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,...

Welcome back to my November 2015 meal planning for the 37th installment of my monthly meal planners. Can you believe that it has been about 3 years of monthly meal planning together already?! 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...

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

Your days are filled with to do lists and when you add a job on top...

As a homeschooling parent I am always on the hunt for ways to bring new technology into our lessons to expand on the things in life that interest my kids the most. It is always a plus when I ends up not hopefully costing an arm and leg to do so. I am sure that you are all familiar with Khan Academy in some way. My family has used their App for our entire homeschooling...
