    I am sorry to bother but having a hard time getting things going on group board. Are you still working towards raising patriots? This was the first group I found and decide to join as opposed to just being a lurker, but alas it seems no one is home. Please tell me I am not the only one out there working towards this goal.

    Hi, hello! I just saw your post in the New York group. I'm from the Westchester County/Bronx area too. I'm wondering if you've found any other local homeschooling groups. Also can you recommend any sites or groups that can help me understand the state laws and regulations because I'm so confused. I would appreciate any help, thank you.

    Hi! I enjoyed your blog on math. I hated math growing up too. When I entered the world of Montessori education as a young adult I realized how much more exciting math can be for kids. Your daughter's a lucky girl. : )

    Hello Kristina,

    I just joined this group in order to meet people in NY. I am not sure how this forum works and hope it is okay to reach out to you. I am looking to meet people specifically in the Malta area. I am also looking for people that can help me as I transition from the relaxed homeschooling I am used to in Texas to the more involved paperwork and such that I will have to participate in while living in New York. Would you be able to point me in the direction to find yahoo groups that may work for me? I really appreciate any help in this area. Thank you, Laura-mama to two boys (9&7)

Secular Activities for Teaching Pre-History

by kristinabrooke on 08-26-2013 at 06:05 PM

Pre-History is the study of the world before there was written language/documentation. By its most basic definition, it is secular Ė although I have seen some religious bloggers use religion to teach PreHistory. However, because we teach from an evolutionary point of view, it was important that not only do we focus on Pre-History for a full year, but that we combine it with much of what is the foundation

Our First Grade Workbox System

by kristinabrooke on 09-09-2012 at 12:35 AM
Iíve mentioned before that my daughter loves schedules. She likes to know what is going to happen and she likes to check off a ďTo Do List.Ē My husband likes schedules too and gets pretty flustered if I change up our plans last minute. Iím a slave to schedules as well, but have always approached them with an attitude of flexibility. My daughter and my husband donít share this love of flexibility with me at all. So, when preparing for the upcoming school year, I decided to give Sue Patrickís Workbox System

Kindergarten in Review

by kristinabrooke on 06-02-2012 at 05:49 PM
So we are finishing up on Kindergarten and itís been a very full year! Below you will find mini reviews about the resources that we used this year. What would I have done differently?

  1. Not over plan. I went crazy thinking that I would not have enough materials to cover the whole year, but my worry-wort tendencies just caused me to become overwhelmed thinking about what we had to complete. I am so over that now!
  2. Check things sooner rather than later if they are not working.

Back At It: UPDATED Kindergarten Curriculum 2011-2012

by kristinabrooke on 09-26-2011 at 04:59 PM
After deciding to halt the Kindergarten progress back in July because we were just not ready (the beauty of homeschooling), we dove in this past week and have made so much progress. Our day is pretty much outlined here, but we are flexible. This week has proven that while daunting on paper, our schedule is doable on most days!

Truthfully, we did not start out too well. The Tornado was reluctant and defiant at the beginning of the week. I am still in awe of how independent and stubborn
