  4. I like teaching math. Of course, it was just preschool math last year. However, I really enjoyed watching my daughter learn how to use manipulatives for counting, making patterns, sorting, adding, etc. It's so great to see your child learn right in front of you!

  5. We're learning about the president's this school year, so this would be a big help. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks. My favorite subject to teach is Math. Probably because my daughter is good at math, although she personally hates it!

  7. Not a homeschooler, but I enjoy working with K- on phonics. She seems to be doing so well with them. Just today she was telling me that she'll be voting in September, even though her friend was convinced that we wouldn't be at all. Hee! Hee! All that presidential stuff last year did stick, too!

    Thank you so much!

  44. Mama Hen,

    I'm coming back to the US and would love to have some resources. My little one loves the ocean and we have NEVER studied the US Presidents because we've never lived in the US until now.

    This would be such a blessing as we don't know much about homeschool resources. Usborne sounds great!

    I love teaching absolutely everything, my favorite is creative writing.
