Learn French as a Family with Rosetta Stone

*Disclosure: I received a free Rosetta Stone for review purposes and am being compensated for my time. I am not required to give a positive review.  As always,  I am sharing my honest opinion with you.

Learning French as a Family With Rosetta Stone

My husband’s boss is French Canadian. He flies down a couple of times a month to check on his business, and it is always so much fun to chat with him because of his lovely accent. He will sometimes pause mid-sentence to try and remember the correct English word. We thought it would be a hoot to secretly learn French as a family and surprise him!

Our original plan was to use an inexpensive program that I picked up at Costco a couple of years ago for my high schooler, as well as a free online site that she had been using. I was overjoyed when I learned that we had an opportunity to review Rosetta Stone Language for Homeschool. Now I would be able to compare the three and see if Rosetta Stone was really worth the money. [Read more…]

Daily Freebie Update

FREE Daily Homeschool Resources

Remember my Daily Freebies series back in May? The response to that was very positive. I’ve been thinking about how I want to approach sharing future freebie links because I don’t have time to put together daily freebie posts here on the blog.

I’ve decided that my Facebook page is the best way to share the fantastic free homeschool resources I find. I can’t wait for you to see the goodies I have lined up for you!

Now don’t get upset if you aren’t on Facebook, or don’t hang out there often – I have a solution for you! Scroll down this page and look for my Facebook Follow box in the sidebar on the right. It looks like this:

You can click on the daily freebie links in that box without ever visiting Facebook. I recommend bookmarking my blog so you can visit daily, or subscribe to my blog through email so you can easily click on over here and see what’s new on Facebook.

FYI – Facebook changed its algorithms for blog pages a few months ago. It now only shows the posts to a very small percentage of you at a time, so  those of you who are following me already are not seeing most of my posts in your feed. You might want to also follow the steps above to see the freebie posts.

And don’t forget about our Homeschooling through the Seasons Facebook group. That is where I link to free homeschool resources that are specific to the current season or holiday. It is a sharing group, so you are welcome to join and post your favorites also!

Please let me know if you have any questions about all of this!
