Soil Exploration Activity {& Free Printables}

Soil Exploration Activity {& Free Printables}

So it’s nearing the end of September which should mean the temperatures are cooling off…except that they aren’t. Not really anyway. Yesterday the airport recorded a temperature of 91 degrees {Fahrenheit} and the forecast for today and the following week is in the upper 80’s and possibly hitting 90 degrees again! And to top it all off, tomorrow is the first day of fall! ::sighs:: Every summer I contemplate moving just a smidge farther north so that when it’s fall,…

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…

Rocks & Minerals Unit Study

Rocks & Minerals Unit Study

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   One of the topics Rosie and Ladybug wanted to study was rocks and minerals. At first I honestly wasn’t sure how much I could pull together for it after covering the basics. As you’ll see on my Pinterest board {Learning Rocks & Minerals}, I found plenty of ideas to keep us busy!   Today I’m going to…

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…

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 – The Red Scarf Project

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   Did you know that I like to knit? Probably not since we are still getting to know each other. 🙂 Well, I do like to knit! I find it very enjoyable, and relaxing even…except when I mess up. haha Then it’s frustrating. But mostly, it’s enjoyable. For today’s Friday Favorites, I wanted to share a different side…

The Great American Solar Eclipse 2017

The Great American Solar Eclipse 2017

  I have to admit, as cool as the eclipse was, I’m glad the mania is over. I can’t begin to count the number of Facebook posts from people searching for the special glasses. And in only 7 short years, we can post the same posts all over again. 😉 Seriously though, my kids really enjoyed it and I’m glad we got to experience it together. We started out the day with the usual work: math, handwriting, and language arts….

North Carolina State Project

North Carolina State Project

  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* Today I wanted to share a project idea with you that we’ve done. We’ve spent some time doing a unit study of the history of North Carolina. I figured our state was as good a place as any to start with when it came to history. {By the way, if you are trying to help your kids learn…

Unit Study on the Ocean

Unit Study on the Ocean

Today I wanted to share one of our unit studies with you. I’ve been asked a few times where do I get my unit studies. After answering honestly with Pinterest, I get an ‘oh’ and the conversation seems to kind of fizzle out. I’m going to guess that it’s because putting together a unit study seems intimidating and stressful combined with a whole lot of “I have no clue where to start or what to cover!” and the nice and…

Today, I want to take some time to share what I’m planning for the subjects…
