Ant Unit Study Resources

{this post contains affiliate links} Recently I discovered this great free resource over at The Homeschool Belle that uses The Magic School Bus DVDs as a base for a science curriculum.  After looking it over and another similar resource at Water on the Floor, I decided that I wanted to marry the two together and add in […]

W is for Welcome to a New School Year!

*this post contains affiliate links*I mentioned in my preschool week in review post that we had started our new school year.   We have now officially completed our first full two weeks!

Homeschool Week in Review: The One with the Dandelions and the Trail

We finished up our Spring Surprises unit study this week and the kids were sad to see it go.  My oldest said, “You mean spring school is over?” with a rather pathetic looking pout on her face.  But, alas, we have to get back to the grind and finish up our regular curriculum before baby […]

Homeschool Week in Review: The One Where We Celebrated the Arrival of Spring!

We had a great time this week using Amanda Bennett’s Spring Surprises unit study. I really enjoy these unit studies.  They are a nice break from the regular daily things that we use.  I am always surprised at the things that Amanda Bennett finds to incorporate into the subject.   So far this week, we’ve studied […]

When we were out of town visiting my mom unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago, I decided to shelve our regular curriculum for the week and take something with us that was relatively simple and didn’t require a ton of extra books. I turned to Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett Download N Go series.  If […]

One of my favorite […]

Homeschool Week in Review–The One that Got a Little Squirmy

We have reached the final week of our Gardens unit study and I have to say, we are a little sad to see it all wrapped up! We adore our regular curriculum, but this unit study has been nothing but enjoyable for all of us (well, except for one of us).We’ve learned about everything from […]

Homeschool Week in Review—The One that Grew Sprouts

Another busy week amidst the call of spring fever! 🙂 We did manage did get most of our planned school work for the week completed, but between the outdoors calling us and a nasty (but brief!) virus that seemed to travel like lightning through all five of us(but of course not at the same time) […]
