Ideally, if all things came together and the stars aligned and a magic fairy waved her wand and zapped my school supplies,… I’d be teaching Princess with a Saxon 2 Math book right now.

Alas, as the stars did not align, no fairy waved her wand, and God chose to bless me with an extra dose of ingenuity in lieu of plopping a book in my lap…here’s what we came up instead.

  1. I looked up the table of contents for the Saxon Math 2 book, to see what is covered.
  2. Then I search online for worksheets or games pertaining to the next concept and print some out and/or have her play them.
  3. If I have any questions about a chapter, I call my homeschooling friend who has a Saxon Math 2 book. I’m sure that you could go online and google a specific concept to find out more about it though.
  4. Once Princess has it we move on to the next

(Yes, it’s true that we’ve been hanging out on some extra addition practice for a while, but during that time I’ve continued on with new concepts like odd and even, rounding, measuring, graphing, temperature, etc.)

So that’s it. Homemade Saxon Math. Next year I’d much rather have the books, oh yes I would. I much prefer having all the work done for me! 😉 But for now… well, it works. It works just fine.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
