We’re excited to introduce parenting OC’s newest contributor, Adriene Madden with the Little Red Schoolhouse! OC mother of four, Adriene began her journey homeschooling her own children in her backyard barn that she converted into her “Little Red Schoolhouse”. Eight years ago, she decided to open her doors to children pre-K- fifth grade, to create adventures in learning through hands-on experiences in language arts and writing. Mrs. Madden incorporates several different mediums, such as working with her animals in her backyard mini-farm, gardening, baking, and crafting to create memorable thematic lessons! You will be able to see her original content here including fun, multi-sensory projects that are easy for busy mom’s like you!
To learn more about classes and view Mrs. Madden’s “free” thematic mini-lessons, visit her website www.adventuresintheschoolhouse.com
