Teach By Example: Challenge Accepted!

My friend Linda over at Homeschooling 6 issued a challenge for moms, to Teach by Example. For the next 6 weeks she has challenged us to learn along side our children! She explains the challenge more in depth here.

Here is my versions and what I will be doing for the next 6 weeks:

I usually use The Thinking Tree's Busy Mom's Homeschooling Handbook. I love my journal. However, some of the fun of this challenge is using a child's journal. 
I have a PDF journal and decided to print a copy for myself!

You can order a PDF version, get a sample, or order your favorite on Amazon!

Next, Pick books. You can use any books that you want. I am going to pick some for myself and a couple with my children so that we learn together. 
Here are the books that I chose for personal learning:

I am choosing to do the missionary study with my kiddos, work through some Dyslexia Games worksheets, and we are going to watch our documentaries together. I am sure throughout the weeks there will be other subjects that we tackle together. In fact, I am hoping so!

Since our method is fun-schooling, that is exactly what I will be doing to join them! Cooking, science experiments, hands-on math, gardening, Legos, board games, the list is really endless.

I am so excited about this journey. You can join us too! You don't have to use The Thinking Tree. Just join your kids whatever your school style. Jump in! Learn beside them! My kids are getting quite a kick out of me saying that I have to do my school too! They love me sitting beside them with my journal and coloring with them.

Of course, I will be linking up with Linda every Monday! You can join us too. I would love to read how you choose to learn along side your kids.


  1. We are reading that book Who Was Claude Monet this week! I love this series!! Have fun learning, Mama!

    1. I really want to read it. I haven't made time this week. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This post made me smile. I'm sorry I didn't drop by your blog sooner. With the convention and all, well I'm barely getting back into things :) Next Monday I'll start the Link-Up, hopefully by then more mamas will join in.

    I might add in the Math Genius book and the Vocabulary one too!

    1. I love the looks of Math Genius. I might try that one too! Right now I'm obsessed with the DG. They are great as a calm down activity for me!

    2. Me too, I love DG. I completed Level C and part of B. I want to do A too, lol.
