Why I Gave Up Traditional Math Flashcards and Cut Study Time in Half

Uncategorized Mar 27, 2023

Mathematics can be a challenging subject to learn, and it often requires a lot of practice and repetition to master. Traditional flashcards have been a popular tool for students to memorize math concepts and equations, but they can be time-consuming and sometimes ineffective. In this blog post, I will explain why I gave up traditional math flashcards and cut my kids' study time in half by using a visual strategy.


Traditional math flashcards can be a useful tool for students, but they are not always the most effective or efficient way to study. By using a visual strategy, students can engage with the material in a more active way, develop a deeper understanding of the concepts, and save time in the process. So, if you're tired of the traditional flashcard method, give the visual strategy a try and see how it can benefit your math studies.

Is there "Behind" in Homeschool? | Easy Tips to "Catch Up"

Uncategorized Nov 02, 2022

The most significant homeschooling risk I took was when I 

received the results from testing, looked over my child's IEP and intervention needed, and decided to forgo the public school's help and homeschool them myself. 

I decided to take the risk because I knew my child best and understood the simple game plan of meeting them where they were and giving them the resources and encouragement to advance their skills one step at a time.

Sometimes homeschooling can feel like eating an elephant, but how do you do it? One bite at a time. There is no unique formula or shortcut; it's just consistency, dedication, patience, and proper framing of your role. 


Your role is not to impress your friends with how smart your kids are. 

Your part is not to jump through hoops to magnify the area your children shine in (that will more or less take care of itself with little help); your role is to help them with their weaknesses because that holds them back.

Avoid This At All Cost!

Uncategorized Oct 24, 2022

I wanted to write a blog post today to bring to light a mistake many homeschoolers have been making, despite trying their best not to. 

Are you ready? 

Here's the thing. 

When parents decide to homeschool, they assume they need a curriculum for every subject.

And that is when they commit this grave mistake that YOU must avoid at all costs: Adding unnecessary busy work from curriculums that want you to perceive the value in their consumable or non-consumable materials that are both costly and time-consuming! 

You HAVE to avoid this at all costs because:


  • It can often be unnecessary spending on materials that will end up in the trash after use or on the shelf, taunting you for wasting money.
  • Thinking that learning comes only from the curriculum will keep you shopping for the best and constantly comparing.
  • You will miss out on the best English literature that silently begs you to serve as the teacher as it sits quietly and lonely in the public domain or...
