How I Manage a Crazy Busy Week

This week is going to be insanely busy for me.  My husband and I are co-hosting a family reunion with 30+ people (which means I have to buy groceries for the event AND clean my house-eek!), we have extra music lessons, and we need to homeschool 2 full days. Whew!  It’s going to be c-r-a-z-y! If […]

Apple Printables for Kindergarten-First Grade

It is apple picking season and we couldn’t be more excited! As you know, I’m planning an apple unit study with my girls (ages 7, 5, and 3 1/2) and I’ve spent quite a bit of time creating printables and gathering my resources. These apple printables would make the perfect supplement to your own unit […]

What Bible Time Looks Like in Our Homeschool

Over our 6 years of homeschooling, our Bible time has looked different almost every year.  As my children have grown to different ages and stages, our Bible time has changed with it. One of my most asked questions is what our Bible time looks like each day.  I’d be happy to share what that looks […]

Apple Blank Writing Pages

We are heading straight into one of my favorite times of the year: Apple Season! Around the end of August/beginning of September, I grow oh so weary of the North Carolina heat and humidity and dream of fall days and jeans. So I’m sorry to say, but the fall posts will start just a bit […]

A Time Saving Tip When Using All About Spelling

Despite changing curriculum in a few subjects over our past 6 years of homeschooling, there are certain subjects where we found the perfect curriculum fit the first time. Don’t you love it when that happens?! All About Spelling (affiliate link) was one of those staple curricula that we fell in perfect alignment with from the get […]

Come Visit Me on You Tube!

Are you a You Tube fan?  I sure am.  You can find anything there! Since I started Mama’s Learning Corner back in June 2011, I’ve only recorded a handful of videos.  My biggest trouble was that I couldn’t find user-friendly (read: simple) video editing software. But woo hoo!  I was able to find software for […]

How to Find More Time in Your Homeschool Day

As a homeschool mama, I find several things pretty challenging about the actual homeschool day.  If I’ve ever made it seem like homeschooling is a breeze for us, it was just a miscommunication because some aspects of this life are just tough! I never want you to think that I have it all together, because […]

Sight Words Puzzle Cards: Dolch Primer Words

It’s been many months since I posted the first set of sight word puzzle cards using the Pre-Primer Dolch word list. My girls have matched them a million times over! So it is long past time to post the Dolch Primer word set! My first grader is turning into quite the reader, but she still […]

Days of the Week Worksheets

During our calendar time in the mornings, my girls and I review the Days of the Week often. We sing the Days of the Week song, practice yesterday and tomorrow in their calendar notebooks, and I talk about the abbreviations with my First Grader. Since my First Grader is so eager to “use her pencil” […]
