I have been homeschooling for 13 years. I have four daughters currently in school. I create lessons for grades Pre-K through elementary and also provide a variety of activities for preschool children with special needs as I create them for my own preschooler.
I love teaching activity-based lessons and using games that cover subject content thoroughly, but enjoyably.
Associates Degree in Christian Education with a minor in Music Theory.
I currently homeschool my four daughters and love it! We are in our 10th year of homeschooling While homeschooling, we traveled to 44 of the United States, 3 Canadian Provinces and 4 other countries and continue to add to that list as time passes. We have recently returned to the U.S. to live and love having access to even more ways to make learning hands-on. After several years of trying to fit our learning/teaching styles to the pre-written curricula and being unsatisfied, I began to make learning materials to supplement. We found that many curricula lacked the hands-on learning experience and that they were very textbook heavy. As I firmly believe that children learn through action and not being stuck behind a desk, these frustrations led me to create the engaging games and activities that you will find in my shop. I focused on activities that could be used more than one time without being 'boring' to my children. This is the reason that most of my resources are in color rather than black & white, though I have tried to make that option available when appropriate. I hope that you will enjoy these activities and, more importantly, that your students will benefit from their use.
