For science, Ace and I are doing the Noeo Science Physics I curriculum. This curriculum was written specifically for homeschoolers, grades one through three. So far, we are enjoying it. It pulls together several different books both on science and biographies on scientists. This curriculum includes Young Scientist Club Kits for experiments. I really like […]
Since my third grader made a lapbook about Leif Erikson, my preschooler wanted to make a lapbook too. She totally designed this all by herself, (Act surprised!) because that’s what preschoolers like to do. Sometimes it’s just fun to let preschoolers do what preschoolers do, (other than when you have to clean up.)
It’s pretty […]
My third grader and I are doing the Early American History Study by Beautiful Feet. We just finished our first unit in the guide—Leif Erikson. We read the book, Leif the Lucky through two or three times, just because we enjoyed it so much. It’s not only well written, but has great illustrations, and that […]
Here is the third and last lapbook on Origins. This one is by Ace.
If you’d like to see the sources that we used for these mini-books please see my previous post. All of the writing in this lapbook was dictated to me by Ace, but he did all the fancy designing and coloring in […]
Here is the second lapbook on Origins. This one is by JD Boy.
If you’d like to see the sources that we used for these mini-books please see my previous post. JD Boy designed his own cover. JD wrote in some of his books and he dictated for me to write in some, but all […]
I decided that I’m going to share one lapbook a day from our origins study. We will start with my oldest’s lap book.
As you can see, washi tape was popular for this project. You will see it on all three lapbooks. The kids said they won’t use it again because it curls so bad, […]
We recently finished a unit on how life began. We had been studying ancient history for awhile, but had skipped over the prehistory sections, but I decided that for my older two children, in particular, it was time to address the theory of evolution. So we backed up and discussed some of the early chapters […]
G’tums was having trouble remembering which vowel made which sound, so we decided to do a little project that was fun and now he has them mastered.
We cut off the bottom of a file folder and glued in these little cards. He cut out and colored the clip art on the front which was […]
Our study of Native Americans was, of course, not comprehensive, but it was pretty broad. We went to one of our local libraries and just picked up a book on every tribe that we could find. Then we figured out that there was one particular series that we liked best, so we got the rest […]
At our home, we have been working on setting chapters of the Bible to memory. Three of my kids are old enough to memorize the Bible and are each working on different chapters. My oldest is learning 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter. My next child is learning The Beatitudes, or Happy Attitudes as he […]
