9/25/17: CLASS UPDATE: We wanted to share with you news about the ending of one of our longest-running classes, Art Techniques, as well as news about a new art class that will take its place. Brenda Ellis has been with us since February, 2013. After nearly 5 years, she’s decided it’s time for her class, Art Techniques, to end. As of December 31, 2017, these lessons will NO LONGER be available for download from our site. If you are using this class in your homeschool this year, please be sure to download the lessons prior to this time. We will be launching a new art class to fill this spot in January, 2018. Our new art class will include teaching on a range of techniques including sketching, painting, pointillism, mosaics, and paper and cardboard art, as well as explore mediums such as colored pencils, water colors, cardboard, pencils, markers, oil pastels, and paper. Instructional videos will be included in selected lessons. We know you’ll love it, and appreciate the dozens of lessons Brenda has shared over the years!

9/23/17: We are so excited to invite you to join us September 28, 2017, at 7pm EST as we welcome special guest Mr. Mark Jones for a night of fun, teaching, and encouragement. Mr. Mark will be sharing about “The Eight Ways Younger Children Learn.” Once parents understand these methods and how to use them in their homes, they can equip their children to enjoy learning and retain information better. Mr. Mark is the Children’s Pastor of Quail Baptist Church in Oklahoma City where he lives and teaches preschoolers, children, and their parents. He enjoys speaking, encouraging, and training children’s ministry leaders and parents. He is the founder of Mr. Mark’s Classroom, an online leadership development and teacher resource company. His passion is helping overwhelmed children’s ministry leaders, teachers, and parents get clarity, confidence, and the resources they need to win at reaching kids for Jesus, equipping kids with Bible skills, and teaching kids to serve others. Register today to join us!

9/11/17: We have another new class for you today – and a fun story about how it came to be! Marine Biology is now available, and it’s thanks to one of you. One of our members knows the teacher and told her she should contact us. As it turns out, it’s a class many of you have requested in the past. So the moral of the story is – if you know someone who should be part of our site, tell them to reach out to us! You never know what might happen. They can reach me anytime at We hope you enjoy Marine Biology!
