my older ones, we worked on that and guess what? They learned in half the time! Relax a bit and read. Enjoy your babies!!! Be blessed Amy

  10. My son will be two in July. I’m looking for activities to get him ready from homeschool. At what age should I start the curriculum? How day a week and long a day each day for the first year?

    • Kay, I am so happy that you are going to choose to homeschool your son. Can I say…….don’t do any “formal” schooling until he is 4-5 years old. Play with him, engage with him, make everyday opportunities of life learning experiences. Don’t stifle him at that age to a chair, explore and create with him. Set up stations and have playdough be an activity you do. Do stringing wooden blocks on yarn. Make crafts, play with water. Make a rice table…..the learning activities are endless. I would not do anything personally until 5 or 6 years old:) He is young, make learning fun by just playing with him with “real” toys. That will grow his brain at a way bigger way then confining him to a chair with paper and pencil:) HOpe this helps! Have a blessed day/

  11. I am so thankful to God for coming across your site today! I am a homeschooling Mom to 5 wonderful children, and I am looking for a different curriculum for a few of my children for next year. I was wondering if you have a math curriculum for Middle School? Thank you so much for being a blessing other homeschooling families!!!! 🙂

    • Hello and I am very happy that you have found me as well:) I have the sixth grade math course and then the next one I have is the highschool basic math and prealgebra course. You could use that for middle school too. I will next year have more:) Hope some of this helps! Have a wonderful day.

  12. I found the site to download the McGraw Hill Treasures workbooks, but where do you download the books for my kids to read?

    • I have not been able to find it:( They removed the link. But the books are great to print off and use. There is one page that pertains to the reading book, but we just skipped that.
