Leann is a homeschooling mama of an over-active 6 year old, proud wife of a cop, and pet lover of their two dogs, frogs, turtles – and cricket. Her blog, The Hands-On Homeschooler, chronicles their homeschooling journey, while throwing in tidbits about life, reviews, and recipes. Prior to being a stay-at-home mom, Leann taught math at a public high school for high achieving students. She and her family currently reside in the middle Tennessee area.
Life of Fred is a complete math program that relies upon the self-teaching learning style many homeschoolers love. The texts follow the life of Fred Gauss—a six-year-old math professor at Kittens University who was born on the slopes of the Siberian Mountains—who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures. Informal in tone and approach, these books are designed to engage students in a fun narrative while also instilling a solid understanding of the principles of mathematics–without an abundance of repetitive drills!
The program is structured in different courses that cover multiple grades:
Elementary and intermediate books for 1st-5th grade A “Before High School Mathematics” series that features arithmetic & pre-algebra books for late elementary and middle school A four-year high school course A set of university-level textbooks
Nothing engages a child in the learning experience like hands-on activities! History should never be a boring subject – there’s far too much of it to enjoy! Travel the world, step back to days of old, become the heroes and heroines of the eras, and witness God’s providence woven throughout it! By being grounded in the “when” and “where” that timelines and maps provide, and living the history through hands-on activities, 3-dimensional projects, drama, cooking, living books and more, your child will be transported to a whole new world and experience the events and meet the amazing people who carved the paths we walk today! The materials we develop at Home School in the Woods are designed to do just that!
