I just love that name, don’t you? Psycho With 6? I think we can all say that we feel a bit “psycho” at times! The name Psycho With 6, however, refers to Dr. Melanie Wilson, a homeschool psychologist turned homeschooling mother of 6. (That could make anyone a little bit psycho at first, don’t you think?!) You can check out her blog, Psycho With 6:Homeschool Sanity, and join her Psycho With 6 Facebook Group, but before you do, please check out these amazing homeschool resources…
I first found Melanie through her Homeschool Scopes group on Facebook. Though Periscope has died down a bit, you can still benefit from checking out her scopes and the Homeschool Scopes group. It’s for any of you homeschool moms who are looking for ideas, refreshment, and community. (Aren’t we all?!) Dr. Wilson is fantastic at facilitating and leading this group of homeschool moms. Her genuine and caring personality seeps through all she does. Once you get to know her, it will be obvious that anything she does will be done with excellence.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV
The first product I want to recommend from Melanie is The Organized Homeschool Life. This is the perfect time of year to get organized for your best school year yet. This book breaks organization into manageable tasks and challenges that you can do all year long. As homeschoolers, we realize that life really isn’t compartmentalized, so The Organized Homeschool Life covers a variety of topics that would benefit anyone. You can read a more thorough review of The Organized Homeschool Life here. The Organized Homeschool Life can be a life-changer!
Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV
Some of the newer products you can find at Psycho with 6 are the Grammar Galaxy Books. Grammar is often not a subject people look forward to, but it should be! These grammar activities take just 10 minutes each day. Parent teachers only need to pick up the book to read with their child, and complete short activities to reinforce what they have learned. The activities are actually active missions that will save Grammar Galaxy! Your child is the hero! Doesn’t that sound much more fun that doing a workbook?! Join the Grammar Galaxy Face Book Group for lots of great tips!
Nebula is the first book in this complete language arts series. It is designed for beginning readers, first grade and beyond. You can even use these as part of your read-aloud time.
ProtoStar is the next book in the series, designed for 3rd graders. Similar to Nebula, it is available in print or digital editions. There is quick assessment available if your child hasn’t completed Nebula and you want to make sure you are purchasing the correct level.
