Thank you for supporting my blog and homeschool!
See my full Disclosure statement for more information.
We find ourselves nearing the end of our fourth year of homeschooling, and so many things have become easier. My top priority each year is finding the right curriculum for each child! Memoria Press has become such a big help with that! Which is why I was so excited to review the 8th Grade Literature Guide Set from Memoria Press. Answer this question.....Have any of you ever had your child read a book for English/Literature and then have to hurry and read it yourself so you can put together study questions for it? I know that I have!!  And let me just add that it isn't all that fun! That is one BIG reason that I am so thankful for Memoria Press.
A Little Bit About the Company:
Memoria Press is a family-run publishing company that was founded by Cheryl Lowe in 1994. It produces wonderful, simple to use Christian education materials that benefit Homeschool families as well as private schools.

Then we just went to the library and checked out the books to read as we worked through the curriculum.
How We Used It:
My daughter decided to start with Treasure Island first. We were able to check out the book and dive right in! At the beginning of the study guide there is a couple pages about the author of the book, which I found to be a great addition to the study guide. Then what you find when you open up the Student Guide are several sections for each chapter that is read. The sections are split up into: Reading Notes, Vocabulary, Comprehension Questions, Quotations and Discussion Questions. Your student can work through the study guide and fill in the blanks.
When I decided to start homeschooling it was because my daughter was struggling with reading comprehension, so watching her work through this study guide and build her reading comprehension at the same time was very rewarding for me.
My Bottom Line:
This is a great product! At this stage of the game, I find that the simpler something is.....the better. Memoria Press and the 8th Grade Literature Guide Set is a lifesaver for me! This makes adding books to a reading list simple and easy. Now homeschool parents everywhere have a little helper when it comes to reading comprehension guides. Memoria Press does a great job of not just making their products simple and easy-to-use, but also very affordable! Order yours today!
Social Media:
If you are like most people these days, you have found the benefit of staying connected through social media.
