Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals 2015 for Homeschoolers!

It’s Black Friday again, and that means everything under the sun is on sale! I find it tedious to keep up with all of the sales and score great deals on all of those products that we homeschool moms know and love! I spent quite a bit of time browsing the sales, since I have […]

How I Did Homeschool Bible Time with Only Littles – with a video!

Several weeks ago, I published a video where I described what our current Bible time looks like each day.  Right now, I have a 5th grader, 3rd grader, 1st grader, and Early Kindergartner. While many of you emailed and said you loved the video, you wanted to know what our homeschool Bible time looked like […]

10 Fun Card Games for Kids

My children love to play games – board games, outside games, card games, anything! We’ve been fortunate to stumble upon several tried-and-true card games that we play frequently. Occasionally, we take a morning off from school and just play card games.  Or my kiddos and my husband might play a few hands on a rainy […]

What We Put in Our Leaves Science Basket (plus a video!)

Over the summer, I posted a few ideas for using Activity Baskets for your young learners. My girls absolutely adored them, and still ask for them routinely! Because I have trouble fitting science in on most days (there’s only so many hours in my day!), I brainstormed ways I could make this activity basket into […]

Resources for the New Homeschool Mom – with a new video!

When I was a brand spankin’ new homeschool mama, I was pretty overwhelmed.  And exhausted. My oldest was starting Kindergarten, and I also had a 3 year old, and a 16-month old. And my #4 was due in November. It was an extremely busy season in my life. I think back to those early years […]

Our Favorite Books About Apples!

I’ve mentioned a couple of times on Facebook this week that my children and I study apples every single September. Why? Well, mostly because it is one of my favorite unit studies, if truth be told! We love to have apple taste tests, we try to visit an orchard and pick a few apples, and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Activity Basket for Kids: Summer Themed!

My girls absolutely adore their weekly activity baskets!  This week’s activity basket for kids is summer themed – fun! If you’ve seen the other activity baskets I’ve shared, you know that my financial goal for these baskets is $5 or less, and this basket definitely met that goal. The only things brand new in the […]
