  As you all know I love almost all the animals around our home. We all love watching the bunnies, Bob the road runner (and family now), the wild turkeys, and all the beautifully colored birds, but you might also remember that we have some very aggressive and selfish squirrels. This time of year every year we make a stop on our homeschooling journey at the local...

I wanted to add a little fall/pumpkin fun into our schoolroom! I created this pumpkin template by printing it onto cardstock. Then, I wrote a family member’s name on the leaf of the steam. I included step by step instructions with the template so that you know how to fold the pumpkin to make it a standing pumpkin. I have several throughout my home now. Some of them...

I wanted to create a little monster and witchy fun for Beck and Elizabeth to complete during the month of October. I have always found that throwing in a pinch of fun and games into the kids learning experiences help them absorb what they are learning times ten! And it does not hurt that if your children are anything like my children once they even sniff a holiday...

Every year our family takes a fabulous field trip to a local farm/pumpkin patch in October. It always seems to take an entire day for this field trip since there is so much to do and see. We tend to take this field trip during the week so we do not have to deal with the weekend crowds I do not want the kids to loose out on a day of learning. For the past 4 years I...

I always want to include the seasons or holidays in our learning experiences. It just makes it so much more fun than doing the same old experiments all school year long. I wanted to share with everyone a fantastic printable set that I found over at CurrClick. I honestly have never been disappointed with a purchase from CurrClick and could more than likely spend an...

Our son had a Cub Scout den meeting this past week and our family offered to bring snacks. When the den-meeting day finally arrived I was working off of 4 hours of sleep (my husband an I were up very late cyber shopping several deals online for Christmas presents). I had completely forgotten what I originally intended to make for a snack for the boys. Then I went...

This was so simple, yet so cute that I decided to share this idea with everyone. To make this project you will need: – 1 clean plastic 2-liter soda bottle – Orange paint (I used Tempera paint since that’s all we had in the house) – Black construction paper – 1 battery operated votive candle First cut the ends off of your 2-liter soda...

Materials needed:            White erase board and pens This is a fun activity to incorporate into your learning activities during October. Ask your child a question (such as a color, number, spell a word, locate a country on a map, etc.) If your child answers the question correctly draw a pumpkin outline on your dry erase board. Continue adding a stem,...

  Since it is almost October that means it’s time to once again dig through my curriculum bins for anything Halloween. I wanted to share this fun math game with everyone for the month of October. I have created it so that it is appropriate for grades K – 3.   First you will need to make the game boards. I took 2 pieces of black construction paper and...

I would like to take a moment and share with everyone some of the themes, topics and resources that I will be using for our children for the month of October. My hope in sharing these ideas is that perhaps it can help someone else find some new resources. Please note that I will not be mentioning every item used however if you see an item that you would like to...
