Motivated Moms Planner Founding Members Last Call



*this post does contain affiliate links

Motivated Moms is now offering a wonderful new option in their planner system!  This is the simple chore system that I have loved for years.  This time they are offering a founding membership as there planners are being tweaked.  

Here's what a founding membership includes:

  • An annual membership at only $9/year.
  • As long as you remain a member in good standing you will be locked into this price going forward.
  • You'll immediately have access to ALL versions of the Motivated Moms printables inside the membership. Click here to see samples of all the versions. The 2019 planners are all inside right now!
  • An app for iOS and Android is currently in development. When it is ready, you will have access to the app at no extra charge!  You will also be involved in the development process - you'll be asked for feedback during this time. 
This offer ends January 7, 2019, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time!


If you are unfamiliar with Motivated Moms, it is a wonderful little tool to help you stay on top of your cleaning tasks by breaking them down into little bite size chunks each day. It includes daily, weekly, monthly, and even annual tasks. I've been using this tool for years!  It is so simple.  


Disclaimer:  You will have to actually do the work.  If only there were a planner design that did it for you!!  Until then, I think you'll find this one is great!  No more forgotten air vent changes and more importantly no need to try to remember when you last did it!

2017-2018 9th Grade Curriculum Choices| Hands On Learning


**This post contains affiliate links.**

Here are the remainder of our 9th grade curriculum choices.  You can click on the links or pictures for more information or to purchase.  Here is a video with a little sneak peak into some!



For Algebra 1, we are sticking with Teaching Textbooks.

For this year's science choice, we decided to go with Exploring Education Advanced Physical Science which is a new curriculum to us and we love the hands on experiments it includes.  I really loved the fact that it comes with most of the supplies!




For English I credit, we are continuing with Logic of English, adding in another new curriculum in writing, Essentials In Writing - Level 9, and she will be reading through the Anne of Greene Gables Series.







To aid in making history a little more hands on we have decided to add this supplemental CD which includes printable challenge (review) cards, notebooking pages, coloring sheets, and lapbook accessories. Sarah loves to craft and color.  These sheets are very detail oriented and not your typical elementary age coloring sheet which is so perfect for her!


We're putting together our own Home Economics course using the subscription boxes from Raddish Kids.  We will be counting hours to obtain this credit and I'm adding in a few extras to go along with it such as budgeting for her ingredient list.  

She is working on Spanish using the free online program from Duolingo

Check out our Bible, History, Read Alouds, and Geography choices here.

Looking forward to a fun year!

2017-2018 Homeschool High School Curriculum Choices | 9th & 11th Grades | Bible, History, Geography, & Read Alouds


**This post does contain affiliate links**

Finally, I am going to share with you our choices for the 2017-2018 school year.  We have 2 high schoolers this year - one in 9th, and one in 11th.  We have decided to work together in the subjects of History, Bible, & Geography so I'll start there.

We are studying Ancient History this year and chose Mystery of History Volume 1 - Creation to the Resurrection to be our main spine.  It has some map work in it as well so we picked up a few atlases to go along with it.  (click on the pictures to purchase or see more)


                             

We are also using Simply Charlotte Mason's one year course in Ancient History, Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt to complement our history studies and as our main Bible spine.  Geography will be pulled from both of these books as well as a few atlases and living books listed below.


                                                 

                                           


                                          



For read alouds this year, I chose some from both Mystery of History and Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt.  Here is what I chose:

         



                                           


                      

Coming up soon...9th grade individual choices and 11th grade individual choices!
