Review: Famous Figures of Ancient Times

Famous Figures of Ancient Times  goes along so well with The Story of the World . I read what I have to teach that week before hand and look through Famous Figures to see if it has a project for the person being introduced in our history class. There are even little cards that have information about each person. What I really like about Famous Figures is that there are two of each person. One for the teacher and one for the stupor color and put together. Since The Story of the World does not have a lot of pictures it is helpful to put a face to the name of the person they are learning about. I use Timberdoodle’s online scheduler but I took Famous Figures off of it so that I could do it along with our history book when the people where mentioned. The only downside to this book is that it doesn’t come with those little prong pieces to join the people together. We had some leftover from a previous art kit that I used but I am sure you can get them at any art supply store or Walmart. If yo

Facebook Page: Homeschool

When I first started OneLuckeyWife it was only for the crafts that I hand make and sell. Since we started homeschooling I decided to add that into my blog as well. My Instagram will still have both the crafts I sell and our homeschool life lumped together. OneLuckeyWife has a Facebook page which has all the crafts I post pictures of. All 3 (IG, FB and blog) will post about sales and giveaways going on. Giveaways will be specific to one platform at a time. New to OneLuckeyWife is a  Facebook  page for our homeschool world. This page will have when we add a new review, fun things we do at school and milestones. OneLuckeyWife (craft/homeschool) can be reached on IG as OneLuckeyWife . OneLuckeyWife can be reached on FB as One Luckey Wife . OneLuckeyWife: Homeschool can be reached on FB as LuckeyEducationPrep .

Review: The Reading Lesson Book

Even though our daughter started reading very early (1 month before turning 3) I want to make sure she has every opportunity to become the best reader she can be. We use All About Reading as our main reading curriculum but when I saw  The Reading Lesson Book  I had to get it. I wanted to see if it would enhance what our daughter has already learned. This book has 20 lessons and each lesson has sounds and letters to learn. When a new letter is introduced the teacher page before the lesson will tell you how that letter should be pronounced. The very beginning shows the difference between a letter, word and a sentence. I like this because when a child is first learning to read they probably do not know there is a difference. They may only know that a page has a bunch of letters in it.  The book starts off with combining two letter sounds to get before moving onto sounding out a full word. I was surprised that lesson 3 has the “th” sound. The book really just has the child read “the” but

Crafts: Custom Orders

I have done many custom orders in past. If you see a pattern/item that you would really like just send me an email ( or message me on Instagram or FaceBook . I will make inquiries on if I can sell the finished piece. I am able to crochet, cross stitch, embroider and do diamond paintings/dots. Custom orders do not have an additional fee but some may require a non-refundable deposit. If you are looking to have a custom order done for a specific event/holiday then get with me sooner rather than later. I have a queue and each item I make is handmade so they take time to create. I have done some rush orders before. If you need to rush an order there will be an extra charge depending on how soon the order needs to be delivered.

Review: Deep in the Jungle Mosaics

 Art! Art! Art! We love art class. WThis time we went with  Deep in the Jungle Mosaics . It is another Djeco kit since our daughter has really enjoyed the other Djeco kits that we have gotten from Timberdoodle. We have done a mosaic arts and craft be Djeco before so our daughter knew exactly what to do with this one. Do not fret though. If your child has never done one before it will be still be easy for them to do this art kit. Djeco’s manuals are easy ti follow. It is entirely done in pictures and then you do what the pictures show. Very easy and very simple for a young child to do on their own. If you have read some of my other reviews the. You know that I like things that our daughter can do on her own. That way she can be occupied if I need to get some housework done or have to tend to little sis.  Deep in the Jungle Mosaics has 4 projects like the other Djeco kits we have done. And as always I wish they had more than 4 since our daughter loves doing arts and crafts. This particul

Review: Natural World Workshop

 A lot of people say that you can never have to many books. This is true but it is also true for art supplies and kits! Our daughters favorite subject in homeschool is art. This time we got the  Natural World Workshop  kit. It is another art kit made by Djeco. It is a water color painting arts and crafts. What I love about Djeco kits is that the manuals are super easy to follow. Everything is shown step by step on how you are supposed to do the art kit. It is perfect for kids as they can just look at the pictures in the manual and complete the craft on their own. They do not need to read anything so it is no problem to do even if your child does not know how to read yet. I love that I can get out daughter set up with a Djeco kit and get some work done while she is having fun and being productive. Natural World Workshop has 4 projects to do and as always I do wish to at it had more. The 4 boards are absolutely adorable! There is an under the sea, a desert oasis, a rainforest and a snow
