|I am so excited for these Literature Studies, I can't wait to use them later this year!|
This year for Buddy we are studying the Civil War for History. We have also been working on learning about the Election process since it is a current event and it is receiving so much attention. So once I logged in, I headed right to the Social Studies subject area. I knew I wanted to look and see what was available for Buddy’s history classes since we are not using a boxed curriculum. I was very excited to find several resources for the Civil War and I promptly downloaded the Student Textbook resource. We have read through a couple random sections in this book that go along with the Civil War subjects we have started studying (it is an enormous topic that we are breaking down into small, manageable bits). I love the lessons it has planned out to go along with the reading and the teaching prompts for the lessons. They might be designed for more than just one student, but I found them easily adaptable. I also marked in our school planner when we will use the other resources for the Civil War that CHSH has available because they are on very specific topics that we will be covering later on in the year. The next area I checked out for Buddy was also in Social Studies and it is all about Elections. We have been using the resource on the Electoral College because it is more in depth than the resource I originally planned to have him use to study this topic. Buddy has been reading through this resource and answering the questions I created for him from the reading. We also have been working through the “Election Analysis” resource which has him paying more attention to the candidates, their campaigns, and the advertising they do. This one we work on about once a week because I want him to see how the campaigns change as it gets closer to the election. I have also printed off a couple of fun review packets for him. They are for grade levels below him, but it never really hurts to review past concepts in my opinion. I have also been searching through the worksheets for ones that I can print off and take with us on an upcoming trip so that we can still work on school, but not have to carry extra books with us.

I can honestly tell you that every time I look through the resources available for members I find something else I want to use. I also find this site to be very helpful and encouraging as there are also resources for organization, classroom helps, an active forum where you can chat with other members and homeschoolers, and it links to their Facebook Group where you can also interact and ask questions you may have about homeschooling and the resources CHSH offers. I feel like this site is an amazing price for what you get and once my annual subscription is up, I am highly considering purchasing the lifetime membership. You definitely get a lot for very little money. They do have free resources available for you to download on their website and if you subscribe to their newsletter, she sends out more freebies.
You can find out all about CHSH-Teach.com by visiting their website. There are also several places you can find them on Social Media – Facebook Group, Facebook Page, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ Group, Google+ Business Page, Linked-In, and Tumblr. You can learn more about the CHSH Download Club here. I hope that you check out this resource for yourself and see if it works for your family.
