I help parents, teachers, and homeschoolers give children a life-long love of learning.
I love providing hands-on and engaging learning activities, ideas, games, and printables, with an emphasis on great books.
Life is more fun if you play games!
Which of these categories is what you need?
Hands-on Learning Ideas
"I need to keep learners engaged with hands-on activities and memorable lessons. I can always use more ideas!"
"I want help as I start homeschooling and inspiration to keep me going as a homeschool parent."
Creative Games & Printables
"I want to save time by purchasing games, worksheets, or other activities already created. No need to reinvent the wheel!
Animal Tracks Activities
I used these discovery resources during my summer school STEAM class! Being from Tennessee with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in our backyards, my students latched onto this content and excelled! They loved how you gamified some of the resources but also allowed them to practice math and science skills! Thank you so much!
Marco Polo's Silk Road Game
My son loved the game. Such a fun way to make the learning real. Thanks so much.
"Keep up the good work"
Have been keeping up with your blog for over a year and you're always writing up some great posts. . . . Keep up the good work :)
Love this post about unschooling science! As a former elementary school teacher, I feel like my science exploration with my students was pretty weak. Sadly, there wasn't an emphasis put on it due to standardized testing. Now, as a homeschool mom, I let my kids take the lead. We go off of their interests. I would rather instill a love for learning at this young age than adopt a curriculum to use.
Layers of the Atmosphere
I'm going to do this Layers of the Atmosphere lab for my biology final. I have to teach the class about the composition of the atmosphere and then do a lab with them and I think this lab is perfect. Thank you so much!
Author's Purpose Task Cards
I like the different examples that are given and some of the examples really make students think about which Author's Purpose it is.
Yes, You CAN
You CAN gain the confidence you need to start homeschooling.
Let go of your worries because the "I could never"s about homeschooling are only myths!
