This week over at The heart of the matter, the meme is what is your favorite home school product! Its been very fun to look and see what everyone treasures are! So if you have a few... try to stop by and take a look!
Now for my favorite product/s *Ü*
Tapestry of GraceIt is everything I love about different curriculum's in one! I have been able to teach all 3 of my children on the same topic each week, using a literature/unit study approach. TOG follows the classic model, recognizing children learn in different stages like the grammar levels, dialect also called logic and rhetoric. I can take TOG light, or heavy and also in between. The work has been done for me, I just decide how we want to proceed and what books to choose...I love this curriculum!
is my all time favorite home school product!
Now right along with Tapestry of Grace... I love page protectors!! I love to write and take notes, so I place every page (yup every) in a page protector so if I want to, I can write and note till my hearts content!
My next favorite is RyLees Spanish! Its called La Clase Divertida level 1. Besides math, this has become RyLees favorite part of the day. She is able to do this independent of me as well and loves it! She watches a dvd, has a work book to fill out each week, vocabulary, crafts and recipes to make for every lesson. This has been a big hit with her and she cant wait to move on to the next box! Level 2. This will be soon.
I have a new magnetic white board in my dining room... and it gets used a lot... but I have something I love even more! Its an expandable chart stand with paper! I bought it from Discount School Supply Store online. Its been the best! All the vocabulary all the examples of writing.... mini timeline with history.. you name it... I don't erase things any more and re write! I just flip the page! I love it.... I never would have thought about buying one... seriously, but my friend Jessica over at Trivium Academy had one... and well... you know... I had to have one too! *Ü*
My last, but not least favorite is Accountable kids.
This has been a plus with Rylee. Its a chore chart, but also rewards accomplished tasks. I became a cheerleader and not the nag with this one. I'm not sure why I couldn't use my old chore chart this way with her and get the same results.... but it has been a blessing... It put the responsibility to accomplish school, chores or what ever task I assign that day... squarely on her shoulders. No one is to blame but herself if it doesn't get done.... Its been a great aid and visual help with chores, accountability and character in doing a job well done.
Live and Learns products have been fantastic this year and fit nicely in our science and history studies...I could go on and on... but I guess I need to stop at some point right. Sorry I couldn't choose one!
Don't forget, many others are participating today! Stop by The Heart of The Matter and take a look! Its been fun!
