Lunch Ideas, Homeschool Record Keeping, Unit Studies, and More!
Considering using cloth diapers? Bo has used them for two and a half years. We have some tips on how to use cloth diapers with toddlers that are good to think about at the start of your cloth diaper journey.
Denise from Let’s Play Math has come up with a fun game that children can play this summer to keep those math skills and facts firmly in their minds. No summer slide here!
Cindy from Our Journey Westward has come up with the best dinosaur unit study I have ever seen. My daughters are into dinosaurs right now and would both really enjoy a summer study like that!
At the Curriculum Choice blog, Cindy has created an excellent collection of resources for making homeschool record keeping easy. We live in Texas and don’t have to keep a lot of records, but this is an invaluable post for anyone who lives in a more regulated state.
If you are looking for a fun art series to try this summer, Tricia from Hodgepodge has the easiest and most impressive summer art tutorial I’ve seen in a while. The piece the kids make could hang anywhere in an art gallery, hotel room, your living room, etc. Quite impressive!*****************
We are all about summer science (July will be all about STEM around here), so I really loved reading this summer science post from Tonia at The Sunny Patch.
We absolutely love retro video games. These retro games that I played as a child have hidden educational value.
Denise from Let’s Play Math has accumulated a HUGE list of online math resources for homeschoolers. There are eight pages FULL of references and useful sites.
Tonia from The Sunny Patch shares her tips for creating a peaceful bedtime even during unscheduled summer months. I agree with her tip on turning down lights. It makes a surprising difference.
Interested in becoming a year-round homeschooling family? Kris from Weird, Unsocalized Homeschoolers has just the post you need to read.
Lunches are hard for a lot of homeschooling families. Here are 10 lunch ideas kids can make without parental help.
