The Little Schoolhouse On the Prairie

Welcome to our Homeschooling page.  The Little Schoolhouse On the Prairie is the home-educational journey of the Modern Pioneer Family.  We are an unapologetically CHRISTIAN Classically Educating family.  IF you don’t like that, please do not continue to read our blog journal… nobody is forcing you to read our posts.

We use an eclectic mixture of educational curriculm materials, many of which are FREE! (*Many of these resources are now in the public domain because of their antique nature, such as McGuffey’s Readers and Ray’s Arithmetics.) We have chosen our combination of curriculum materials to completely immerse our children in a richly rewarding Christian upbringing.

In the few months, since we began bringing our two oldest children “home-to-school”, we have seen a huge improvement in attitutes, efforts and manners from our formerly publically-schooled sons.  We look forward to more of these positive changes as we learn and grow in faith and education.

Occassionally, we will post or re-post guest-post articles on the subject of education here as well.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

Education is a lifetime goal… it does not begin in Kindergarten and end at 12th grade or at the end of a college program.  Education begins at birth and encompasses all the days of our lives. Our goal is for our children to become strong in the Lord, to be educated to their best abilities in the interests they are passionate about and the educational basics they need to learn anything they wish to learn on their own, to be strong in their belief in our U.S. Constitution and the Liberty & Freedoms of all Mankind!  That is our Mission!

The Bible, in the Book of Proverbs, admonishes parents with these words of wisdom:

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
