    It's Baaaaaacccccccccckkkkkkk! The DITL was SO popular in the past, that we decided to bring it back for 2018!

    Are you new to SHS? Old timer who never entered? Were you shy the first time around? What are you waiting for?!!!

    We love, LOVE, L-O-V-E our Secular Homeschool members SO much....that we want to read all about your homeschool! We would like to feature any and all members who would be willing to share a little bit about what goes on in the daily life of your homeschool!

    This is totally voluntary, of course. But if enough members were willing to share, we will feature 1 PER MONTH on our home page! We can't imagine anything more fun than getting to be a fly on the wall of our members' homes for 24 hours, so the more submissions the better! ...

They will notice a small feather lodged between rocks. They’ll spot a millipede on the side of a lamp post. They might even be the one to discover the four leaf clover in the middle of a field. Whatever they spy with their little eye is worth journaling about. Even better, there are no rules! They may want to tell a story about what lives between the mushrooms in the woods. They may want to label each part of the robin on the fence. Mother Nature can certainly be a young writer’s greatest muse.

    Postcard exchange

    We usually host a postcard exchange on the SecularHomeschool.com forum each summer where members of SHS can privately share addresses, ages, and ...

    They're both solid options. "Not mathy" makes me think Teaching Textbooks, but you already know it didn't work for you. I'd try ALEKS first, I think. It has a reputation for being a little easier...

    Any opinion on Aleks or Thinkwell?

    I am looking for a computer based math curriculum for my ds. He is going to be starting Algebra 1. He is not a mathy person and I have found he prefers learning via computer for most things.
