This collaboration is brought to you by Study.com and is based on my unbiased experience using the site.
I hated studying in school. Honestly, I’m so grateful that I was just one of those kids that didn’t need to study much. Although, I don’t know if that was actually a good or a bad thing since I don’t really remember a whole lot from my school days.
Now that I’m homeschooling my own kids, all that “stuff” I thought I learned has kind of faded and most of that temporarily memorized information is long gone. Which brings me to an important point- studying is so critical to the learning process. So if you’re one of those parents that need a little backup, or have a kid that you think could use the extra support, this homeschool study resource is for you!
First, we need to grasp the concept of studying. Studying is so much more than preparing for a test and then forgetting all the information afterward. Proper studying will help us to better understand, remember (not memorize) information, and equip us to be able to apply what we’ve learned through real-life situations.
If only I knew that when I was a bratty kid. But, thankfully, there’s technology that picks up where I tend to fall short- which is a lot. So I can teach my little heart out, and then if we need a little reinforcement, head to some of my favorite homeschool study resources to do a better job.

You see, sometimes it takes someone other than “mom” to get their attention. Sometimes watching something be done again, helps them to understand. Sometimes, we just don’t have the right words, or the right voice, or enough patience, or the right method, or be honest- the smarts for it all.
I’m the first to admit that I need help and Study.com is my personal homeschool helper.

Since I’ve got a little first grader and one in K-4, we’ve been browsing through all the extras that we can use! The first-grade math help is welcomed over this way because while my little has so much potential, I feel like I’m butchering it in the Arithmetic teacher role.
