Summer vacation does not have to mean a vacation from reading!

This post is a bittersweet one for me to write, as it is my last Adventures in Homeschooling post for the MetroFamily Magazine website.
First Folio

First Folio

If you've read this blog much over the years, you know I love to add in field trips to different places and events around the state to go along with what we're learning about at home. This is really easy to do when kids are young and learning about a huge variety of topics, but as they get older and their studies are more focused, it seems a little more difficult. January brings a really unique and exciting opportunity that may work really well for your older kids.

Brave Writer

This week I want to share with you a bit about Brave Writer, where you can spend time and money, but, like Read Aloud Revival, you don't have to. You can still come away refreshed and ready to jump into new things with your kids!
Read Aloud Revival

Read Aloud Revival

I've always been a huge read aloud fan. My best memories of school are listening to my second and fifth grade teachers read aloud each day after lunch.

Storybook Art

Storybook Art

One of my favorite resources is Storybook Art by MaryAnn F. Kohl and Jean Potter. This book is full of art projects for kids based on 100 picture book illustrators. Yes, you can go on to Pinterest and find book-based art projects, but I've used this book for years and I think there are several advantages to it.
Living Books: Math

Living Books: Math

This week I want to share with you about living books for math! Most kids enjoy these books, but they're especially great for kids who might need a story to help them focus or those who need a more in-depth explanation of a concept. These kinds of books are plentiful for younger learners, but there are also good ones out there for older kids, too!

OKC Kids Giving Back

We love providing volunteer opportunities to Oklahoma City metro families because we know how much children and their parents benefit from giving back to their community. Here are two incredible local kids who have gone above and beyond in sharing their time and talents with others.

10 Ways to Give Back This Season

Oklahomans are never short on compassion and our giving spirit always shines bright. Even with the busyness of the holidays, the outpouring to those in need is at its highest this time of year. What many call the Oklahoma Standard has been handed down with each generation, whether by necessity when faced with tragedy or simply inspired by others. Here are 10 ways your family can continue the tradition.
