CTCMath Review

Review a math program in the summer? The mention of math is normally a forbidden four-letter word around here, especially during the summer! After a less than spectacular year with our first year of high school math, an opportunity arose to review a 12-month Family Membership from CTCMath. Honestly, the timing could not have been better!

Lightning Literature Set (Grade 7) Review

Literature study has been something that I have struggled with in our homeschool. My goal is for my reluctant readers to find reading something to be enjoyed naturally, and to be able to recognize and appreciate quality literature. Hewitt Homeschooling Resources has been on my radar for several months now. I was excited to have the opportunity to review the  Gr 7 Lightning Lit Set for my son, and my older daughter joined us.
