Updates

I had someone write and ask if we still needed money. We have received seven cards in the mail so far, so yes! I added to the bottom of the My EP Assignments page to show how much we’ve received.

I’ve also added a new video that’s eleven minutes long. It’s me talking you through how it works. Hopefully it shows you some more. Over the coming months I’ll make lots of little 30 second videos to show the how-to for each little thing. One thing I wish I had said, the “random” music is random among the choices I uploaded. They are instrumental pieces of varying genres.

Here’s that video.

 

Complete, All Free Curriculum

What is Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool?   

We exist to help families homeschool. We enable families to homeschool who thought they couldn’t because of a lack of finances, a lack of time, or a lack of know-how. Others join EP just because it’s easy and fun and they’re confident of the quality of education. EP seeks to free families from the burden of pursuing the “perfect” and encourages them to let it be “enough.” Each family and each child is different and we seek to provide the resources to enable your family to be who you were meant to be.

In 2011, I (Lee Giles) began putting my children’s assignments online so that they could work independently and so that I had the assignments saved for their younger siblings. I also wrote it from the beginning to be able to be used by other families. EP grade levels and individual courses include 180 days of homeschool lessons and assignments. It covers reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, math, history/social studies/geography, science, Spanish, Bible, computer, music, art, PE/health, and logic. It uses only free materials found on the internet.

This site holds preschool (getting ready 1), kindergarten (getting ready 2), and first through eighth. (We have a separate high school site.) Grade levels include all of the English, math, computer and logic. The other subjects are combined into “program years” so that all of your children can study the same topic at the same time. Year 1’s theme is ancient history and biology. Year 2 has early American history and zoology for the theme. Year 3 is earth science and geography and cultures as  the theme. Year 4’s theme is modern history, physics and chemistry.

Your child just goes to Day 1 on his or her level (found in the sidebar) and starts clicking through the assignments! That’s all!

And yes, it’s all free. You’ll need paper, pencil, etc. and some minor supplies if you choose to do the experiments and art projects, but all of the reading materials, etc. are all free and online. We do offer offline courses for math, reading, and language arts, which you can find in our store.

My hope is to enable families to continue homeschooling no matter their life circumstances. A sister site, All-in-One Highschool, holds the high school courses.

You can read more about the curriculum on the About and How To pages. You can also see if your questions have been answered on the FAQ page.

Note: EP is not an online school. We are a homeschool resource. Your home is the school! You are the administrator. We’re just here to help you on your way.

If you missed it…

If you missed it, I had an informative interview with the founder of Hire Cause, David Dvorkin, on the 4 professional skills that employers recently ranked as most desirable in employees. But really, I see them as skills everyone should be working on developing.  Here’s a video of the interview if you want to check it out.

He discussed why these skills cannot be learned in any classroom and why managers are too busy to teach these skills in any internship.  We also discuss why these skills are even more important if your children dream to maybe work for themselves one day.

Lastly, we discuss how the essential key to developing these professional skills is to be surrounded by a supportive community of peers and mentors who are on the same journey.  When your children are working alongside others who want to see them succeed and make a difference in their community at the highest level, this is where the magic happens in helping them pursue their dreams.

If your teens want to apply to Hire Cause, just a reminder that the deadline for applications is next Friday, 12/7.  If your children are interested in a fun way to develop the professional skills they need while positively impacting others in their community, then I hope they’ll consider Hire Cause.

Special Note:  You must apply BEFORE December 7th to get the better price for the Hire Cause program. The price of the program is $1,250, but the introductory rate is $500, just for EP! You’ll use the promo code “Easy Peasy” on the last line on the application. If that’s still too much, there are need-based scholarships available. 

Resources for Teens

I have a couple of resources for high schoolers that I’ve been learning about and will be sharing with you in the coming months. They both have costs; there are just some things we can’t get for free.  The first one I’ll be sharing about is a company called Hire Cause.

They mentor kids through a project where they work with a local business to raise money for the charity of their choice.

I think this program could really have a long-term impact on kids who participate and see their project through.

Easy Peasy kids get their lowest prices! You can read about it below and on our site.

Career Preparation With a “Hire Cause”

What do your children want to be when they grow up? Whatever their dream, there are professional skills, which if they develop, have the power to propel them forward in the direction of their dreams.

The challenge is that these professional skills cannot be learned in any classroom, and overworked managers are too busy to teach them in any internship. That’s why so many interns are getting coffee and stapling papers for stressed out supervisors.

What if there was a fun way to develop the professional skills your children needed to pursue their dreams? What if they had a supportive community of peers and mentors helping them along the way? And what if they could develop these skills through projects that had a positive impact on their community?

If you want your children to do well by doing good and grow their skill sets through giving back to their community, then I recommend they apply to the Hire Cause program here. This career prep program is refreshingly unique and powerful. Financial scholarships are also available (and promised to you if you apply in the next few weeks).
