Marcy @ Ben and Me5 Ways to Make Teaching Math Easier

What do you get when you cross a right-brained mom with a right-brained child? Besides a lot of creative, messy stuff?

I can promise you it’s not a propensity for math.

Lisa @ Farm Fresh Adventures — Why Teaching Science is my Waterloo

You know how Napoleon’s defeat by Lord Wellington in 1815 at Waterloo came to be a catch-phrase for a defeat or setback? That pretty much describes my experience with teaching Science. We love it. We really do. But when it comes to teaching it…well, I always end up going in unprepared, taking hits from my left flank and then I just have to retreat and try again another day!

Brandy @ Kingdom Academy HomeschoolMath Misadventures

Trying multiple curriculums in the hopes of finding one that works? Guilty! Stressing out night after night about whether or not my child is going to succeed? Guilty!

Deanna @ His Treasure Seekers — Clash of the Learning Styles (Our Daily Math Battle)

I always thought I hated math as a child, but really it was just that I hated the way it was taught. Now my greatest struggle in homeschooling is trying to avoid a similar experience for my son.

Jennifer @ Chestnut Grove AcademyThe Lost Arts

I mean really LOST arts! I have the best of intentions when it comes to music and art, but they always seem to be put on the back burner!

Emilee @ Pea of Sweetness — My Challenge with Teaching Reading/Phonics

Reading and Phonics seem like simple subjects to teach, but when you have learners with letter recognition and reading challenges it can become a challenge to teach as well!

Kemi @ Homemaking Organized — The Hardest Lesson to Learn in Our Homeschool

My dear daughter was selling herself short. If it didn’t come easy and was too much work she gave up!

Michele @ Faith, Family and Fridays — What Can be Harder Than Science?

…do you know what they want you to do for experiments? Now we have gone from cutesy stuff to blow up your house kind of stuff. Seriously! They want me to go to the local hardware store for stump removal liquid. Ummm, no thank you.

Laurie @ Grace-Filled Moments — How Do I Teach This Kid To Write?

Are you a homeschooling mom like me who struggles teaching the subject of writing in your homeschool? I hope I’m not alone. Today I want to share what I’ve learned about succeeding in teaching my son to write in our homeschool.

Lexi @ Lextin Academy — When Your Child Hasn’t Learned to Read

When I started our homeschooling journey I was most excited about teaching our kids to read. I love to read! Love, love, love books! I was thrilled that I could teach my kids to read and I just knew they would love it. I was only half right. . .

Chareen @ Every Bed of Roses — HELP! How am I going to teach … ?

Over the years I have come to realize that there are six hurdles every home educator faces when tackling a difficult to teach subject. Facing these could be easier than you think.

Tawnee @ Adventures in Homeschooling — The Reason that Math is a Subject We Continue to Struggle With

Now I’ll tell you a little about why its such a sore spot in our household. Let’s back up 3 years. Yes, 3 years — that’s when it started.

Julie @ Nurturing LearningThe Hardest Thing

I have a degree in Microbiology and spent all of college immersed in science; yet for some reason I can’t manage to make science a regular happenstance. Here’s how I manage to squeeze in a subject I find myself wanting to avoid.

Kathy @ Kathys Cluttered Mind — Mundane Math – Why I Struggle

Do you have a subject that you struggle teaching? Well for me it’s MATH. I have talked about this a few times on my blog. I find it mundane and hard to fit into our unschooling homeschool style. Plus I have two children who struggle with some dyslexia issues. Add my dyslexia issues and my husband’s and math is a difficult subject for our entire family.

Adriana @ Homeschool Ways — Science, Not Exactly My Cup of Tea

Words do come easy to me. Science, well, that’s another issue altogether. It is a lot easier to read a good piece of literature or to memorize the conjugation of French verbs. Thankfully, I can delegate science. That is my strategy in homeschooling and I’m sticking to it.

Lynn @ Ladybug Chronicles — Homeschool Teaching Struggles

Back when my children were younger, teaching all the subjects was easy. As they got older some subjects became more difficult to teach, mainly math. What should I do?

Annette @ A Net in Time — The Hardest Subject to Teach

And then it hit me… Homemaking… THAT is the subject I struggle with the most. You see I am NOT a natural born homemaker. I was taught by my mom, and taught well, but it’s not a task I appreciate or for the most part desire to even do. There are so many other things in life I would rather do… blog, take walks, read a book, play a game, care for my critters, talk with hubby/son/family/friends etc. So many more appealing things so I often neglect the house. I simply couldn’t be bothered for the most part.

Kym @ Homeschool Coffee Break — Mom Does Not Know Everything

I like to think I’m pretty smart (and that I’m pretty AND smart), but I don’t know everything. There are lots of things I don’t know, and lots of things I’m not good at. If you’re like me, and don’t know everything, but want to homeschool through high school, you might need some help.

Tess @ Circling Through This Life — Homeschool Teaching Nemesis: Writing

Teaching writing is my nemesis; it is the subject that I struggle with the most to teach. I find that odd because I love grammar. I love editing. I love reading. I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around teaching it.

Christine @ Our Homeschool Reviews — Hard Subjects to Teach

Over the years in our homeschool the subjects that have been hard to teach has changed.

Rebekah @ There Will Be a $5 Charge for Whining — Dear Math, I think the time has come for us to part ways. . .

To say that I have a bit of a Math phobia would be a big understatement. It’s been a challenge to teach something that has on occasion left me with a strange rash or at least has driven me to tears. If there were a way around using math forever I would be all for it.
