I’ve always loved to draw. Somewhere along the way, I decided I wasn’t good at it because I couldn’t do very realistic drawings or draw people that looked like the people I was trying to draw, so I quit. Homeschooling my children has given me a great opportunity to try different art forms and get back into art. One art program I was given the opportunity to review lately is Beyond the Stick Figure by Sally Stansfield.
Giving your child a strong start in reading begins with phonemic awareness. You might wonder, “What exactly is phonemic awareness?” …
Through the years, we’ve really enjoyed using games in our homeschooling. There are so many games available that work perfectly to teach a variety of skills and subjects- math, spelling, language, team skills, strategy, logic, and the list could go on. Of course, there are Scrabble and Pictionary which are great for spelling and vocabulary. Uno is probably one of the best for teaching young children colors and numbers.
Here are some of my favorite preschool programs. Do I think a preschool program is necessary? No, I don’t. Read, play, read some more, go outside (probably one of the most important things you can do), and above all, point your child to Jesus. Don’t be over-eager to push academics. You can never redo these days.
If you need to keep record of the days you do school throughout the year, these cute school attendance calendars are an easy way to do that.
Here’s a Free April Nature Calendar. I hope you enjoy these ideas to interact with nature.
We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground, but we know spring is just around the corner.
We’ve been making maple syrup. I owe a huge thanks
