Wild West Books, Crafts, and Activities to Have a Rootin’ Tootin’ Good Time!

It’s time for Poppins Book Nook! This month’s theme was Wild West.  Unfortunately, we’ve experienced a death in our family that has prevented me from being fully prepared to share our western themed activity today. Instead I’ve compiled a nice list of fun wild west crafts, recipes, activities, and more for preschoolers and early elementary aged […]

I is for Isaac

Do you like looking at pictures? Pictures give a snap shot of what was happening at a particular time. Today we are going to look at Isaac. There is not that much detail on Isaac’s life but we do have a few highlights. In this Bible study, we will be looking at the photo album […]

Reasons to Use a Boxed Preschool Curriculum

About a year and a half ago I left our trusted boxed curriculum behind for my older two children for a variety of reasons.  It was what was best for our family and has worked out rather nicely. I have no plans at this point to return to the tidy all-in-one boxes for them. However, […]

H is for Holy Spirit

Teaching children about the Holy Spirit isn’t easy. I don’t think anyone will fully understand until we ask God in heaven, but I did the best I could. I broke our lesson into three parts: Who, How, What. This made it easy for them to learn and as they get older, I can fill in […]

Curriculum Chat: What We’re Using for the 2014-2015 School Year

I’m a little late to the ballgame this year when it comes to sharing about what curriculum is lining our school shelves this year, but better late than never, right? We didn’t start school until Sept. 3rd so we’re only one week into our new year. There is something new and exciting about our homeschool […]

F is for Flood{Learning about Noah’s Ark and a FREE Printable Mini Book}

The biblical account of Noah can be taught in a variety of ways. There are so many lessons to learn from this man of faith and the story of God’s mercy through the ark that it’s hard to narrow it down. I decided to create a printable mini book for young children to color and […]

Classical Music for Children: Resources for Young Ages

When I was a child, I was mostly exposed to classic R&B music.  As I got older, I tended to follow the popular movements of my teen years (*NSync, anyone?) but I eventually grew tired of the often meaningless lyrics, repetitive tunes, and synthesized voices. I started branching out and exploring other venues. One day, […]
