Using Spelling City to the best of your child's abilities!

If you child is a game person AND they need help with their Spelling! Be sure to check out Spelling City's Match It game! It is one of our personal favs! We love it! We love Spelling City for the spelling assistance in itself but more than that we love the fact that they have GAMES to play with your spelling words! My high schoolers STILL use Spelling City! Their spelling has improved 100% over the past 4 years of use! What is Match It game you ask! MatchIt Sentences is VocabularySpellingCity's fun word match game that guides students to match sentences with the word that best completes them. The object of MatchIt Sentences is to match the word that accurately fills in the blank of a corresponding sentence. MatchIt Sentences is excellent for building vocabulary skills. It also builds logic and reasoning skills by requiring students to find the best overall solution by using a process of elimination. MatchIt Sentences is available as an online activity or as a printable worksheet. Be sure to check it out!

Homeschooling secularly!

How do I homeschool? Well, I homeschool secular! We are non-religious homeschoolers, secular homeschoolers, or homeschool secular. We have met many types of homeschoolers over the past 4 years and we are cool with however they want to homeschool. I believe that as my children grow, they have the choice to decide on their own religion, their own beliefs and I prefer to keep that out of our schooling! We believe in evolution, we believe in science, we believe in teaching how we need to teach! But there is no wrong way for homeschooling! If you are religious, good for you! If you are scientific, good for you! If you are secular, good for you! If you are unschoolers, good for you! If you are road schoolers, good for you! If you are online schoolers, good for you! I love to hear about different ways to homeschool, I love to hear if they work for you, don't work for you....etc. Post away! Tell me what kind of homeschooler are you! And WHY!!
