{Free} Bug & Farm Animal Printable Notebooking Pages

Today, I got to start my day by getting my hair done. Sure was nice. I never have had my hair done by someone else first thing in the morning. My Ladybug gave me 3 different hairstyles throughout the course of the day. šŸ™‚ I did, in fact, wear the final hairstyle when I brought her to gymnastics in the evening. I just wanted to share with you guys this awesomeness. šŸ˜‰ You guys remember a couple of weeks ago,…

Let Your Kids Eat the Rock Cycle!

Let Your Kids Eat the Rock Cycle!

  Awhile back, we learned about Rocks and Minerals. We did read some books, watched some videos, drew pictures, went on rock hunts, and grew our own salt crystals. In addition to those hands-on activities, if your kids are like mine, your kiddos will also want to do some edible activities. I mean, who doesn’t love snacking while learning?? Today’s activity uses Starburst candies to demonstrate the rock process. Let’s get started! What you’ll need: Starburst candies paring knife cutting…

It’s Not Just Me, Right?

It’s Not Just Me, Right?

I wanted to take a break today from my usual posts to pose this question to you: Does this happen to you?? Please. This can’t be happening to just me! Okay. ::deep breath:: Perhaps I should start at the beginning. When we bought this house, one of the big selling points was the giant second floor bonus room. There is just so much space and so many possibilities of what to do with it. Of course we knew that a…

Morning Circle Time

Morning Circle Time

  Yesterday I talked about what is in our morning basket. I am definitely looking forward to starting this and I know the girls are too (they saw the Mad Libs and Aesop’s Fables sitting in it). This is only half of our morning routine, though. The other half of our new morning routine caters more to my toddler to help him feel like he is more of a part of our school. Especially since he is a sponge and…

What’s in Our Morning Basket?

What’s in Our Morning Basket?

Ā  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* I have high hopes for the next 6 weeks. I want to be more intentional with the way we start our days and our morning time. The last six weeks have been a struggle. Our good days usually started out with time with Jesus Calling for Kids. Our other days, well, didn’t. They ended up being a…

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….

Morning Basket – Including the Toddler

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   While we’re on a little break, I’ve decided to change up our routine a little bit and create a more official morning time. I’ve been listening to some of Pam Barnhill’s podcasts about morning time and morning baskets and I think that this sounds like the best way to go about this time of the day. So…

Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl Day

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   As kids, we’ve all read Roald Dahl books. We all had our favorites. [Not to mention that some of my favorite movies growing up were the ones based on Dahl’s books.] As a kid, my favorite was Matilda. AsĀ a parent, I’ve loved reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to my girls and also to Rosie’s class when…
