Bananas and Monkeys Original source unknown. (But the story appears to have some basis in fact.) Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Now, put away the cold water. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. And that, my friends, is how company policies are made.

Progressive Phonics - "Dolch" words To succeed in school, your child needs to be able to read 220 vitally important, high-frequency words---words like I, and, go, what, are, etc., which are "connecting" words that give sentences their meaning. These 220 words were identified by Edward William Dolch PhD. in 1948. Dr. Dolch’s theory was that if children could read these words rapidly and without conscious effort, they would be well on their way to becoming good readers For example, the blue words in the following sentence are all “Dolch” words: The dog ran after the cat, but the cat got away. - 87% - Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. (List compiled by - and available at - And not just children's books. Many schools in the United States recognize the Dolch high-frequency word lists as a VITAL step in creating a good reader. We think that is a little bit steep. And that pays off in terms of literacy and fluency.

Mom In a Crisis Let Go Bless you for stopping by. Would you please share this post using the buttons above? Please note: this post may contain affiliate links. Dear Mom in a crisis, I’m talking to you today. Yes, you. I know, I’ve been there. I used to think, if I don’t talk about it, think about it, pray about it, it will just go away. But, it doesn’t It’s there, bigger than life, like a big elephant in the middle of the room. It threatens every conversation, every smile, every.single.moment.of.peace and it wakes you up in the middle of the night – you, there in a puddle of cold sweat. Today, I want you to know. As a mother who has experienced devastation in my own home, witnessing the impact on my own children, I have slowly, but found the truth of the matter – I can not control the actions of another person. I have learned to let it go and truly let God. I have learned to love and be loved. It’s up to God to open their eyes and ears and it’s also up to Him to open their hearts to His truth.

The Key to Successful Homeschool  - Home - Homegrown Learners The key to accomplishing A LOT in your homeschool is actually staying HOME. When my children were younger we were always on the go - fun field trips, park days, and getting out "just because". Now that Anna is in 7th grade, the work is getting HARD (more on her Challenge program in the next few weeks!) and we must stay home the majority of our time to give this beautiful program the justice it deserves. *This post contains affiliate links. This week we spent A LOT of time at home. Confession: Staying home is hard for me. And, to be honest, it used to seem like a "sacrifice" to me, but now it's just what we do, and wouldn't trade it for anything. Here's what our week looked like: Anna - Challenge A Anna's days are quite structured, but the Challenge A program allows for HER to design and maintain that structure. Basically, she has six "subjects" she is studying this year: Math, Latin, Rhetoric, Geography, Science, and Writing. 1. 2. 3. 4. Grant - Foundations at Home Work 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
