Starting the Day off Right

Starting the Day off Right

Does anyone else feel like that break went by way too fast?! We're getting ready to start back with our regular schedule next Monday and I'm busy with planning and preparation. Last semester was pretty hectic around here, even for us, and that's saying something. So I'm really working on being intentional about making sure our days start well. I've been brainstorming the different things I do (unfortunately, not always consistently!) that help get our days off to a good start and I wanted to share them with you.

Winter Survival

Winter Survival

To make it through the long, dark weeks until the weather finally starts to warm up again, I've had to be very intentional about making our school work more interesting or finding fun things to do. Here are a few ways I've tried to beat the winter blahs in the past!

Christmas Fun

Christmas Fun

I'm so excited that Christmas is almost here! No, I don't have everything done yet, but at least we're ready for break. My daughter is still young enough that we've been doing Christmas-themed school for a couple of weeks, but I miss the days when I could do that with my son, too. If your kids are older or if you've been sticking with your normal school studies, here are a few ideas to get in some holiday fun before the big day arrives!

History Pockets

History Pockets

As my kids get older and are taking on more school subjects, I'm finding that I'm more strapped for time than ever. Yes, they're becoming more independent, but there's only so much they do completely on their own. The fact is, I need to be either working with them or at least nearby for a good portion of our school day, which means less time for me to sit down and think and plan fun activities. Part of my solution for social studies lately has been Evan-Moor's History Pockets, so I wanted to share a bit about them with you!

Christmas Around the World

Christmas Around the World

Somehow, there's less than a month left until Christmas. I'm not sure how it happened so quickly, but I know that that month is going to go by in about 17 hours, so it's time to get some planning done now to make sure we have some educational fun along the way!
