I would suggest the same as your friend and Patti. Something else that may help is if your kids are young then get some Magic School Bus videos from your library or you can download from the internet (here is how)

Go to and download the software. Then click on this link. That should either open straight in utorrent or ask you if you want to save it, regardless, you want to open it in utorrent. Then utorrent will download it for you, when it's done, you right click on the torrent in utorrent and click on "open containing folder", then that will open the folder where the files are and you can do what you like with them.

Also, Nest videos are excellent for teaching history if you can get them at your library or from a friend I would definitely borrow the Heroes ones. Many of them are on youtube too.

Remember that Math and Reading are the most important. Others can wait for a little while. Many people don't start spelling until the 2nd grade. Spelling Power is an excellent book that covers 1st-12th and many on here use it and it is always for sale. Reading is REading. Let them read to each other or to you while you take care of the baby. Math, my kids liked School House Rock. Oh, those are excellent and are on the internet too. Mine middle son still says his 5 times tables w/a Southern Accent. We don't even listen to Rock music but we loved most of these. I didn't like the two one so we got a cassette tape (available at most bookstores) called "Skip Counting". They have a regular one and a Bible Heroes one for around $10. They are worth their weight in gold to me. I have a son that has a very hard time memorizing anything. I made him listen to these songs everyday whatever table we were working on. He learned them fairly effortlessly and they teach both multiplication and division at the same time since it is skip counting you can teach it for both!
We ended up trashing our math book in the 3rd grade and just learning these! He didn't suffer one bit.

Ok, that of course is my easy way. I don't do just that all the time. I honestly, mostly use Abeka books in the early years. However, sometimes I think my kids learned the most from these videos. At least they remembered a lot. Hope that helps.
