Confessions of a Homeschooler

Confessions of a Homeschooler is a homeschooling blog dedicated to encouraging homeschooling families by offering resources, ideas, curriculum, organization tips and more!

PRIZE CHOICE #1:
Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World

Get ready for an exciting voyage across the world! Come along as we walk on the Great Wall of China, wander through the Amazon Rainforest, and climb the Egyptian Pyramids! Within this curriculum you’ll discover the sights and sounds of 31 countries across the globe. You’ll get hands-on with fun activities, crafts, recipes and more! So grab your passports, and get ready to go! It’s time for Expedition Earth!

PRIZE CHOICE #2:
World’s Greatest Composers Study Volume 1 & Volume 2

The goal behind the World’s Greatest Composers curriculum is to immerse students in the work of each composer so that they are well familiar with their style, methods and music. Much of your time studying will be through open discussion with students and listening to compositions. Upon completion of this curriculum, your student should be able to easily recognize the pieces from each composer studied. They will also have learned several different styles of music, vocabulary, as well as have gained an appreciation for music in general.

PRIZE CHOICE #3:
Scientist & Inventors Combo Pack

This series is all about famous Scientists & Inventors! As usual each study includes fun hands-on activities to go along with the unit to help students remember what they’ve learned, and also provide them with a fun reference too to review and recall each person they’ve learned about.

  1. Jenn Gillies says

    I would LOVE to win the Great Composers it is the one area in our homeschool curriculum that I feel extremely lacking in even where to begin. Thanks! :)

  2. Patti wykoff says

    I would LOVE to receive Expedition Earth b/c too many geography curricula are dry and Iwantmy children to *experience* the country while they learn about it.

  3. Sarah says

    I bet my kids would love the scientists and inventors pack. Husband and I are both engineers and my kids seem to have the same gene!

  4. Nikki says

    Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World Would be absolutely amazing to win!!!
    Thank you for this contest and an oppurtunity to win such great prizes!!

  5. Karen Martin says

    Hard to decide! Considering the ages of my children, Expedition Earth looks like a good fit!! Would love to win for my birthday!

  6. Amanda C says

    Love the chance to win the lifetime notebooking pages and also Expedition Earth (the one we would choose). I am just starting to look for a beginning Geography curriculum so this combo would be perfect for us!

  7. Therese A says

    We would LOVE to win the Expedition Earth and my kids would love the journey especially learning about the children, animals and food for each place in the world.

  8. Mrs.Momof6 says

    I would LOVE to win this prize!! This is a tight budget year, and I know that this would really put some cream back into the basics! If I win, I’d put to good use the Composers Studies! We love to study musicians, but I often don’t have enough material to go into detail! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  9. Allenna says

    I love notebooking! This would be a great prize. As far as the extras, I love them all. It’s hard to choose one. I guess the Scientists would be great. I have a little boy coming along. He’d probably love to look at the inventors and get ideas.

  10. Anna says

    I am most excited about the opportunity to win a Notebookingpages.com Lifetime Membership!! The Expedition Earth package looks like a wonderful addition to our core curriculum. Thank you for your generosity!

  11. Brooke says

    Would enjoy winning Expedition Earth, as we are going to study Geography next school year. Love seeing all the fun activities that Confessions of a Homeschooler does with her kiddos!

  12. Ellen G says

    Wow! What a hard choice!!! They all look great and I’d love to have them all, but a choice must be made…Composers.

  13. Bobbi says

    I am new to note booking, and I am falling in love with this idea. My daughter loves to draw, I believe this approach will help her with her aversion to putting pen to paper. I would have a hard time deciding, but I am leaning towards geography.

  14. Oksana says

    Would really love any of them, all are interesting. I haven’t done notebooking but been reading about it and am really interested so this opportunity would really help out in making my final decision.

  15. LindsayPackard says

    I love Confessions of a Homeschooler! We’re going to use her LOTW curriculum for Pre-K for my youngest two! I would love to add the Composers to our curriculum. We’re starting music next year for our oldest and it would tie in really well!

  16. Shannon says

    I LOVE Confessions! I was contemplating purchasing Expedition Earth this week and would love to win it! Thank you for the opportunity! 😀

  17. Lisa Whitlock says

    I would love the Scientist & Inventors Combo Pack! My boy is enthralled with Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Isaac Newton. :)

  18. Kristina S. says

    I own most of the things Erica has made. Her curriculum is phenomenal!! I would love to win her Scientist & Inventors Combo Pack. It is the one I’ve had my eye one.

  19. Tanya says

    What a very exciting give away. The Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World looks like one my boys would love to adventure through.

  20. Sara says

    I have been making use of the free pages this year and would love to be able to afford a lifetime membership, but winning one would be even better! The journey through God’s World looks like an amazing addition to our homeschool curriculum.

  21. 3peanuts says

    It’s definitely hard to choose, but I would have to say the Lifetime membership. There just seems to be so much good stuff. I would be like a kid in a candy shop.

  22. says

    I would LOVE the lifetime membership! Oh the thought of that brings a smile to my face! And my little scientist would love the scientist and inventors pack! Thanks for the giveaway! God Bless!

  23. Jessica Sharma says

    I love all of Confessions of a Homeschooler’s curriculums, but I would really love to get the Expedition Earth. I’m new to homeschooling, and my son is still young. I’ve been trying to find an easy way to include geography into his lessons, and everytime i see this curriculum it looks great!

  24. Maren says

    I would LOVE to win the Composer’s study! I’ve wanted to add something to our Monday afternoons to make them “Musical Mondays” and this would be perfect! :)

  25. Kendra says

    I have been considering NotebookingPages Lifetime Membership. Have also seen and liked Confession’s Composers Study. WIN! WIN!

  26. Jenny says

    I would love to receive the world’s greatest composer set. I subscribe to COAH emails and I love reading about how they use it in her home. Thank you!

  27. Annie says

    Would LOVE to win the notebooking pages membership and the Scientist & Inventors Combo Pack would be a great bonus..

  28. danielle says

    I would love to have the Scientist and Inventors Combo Pack! We already use Expedition Earth and it’s wonderful! My kids love how hands-on it is.

  29. Mindy says

    I think my son would like the scientist and inventors while my oldest daughter would enjoy the composers. They all look great though. I use her Road Trip USA and it is very well done.

  30. Sally W says

    I think that my kids would like World’s Greatest Composers. We have studied artist’s and can recognize artistic styles now, so I think that it would be great to do this with music too!

  31. Jocelyn Tucker says

    I love all the options from Confessions! The music one would be great, because I know we don’t do enough with it. I would also love the geography one – I hate searching so many books from the library and really not finding anything fun.

  32. LeAnna McAllister says

    This is so exciting!! I LOVE everything I’ve seen (and done) on Confessions of a Homeschooler website. Would love to win this!

  33. Stephanie Craig says

    It’s a hard choice. They all sound good. I think I would have to say science and inventors because it’s something my boys would love

  34. Susie says

    I would love to use Expedition Earth with my 4 daughters! I would also love to win a Notebooking membership! I find it amazing that homeschool moms are able to find the time to develop such awesome resources, when I struggle to just keep up with everything at my house! How do you do it?

  35. Alice R says

    The composer one would be great! Or the Scientists and Inventors! They are all good. Plus, I love notebooking pages.

  36. Teresa says

    Definitely the Composers! For some reason I have a lot of trouble when it comes to that subject for my kiddos. It seems I always enjoy it more than them :(

  37. Amy-Lee Steele says

    I would be so appreciative of the Expedition Earth : A Journey Through God’s World! Thank you for the chance to win such a great prize.

  38. says

    As a former travel agent, I would love to win Expedition Earth : A Journey Through God’s World and give my children I taste of what I was able to experience (before kids 😉

  39. Jessica R says

    I love COAH and would really like to incorporate more notebooking into our homeschool day. The Expedition Earth package seems especially great for this!

  40. carrie h. says

    I would.love to use the World Expeditions curriculum. I have been following the blog and love what I have seen her family doing with the units.

  41. julia citerin says

    I am new to homeschooling and the notebooking resources seem to be something my daughter would love as she is an active learner!

  42. Sally says

    Scientists and Inventors would be fun for us. We haven’t focused on this subject much, so I think it would be beneficial.

  43. Eva Karcher says

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. We are new to homeschooling, and I am beyond excited to have stumbled across Notebooking Pages. Thank you for your dedication to teaching your children and then sharing it with the rest of us!

    If I had to choose it would be hard, however I think I would opt for the Composer set since that is an area that I would not be able to offer much of on my own. I would love to learn and notebook along with my children!

  44. Elizabeth S says

    Next year is going to be geography themed at our house and Expedition Earth would be perfect. Of course who can’t use another science curriculum? I give up. They all look great!

  45. Bridgett says

    I would LOVE the Expedition Earth pack and I think my kiddos would really enjoy it as well. Thanks for the opportunity.

  46. says

    I would love to win this for my daughter. She is called to be a missionary and loves to learn about other countries. Thank you for the chance to win.

  47. mamapizzazz315 says

    Super excited about this give away! I’d love any of them, but I think my kiddo would like Expedition Earth. :)

  48. Megan says

    I would love to win the Worlds Greatest Composers because I would like to know more about them. I can than teach my kids about them as we listen to their music. I love listening to classical a lot.

  49. Beth says

    I am interested in the Composers resources. I am very interested in incorporating some music studies into our day. This would be ideal.

  50. bossydsmom says

    What at great promotion! I would love to have the Scientist and Inventors combo pack. Science is so difficult for me to teach, what a great resource this would be :-)

  51. says

    I would be happy to win any of them as they all look amazing! But the one that would be the most need in our homeschool is the Scientist & Inventors Combo Pack so that is the one I would end up picking. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  52. Carrie Sue says

    Became interested in Notebooking after purchasing the Expedition Earth and the girls had such fun with it. Would love to win either the Composers Pack or the Scientists and Inventors – and the Notebooking prize too! Greedy not much. Good luck to all!

  53. Michele Knepp says

    Getting ready to start Orchestra in Classical Conversations Cycle 2 and I would love the Composers unit to supplement. In reality I’d love them all because anything Erica does is the BEST!

  54. Allyson C says

    That’s a tough choice. Either the Scientists/Inventors or the Great Composers. My boys love science, so that may win.

  55. sunnid says

    I would love to win the Composers study – this is something that I am not naturally strong it, and would love to have the help!

  56. Elizabeth says

    I would love to win any of them! However, I have already purchased all of them. We LOVE Confessions of a Homeschooler in our home. We use something from the Confessions site almost every day.

  57. Audrey Thomas says

    I would really love to win the World’s Greatest Composers Study Volume 1 & Volume 2. I have been interested in it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  58. Melanie says

    These are SO AMAZING!!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win these. I’m all about Art and Science, so the Composers, Inventors and Science especially appeal to me and my daughter. Thanks, again!

  59. JenL says

    I would like to win Expedition Earth or the Inventors. They have both been on my watch list. Thank you for the giveaway.

  60. Leanne L says

    All of the COAH downloads look fabulous. I think I’d choose the Inventors one, as I have a son who is currently fascinated with inventing.

  61. Constance says

    What an awesome giveaway! Thank you, ladies. I like the geography book, Expedition Earth: A Journey through God’s World. It would be a great way to make a subject that’s dull and boring to my boys, more interesting and fun!

  62. Kimberly Juroviesky says

    Really grateful for all your hard work! I wanted to let you know how much your efforts are appreciated.

  63. Kathy G says

    I would love to win any of these great prizes. If I had to choose, it would be prize #2 because we love music and this would be a great addition to our homeschool education. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  64. Joy says

    All three look great, but #2 (Great Composers) is my top choice because that is an area I haven’t spent as much time on with my kids. I would like to see them gain knowledge of the composers, their lives, music, and the time period they lived in.

  65. Val says

    We would love to win the Expedition Earth. We are doing Confessions of a Homeschooler’s Road Trip USA now and would love to move right on to the Expedition Earth when we are finished. Thanks.

Nature Study – The Old Schoolhouse Review

Product: Nature Study Pages

Wow! Notebookers and Charlotte Mason fans pay attention! Here is a great resource for you. And for those who don't fit the above descriptions, you may very well like this, too. I think everyone from unschoolers to the classically minded could make good use of this nature-journal facilitating software. The first part of this computer CD contains a slew of nature notebooking pages. At the beginning there is a Nature Study Notebook Cover and suggestions for using the pages themselves, which are categorized in eight sections.

First comes the "7 Days of Creation," with several templates for journaling and illustrating. All of the pages that have writing space include pages with primary-style lines (with a dotted line between two solid lines) and pages with standard lines for older students.

Next is "All about Animals," which has six sub-sections: Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Invertebrates, Mammals, and Reptiles. Among the myriad options, there is a page for drawing animal tracks, an "observation jar" page for drawing little captive creatures, and lifecycle pages. The spider page has a place for sketching the web, and there is an arthropod page with a sectioned template for drawing the head, thorax, and abdomen. A nice feature found here and in the plant section is a "word bank" where specific terms are printed at the bottom of the page for student reference--good for building vocabulary and spelling skills.

The "Habitat" chapter is most comprehensive: arctic, beach, creek and pond, desert, forest, jungle, mountains, plains, prairie, rain forest, streams and rivers, rotting logs, savannah, sea and ocean, under a rock, underground, and yard. I especially like the last one, as that is a familiar and convenient habitat for children to explore! Rotting logs and under a rock sound like fun too.

The "Nature Log and Journaling Pages" are lined with "date," location," and "notes" column headings. There is a generic page and one for each season as well as various template pages with space for writing and drawing.

"Plants, Flowers, and Trees" come next. The flower pages have places for leaf and flower/petal detail. The tree pages have spaces to illustrate the bark, leaves/needles, and the flowers/fruit/nuts/cones. There is also a place for bark rubbings.

The last three sections are "Rocks and Minerals," which includes igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks as well as minerals; "Seasons"; and "Weather," with all kinds of daily, weekly, and monthly weather logs among other things. There is even a page for the water cycle.

Each section contains a cover page for separating each category and organizing your nature notebook. The template pages are most attractive, with beautiful illustrations and pleasing layout.

At the end of this Nature Notebooking half of the CD is a bonus section. It is an amazing assortment of nature-themed fun frames and borders. These could be used as additions to your children's nature journal or would be perfect for letter-writing or stories. The author also suggests using them for copywork and dictation. There are rainbows, birds, flowers, leaves, seashells, snowflakes, frogs, and butterflies to name a few. Some are black and white, most are in color and range from quaint to "cartoon-y" in style. In general, they lean toward "girly" in their appeal.

Whew! Okay, so now comes the second half of the CD, which is North American Birds Notebooking Pages. There are 680 notebook pages for 97 types of birds, and there are blank templates for adding other birds. Again, you will find both primary and regular-style line options for all the pages that have journaling space. Seven different page templates are available for each bird. Some are full-page illustrations for coloring. Where it applies, male and female species are shown. Many of the pages have a space for the common and scientific name. One template has a range map printed on it.

We usually school year-round, trying to plug in some fun stuff in the summer months along with the usual catch-up. I've added "Nature Notebooking" to my summer to-do list, and the kids are 100% behind me. I will also make sure we take pertinent pages (animals, habitats, birds, frames, and borders) with us on our family vacations from now on!
