Beezus and Ramona Printable Book Study from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom (a Review) from Vicki-Arnold.com

Enchanted Homeschooling Mom was created by a homeschooling mom for other homeschool moms and families. Jill prolifically creates educational printables of all kinds. You can find free printables on her blog, but the real treasure is her member’s only website.

On the Enchanted Homeschooling Mom Member’s Only website, you will find over 300 printables. Yes, THREE HUNDRED. You can find printables for all four seasons, language arts, art, math, science, history, and more. She even offers curriculum, History Rocks and Weather Detectives are just two.

She offers these for the very low price of $15 for a lifetime membership. You get all the printables she’s ever created and any new ones she creates. You can’t beat the price.

About Beezus and Ramona Book Study

Jill gave me a lifetime membership in exchange for a review of a book study I was interested in. My favorite childhood author is Beverly Cleary and nothing has been more fun than introducing my kids to the effervescent Ramona Quimby.

I downloaded the Beezus and Ramona book study and set my 5th grader to work. The study is 63 pages long and includes creative writing, plot analysis, vocabulary, and more. The study is divided into chapters (like the book…) and includes a bookmark for your reader.

My Review of Beezus and Ramona Book Study

I like it! I like that it is thorough, but not overwhelming in depth. I like that Jill did the work for me in creating the study.

I think it is a good resource for helping my daughter analyze what she’s reading and I found it helpful to see what she took away from the story. The mix of writing pages with some drawing activities was nice for my artsy girl.

I like how the study walks them through creating their own story, helping them to plan things out and put it all together.

As I mentioned before, the pricing can’t be beat. There are other book studies and printables that we will probably use. And the weather detective curriculum sounds like fun.

The only possible negative I have to report was that it was a little difficult to find the Beezus and Ramona book study on the site because I was not sure which category it would fall under. I went for unit study/activity pack instinctively, but it was under language arts. Yeah, that’s pretty picky of me, but it’s the only negative I could come up with. ;)

    I would love to win this giveaway and share it with my kids, whom I homeschooled and graduated years ago. They are all homeschooling my grandchildren now. I tended to create my own style, according to what worked best with each of my kids (4) and what worked with our family at the time. You might call it the “flexible” style. I used many different curricula as well as the library and self-created studies. My husband led some of the science studies, such as weather and electricity, auto mechanics and home mechanics, writing his own course studies for each. I graduated 4, of whom 3 finished their 4 years of college with 3 B. A.’s and two M. A.’s. Very proud of them.

    • It’s great that your husband was involved, that is very important. Sounds like you did a great job with your kids! We love, love, love the library. ;)

  2. I like to work with my kids all of the time, but they don’t like it. They need breaks.

  3. i’m not sure what my homeschooling style is yet, i will be starting home preschool with my daughter this august, as she turns 3 in october. i’m very excited to find as much information and advice as i can!

    We have always been pretty well structured in our homeschool – set times for lessons & certain lessons on certain days, etc. That all changed this school year after my dad’s cancer diagnosis. I spend a lot of time taking him to chemo & dr. appointments, so we have had to become a LOT more flexible. I’m still struggling with it (my son has adapted better than I have!) I worry that we’re missing things & not spending enough time on lessons. I’m thinking about changing some things for next year, just not sure how yet. One thing I am thinking of is to let my son tell me what he is interested in learning & plan lessons around that as much as possible. I want to be more laid-back.We’ve being using boxed curriculum & I think it’s time to get away from that approach!

    • Flexibility is one of my favorite parts about homeschooling. What a blessing it is for you to be able to be there during this time for your dad. I pray he is doing well with his treatments. You don’t have to fully walk away from boxed curriculum if you aren’t comfortable with that yet. One of the things we do is follow a curriculum for 2-3 subjects and then we follow our children’s learning interests for the others. We change out what subjects we use curriculum for when I feel we need to cover something more intentionally. Math is pretty consistent for curriculum, but we have had times we’ve stepped back when someone was really struggling and needed a break.
