I love to add different things to circle time. I love to be able to use audio with the kids while we are working on other things and sometimes just to sit and listen to. I was really excited when the review came up for Wizzy Gizmo. We were sent a cd copy of Audio Drama One: Who Created Everything?, which takes listeners on a amazing adventure through the first chapter of the Bible.
It’s back to school time, and for homeschool families – that means gathering curriculum, planning and finding new ways to inspire kids in their studies. SKrafty Homeschool Minecraft is the perfect way to add the fun and inspiration you need.
This fall, the class line up is spectacular! If you need homeschool math, science, bible, history, language arts or more . . . you are in for a treat. Using some of your favorite homeschool curriculum companies (including Apologia Science, Mystery of History, and A+ Interactive Math) you’ll learn to incorporate Minecraft projects into your family homeschool.
Our first week of school we have been easing into slowly. We have had doctor appointments disrupt our day as they seem to fall smack in the middle of our day. We had a couple full days under our belt. I am not sweating it as I want the kids to be able to enjoy the weather yet before it is to cold for us to enjoy.
Last week kicked off our first Field Trip Friday. We ventured out to places we haven’t been to before and even learned some history about the area we live in. Amazing facts and I can’t wait to share it with you in another blog post.
Does your child need more work on certain areas in math? Mathletics is an online math e-learning resource from 3P Learning. Mathletics provides a safe and secure, and engaging world for students in K – 12. We received a full year subscription for two students. I used this with both Brittany and Dakota.
There is 7 key points to Mathletics: engage, target, diagnose, assess, report, fluency, and mobile. I will break this down for you so that you can understand what it’s all about.
Have you ever wanted to create your own unit study? I have created a couple unit studies in the past for the kids. I wasn’t sure what to all put in and felt maybe something was missing. I also wondered what do the kids need to master in each grade. Hewitt Homeschooling has a wonderful teacher resource called Joy of Discovery and Learning Objectives for Grades K – 8. I feel truly blessed to have had the chance to review this as now I know the direction to go and feel a lot more confident in creating unit studies.
