Grammar Galaxy Review and Giveaway!

Small banner O

I am going to have a live review and then a giveaway on my Facebook page Monday, October, 30th at 12:00 noon Eastern time!  I will show how it all works and I think you are going to love it.

Grammar Galaxy was created by Dr. Melanie Wilson/psychowith6. She is a Christian Psychologist turned homeschool mom.  She has had some crazy times making everything work, so she has been developing organizational and  sanity saving tips.  Along with Grammar Galaxy she has written a book called The Organized Homeschool Life.

The Organized Homeschool Life is a practical guide for achieving homeschool success, even if you’re not naturally organized. As you complete the weekly challenges, you will save time and money so you can enjoy teaching your children.” Dr. Melanie Wilson.

Grammar Galaxy is a story based Language Arts curriculum. There are two volumes so far, nebula and Prostar.  They both have Mission Manuals that go along with them.  Your kids will not even think they are learning.  When we do our Grammar Galaxy lesson, we do it all together. All three boys listen to the story and answer the questions.  The way Dr. Wilson has developed the “Mission Manual” all three boys are able to highlight or write the answers.  It is ingenious!  They especially love the erasable highlighter that you get if you order the HARD copy.  I am really excited to show you all Grammar Galaxy, it makes Language Arts a breeze.  The first volume is technically for young readers, but even my 12 year old son is learning and having fun with it.  The second volume is geared towards third grade and up, but like I said, my 12 year old is enjoying the first volume.  We are going to go all the way through both volumes together.  I love having lessons we can do all together and don’t require any prep work! Dr. Wilson also has a facebook support page you can join. It offers extra support, challenges and ideas.  I hope to see you at the review and giveaway!  Here is the Hunt’s Happy Homeschool Facebook Link to join us Monday!  Please share with anyone you think would be interested in this.

I almost forgot!!!  Dr. Wilson made a special discount code for all of my followers.  Get 10% off with code HuntsHappy10. This code is only good until November 12th, so get your orders in soon!  If you order before the giveaway and you win the free pdf in my giveaway, Dr. Wilson will refund your money. So,   Please visit Dr. Wilson’s website and check out her book and Grammar Galaxy.  See you Monday! Mandy

 

 

What’s Up Wednesday

Good Morning! I hope your week is going well. Ours has been good and a little rough at the same time. The rough part wasn’t that bad, just kiddos not wanting to do chores or some school work I wanted them to complete.

We had a fun trip to a local farm. They boys learned more about planting and growing pumpkins. They got to feed some ponies, goats and a donkey. We went through a straw and a corn maze. Then they took us out to the pumpkin patch by way of a hay ride. A little bumpy, but lots of fun. Lol After we rode on the hay ride back to the farm’s store we enjoyed some cider slushies. It was a beautiful day too. The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect.

What have you all been up to this week? Anything new and fun, or has it been a rough week?

Just to let you know, we will be having our next Thinking Tree Journal giveaway this Friday! I will let you know the time soon! I will also be scheduling the Grammar Galaxy Review and the KidArtLit review soon. I am still waiting on some clarification on some things. I think you guys are going to love all of these products! Let me know if there is a product you would like me to check out for you and I will see if I can do a review for you. I just found a neat product that is like legos, but that shows up on a tablet as you connect them. I have contacted them and am hoping to get to do a review and at least a coupon code if not a giveaway! So, let me know if you have any thoughts! I hope you all have a fun week! Talk to you later!

Life Skills for You and Your Children

Hey guys, I know I have posted a lot of stuff today and I promise this will be the last one.

So many kids these days do not know basic life skills. Even employers are struggling to find young people with the basics they need for a job.  Check out Skill Trek! It is a really neat company that has ekits and physical kits you can order to help cover a ton of basic life skills. We all try to cover what we know…but we can’t know or remember to teach everything.  Skill Trek is a great company that was started by a couple that saw a need and wanted to help fill it.  Here is the link, check it out! Share with anyone you think it might help…even adults!

Motivation Monday

I think this verse describes homeschool mamas perfectly. It covers so many aspects of our homeschool journey. So many times we feel like we have failed at keeping our homes clean, yelling at the kids, not taking care of ourselves,or not gotten through to our kids with their school work or just getting them to listen. We have tried to get them to read the same sentence for 5 days and they STILL can’t. We blame ourselves, our choices….we don’t look at the bigger picture. Maybe it just takes this child a bit longer to grasp…maybe they really arent ready to read yet. We compare ourselves to other homeschooler’s children and we compare ourselves to public school kids, we listen to the negative comments from people that don’t agree with your decision to homeschool. We need to stop all of that, but we also need to realize that we will fall time to time, but how we get back up again is the key. If we allow defeat, what are we teaching our kids, that they aren’t worth teaching? That when things get difficult you just quit. No, you get through the tough time, you move on, you try something new, you talk to your kids and are honest with them. Rise again! Rise strong and determined. Rise with a goal in mind, whether it is a goal for that day, that hour, that minute, accomplish something. Maybe just making your bed, reading a book to your child, taking some time to pray, meditate or whatever helps settle your mind and spirit. Lean on God and He will give you the strength to rise from the frustration, anger, hurt, insecurities. I have to tell myself these things too. We are not alone…we all go through these times, but how you rise from them is what we need to pay attention to. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and that if you are in the trenches right now, I pray you find strength and rise again! Talk to you soon! Mandy
