Super durable paper dolls -- a tutorial using velcro & a laminator
Did you play with paper dolls when you were a kid? I did — but nearly as much as my girls do now. They LOVE paper dolls. We’ve used historical paper dolls to enhance our history lessons and to make stories come alive through play. They can be so much fun! But they can also …
Favourite Reviews of 2016 - my favourite products, books & curriculum reviews from this past year
A great blessing and privilege of being a blogger, and especially a homeschool blogger, is having the opportunity to do reviews. After counting all of my reviews from 2016 I was amazed that I had completed 22! These were books, curriculum, digital subscriptions, and games — and while some of these products weren’t a great fit …
2016 Reading Plan - Update!
About this time last year I posted about my 2016 reading plan. This was the first year I had ever planned my reading in advance, or had any kind of reading goals. I’m going to come right out and say it here at the beginning of this post — I did not read each of …
I can still remember the freshness of the very first time I ever read through the Bible. Everything was so new to me! I could easily spend an hour reading the word, taking notes, being totally in awe of all that I was discovering about the Lord Jesus within those precious pages. That was just …
Every Day with God: 365 Daily Devos for Girls is a short and sweet daily devotional for young girls. From the day we received it, my 5 year old has been carrying it around both in the house and away from home. She’s tickled pink to have her own daily devotional just like her big …
Why Adults Should be Reading Kid Lit - why I'm spending so much time reading Juvenile Fiction selections
You know what’s on my bedside table more often than not these days? Children’s books. No, I don’t mean picture books (which I’m already reading en mass to three little girls who beg me to from sun-up to sun-down), but what my children call “chapter books”. Why would a grown woman, especially one who is striving for …
2016 Reading Plan - Update!
  A month or so ago I noticed that my desire and motivation to keep plugging away at my 2016 Reading Plan had wained and I was really having to force myself to read.  My list involves some pretty heavy reads(for me anyways!) and it really began to feel like work, drudgery even, to keep on. Then …
Our home library has a good share of Dr. Seuss books, including Green Eggs and Ham. Here’s a little something I worked on with my girls, the product of an afternoon of fun! Yes, I realize homeschool is spelled incorrectly — homeschool stereotypes and all that.
Our Backyard Birds notebooks - NotebookingPages.com Review
Today I’m excited to be telling you about an amazing digital product I have recently been given the opportunity to review. I’m really impressed with it, and I wish I had had it back when I first began this homeschool adventure with my children.
My School Year- review of MySchoolYear.com
I’m definitely a minimalist, and this rings especially true when it comes to homeschool planning, scheduling and record keeping. My province requires no plans, approval, or records to be kept, and I like it that way 🙂 When my oldest was in first grade, I used to keep a checklist of subjects covered and I …
