Simplify lessons in fun ways!

Evan-Moor is the perfect curriculum:

short, focused lessons that we all enjoy!

(Pssst….There is free shipping for most orders of $35+,

AND they have Homeschool Bundles to save up to 30%!

If you’ve followed me for long, you know Evan-Moor makes our homeschooling simple and fun!

And exciting news…. most Evan-Moor books are available in print OR ebook form!

Ebooks are AWESOME because:

  • They take up zero shelf space (and require no dusting – LOL!)
  • Print just the pages you want OR have the kids answer orally from seeing the pages on a screen (SUCH a time saver with reduced writing)
  • Use be used again and again with each child in your family

Want to know our top picks for each subject??

Drum roll, please……

As promised… Here’s our simple weekly homeschooling plan by subject:

**I’m including the links to ALL of our favorite curriculum resources. Please note that only the Evan-Moor ebooks are included in the 50% off ebook sale.**

Writing:

  • Conversation Journal with Mom (spiral notebook)
  • Gratitude Journal (write 1 thing a day)
  • Daily 6-Trait Writing, Grades 1-8 teaches kids how to really develop author skills. I personally recommend for Grades 3+.

Spelling:

  • Building Spelling Skills, Grades 1-6 – I just read a post about a mom raving about how well this book worked for her son, and I agree. Weekly unit, meaningful practice all based around specific phonics rules and sight words.

Math:

Science:

History/Geography:


Language Arts:

  • Language Fundamentals, Grades 1-6, for quick direct skill lesson and practice;
  •  Grammar Galaxy is a WONDERFUL story-based language arts curriculum that applies language skills in real-life situations. You know how we LOVE learning through great stories over here!

Art:

  • How to Teach Art to Children, Grades 1-6 is a complete art curriculum for elementary. While it is a colorful book, you can just print the few black and white reproducibles if you need them. This is a MUST- have book!


Thinking Skills:

Oh…. I almost forgot! If you’re into using digital resources, Evan-Moor has uploaded over 16,000 lessons from all of these books (and 600+ more) into a lesson plan library called TeacherFileBox.

With your TeacherFileBox subscription, you can access all subjects and grade levels! It is super affordable! I even partnered with them to make “how-to homeschool” videos using it! They even have a free 30 day trial!

Wondering how we fit all of this in with a toddler/preschooler underfoot?

Here’s our KISS (Keep it SUPER Simple) plan:

We complete weekly units for Math, Writing, Spelling, and Language Fundamentals in 3 days. It takes us about 2.5 hours each day.

Then, we either have “Monday Funday” or “Fun Friday” to do the child-led, story or project based lessons – Art, STEM, History/Geography, Critical Thinking and Grammar Galaxy.

Day 5 is for errands and finishing anything else that needs to be done.

I know….What about reading???

THAT is something that gets a post (or two) all one it’s own another time.
