What readers are saying...
"I actually discovered your blog YEARS ago, when my oldest was a preschooler. Almost everything you post works like magic for my kids!"
I am a reluctant homeschooler that pulled my kids out of public school because they weren't getting the education I felt they deserved. Your blog posts really helped me in the early days of adjusting to homeschool life. My kids and I fell in love with you when you started the game school challenge in January of our first homeschooling year! You really helped guide me out of the 'school at home' mode!!! Who knew learning could be so much fun!?!
Before reading your blog, I was unaware of homeschoolers using games for school. Your blog has helped open my eyes to all the possibilities that games offer and the best part is the kids don’t even realize it’s ‘school’ and they’re having so much fun. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into a blog that has and continues to help so many of us homeschoolers!!
When you join the My Little Poppies community, you will learn to embrace your child's unique learning style, explore creative resources, and play more.
I doubt I would have thought to incorporate games on my own. In all honesty, I had to listen to both the gameschooling episodes of your podcast (more than once) and read many of your blog posts to wrap my head around how to make it work. I can master a heavy STEM curriculum quickly, but ask me to incorporate fun and my robot brain does not compute. Thanks for being a creative spark and inspiration to try something new!
Thank you for sharing all your great games, ideas, and wisdom on the web! I can’t tell you how invaluable they have been to me!
I just love your emails. They’re so real and funny and relatable!
