The Learn For Your Life Story

Back in 1988, when my oldest son was almost five, I carefully researched several homeschool curriculum options (and there were fewer back then.) We purchased a highly recommended kindergarten package, and I still remember the excitement and enthusiasm when the box came.

But after several weeks of use, we were both frustrated. Tearfully, I wondered whether my child was learning disabled, I was a totally incompetent teacher, or homeschooling just wasn't for us.

The problem: I had the wrong curriculum for my child. He didn't fit "in a box." Almost no child does.

After three decades of teaching I can assure you that I have bought LOTS of curriculum and teaching resources. As a book lover I probably always will. But not all teaching resources are created equal.

Finding kid-friendly resources has become both a job and a hobby. When I could not find unit studies to meet our needs, I developed our own. And we shared our finds with others and took advantage of their recommendations for their kid's favorite books and resources.

Publishing our educational materials is a slow, work-in-progress. Combining great content with dynamic teaching strategies, then editing and revising takes time. Between teaching and delivering babies, the editing process often gets slowed down. Page by page, unit by unit we continue to publish materials that meet our mission: We hope we can accompany you on your educational journey. Meanwhile, we would love to hear from you via the Contact Us page of this website.
