Long time no see huh?! If you have been visiting my site, purchasing my printables, sending me emails, or in general, keeping an eye out on my site I would just like to take the time to truly say bless you and thank you! Sadly my health for the last year and half has only declined even further. I am fighting the fight but some days it just seems like a really bad...

Ok, I know I am not alone in this boat, but if you have children that are very active or who have better learning experiences using hands-on learning techniques and tools it can most definitely be draining. Why you ask? In the beginning it is SO much fun because there is just a flood of ideas out there which is fantastic, thank you internet! BUT … then after 6 or...

Hold on one second while I have my son cover his ears. As he is almost 12 years old I am going to reminisce about the importance of Finding Nemo in our family and may just use one of my embarrassing moments that make my son say “Mom?!” When my son was very young, Finding Nemo had just come out on DVD. Little did my husband and I know at the time that we would...

I hope that you and your children are having fun learning alongside the Poppins Book Nook participants. Last month we explored and created storybook activities themed to Newbery Medal Books. This month’s new theme is Artists. Artists are important to storybooks. They can help bring the story and the author’s ideas to life with vivid images. With that in mind,...

This installment covers all 30 days of the month of November and includes the added bonus of delicious meal and dessert suggestions for your Thanksgiving feast.  This FREE...

Have you ever noticed how Thanksgiving seems to get over shadowed between Halloween and Christmas? I am as guilty as the next person of wanting good Ol’ Saint Nick to hurry up and come down that chimney (ok fine I am actually probably worse than most people). I do however take the month of November leading up to Thanksgiving to focus our learning on celebrating...

With autumn being in full swing, it brings us all closer to three of our family’s favorite holidays, Halloween (for the candy), Thanksgiving (for the family and friends), and Christmas (for all things Christmas, you really can’t go wrong). With this in mind I thought it might be good to start preparing a few fun learning activities for Beck and Elizabeth to do...

These October and November book finds are some of the latest books to hit the book shelves.

I like to say that if my children find and bolster their...
