It’s been a minute! Planning a school year and re-working a website takes a lot of time! To go along with my website re-launch, I want to highlight a really fun new product in my store – a set of five (more to be added) historical science experiments to goContinue Reading

Daisy is beginning to get excited about some of the elementary works and wants to work with the same materials as Fungirl. Because we’re at home, we’re making that work. A few days ago I had an idea that I wanted to get her started on the unit division board.Continue Reading

We’ve been exploring Ancient Greece for about three weeks now. The kids have been so into the mythology and the hero stories we haven’t covered much else besides the geometry and mathematicians. And that’s OK, the mythology, Iliad, and Odyssey are so huge to the foundation of the civilization thatContinue Reading

We’ve been doing a little bit of geology around here – just a smattering here and there. We did a little rock identification at the beach last week, and that inspired a more formal set up at home this week. My jumping off point was this rock identification flow chart.Continue Reading

Our last week focusing on Ancient Egypt! Six weeks has been a nice long time. It gave us time to have about two weeks to settle in, do a few low-key activities and gain the base knowledge we needed. We then had about weeks when our activities were all in!Continue Reading

Last week was a great kick-off to our Egypt topic. We kept everything fairly low-key, but this week our activities ramped up! Our second week focused on all the mythology. Funball LOVED the work this week! We made full use of a couple of drawing books from our homeschool teacher.Continue Reading

When I began introducing history, after teaching the Third Great Lesson, we began using Pandia Press’ product, History Quest Early Times (HQET). We got started and found it ok – fun to take along to the park and listen to, but not very engaging activity-wise. This post contains affiliate links,Continue Reading

We’ve had an uninspired few weeks around here. Left goes through seasons, and Funball was in a season of push back, everything was boring, she’d done it all before, nothing was ever exciting. So, we re-group. We ended up ditching a writing project that wasn’t going anywhere, a few assignmentsContinue Reading
