Back To School

August is our Back-to-School month here at Home & School Mosaics. I’ve had our school shelves stocked for the past few weeks, and I keep telling myself that I need to write a blog post (or two) sharing what we’re planning to be using this year – both curriculum and supplements – but I haven’t […]

Three Fun Books to Help With Writing

In debating our current curriculum choices, I knew that I really wanted to focus on the basic subjects . . . Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. I had the math down; we actually do a few different things in that subject. I even do a few different things with reading. But writing is just a subject […]

My Favorite Homeschool Resources!

It’s that time of year once again! Back to school time! Many of you have been or are in the midst of planning out your school year! Maybe you have already started! Or perhaps your family is like our family and you never stop schooling! We are year round homeschoolers and never really take a […]

These are a Few of My Favorite Things …

Although many families may have already started their school year, I know those up north don’t typically start until September. I wanted to share some of my favorite high school resources with readers this month. I have graduated three and have two in high school this school year. For Religion, I have one tried and true […]

Copycat McRib Sandwich

Ahhhh…the McRib! This is one of McDonald’s restaurants’ special sandwiches that was brought to the menu, removed, and then after a promotion later on, was popular enough to bring back for a short time almost every year after its re-introduction. I loved the taste of this sandwich, but there is just something about knowing what’s […]

Beginnings are Everything!

Do you remember your first days of school?  How the year began had everything to do with how you felt about school in general and how well you did (or didn’t do) during that year. Way back in the day, the start of school signaled, for me, impending doom and enslavement.  For the next 9+ […]

Find a Different Way

Well, you knew ‘it’ would come sooner or later. You’ve hopefully enjoyed a restful summer and are ready to jump back into the school year! Yeah, me neither. But here we are. I think it’s normal for parents and kids to feel a little “cloudy” just thinking about the coming year, but if you’re dreading […]

Delaying the Inevitable

August is almost here. The phrase, “where has the time gone?” is beginning to hit home with me more and more these days. Yesterday, I had a little boy and girl, a husband, the perfect life.   Well, it seemed like yesterday.   That little boy is 15 1/2 and now drives me everywhere I go. The […]

Learning Together: Siblings Teaching Each Other

When our two older children were 8 and 6, I gave birth to our youngest son. Our family has two children very close in age and an age gap between our older ones and youngest. In my opinion, it’s awesome! Michael has had TWO extra cheerleaders and TWO extra teachers. It seems a natural thing […]

Not Back to School – Starting it!

What do you do when your two-year-old is crazy smart (and let’s face it, all of our two-year-olds are!), showing great signs of interest in reading and counting, but any sort of program near you doesn’t accept children under the age of three or are ridiculously out of a single income family’s price range? Well, […]

My Angel

The month of August has some pretty unique holidays in it, most of them so obscure that not many people even know about them. August 22nd has been dubbed Be an Angel Day, and was founded by Jayne Howard Feldman, a reverend and author. The purpose of the day is to encourage us to do […]

Back-to-School Streaming

I think it’s fair to say that the Internet has changed our lives. Twenty years ago the web browser my college used didn’t allow photographs to display. Fifteen years ago it took my home web 5 minutes to load one photograph. Ten years ago we no longer had to hang up the phone to use […]

Homeschooling For FREE

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
