Affiliate Love…

Hi everyone! I wanted to take some time today to share some of my favorite companies with you. These products are some that we personally endorse and use in our homeschooling.

thankyou

 

I think you should know, that I’m fairly picky on what we use. And even more so with what I will recommend to you!

For that reason, I only review/giveaway products that we have enjoyed in our home and want to share with you too!

So today is dedicated to the awesome companies that have supported Confessions and have a special place in our hearts!

 

Our Favorites:

 

aalpAll About Learning Press has both reading and spelling products available which we love! All About Spelling teaches encoding skills, spelling rules, and multisensory strategies to help your student become a proficient speller! All About Reading is a complete program teaching phonics, decoding, fluency, and comprehension in a fun and engaging way.

 

 

 

witbWhat’s in the Bible? are a series of fun DVDs that take your family on a journey through the Bible! They go all the way from Genesis through Revelation using fun engaging characters. They also have curriculum to go along with the DVDs to make your learning experience more complete!

 

 

 

 

ftf

Family Time Fitness has been our “go to” for homeschool PE for the last several years. They offer a variety of packages, but we mainly use the Core curriculum.  This has both printable lesson plans along with instructional videos, warm ups, cool downs, and indoor and outdoor activities making the program quite flexible for our family!

 

 

 

 

seelightSee the Light Art Classes are a great way to experience a variety of artistic techniques while at the same time incorporating Biblical lessons too! The videos include step by step instruction, materials lists, and have been a great introduction to art in our home.

 

 

 

 

musMath U See is a hands-on comprehensive math curriculum that we’ve used and loved for years! They are a mastery-based program designed to teach specific skills that build as your student progresses through each level. They currently have levels ranging from Kindergarten through Calculus, and Stewardship for older students.

 

 

 

mus_ipad

I’m particularly excited about the new Math U See iPad App that allows you to do all of the same things you can do with their manipulatives, only using the convenience of your iPad! This is great for days when we do school on the road!

 

 

 

 

grapevine

Grapevine Bible Studies have been a favorite in our house for a few years. The units take students through the Bible in a memorable way by having them draw out the lessons. They call it “stick figuring through the Bible”. You don’t have to be a great artist to do this, just simple stick figures get the point across! We love both the multi-level curriculum and the traceables for the Teeny Tot!

 

 

 

Spielgaben_Banner_125x125

Spielgaben is a great hands-on learning tool that helps develop a variety of skill sets. This product encourages creative play with direction in logical thinking skills, geometry, and mathematic skills. The set also comes with daily lesson plans, inspiration cards, worksheets, and more to help you incorporate Spielgaben into your homeschool!

 

 

 

 

Friends and Heroes Friends and Heroes is another great Bible Curriculum. They have Bible stories on DVD along with a cross-curriclular Homeschool Unit study for each with easy to use lessons and hands-on units for your students.

  1. I didn’t know about the Math U See iPad app. I’ll have to go check that out. Thanks!

    Do you know whether or not the Math U See curriculum is better than Saxon? Thanks!

    • Hi Lina,
      I think it really depends on you and your student. I don’t think there’s a “which one is proven better” answer I can give you though. We tried Saxon and hated it, and so we really prefer Math U See.

      Saxon is a spiral approach so students do a little bit of each skill every day. Our experience was that my kids didn’t learn any of the skills very well. It’s kind of like jack of all trades, master of none to me.

      Math U See is a mastery approach program, and I prefer how they explain/they teach the various math skills. I also really like how they master each skillset before moving onto the next. It makes the harder skills much easier to learn. There is review of previous learned skills so you don’t forget as well. My only thing with MUS is they don’t cover money or time well enough in my opinion, but that has been easily resolved for us by adding in the Kumon Time and Kumon Counting Money books as a supplement.
