Calm in the Chaos Homeschool

Hi! My name is Davene, and I am currently homeschooling four kids, ages 10-14. I would call our homeschooling style "Charlotte Mason inspired, literature-based, and eclectic." Over the years that I have been homeschooling my children, it has become more and more of a passion for me. I especially enjoy finding the "perfect" curriculum for each subject for each of my kids!









  1. – Learn how to spell with an auditory, mastery approach that works! This link gives free access to the talk Spelling and the Brain, the first lesson of The Phonetic Zoo Spelling course (Levels A, B, and C), and The Phonetic Zoo Teacher’s Notes e-book PDF.
  2. – Teach language arts to primary grade children (grades K–2) using the Blended Sight and Sound method. Get a free sample of Printing with Letter Stories to try on your own!
  3. – Find out more about IEW's theme-based writing books.
  4. – View or download a digital copy of IEW's magazine catalog.
  5. – Listen to IEW's weekly podcast, The Arts of Language.
  6. Sign up to receive IEW's monthly newsletter and blogs.
