Homeschooling in Nevada offers a number of advantages, including being able to customize your children’s education to their individual needs and interests, as well as having more control over the educational environment.

Before you can begin homeschooling, there are certain requirements and regulations that must be met. In Nevada, homeschooling is regulated by the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) and the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC).

Nevada Notice of Intent to Homeschool

Under the NRS, homeschoolers must register with the state and submit a notice of intent to homeschool. The notice must include your name, address, and the name, address, and age of each child that is being homeschooled. It must also include a statement regarding the curriculum you plan to use. Please check the most recent up to date requirements here: https://doe.nv.gov/Homeschooling/

Nevada Notice of Intent Form – Download

The Nevada Notice of Intent Form needs to be mailed to our nearest school district. For a list of all Nevada school districts – check out this website: https://doe.nv.gov/Schools_Districts/Nevada_Schools_and_District_Information/

You only have to submit the notice of intent form once per school age child. Nevada currently does not require any updates after the initial form has been submitted.

Curriculum Plan for Nevada Homeschool

Attach a statement of the educational plan for the child, appropriate for the age and level of skill of the child as determined by the parent, in the subject areas of:

  • English:
    • including reading, composition and writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social studies
    • including history, geography, economics, and government


An educational plan that contains these requirements must not be used in any manner as a
basis for denial of a notice of intent to homeschool that is otherwise complete. The
parent is not required to ensure that each subject is taught each year that the child is
homeschooled.

If you are looking for example educational plans to submit with your Nevada intent to homeschool form, you can find all grade level examples here: https://nevadahomeschoolnetwork.com/world-book-course-of-study-not-common-core/

In terms of curriculum, Nevada homeschoolers may choose to use a variety of educational materials and resources, including traditional textbooks, online courses, and other educational materials.

Are you Ready to Homeschool in Nevada?

Homeschoolers tend to come from a wide range of backgrounds, including those whose parents have chosen to homeschool for religious or other reasons, and those who have chosen to homeschool for academic or financial reasons. Homeschooling can be a great alternative to traditional schooling for parents in Nevada.

By meeting the necessary requirements and regulations, and taking the time to research and select the right curriculum, Nevadan parents can provide their children with a unique, customized educational experience.

Using History Timeline Notebooks to Easily Track and Reference Historical Events in Your Homeschool


Are you looking for an effective way to teach history to your homeschooler and have a reference guide for years to come?

History Timeline Notebooks are a great way to easily track and reference historical events in your homeschool. They provide a comprehensive timeline of world events, as well as specific events related to the history curriculum you are teaching. Plus, they are incredibly easy to use and can be updated as needed!

My Favorite History Timeline Notebooks

Schoolnest History Notebooks

The History Timeline Notebook is a chronicle of your history studies over time.  Also known as a Book of Centuries, the History Timeline is to be used over many years as you read about people, places, and events of the past. Jot down the name of an inventor on the year they were born or the year they created their invention. Sketch famous artworks on the year they were painted. Over time you will see correlations, notice the events happening in historical figures’ lifetimes, and make connections in one moment in time across cultures.

The pages are graph paper, with a horizontal timeline through the center. Depending on the era, the years have different spacing (becoming more frequent as it gets more modern). The beginning of the book has 10 pages for a “My Timeline” section to create a personal or family history. The beginning of each era has an open-ended “best of the era” two-page spread to list or doodle your favorite or most notable moments of the era.

Why We Stopped Using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum- The Pros and Cons

Homeschooling is becoming more and more popular as parents take control of their children’s education. As with any educational choice, there are pros and cons to each and every curriculum. One of the most popular homeschool curriculum is The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum, which is designed to be an easy-to-use, open-and-go type of curriculum. We used this curriculum for multiple years and multiple levels and made the decision to stop using the Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum.

We used The Good and Beautiful homeschool curriculum for multiple subjects over multiple years.

Our Experience with The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum

We had been using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum for multiple levels with multiple children, covering multiple levels and subjects such as math, language arts, history, and science. It helped us get in a good rhythm and routine in our homeschool, but the actual content was lacking. I didn’t feel like my kids were learning and growing their knowledge.

For new homeschool families, this curriculum is an excellent choice because of its ease of use and its straightforward approach. However, after years of use, we found that this curriculum began to lack in-depth teaching of topics and review of subjects.

I will state that the art and geography lessons were truly enjoyable, however, we needed a solid Language Arts curriculum. These extra lessons took away from the normal day to day Language arts lesson. This was another reason we decided to stop using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum.

We enjoyed the extra art and geography lessons that were included, they were very engaging but took away from our dedicated Language Arts time.

The Issues We Faced Using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum

The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum is designed for a broad range of learners, from preschoolers to high schoolers. As such, the material is designed to be accessible to all learners. However, because of this, the curriculum lacks the depth and complexity of higher-level learning.

This became problematic for us as our children began to outgrow the basic material. In addition, the curriculum does not provide enough review of the subject material. Without sufficient review, our children struggled to retain the information they were learning. We found that they needed more comprehensive instruction and more opportunities to practice and review the material in order to truly understand the concepts they were learning.

Even after the revisions that the good and beautiful made to their curriculum, we still noticed the lack of depth in the lessons

The Pros and Cons of Using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum

Cons

  • Lacks in-depth teaching of topics
  • Does not provide enough review of the subject material
  • Lacks complexity for higher-level learners

Pros

  • Easy to use and open and go type of curriculum
  • Accessible to a broad range of learners
  • Great for new homeschool families

For these reasons, we stopped using The Good and Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum after four years. Although it is a great curriculum for new homeschool families, it is not well-suited for tenured homeschool families who need more depth and complexity in their lessons. We found that as our children advanced, we needed a more comprehensive curriculum that provided more detailed instruction and more opportunities for review.

The Benefits of Homeschooling: Statistical Evidence to Support Your Decision

Before we decided to take the leap from public school to homeschool, one of my very first searches was statistics of homeschool kids….because everyone needs proof right? What I found in my research helped me make the decision to homeschool my children.

Are There Actual Benefits to Homeschooling Your Children

Homeschooling has become increasingly popular in recent years, and with good reason. It offers many benefits that traditional education can’t, such as more personal attention, more control over curriculum, and the ability to customize learning to individual needs. But what are the tangible benefits of homeschooling?

Improved Academic Performance

Statistics provide a compelling argument for its effectiveness. One of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is the improved academic performance of students. According to a 2016 study by the National Home Education Research Institute, homeschooled students scored an average of 37 percentile points higher on standardized tests than their public school peers. This means that homeschooled students are more likely to excel in school and have a better chance of getting accepted into college.

Reduced Drop out Rate

Another benefit of homeschooling is that it can help reduce the dropout rate. A study conducted by the University of St. Thomas found that homeschooled high school students were 40 percent less likely to drop out of school than their public school peers. This is likely due to the fact that homeschooled students are able to move at their own pace and don’t feel the pressure to keep up with their classmates.

More Social Opportunities

Finally, homeschooling offers more social opportunities. Contrary to popular belief, homeschooled children are often more socially active than their public school counterparts. A study conducted by the University of Michigan found that homeschooled students were more likely to participate in extracurricular activities and had better social skills than their public school peers. This could be due to the fact that homeschooled students often have more free time to participate in activities outside of school.

Overall, the statistics show that homeschooling is an effective form of education. It provides students with the opportunity to excel academically, reduces the dropout rate, and increases their social activities. So if you’re considering homeschooling for your child, the evidence is there to support your decision.

Teaching a Preschooler to Write Letters – ABC Writing Lesson Review

This past August we “officially” started preschool with my son who was 3 when we started. I say this very lightly as we have no official preschool schedule. We have lots of different resources that we sit down and use whenever we have time and my son is in a school mood. Mostly we focus on things like playing- that’s really all a preschooler needs!

My son actually likes doing school, so that is why it’s more led by him when we ask when we will do some lessons. He has been extremely interested in learning to write his name- which is pretty exciting! I remembered that Timberdoodle gifted me with ABC Writing Lessons and it was the perfect resource to pull out for my preschooler learning to write.

I work with Timberdoodle to test out a product they include in their curriculum for kids. They gift me products at no cost to share my honest review.

From Timberdoodle Website:

ABC Writing Lesson

Because legible handwriting remains an essential skill, necessary for communication, give your pre-K student a valuable edge with the new colorful ABC Writing Lesson. This uncomplicated handwriting method is based on repetition in the form of tracing. There are multiple practice pages devoted to each letter, both uppercase and lowercase. Then, after working to develop muscle memory for that letter, the last letter page is for practicing the letter without tracing. 

An instructional example starts each line, so there is no guessing as to how to form the letter. The ABC Writing Lesson pages are nice and thick and easy to erase if necessary. The spaces are very generous and wide. Also included is practice for numbers 1-9. 

When Should My Child Learn To Write?

Honestly, I don’t know if there is a perfect time. I don’t think preschool is the traditional age- this is more commonly started in PreK – and kindergarten which is why this book is included in Timberdoodle’s PreK Kit.

The only reason we have been focusing on writing is that my son wants to we love taking an interest-led approach in our homeschool so if he wants to learn to write his name, then that’s what we are going to focus on, plus seeing him write out is name is ADORABLE!

How Do We Use ABC Writing Lessons in Preschool?

Using the ABC Writing Lesson book as been a huge help! Some letters like “O” my son can just look and copy with no issue, but the letter “C” he was having a hard time grasping where to start and stop which is where this workbook came in perfectly!

This work book took out the guess work for me as far as proper letter formation and gave my son colorful practice pages!

In the workbook you get about 4 pages total of each letter practice which includes both capital and lowercase letters. I do wish there were more practice pages, however, inside the front cover it does say you can get a PDF version from the website ReadingLessons.com and print multiple copies of the pages for extra practice.

Our Final Thoughts on ABC Writing Lessons

Overall I think this is a great tool to have in your resource pile for preschool up to Kindergarten. It really helps me as a teacher show proper letter formation and gives us a good path to practice letter writing! Its colorful and great quality- my son is able to follow the instructions and learn his letter formation.

Even a bonus, it starts teaching number 1-9 towards the end. This is an extremely affordable resource you will want to try! Check it out here: ABC Writing Lesson

Homeschool Computer Science – Let’s Start Coding Kit Review

If you follow me here on my blog, on Youtube, or my Instagram– you know I am a huge advocate for incorporating computer science lessons in your homeschool.

Computers and Technology are used in every career field, computer skills are extremely important for kids to learn, especially at a young age.

My interest in finding engaging and easy computer science is forever ongoing as there are always new skills to teach our kids. I was so excited when I received the Let’s Start Coding Base Kit from Timberdoodle to review!

I work with Timberdoodle to test out a product they include in their curriculum for kids. They provide my products at no cost to share my honest review.

Let’s Start Coding Base Kit – What is It?

My oldest daughter who is 10 and currently in the 4th grade, has a great interest in coding and robotics. She just finish a semester of robotics in her co-op class. Her eyes lit up when I showed her the Let’s Start Coding Base kit. Unlike past coding classes she has taken which have been online based ( which we did enjoy) this was a physical kit she could touch and create something!

From the Timberdoodle page:

Let’s Start Coding Base Kit, designed by parents, educators, and engineers, gives your creative child a chance to experience hands-on coding. Using the same code language used at NASA, Let’s Start Coding teaches C++ coding through 50 kid-friendly projects. With a computer and Let’s Start Coding, kids learn how computer programming can control physical objects. And they get immediate feedback by plugging in and coding the LED lights and speaker. Parents who are new to coding will be grateful that each project incorporates an online video. It will take your child through the code line by line, clearly explaining the concepts at work. Students with no prior experience will learn how to edit, compile, and execute code with Let’s Start Coding.

Our First Experience Coding with the Let’s Start Coding Base Kit

The way this kit is designed is to be student-led. They give you a website link that is easy step-by-step instructions the student should be able to follow independently. Obviously, I needed to be around to share our experience, but I wanted to stay as hands-off as possible and see if my 10-year-old could complete this.

So…. how did it go?

My 10 year old, who is in 4th grade, was able to follow the initial set up directions to install the USB and make sure the connection was working.

She was able to easily identify the parts in the kit and match them up to the directions.

I will say this kit is more of an intermediate level, this is real coding. My daughter has done previous coding classes but they were not as in-depth as this. The website you use www.letsstartcoding.com does complete the actual coding for you, but for a kid that has never seen code before might be a little mind-boggling.

If your child is more on the beginner level of coding I highly recommend you are sitting with them completing the activities.

Now with all that being said- my daughter had SO much fun with the different activities. She was able to manipulate the code with hints and recommendations to change the outcome, which made her more confident in the process.

Final Thoughts on Let’s Start Coding Base Kit

I absolutely love that this is a hands-on coding kit. This is actually showing a child code from a screen in real life going to a device. That in itself is amazing and for that reason I highly recommend this coding kit.

I do think that Timberdoodle has this in the 5th grade homeschool kit for a good reason, its more intermediate. I would even say this would be great as a middle or high school elective for computer science.

We will continue to work through our kit and develop or coding skills! Once we get through this kit, I am excited to try out all the other kits that are offered!

Teaching your Child to Read with the PRIDE Reading Program

Being a homeschool parent, one of the first things you encounter in regards to teaching your child something is, teaching them how to read. Before any curriculum or chapter books- we must start by teaching them how to recognize letters, sounds, and beginning to read.

As a mom of 3, I am always facing new challenges in the world of homeschool, my next challenge is teaching my preschooler how to read. I was so excited to work with PRIDE Reading and use their Pride Reading Program: Beginning Letters and Sounds to start teaching my preschooler how to read.

PRIDE Reading has sponsored this post and provided compensation and/or products for my honest opinion and review.

How does the PRIDE Reading Program teach kids how to read?

The PRIDE Reading Program is an easy to use, structured literacy, Orton-Gillingham curriculum for children of all ages. This homeschool curriculum uses engaging, multisensory methods to teach reading, writing, spelling, and comprehension.

How did we use the PRIDE Reading Program in our Homeschool?

The Pride Reading Program: Beginning Letters and Sounds was perfect to use for my preschooler. He already knows the letters and how to identify them, so learning the sounds was the next step. We enjoy the easy step by step lessons. I also like to point out that the lessons are all structured the same way, so we both know what to expect.

We do 1 lesson spread over two days, my son will be turning 4 soon and we like to keep school lessons around 10 minutes, I will say these lessons tend to take a bit longer to complete.

Coding in Homeschool – Eureka Champs Online Coding Classes

Being a homeschool parent comes with a heavy weight- constantly thinking are we doing enough, are we teaching the right subjects. I know I feel this especially when it comes to the topic of technology in homeschool. My kids were not always homeschooled and at their previous charter school, even in younger grades such as Kindergarten they took a weekly technology class that taught them computer skills and as they got into older grades, started introducing coding.

I knew that I wanted technology and coding to be apart of our homeschool but I wasn’t sure where to start. I am so excited that I was able to work with the company Eureka Champs and utilize their online coding classes as part of our homeschool.

Eureka Champs is Online Coding Classes for Kids Aged 6 to 10 years old. Eureka Champs offers a full value FREE Trial Class so you can check out what we’re all about and gauge your level of interest. They don't require a credit card or any hidden fees! With classes being a maximum of 4 students, Eureka Champs teachers can give your child the attention needed to truly learn how to code and design games while having fun in their class.

Is Technology and Coding Skills Important to Teach Kids?

As a working, homeschooling mom, I have a lot of job experience in the work force and seeing the evolution of how technology has become so integrated in most aspects of work. Basic computer skills are common knowledge now, and coding is becoming a highly sought after experience in any job position.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer related jobs are expected to grow at the faster than average rate through 2026, as well as the median annual salary for these career types is $87,580 which is more than twice the average for all other occupations ($37,690).

From personal experience in the workforce and too many statistic to count- YES, I think technology and coding skills are incredibly important to teach children and add into your homeschool.

Why use Eureka Champs for Online Coding Classes?

Eureka Champs is a newer company but the mission of this company is truly great! Created by two Canadian parents who see the importance of teaching coding to kids. Eureka Champs’ experienced teachers will walk your child through the course content with a direct look at your child’s screen while providing real-time feedback.

With classes being a maximum of 4 students, Eureka Champs teachers can give your child the attention needed to truly learn how to code and design games while having fun in their class.

How was our Experience with Eureka Champs Online Coding Class?

To be completely honest I am always a little hesitant when kid classes require zoom, or multiple programs because I know that connecting to them and downloading can be frustrating and require a lot of time. I figured the free trial class would be spent just getting set up and logged in……. that wasn’t the case at all.

I helped my daughter get set up on zoom, made sure she could hear and see with video. In our session my daughter was the only one so she got 100% of the teachers attention. The teacher was able to walk myself and my daughter through the process to download systems like Minecraft Education and Tynker. If we got stuck she quickly asked to take control of the screen and got us where we needed to be. This process took less than 10 minutes. That means the other 50 minutes of the class were dedicated to my daughter learning coding!

I was absolutely shocked with how quickly they were able to get us set up and on to the fun stuff! My daughter had so much fun learning and interacting with the teacher. The live class was great because it provided immediate feedback. My daughter was able to ask questions and learn just like she was in a real classroom.

My daughter was so excited after her class to show me the game she made. She even continued playing in the systems after the class ended.

Aren’t Coding Classes Expensive?

Probably the most important thing is always how much does it cost. I was pleasantly surprised with the price point for these classes with the level of instruction from the teachers. If you purchase a normal package, the classes average around $19.95/ per hour class. Which is a great price and comparable to other online class formats.

Don’t forget the first trial class is FREE, then you can use my discount code below to receive 20% off your 8 class package– which would make this an amazing deal!

Use code: First_Booking for a 20% discount for new students (only for the first 8-hour package).
