Spring Fling Giveaway: Personalized Learning Online Package from Wings to Soar Online Academy

This is a sponsored post and giveaway from Wings to Soar Online Academy. To read my review of director Beth Ellen Nash’s book Dyslexia Outside-the-Box, click here.

You want what’s best for your child. And you’ve probably already tried a LOT of different curriculum to try to help them learn. You know that laying a solid academic foundation will open many doors for success for the rest of their lives. But you’re concerned…

          • Are you worried about your child who is struggling with reading, spelling, writing, or math?
          • Are you at a loss for your next steps to help your child become a confident reader?
          • Are you afraid your child will never catch up?
          • Is your child ashamed of being so far behind?
          • Are you worried that your “late-bloomer” actually needs intervention?

        But you’re overwhelmed with all the options you’re exploring to help. And so many of the intervention options are just SO expensive.

        Perhaps you’ve tried a one-size-fits-all packaged curriculum for the security of knowing you had all your bases covered and learned that your child doesn’t fit inside that grade-level curriculum box. Most kids have a 3-5 year span of skills across the different academic areas within themselves. It is not uncommon for a 5th grader to be on target in reading comprehension, two or three levels above in oral vocabulary, a little ahead in math, a year or two behind in writing, and perhaps even further behind in spelling.

        Is your current academic program too dependent on Mom? And your child is craving independence. Plus, there is just too much on your plate and sometimes the academics slide when your curriculum requires too much of Mom’s time.


      • Our Wings to Soar Online Academy curriculum specialist has evaluated hundreds of print-based curriculum and over 120 online programs and selected 27 online programs that she feels are best at the function they each serve. Lean into our curriculum expertise and experience guiding hundreds of outside-the-box learners. Our weekly usage reports and more detailed quarterly progress reports will also help you keep on top of how your child is doing. And our weekly check-in accountability provides you the opportunity to reflect on how the week has gone and plan one practical thing you can do to make next week even better. You are NOT ALONE on your homeschooling journey when you work with Wings to Soar.


      • Starting with our free Just-Right Level™ Assessments, our team helps you put together a Path to Success™ Personalized Learning Plan in the combination of these online programs that is right for your child. We’ve done the heavy research to choose quality programs that will adapt to your child as they progress. The placement assessments will help them start at their own Just-Right Level™ in each skill strand. And you can trial your child’s personalized work plan for a week or two to make sure it’s a good fit before committing.


    • You don’t have to do this alone! Wings to Soar Online Academy partners with homeschooling parents to empower your outside-the-box learner to gain the skills, independence, confidence to not just survive, but thrive in school and in life.

The Beatrix Potter Book Club Organizer: A delight for your homeschool!

Affiliate links have been used in this post

When I found out that one of my members in the Enrichment Studies community was also an author of several children’s books, I was intrigued. When she told me that her newest book was a Beatrix Potter book club guide, I was even more excited!  Fellow homeschool mom and author Hosanna Rodriguez has created an absolutely beautiful guide to a memorable and lovely educational experience with your children.

If you’ve never considered a book club for your children, you will be inspired by the ideas in this book.  Hosanna has crafted an opportunity that will be fun and engaging for your children, while also paying off in huge educational dividends.  Language arts, critical thinking, writing, public speaking, and multisensory skills are all developed in a setting that can work at home with your family, or by joining forces with friends.


The Beatrix Potter Book Club Organizer takes you by the hand and walks you through each book to read, and all of the delightful crafts, activities, snacks, games, and special events.  There are beautiful photos all throughout this full-color book that show you live examples of happy kids enjoying the activities, as well as shopping lists, templates, planning forms, and more!

Honestly, reading through this book brought tears to my eyes many times, because it’s just the sort of thing I would have loved to do with my children when they were young.  I know so well that when we can create magical, memorable experiences with our children, the payoff keeps coming for years and years.  The Beatrix Potter Book Club Organizer offers you just that:  an opportunity to infuse your homeschool with something extra special, a fun and engaging way to learn and grow in many different skill areas, and precious keepsakes and memories to enjoy for years to come.
