Freebies for Homeschoolers

I had the opportunity of homeschooling my 3 children before they went to a community school. Until now, I have stayed in touch through newsletter subscription to these websites and resources that have helped me in homeschooling my kids. I just want to share some of the freebies for homeschoolers which I think can help moms or dads fulfill this endeavor.

Free eBook From CLASS Homeschools!
CLASS (Christian Liberty Academy School System) is the homeschool system wherein I enrolled my children as homeschool students and got the curriculum from. I definitely recommend them for providing quality, Bible-based curriculum and excellent support.

They are giving a free eBook titled Training Children in Godliness. This book provides parents and other adults insight  on child training in Christian values. This book can give more understanding on the aspect for guiding children in the path of righteousness. I have read a hardcopy of this eBook.  If you want to get a free copy of this eBook, just like CLASS Facebook Fan page. They are also planning to give a free eBook from time to time to anyone who "Likes" their fan page.

Free homeschool curriculum Spelling course
Teaching the children how to properly spell words needs a system. I like the books on Spelling included in my children's CLASS curriculum. It is very systematic and I think it really helped prepare them to spell words right.  Anyway, that is not free (but you can check out the Spelling book for Grade 1 here, it's only $8). But if you want some free Spelling course, you can find one here.

Free homeschool curriculum for teaching kids about Health
A curriculum teaching specifically about health was not included in the CLASS curriculum when I was teaching my children. But I found this site called KidsHealth in the Classroom. It offers free kid's health guide and materials from preschool to Grade 12 on a variety of subject areas under the topic of health. Each Teacher's Guide includes discussion questions, activities, and reproducible handouts and quizzes – all aligned to national health education standards. Sign-up for their newsletter and they will update you with their latest teacher's guide like this Healthy Snacking guide I received in my inbox.

I hope these resources would be helpful to you. Have a blessed day!

I wish I had the patience and organization skills for homeschooling. I wouldn't know where to begin.

Homeschooling is a concept which is foreign to me, Chin, and frankly, I cannot imagine -- still in awe really -- that you've managed to homeschool your kids, work on freelance projects and update your blogs. Wow! You're super :)

It really takes a lot of patience to homeschool kids, Vickie.

Teecup, I actually homeschooled my kids way back when I still haven't done any freelance projects, though I was already beginning to blog then.

Keri, thanks for sharing the link to Spelling city. I'll also check it out.

God bless you all.

Never have any idea about home schooling. I think this is mostly what is being practiced by those who are staying in another country. Is it recognized in the Philippines. Glad that they have such kind of programs.

Glad to be here again!

just read the first comment, congratulations!!!

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from http://health.vic.gov.au/headlice/ When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
