Dr. Bonyfide review by Hopkins Homeschool

Amanda says, “This is such a fun curriculum that I don’t have to argue with him to work on it. I think we will end up going through more than one book each year, as Ray Ray loves to read them that much. If you are looking for a fun way to get your child interested in learning about their skeletal system, Dr. Bonyfide is the guy for you!” Read the rest of her review at Hopkins Homeschool.

Dr. Bonyfide review by So Every Day

Lacey says, “The book gives the scientific names of the bones and the students are working on memorizing and identifying all the bones named properly and – let me tell you – that is hard.  Proximal, carpal, phalange, metacarpal, scaphoid, hamate and tricky words like that – for third and fourth graders.  Truthfully, I had my doubts as we waded through the words and read the rhymes together and I have been tempted to not have Piper and Otto memorize these bone names.  But each lesson I have been surprised at their desire to recite all the names to me, […]

Physics 101 review by The Flanders Family

Jennifer says, “Physics 101 did not disappoint. Although I planned to use this introductory course for my high schoolers (it’s part of Timberdoodle’s 10th Grade Curriculum Set), my younger kids quickly became engrossed in the video lessons, as well. So did I. I learned stuff in this course I never knew before — despite the fact I’d taken three years of physics in high school and college. That’s because Wes Olson, the host of the 101 Series, is a master at asking intelligent questions, then answering them with easy-to-follow explanations.” Read the rest of her review at The Flanders Family […]

Chemistry 101 review by Wonder-filled Days

Suzanna says, “I have two sons doing high school chemistry this year.  This year I have a son in 9th grade and one in 11th so one of them is using Integrated Physics and Chemistry and one of them is using Jay Wile’s Discovering Design with Chemistry. So when Timberdoodle offered me a copy of Chemistry 101 in exchange for a review I jumped at the chance.  I knew that having a teacher that’s passionate about the subject matter would make Chemistry come alive for them.” Read the rest of her review at Wonder-filled Days.

Surprise! Curriculum Planning Really Isn’t For Everyone. (Let’s build curriculum kits)

Families tell us they love our Core Curriculum Packages but I wonder how many realize why it took us so long to offer that option. For over twenty years we clung to the belief that if you were going to go to the work of homeschooling, you would want to hand-select each item for each child. After all, that was what our family had chosen to do! Of course, we had always been eager to help families, and it was not uncommon for a mom to call asking where to start for a particular grade. We would give some recommendations […]
