We have been a homeschooling family for one year now. I can audibly breathe a sigh of relief that we made it to a year. Better yet, we are going to keep going. Hurray!
As any homeschooling family knows, teaching your children at home is not an easy job. I’ve made many mistakes and continue to learn as I go. I am always on the lookout for additional resources I can use to supplement our core curriculum. My kids need fun ways to learn that they can do on their own. The HEV Project is a great resource for parents looking for an additional resource for learning. They have made short videos on a variety of topics that instruct children on that topic. After watching the video, there are activities they can do to further enhance what they have learned. The topics range from science to art to chess to geography and more. They continue to add videos to the site.
My oldest son spent a lot of time exploring the videos available. He enjoyed them all but the one he loved the most was chess. There are a number of brief videos on chess, taking the viewer step by step through the entire game. From learning the basic pieces to learning challenging strategies, it’s all there. I’d never seen my son so inspired to try out everything he had learned!
In addition, the site also offers book reviews, contests, and (soon) forums for speech and writing.
The HEV Project offers many payment options, allowing you to pay what you can afford to pay. They understand the financial burden homeschooling can be for families. If one of the financial plans does not fit your budget, they encourage you to contact them directly to arrange a plan.
