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!
Guess the Explorer
Such a fun way to learn about the history of voyagers. The kids loved playing guess who!!
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.
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.
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 :)
Spanish -ar Verb Conjugations
This was a fun resource to use as my students were learning verb conjugations. It saved me from having to create something on my own.
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!
