My Mission for Improving Our Homeschool Language Arts

“Mom, I wish I was a better writer!”

My mama heart nearly broke when my youngest (Xman – age 8) came to me with this plea.

Writing has been a thorn in my side since we started our homeschool adventures over 10 years ago. Although I adore writing, it’s been a major struggle for me to teach my 5 boys to love and appreciate the process.

I’ve researched, tried, and tossed out more homeschool writing curricula than I care to admit. Part of the issue is that each of my boys have needed different programs. The other part of the issue is that I simply haven’t devoted enough time to the subject in our homeschool.

Sure, we do a bunch of writing in our other subjects, like history, geography, and science.

But, I realize that I’ve relied too much on the “sponge effect” in our homeschool when it comes to writing. Xman’s older brothers just kind of naturally picked up on writing through other subjects. For Xman, it’s different. And that’s totally okay 😊

I became a mama on a mission to find the best way to help my baby (he’d cringe at that so let’s go with youngest) enjoy an approach to writing (and overall language arts) that helps him feel like a better writer.

My Criteria for Language Arts Resources in Our Homeschool

As I began my research for finding ways to help my youngest improve his writing (and overall language arts education), I knew that I needed to keep these things in mind:

  • Open-and-go: I do NOT have a ton of time to be pouring over teacher manuals or prepping lessons.
  • Easy-to-use: And I also wanted something that Xman could start to use on his own for independent learning.
  • Affordable: Our homeschool budget is not huge so I needed resources that helped us get more bang for our buck 😉
  • Engaging: Xman needed to be willing to work on these lessons and not be turned off.
  • Focused: There is the potential for a lot of distractions in our homeschool. Brothers working on projects. Online lessons being read-aloud. Dog barking at the mail person or a leaf blowing across our yard. Simple, black-and-white pages work best for Xman.
  • Short-and-sweet: I’m not a big fan of busy work. And I prefer to have a resource that’s effective and doesn’t cause an outburst.

Why I Chose Evan-Moor Workbooks for Boosting Our Homeschool Adventures

After a bit of online research and asking around in Facebook groups, I discovered resources from Evan-Moor that would work with our budget AND boost our learning fun.

I was delighted to discover that Evan-Moor has a variety of resources to use for homeschool language arts. In fact, I wasn’t quite sure where to start or what to pick. I reached out via email to get a bit of direction and was so glad I did.

The Evan-Moor associate was extremely helpful in helping me narrow down my choices and find resources that would work for my son.

I decided to go with the print versions of workbooks. PDF looked appealing but I knew that I would only be using these resources with my youngest so I didn’t really need the option to print more. (For grades 4-8, I will definitely be going with PDF because I can use with multiple ages in our homeschool!).

Evan-Moor flashcards and worbooks

Also, I wanted Xman to have a special experience of having his very own workbooks. As the youngest, he gets many things passed down – including homeschool stuff – so having something of his own makes it extra special 🙂

Oh, you may be wondering what Xman is using for his 3rd grade learning adventures with Evan-Moor workbooks! He’ll be enjoying:

Xman dove right into the Spelling Skills workbook. He’s had a blast with the spelling lists and exercises. I was pleasantly surprised that he’s looked forward to the Dictations Sentences to practice his weekly spelling words.!

I wanted to ease into our experience with Evan-Moor workbooks in our homeschool. Now that he feels so comfortable with the spelling work (an area that he was struggling with), he has started Daily Writing and Language Fundamentals. So far, Xman has been all smiles 🙌

    1. Fantastic question! For my youngest, he’s wrapping up the red level of Learning Language Arts Through Literature and using Evan-Moor workbooks. He’ll start Evan-Moor reading comprehension soon. We also enjoy silent reading time each day where he picks a variety of books. I hope that answers your question. We have a relaxed approach to homeschooling 🙂
