In my homeschooling career, I have had one child that struggled with reading and has always been a bit “below level” for his age. I have another child that learned to read later than most children, but caught up super quick and now reads on level. When I was given the opportunity to review the Dyslexia Gold Full Bundle from Dyslexia Gold, I was curious to see how it would help my children with their reading struggles.… READ MORE

One of my top goals for my children is to teach them HOW to learn, rather than just fill them up with knowledge and facts. For this review I was sent a full set, covering grades K through college age, of the Victus Study Skills System to take for a test run. We were able to use the Elementary and Middle/High School levels. This is the first system of its kind I have ever come across in my fifteen years of homeschooling! I am excited to share with you why I was so impressed with this curriculum, what we loved about it, and what we didn't like.
What is the Victus Study Skills System?
This program teaches a systematic approach to study, not only introducing concepts, but also a way of thinking to your students. We all encourage our students to work hard and study so they will be successful learners, but what does that actually look like? I personally wasn't taught HOW to study when I was a student, and I would bet that you weren't either! This system remedies that problem and does an excellent job of equipping your child to study efficiently and effectively. Some of the topics covered are:
- Learning styles/strengths
- Goal setting
- Time Management
- Study environment
- PQRST method
- Listening skills
- Note taking
- Test prep
