I am not an expert. I don’t have all of the answers. I am not attempting to tell anyone how to teach, run their lessons or homeschool in any way. I am simply a homeschooling mom with some extra time and a large collection of resources and materials that I have decided to share with whoever would like them. Like most of you, I am figuring this out as I go. I have a overwhelming need/desire to research anything and everything in great depth, and I am happy to share what I have learned and accumulated over the years. Everything is 100% FREE and will stay that way regardless of how this site grows or evolves! With that being said….

Amazon Shopping List
I want to make it very clear that I do NOT get paid to promote anything on the lists in anyway, nor does anyone I know. The products are not sent to me/friends/family to review. I have found and used/researched these on my own. I spend a significant amount of time each month on amazon searching around to find the best products to aid in our homeschool journey at the best deals! Now you can benefit from my hours of work as well! I have put together lists of teaching aids, books, kits and more that may prove useful and helpful on your homeschool journey as well! I have also put together a list of family matching clothing, shoes and accessories. Our youngest is very much into matching mom, so every spring we choose a few matching outfits and things that are always a big hit with our friends and family. Everything we have bought or simply just considered is on the list. Please note the sizes and colors displayed may not be the matching item. Also some things may say out of stock, however it may only be for the size and/or color that was selected when the item was added to the list. Click on the item to check the availability of your desired sizes/colors for sure.
AGIAN, I want to make it very clear that I do not get paid to promote anything on the lists in anyway, nor does anyone I know. The products are not sent to me/friends/family to review. I have personally researched and/or used everything on the lists above myself, (aside from the family marching products, some of those were considered and viewed but not purchased) which is why I feel comfortable recommending these items to you. If anyone finds a recalled or poorly reviewed product on the list that I may have somehow missed PLEASE contact me and let me know! I hope you find these list and their contents as useful, helpful, and fun as we have! If there’s a type of shopping list you’d like to see created please feel free to send me the request and I will do my best to set it up asap! Enjoy and happy teaching!
I receive a lot of questions about how to get all of the worksheets to print full page. Being tech challenged myself, I feel your pain. I have made a quick video on the best way I have found to print the sizes I want every time! If you have any further issues or questions please feel free to contact me. Check out the rest of the HHD videos and educational playlist on the Playlist & Video page or on the HHD YouTube channel.
Big Kids Club summery; click the link to find out more and sign up: In this club we read the books BEFORE the weekly meetings, then discuss them and play book trivia. Most books will be sent to you for FREE, either in text form, or audio! We also spend time working on social skills by playing games, doing crafts together (for those that want to participate in that), and free discussion time. The age range is just a suggestion. Older and/or younger children are welcome if you think they would enjoy it and be able to participate properly.
Little Readers Club summery; click the link to find out more and sign up: In this club we read the books together during the weekly meetings, taking turns reading for those that choose to.
