In one week I’ll start accepting short story submissions for our first EP competition. Submissions will be accepted from April 15th to May 15th and can be made by any homeschool student, so spread the word! I’m planning cash prizes for eight winners.
It feels like a long time coming, but we have Language Arts 7 out! I hope this is a big help to your families.
This means that Language Arts 7 can now be completed as an offline course. It also means that the printables for the online course are available as a packet or workbook.
Every time we get worksheets or lessons or games onto our site, it means we can’t lose them. We’re not at the mercy of another site. It’s good for everyone each time we make progress on something like this.
Thank you to Tina Rutherford for making the worksheets for the course and to Holly Dunn for her eagle-eye editing.

Growing up I participated in National History Day competitions, where you research a topic and present your research. I was in the Media category and did slide shows. Very old fashioned now! I also did speech competitions. So, here’s me trying to recreate a piece of my childhood. 🙂
Right now I have chosen three competitions: science, history, writing. There’s a cost to enter because I want quality submissions and I want to offer prizes!
They will be held throughout the year. The dates for submissions are on the EP Competition page, found under the About in the menu. The first up is the spring competition, short stories. In the fall, there will be a science fair. In the winter, it will be history, where you will make a video on your topic.
Start brainstorming! And share the news. It will be much better the more people are involved! It’s for homeschoolers ages 8 – 17.
A Year of Thanks
Thanks to everyone who helps EP grow by just loving it and sharing the love.
Thank you to my faithful helpers who are there for me and for everyone using EP day in and day out. This couldn’t happen without you!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to EP this year, those who gave one-time gifts, and those who support our ministry here with monthly donations. You cover EP’s costs and keep this running. Everyone appreciates your giving whether they know it or not!
The Year in Comments…
We may be different than some families, as we use your curriculum over any other, not because it is free, but because it is more thorough, motivating, fun, and ADVANCED than any other big box curriculum we could buy.
I’ve had such great success teaching my kids to read using GC and EP! I am a teacher as well, and have taught probably 100 kids to read, and used many different curricula, but this, by far, is the simplest to use and most effective curricula I have come across.
What a blessing this curriculum has been for my family!
The excellence with which you have put together the daily lessons makes it one of the very best I have ever seen. Educationally, your curriculum is sound and very rigorous, while at the same time attainable for all children.
Easy Peasy All-in-one High School has made what seemed impossible, possible! As a bonus, my kid has aced all of her subjects, something she always struggled with in private school. Thank you!

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.
