Hi everyone! As I mentioned yesterday, for one week only everything in the Confessions store is on sale! Yep, you heard me for one week only, everything at Confessions of a Homeschooler is 30% off!



Today I’m featuring more of my Homeschooling 101 eBook & Classical Literature Unit Studies!


So you’ve finally decided to homeschool…but have no clue where to get started? After thousands of emails asking for help getting started homeschooling, I thought a book that set it all out for you in a step-by-step format would a great benefit to new and current homeschoolers!

Homeschooling 101 is a step by step practical guide that will help you to get started, and continue on in your homeschooling journey. It is designed to help guide you through all of the steps to getting started, choosing and gathering curriculum, creating effective lesson plans, scheduling your day, organizing your home, staying the course and more! It even includes a FREE LESSON PLANNER & helpful homeschooling forms!


And of course I added a TON of awesome homeschool planning forms to help you get organized!





The Classical literature Unit studies are a great way to read through the classics, and have a great review tool when you’re done!

Each unit study contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the book. They also include book reports, vocabulary, critical thinking, story timelines, and comprehension. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

I really designed these units to be a fun addition to reading the classics. I didn’t want them to be too stressful for myself or my kiddos, but instead give them something fun to do along with the stories to help them remember what they’ve learned in a fun hands-on way. The lap books included are wonderful for reviewing subject matter, and a great creative interactive homeschooling tool.

The units also include forms for predicting story plots, character analysis, identifying the protagonist and antagonist, a story timeline, and a final book report on the novel.

Here are the current units available, they can be purchased individually or as a Classic Literature Unit Study Mega Pack:

  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Black Beauty
  • Charlotte’s Web
  • The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
  • The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
  • Little House in the Big Woods

  1. Thank you Erica. Your blog is a wonderful place full on inspiration. My 10 year old has just come out of school after seeing how happy his 7 year old sister has become. I have just purchased a lot of your curriculum as the literature, artists, scientists and Earth expedition are all things that I can do with both of them together which certainly makes life easier. I have also purchased your new ebook as I know it will be full of very useful information and something to dip into regularly. Thank you for all your hard work and I hope your house sale/move is going well.

  2. Thank you so much! I did the Expedition Earth with my kids last year and they loved it. I was looking at your other stuff just a few weeks ago and was so excited to see the sale this week. I’m excited to start using your products and my kids are too! Thank you for all the work you put into creating these and making them available for others to use.

  3. Hello, I do not have a website.
    I did order your classic literature package. We have been slowly using it..but thoroughly enjoying it. I use it as a reward when we need a change of pace in english.
    What I am writiing is to ask, is-is there a difference between The Story of Doctor Dolittle, and The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle?
    Seems I was too quick at the second hand book store! I bought the “story of” version. When I checked into it on google. It seems that the version I bought was printed two years later then the “Voyages” version. Wondering if you know if they are different or just reprints.
    Looking forward to diving into another Classic!
