Here is a February: Nature Day by Day Calendar for you. I had a lot of fun finding nature activities to put on there and we’ve already enjoyed doing some of them. I find that if you embrace the season you are in, you will spend less time wishing for the next one.
Make learning fun with these printable history games. Your students won’t even know they’re learning! Contains over a dozen games that can be printed out and used to enhance your study of United States History.
I’ve enjoyed the Nature calendars in the book Natural Science Through the Seasons: 100 Teaching Units by J.A. Partridge. Inspired by the beautiful calendar this talented blogger made, I decided to redo the calendar for January nature calendar.
In an effort to spend more time with my little girl and less on the computer, I hand drew the whole thing so forgive the slightly crooked lines. I’m not going to pretend that mine is half as good as the one the other blogger did for October, but I’m sharing anyway.
If you’re opening a Teachers Pay Teachers store you may be asking yourself, “Is a Teachers Pay Teachers Premium Seller Account worth it?” I know I did. Or if you’ve had a store for a while, you might be asking yourself, “Should I upgrade to a Premium Seller account?”
Especially if you haven’t made a lot of money, it’s hard to pay the almost sixty dollars to upgrade. (It was for me.)
Which is better for sellers: Teachers Pay Teachers or Educents?
That’s the question I’ve been trying to answer the last few months. Is it better to sell my educational games on Teachers Pay Teachers or Educents?
I love Sally Clarkson’s writings. She always encourages me to love my family more intentionally, more patiently, more joyfully– and her newest book, The Lifegiving Table was no different.
Even before I was finished reading the introduction, I was reminded that no matter what my parenting views or methods, having a relationship with my children is one of the most important things that I can do. I see that now ever more clearly that most of my children are teens or close to teens.
I was drawn to the title of this book- Women Who Move Mountains: praying with confidence boldness and grace. Who doesn’t want to pray with more confidence and boldness? I know prayer is a key in my success as a wife and mother, so I am always glad for encouragement in that area.
My toddler is at the stage where she loves asking and answering questions. It’s one of her favorite pastimes, and it’s a great learning tool. She also has been trying to play her older brother’s Fidget Spinner State Game, so I decided to created a fun, free toddler sorting activity for her that would use a fidget spinner as a timer.
We’ve been studying the Civil War lately. Here are some of the resources we’ve used. My boys are ages nine to sixteen so the resources span a wide age range. War is obviously a violent time in history and the Civil War especially so. The casualties caused by the Civil War easily outrank any other war that America has been part of.
My daughter loves to be read to. It’s one of her favorite things to do. That’s why I was delighted to come across the new children’s book, Your Magnificent Chooser by John Ortberg.
Your Magnificent Chooser is a beautiful book with delightful illustrations and rhyming text (it reminds me of Dr. Seuss).
