Our family is learning Proverbs 4:23. My friend Jen writes at Jen’s New Song and has decided to make scripture memorization a focus for her family this year and will be sharing her KJV printables on her blog as she makes them for her family.  That’s a bonus for me. We have a display book […]

Little Passports and a Brigadeiro Recipe

We signed up for Little Passports this past summer. I’d read good things about it. My children love to get mail and I was tired of Chirp magazine. Our first box contained a welcome letter from Sam and Sofia, the friends who go on international adventures and send us souvenirs, post cards and more each […]

Review: A Grain of Rice by Helena Clare Pittman

Posted by Jennifer under Books, Homeschooling, Teaching Tots (No Respond)

We use Sonlight in our homeschool. Their educational approach to learning through books is a good fit for our family in this season. Something that I love about their books is that it’s not just the children who enjoy them, I do too! I would definitely add A Grain of Rice by Helena Clare Pittman […]

DIY Magnetic Map of the World

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Keeper of Home, Teaching Tots (3 Responds)

  Last summer we bought a map for about $7 at Costco. It’s pretty big, it’s poster-like but lightly laminated if that makes sense. Wipeable, I guess you could say. I didn’t want to…well….tape it onto the wall like I did with posters when I was 13 so I toyed with finding a frame for […]

Once Upon A Homeschooling June Day

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Just Life (4 Responds)

We’re still full on doing school. I think I mentioned that with all the appointments and such this past year, we took many days “off” and thus will be schooling through the summer. No worries though. Beautiful days, parks, good stories; the tots and mama enjoy it. Sure, we have some bookwork here and there […]

Pop Bottle Birdhouse Craft

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Teaching Tots (1 Respond)

The tots got a magazine from McDonalds a while back that had a pop bottle birdhouse craft in it. Since moving here last spring and hanging up our first ever feeder, our family has become bird watchers. The tots love, love, love watching the birds come to the feeder and trying to identify them. But […]

Teaching Our Children the Alphabet

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling (No Respond)

Yesterday my husband and I were talking in the evening about the children’s education, goals for the year and past accomplishments. Back in 2010 I admitted to you that Chloe didn’t know the alphabet. Now it is still a fact that Chloe (who is 5 and will be 6 in the new year) does not […]
