  • What We’re Reading in Our Homeschool: January 2020 – In the fashion of a beloved YouTube Homeschool Mom, I have taken to making it a new habit to share with my family and friends through the Creative Madness Mama blog what we are reading. Writing it all out is astonishing and brings up many memories and new traditions.
  • Any advice for someone about to start Memoria Press First Grade? – “In a private message, someone asked me for advice for starting the First Grade Classical Core Curriculum with Memoria Press and as I started to write my response I realized it would be too much not to share and decided to make it a full blog post. To date, this is one of the biggest questions I get asked by readers all the time. The pegs planted in my child’s mind have already given her a desire and a passion to learn so much more. At the beginning of our curriculum year, my daughter could stumble along and read, sounding out things as she went along. Now she’s enthusiastic and passionate about reading! She appreciates water-color and classical illustrations and compares her school books to the current publications that grace our shelves.”
  • American History Resources, what are your favorites? – This school year, I am teaching students in respectively 4th, 2nd, and PreK (and tot school!) Grades. We decided this year to really pour on the steam and study American History. Brought on from a hiatus of immersion in the ancients and a brief foray into the middle ages. As I’m starting to gather all of the American History resources that I have collected over the years into one place, I’m curious as to what others use to bring US History alive for your students.
