Write-On Handwriting

Powerful Printing & Conquering Cursive are student-guided, multi-sensory, fun-to-use computer software programs. All students can learn to write fluently and legibly. Using a computer mouse – the modern-day equivalent to writing in the air or on the chalkboard – students learn correct letter patterns. Writing letters the same way every time builds the motor memory needed to reproduce letters using the finer coordination required with a pencil. Kids learn to write so they can write to learn! Instruction is customized for right-handed and left-handed kids!

Available in print (Powerful Printing) or cursive (Conquering Cursive) versions as a printed product, pdf, software, or app.

Dill Pickles, Hedgehogs, & Lemon Trees: Unexpected Keys to Supporting Kids with ADHD

I grew up in the denim jumpers and homemade bread era of homeschooling and wanted nothing more than to be like all the other cool kids who got to eat bologna sandwiches and wear jeans. As a second generation homeschooler, I came to the table with more than my fair share of things I was […]

An In-Real-Life Look at Unschooling

If you know me very well at all, you might be a bit perplexed to hear me say that we are unschoolers. I am very much a rule follower, and unschooling pretty much breaks all the rules. At least, this learning style breaks the ‘shoulds’ mold that I have created for myself over the years. […]
