Jenny Bales

Catholic Mother and Homeschooling Consultant

Jenny and her husband have been married since 1999 and live in North Texas with their 4 children, ages 8-18, who have been homeschooled all their lives. Her homeschool philosophy is “whatever works” with a smattering of literature-based learning, Charlotte Mason, and Classical elements. She is addicted to tea (hot and sweet), dark chocolate, red wine, college football, and mystery novels and cannot resist an opportunity to coordinate a conference, retreat, co-op, book study, social group, and/or moms night out. She loves to reflect on all aspects of Catholic homeschooling through the lens of our incredible Catholic faith.

Math: A Great Beginning Process

Math: A Great Beginning Process

Experience, lots of it, has taught me time and time again that much of learning math skills and concepts in the early formative years is going to be learned through manipulatives, not workbooks. Granted, there may be children who already understand the connection...

Introducing Littles to History!

Introducing Littles to History!

With the younger set, I really love to begin an introduction of history, and the concept of time, by simply telling stories.   What kind of stories? I often began with the stories of my own family.  My little ones and yours LOVE to hear the stories about "when mommy...
