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!
"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 :)
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!
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.
Marco Polo's Silk Road Game
My son loved the game. Such a fun way to make the learning real. Thanks so much.
What a fantastic resource!! So glad I bought it and have used it in doing a mini-unit! I can't explain how wonderful, useful, helpful, creative, and reuseable this fantastic product is! We love playing the bingo game and the kid's knowledge has increased. This has helped me in planning and delivery and the kids loved using the charts and task cards. It took us away from dull and a not so informative book but we learned so much more!! Thanks!!!
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!
