Favorite Tot Activities of the Week

Favorite Tot Activities of the Week

Homeschooling multiple kids can be a balancing act. Depending on the range of ages of the kids, it can be hard to find that good middle ground. Too much focus on the younger ones and the education of the older ones suffer. Too much attention on the older kids, and the younger ones demand attention…at least mine does. 😉 This week though, I feel like I was able to strike a pretty decent balance. I feel like I can conquer…

15 YouTube Videos that MUST Be a Part of Your School Day

15 YouTube Videos that MUST Be a Part of Your School Day

By now, after reading through some of my posts, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I like to include YouTube videos in my school plans. Because the videos are enjoyed by my kids, I wanted to share them with you in hopes that your children will enjoy them too! We have music as part of our morning time. After singing songs that we already have the lyrics to (and know the tune of the song), we watch some videos and sing…

Ancient Greece STEM Challenge

Ancient Greece STEM Challenge

While we’ve been hard at work this week, and working on getting back into a routing after our week off, I’ve also been keeping my eye on Hurricane Irma. Man, that is a nasty looking storm. At one point, the forecast had it tracking directly over us. [Yikes!] For the moment, it’s tracking more westward and we should just see some wind and rain. [Whew!] So let’s take a look back at our week. This week we tried starting our…

Friday Favorites – Teacher Discounts

Friday Favorites – Teacher Discounts

Hey y’all! Well, my week of rest is winding down. I’ve had to do some more school shopping (getting that morning basket ready!) and pay from some upcoming field trips. This got me to thinking about saving money with discounts available to us homeschooling folks. There are already some stores and places I know of, and have been able to, thankfully, use my homeschool ID card to get the teacher discount. But there were more places that accept our status….

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Hey everyone! We’ve made it through another week! Feels good! 🙂 Earlier this week, I was chatting with a fellow homeschool mom and we got around to talking about the new school year. After comparing some of our new curriculum choices, we got around to talking about field trips. Ya know, it’s funny. Somehow, I don’t know how it happens, but it happens that along the way we forget about going out on just for fun field trips. (It’s funny…

Top 10 Instagram Accounts

It’s Friday! Hallelujah we made it to Friday! While our week wasn’t quite that bad, it was interesting. We started school back up this week and, well, let’s just say it takes us a little bit to get back in the routine of it all. Totally understandable. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need moment. 😉 Do you use Instagram? I started using it a couple of years ago. I like it because it’s all about the pictures. I love…

10 Things My Homeschool Can’t Survive Without!

10 Things My Homeschool Can’t Survive Without!

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   When I first started homeschooling, I joined a bunch of groups on Facebook. I searched for every possible group I could think of and joined the ones I could. It helped me feel less like I was jumping into the deep end by knowing there were lots of groups of people who had “been there done that”….
