Spelling Classroom .comI’ve been blogging and posting on social media about our homeschool experience just in case someone else is going through the same thing and in the chance that someone can even offer advice.

We started our wonderful homeschool adventure in November 2016 and it has been a learning experience.  I had to find what works for and what doesn’t work for us.  I’ve found programs we love and programs that didn’t work for the girls which required me to find another program to replace it with.

We use Spelling Workout for both girls and I love the workbooks they use weekly for a new lesson however they didn’t have the word definitions with each lesson so the girls could learn that too.  I didn’t want them to have to look up twenty plus words a week in the dictionary because it would have taken them ALL day to do that.

So I started looking around online for a program that allowed the girls to enter their weekly spelling list from their Spelling Workout workbooks that told the girls the definitions.  A lot of programs I found online have pre-made lists and activities that allow you to learn the words that way but I wanted a program where the girls could enter their own words.

BINGO!!!  FOUND ONE!!!!!!  I have bragged and bragged about this program because it’s perfect.

Spelling Classroom is amazing for any child who needs an extra boost with spelling and learning definitions.  You can enter your own words or use one of their preloaded lists.  Once your child enters their spelling list or use one of Spelling Classrooms then they can do different activities that help them learn their words.

Supermom Reviews
This is where I post all the links of products that have been sent to me.

I must deeply apologize to those companies that have sent me a product but I didn't get around to posting a review on this blog The Adventures of Supermom®.  All I can say is things got super busy, laptop being dead for months - coming back to life only to DIE A SLOW PAINFUL death after a month making me lose everything {yes, everything}, getting a job outside the house at a bowling alley {where I met amazing people that are now friends}, WRIST SURGERY where I was in a cast for 6 weeks and then a brace, then pulling our kids out of their private Montessori school so I could homeschool them.

Summer vacation.  Bad back.  Yadda yadda yadda.

Or is that yada yada yada??


I have been wanting to just make a list with links so you could check these wonderful companies out.  Tell them Supermom sent ya.  {insert big smile here}

* Element Snacks

They sent an assortment of delicious rice cakes.  Gluten free. Non GMO, No artificial ingredients.

They are the perfect treat and come in so many different flavors for every craving.

Homeschool ~ 9 Weeks {Not for the timid and weak.}

Michelle Lee at The Adventures of Supermom

We've done it!!!!!   We've been homeschooling for 9 weeks {tomorrow}.  After tomorrow we will have 9 days off.  Woot woot.  We are trying the 3 weeks on 1 week off schedule right now. 

It's been an adventure for sure.  We have learned what works for us and what we needed to change because it did not work for us.

Homeschool is not for the weak!!  I've had to drag myself out of bed on a few mornings for school and even make myself finish school after our lunch break!  I even had to teach recovering from wrist surgery.  While sick!  I thought stay at home parents didn't get any rest.  I was totally wrong.  Stay at home parents that homeschool their kids get ZERO ZERO ZERO rest.  ZEROOOOO!

Thankfully Superdad took on making dinner at night for me.  I cook every once in awhile but he mostly holds the fort down.  {Without feeding them cold cereal or almond butter sandwiches every night.}  I don't know how he does it.  I'd sprinkle some cereal on the dining room table myself.  Ha ha.  I'm joking....sort of...

I know that everyone who homeschools has a different schedule and what may work for someone may not for the next person that comes around.  Thankfully I have The Well-Trained Mind book to look back on for reference and a couple Facebook groups and some great FB friends to bother when I want to ask a question.

Real quick I thought I'd share my schedule because I am always being asked.

Library Book Find
{A beautiful French book. Le Bandeau by Félicien Hampsaur}

Superdad started it!

Buying used books at the library for a DEAL!  A buck for hardcover and fifty cents for a paperback.

Told you it was a deal.

So every once in awhile I scope out the books and I have found some amazing ones!  I don’t even mind if I cannot read them because they are in another language.

This little French beauty has tickled me pink.  I love it!  LOVE IT!  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

It was written in 1916 by Félicien Hampsaur and it includes the most beautiful pictures in it.  Nude pics.  Beautiful nude pics.  Drawn pictures not nude photographs.  That’s what makes it extra special to me.

I thought I shouldn’t keep it all to myself so I wanted to share a few pictures with you.
