Learning Every Minute:  Activities for Homeschoolers, Unschoolers & Extra-Schoolers Alike Vol 1

Love the Idea of Homeschooling and Unschooling, but Still Find Yourself Worrying At Times?

  •  Do you live in an area where you are required to put together lesson plans or submit quarterly reports, and find it a struggle given your un-schooling or relaxed schooling style?
  • Is your partner or family anxious about what’s being covered?
  • Do you just know in your bones your kids are learning things, but find it hard to explain to others, or put into words?
  • Or maybe your child attends school, but you want to cover some extras without your kids feeling like they never have time for fun?
     If you relate to any of these, you need to check out Learning Every Minute.  Laura Saba will show you how to weave learning into everyday living, while breaking down for you what subjects and topics are being covered when it looks like not much more is going on than some simple conversations, activities, giggles, and fun.   You can use her activities and suggestions, or just learn how to view your own day through a lens of “logging learning moments,” helping you better meet requirements, and earning you some peace of mind.  

     Laura homeschooled her now grown kids using a primarily unschooling approach, coupled with a few eclectic, relaxed unit studies and the occasional curricula along the way. Now grown, they’ve found career success and happiness. In this book you will explore some of the fun activities and conversations that allowed them to wrap learning into the day naturally, and effortlessly – and quite often with lots of giggles and fun, as they discovered this is one of the best ways to learn and retain information.


This volume includes conversations, activities & games for learning basic and critical thinking skills for grades k-3 and beyond.   Some of them you may use for many years to come, expanding upon them as your child grows into them.

      While most activities involve action and/or conversation, there is an exception when it comes to reading-related activities.   For instance, the book includes a chart of Greek & Latin root words with suggestions as to how to effortlessly work them into your lives in a fun and playful way.  
     Knowing 100 or so of these has been demonstrated to dramatically improve vocabulary and reading comprehension.   Don’t worry, though, all activities can be folded into your day in a way that is fun, rather than school-ish or chore-like. Each activity also lists what skills are taught, so that if you need to fill out reports or lesson plans, you know how to document them correctly. 

The book includes a link to a website and pass-code to a private web-based app for a Story-telling Spinner Game: Your child can spin the spinners to be assigned elements from which to weave a story: A main character, a sidekick, a challenge, a nemesis, the object of that challenge, and a special skill or power they can use in creating a story – this can become an incredibly fun family past-time! (the spinner does include fantasy elements such as magical creatures and super-heroes).  You can purchase the book now and receive the app code, the app itself will be available online on or about January 7, 2014.
