Are your children counting down the days to Christmas? Are they keeping an extra eye out for Santa Claus or his Elves? Then I highly suggest printing out these fun snow globe Christmas Countdown pieces. I personally create a box on my white erase board that says “Days left until Christmas Day”. Each day the kids count the number of days on our school wall calendar...

  Have you begun to make your list and check it twice? I know that I collect gifts all year round that I stash all throughout the house in secret hiding places. Far too often in the past years I have hidden the gifts so well that I cannot find them or my husband and I purchase the same gift twice because we just did not take the time to keep track of the gifts...

While completing my Christmas Around the U.S.A. unit/curriculum I wanted to offer another wonderful FREE item for even more Christmas learning fun!  I came up with this great Christmas Countdown:     Once you have it all assembled you can countdown the States as you learn them, or count them up if you chose.  Each state has its...

“There’s lots of information included, but it’s done in a way you can pick and choose if you need or want to.For young kids, the unit will be a great introduction to the geography of the U.S. and for older kids it’s a great review while also teaching them more about each individual state.” – Genny @ In Lieu of Prechool   “I love...

As many of you may know that follow my blog, Math is not my favorite subject (in fact it is at the bottom of the list in my book). I do however recognize each and every day how very important it is in our daily lives. Our son is lucky since mathematic equations come naturally to him and are second nature. On the other hand our daughter is not such a fan when it comes...

This is an activity that I have done with our son since he was in Kindergarten. It is an easy and a fun way to visually work with fact families. You could make more than one tree or just one. Here are our children’s fact family trees:   First select a fact family and write it on the star for your child (such as: 2, 3 and 5). Then have your child cut out all...

For years now I have adored Eric Carle’s storybook Dream Snow. While the book itself is simple in concept there are so many hidden lesson within the pages. As an adult I know that the last page of the book makes a magical Christmas sound yet every single time we push that button it makes me giddy! This year I had our daughter complete a project that our son...

Start with Harry Connick Jr. singing the song (SOLD already, LOL) then add the DVD and finally there is a storybook (hooray!). The only element missing is a homeschooling activity unit to go along with everything. I have very fond memories of years and years ago when this song appeared on the Harry For The Holidays CD. Our entire family has grown to love Eubie the...

I stumbled across this fabulous idea on Pinterest two weeks ago and instantly fell in love with! I honestly do not think I have personally seen anything like this before so thank you very much to whomever this original idea originated from! Our family loves board games and as homeschoolers Scrabble is fun but very educational so it was the perfect project! Materials...

Just like our Halloween and Thanksgiving countdown pieces I have a set for Christmas. I personally create a box on my white erase board that says “Days left until Christmas”. Each day the kids count the number of days on our school calendar and we place the appropriate numbered Christmas character on the white erase board. I have found that this is a great...

I am very happy to share with everyone this 23 page Christmas activity unit. I made this activities unit very flexible so that any child from K-2 can take away some educational fun. This is intended to be taught in a homeschooling atmosphere but you could certainly use this in the classroom or at home. I created this set to be fun yet educational for children.   This...
