Rice & Rocks: A Jamaican-American Story

Rice & Rocks by Sandra L Richards

I am always on the look-out for culturally sound books and resources to use in my homeschool (and to share with you)! When I learned about Richard’s debut book, Rice & Rocks, I was all over it. I really enjoyed this story, and I think you will too. Ultimately, Rice & Rocks is about family, […]

Historically Black Colleges & Universities Learning Activity


I know that my African-American readers know all too well about how History is taught in standard American Education, so I will digress from that soapbox. But, I will say that I am firm believer that students should be educated at large (and with a special emphasis in History) in their own culture by their […]

Homeschool Curriculum 2016-2017

Homeschool Curriculum-MorahSheli

Last year I returned back to my a-la-carte curriculum options since the first time I began my homeschooling journey. Last year was also my return back to an “eclectic” style, as I am not ready to hone in on any specific style. Take a quick look at my curriculum and homeschool styles over the years. I have […]

The First Cycle Feast

MSV Banner

Greetings! My baby boy had his special First Cycle Feast as he transitioned from baby to boy, and I thought I’d share a few highlights with you all. A few months later, I can surely see the “baby” slip away and the “boy” arise. The transition is normal, natural, and necessary so I proud of him; […]
