Trish is one of the owners of Hip Homeschool Moms. She has been married to her best friend, David, for 22 years and they have three sons (ages 19, 17 and 15). Trish is from the coast of North Carolina, but they now live in rural West Tennessee on a 40+ acre farm. She has been homeschooling since 2009 and her homeschool style leans towards a Montessori approach with a heavy emphasis on hands-on learning. Trish’s family is Messianic and they love studying the Scriptures, learning Hebrew and growing in their faith and walk daily. In her spare time, Trish loves to travel, write, work in their garden and can regularly be found trying to learn something new, modeling that learning is indeed a life-long endeavor!
Saxon Math Homeschool teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.
Lessons contain a warm-up (with facts practice, mental math, & problem-solving exercises); introduction to the new concept, lesson practice exercises where the new skill is practiced, and mixed practice exercises, which includes 25-30 old and new problems. In-depth “Investigations” are provided every 10 lessons, and have their own set of questions.
ArtAchieve believes that anyone can learn to draw, and that learning to draw is an essential skill.
Drawing is not a skill reserved for special people who have “talent.” Drawing is a skill, just like reading or math is a skill. Each lesson level builds on the skills developed in the previous level.
Our goal is to provide you and your students with an approach to drawing that insures success (e.g, the cat you draw will LOOK like a cat), while leaving plenty of room for creative interpretation (the cat you draw will be YOUR OWN unique cat).
The images for the lessons come from around the world and therefore are a visual tie to geography, history, literature, and other topics. We hope you explore those connections. Five levels are available, for grades K-12. Lessons can be purchased invidually or as a set per level.
