Behind the lesson plans
Hi, I’m Jennifer
My goal is to help homeschool families find encouragement and awesome lesson ideas. You will find blog posts featuring time-saving tips, organizational strategies, homeschool book lists, and homeschool curriculum reviews.
I consider myself an eclectic homeschooler because we pull from multiple educational philosophies, based on whatever is working best. My absolute favorite ways to teach are:
- Good literature
- Hands-on lessons
- Field trips
Choosing the right curriculum for your family can take a lot of research or a little bit of trial and error. Be sure to consider your children’s learning style, your teaching preferences, and your budget when researching different options.
