Welcome 2016


Like most people, you are probably thinking about the possibilities this new year holds.  Each new year can be like a clean slate, a chance to start fresh or a chance to improve on things from years past.  For homeschooling families, resolutions aren’t just about self though.  They tend to be all encompassing.  Self, home, our children, and their education… and overwhelming.   What changes, adjustments, or resolutions are you looking to make?

Upping the lesson plan game~ Not all curricula comes with pre-planned lesson plans so we have to write out our own.  There are a lot of different ways to go about this and can take time to find a system that works for you.  Here are a few ideas found on Pinterest:

Printable Weekly Lesson Planner you can find {Here}.


{Here} is a link to the “Ultimate Free Homeschool Planning List”.

If you are wanting a more simple method (or one that doesn’t require stock in printer ink), {Here} is a blog post about using spiral notebooks.

Jen at Forever, For Always created a {Document}  to help organize what grade her children are in for each subject.  This would be helpful for large  homeschool families.

From {Binders} to purchased planners, this post could go on and on.  Share with us how you manage your lesson plans!


Schooling Christmas Style

Kids can’t help but be excited about Christmas so why not take enthusiasm and direct it towards your school day!  Here are some ideas found on Pinterest…

Turn your Christmas baking into a Math Lesson using {these} worksheets from Learning Zone Express.


Learn some Geography while talking about {Christmas around the world}.



{Science Sparks} has page full of Christmas themed Science experiments.


For Literature, {here} is a printable Advent reading plan (source).


For a complete school day,  there different activities found {here} to go along with the movie The Polar Express!  I saw vocabulary words, a crossword puzzle, word search, math problems, and a cute Letter to Santa printable (those were all free to download, but I didn’t click all the links so there could be some items that cost).
