Making the change from our old online planner to Homeschool Planet planner. It is so much easier to plan with. I was able to get the rest of our school year planned out today and now can enjoy the next two weeks off during our Christmas break!! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolplanning #homeschoolplanet #homeschoolplanner
It’s almost Christmas break here but we are finishing up a few things before next week. We decided to do school in the living room this week! The boys were both working on Science, making a drawing for potential energy and kinetic energy. I am loving this curriculum and how much the boys are actually retaining!!! #homeschool #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschoolscience #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom #homeschoolers
We are all cozied up under blankets watching Christmas movies! Love this time of year!!
What we’re reading. I figured my boys would be really interested in the BFG but they don’t really like it. Instead they are loving the Daniel Boone book. #homeschool #homeschoolreading #homeschoolers #homeschoolingboys
Today during History we learned about the Mycenaeans in Greece. We made shields like they used in fights. Austin choose to make his with scissors on it and Dylan made his with a monster on it to scare them away! #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #homeschoolstoryoftheworld #homeschoolingboys
Today turned into a carpentry type of day. They decided to build houses and bridges. Learning on the weekend! #homeschool #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolers #homeschoolwoodwork #homeschoolcarpentry
I’ve declared today Christmas movie day! We are starting by watching Disney’s, A Christmas Carol.
Bonfire with friends tonight
The house is decorated for Christmas!! It’s nice and cozy in here!! I love this time of year!! #christmas #christmasdecor #holidaydecor #farmhousechristmas
Through the eyes of a child. Both of my boys have enjoyed time laying under our tree looking up at the lights. We got our house half decorated today and will get the rest done tomorrow. We are enjoying watching movies by Christmas tree light. 🎄
Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope you all have an amazing day with lots of good food and family!!
One other thing I am loving about this science is our Science Wall!! It includes our vocabulary words and types of energy now. We will add more as we continue lessons. It makes for easy reviewing of topics we have covered. One last science post for a bit lol #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschool #homeschoolers #homeschoolmom #homeschoolscience
My boys learned about atoms and molecules today. Loved the hands on activity which really made learning fun and information stick!! We are loving Science now!!! #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschool #homeschoolscience #homeschoolers #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys
Another Christmas decoration done. I hand painted the lettering and trees. I can’t wait to decorate this weekend!!!
Started our new Science today. It went really good and they enjoyed it!! I like the hands on approach to this curriculum much better than what we had been using. Today they learned what energy is and how things in our house and outside use energy. They also created the covers to their Science journals. #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschool #homeschoolscience #homeschoolers #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys
I am so excited to be starting a new Science program with my boys. Our other one wasn’t quite working for us so we are trying the #thegoodandthebeautiful science curriculum. We decided to start with Intro to Energy and Meteorology. The quality of these books is amazing and how in depth they get is even better!! I think we have definitely found a winner science curriculum @thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschool #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschoolscience #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys
Two more decorations done for our new Christmas decor this year!!
Working on some new Christmas decorations for our house this year. This is our new stocking hanger. It says merry and bright. I painted the wood to look rustic and old. It started out as natural looking brand new wood. I’m impressed with it!! Just have to add a few nails to hang the stockings on and it’ll be done!! More to come as Christmas decorating time gets closer!!
Getting math done! We are using Saxon and Teaching Textbooks. Both of my kids like what they are using which makes math more enjoyable for all of us. #homeschool #homeschoolmath #teachingtextbooks #saxonmath #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom
This is how we start our day. Our morning work. Every day the boys learn a new vocabulary word and every week they memorize two states and capitals and two presidents. We review all that we have learned before that day as well. This is today’s morning work. #homeschool #homeschoolmorning #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom
Trying out a new math game. Both of my boys tried out Quick Math on the iPad today and both enjoyed it trying to beat their own times they set previously. It was fun to watch and they learned some too. #homeschool #homeschoolmath #homeschooler #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfun #homeschoolingboys
Working hard on their Animal Classification Unit Study! #homeschool #homeschoolscience #homeschoolers #homeschoolmom #homeschoolunitstudy
We started our poetry unit this month!! The boys wrote three Acrostic poems. Can I just say how proud I was to see my 4th grader use his word of the day Docile in his Acrostic poem. Then you have my 6th grader who insisted on using uncleaned for his U in his name. 😂 They really enjoyed making these and joking about different words they could use. Make sure you swipe to see all of their poems. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolwriting #homeschoolpoetry
Two very happy kids with way too much candy.
I’d say they are enjoying our new school schedule. It now includes recess/ breaks between subjects and they took full advantage of it today! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolbreak
Only one kiddo wanted to decorate pumpkins this year. This is his pumpkin.
My view as I finished the first pair of pajama pants for Christmas! Also the finished pants. A little long for room to grow over the next couple of months. My first project to sew on my own and I really enjoyed it!!
We started our Art through History today by drawing plants and learning how to shade. My oldest lost interest pretty quick but the youngest kept with it. So here is his finished drawing and mine is the last one. I had to have fun too!! #homeschool #homeschoolart #homeschooler #homeschoolmom
Decided I’m making the boys Christmas pajamas this year. So while I was buying fabric for a new tree skirt and stockings, I picked up some cute Christmas fabric for them. I’m so excited! They are going to be so cute!!
Getting that Grammar in one way or the other. Sit how you want as long as you get it read. That’s how we do it in this homeschool house. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschooler #homeschoollife #growingwithgrammar
Kids are gone so it’s just me and the hubs having a small fire and s’mores tonight.
We started his first piano lesson today. I am teaching him myself! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolpiano #pianolessons #homeschooler #homeschoolenrichment
After learning about the pyramids and the Sphinx today in History we followed up with The Sphinx documentary on Netflix. #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #homeschooler #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys
My boys started today with History and building pyramids. Our lesson was about pyramids and the Sphinx. I am really loving the Story of the World curriculum. After we read the boys talk and ask questions. They are much more engaged with History this year. #homeschool #storyoftheworldvol1 #homeschoolhistory #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom
Family time around the fire with s’mores. Listened to music and just relaxed together.
We finished reading Holes yesterday. Today we are watching the movie. I love hearing my boys compare the book and the movie. #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfun
Making a model of the Nile River for history. #homeschool #storyoftheworldvol1 #homeschoolhistory #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolers
This school year has been amazing so far. It's amazing how much better things can be when you pick the right curriculum. Here my boys are working hard on their Growing with Grammar and it's amazing!! I help them read through and understand their lesson and they are able to work independently through the workbook. #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoollanguagearts #growingwithgrammar #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom
Working on their cave paintings after we read through our history lesson on the Nomads. #homeschool #homeschoolers #homeschoolhistory #storyoftheworldvol1 #homeschoolingboys
Our history lesson today was about how archeologists helped discover history. Then we headed outside to be archaeologists ourselves. They found gems and dinosaurs. It was a great hit and they asked if we could do it again sometime. •Swipe• #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolhistory #storyoftheworldvol1
We are loving Teaching Textbooks. Austin has never liked math and the past 4 days he has asked to do math and said it is his favorite subject this year. So happy I chose this curriculum for him this year. #homeschool #homeschoolingboys #teachingtextbooks #homeschooler #homeschoolmath
Our First day of School!!! It went great and Austin even proclaimed he liked Math! Dylan enjoyed cursive! Once we were done we began reading Holes for our first book this year!! •Swipe• #homeschool #homeschoolers #firstdayofschool #homeschooling #homeschoolingboys #homeschool #teachingtextbooks
As much coverage as we will see through our glasses. It was amazing to see. #2017eclipse
Here's a sneak peek at our school room for the next year. Worked all day on getting it organized so I can post it on the blog later this week. We are now ready to start school in September. #homeschool #homeschoolroom #homeschoolingmom #homeschooler #homeschoolclassroom #schoolroom
Our Art curriculum this year. It goes along with our history. They will be learning how to draw certain things as we learn about them in History. #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoolart #homeschoolhistory
