Happy Sunday y’all! I hope you’ve had an amazing weekend! We are super excited to restart this popular series to share our favorite homeschool resources for the week. It will include timely homeschool ideas, encouragement, and freebies from the past week as well as fun crafts, experiments, and recipes you might want to try this next week!
My oldest two boys are in college, and both were home this weekend … but they have been so busy studying for mid-terms that we hardly got to even see each other! The good news is, that gave me time to go hunt for some great resources for you this weekend … Homeschool Resources I think you will love!
Great Homeschool Resources:
Some weeks are just filled with good content, and this is one of those weeks.
We know you love to find great, timely, relevant unit studies, especially when they are FREE, because I do too! So I’ll help you find them! Here are a couple we think are perfect for this week!
Fun Crafts and Experiments:
Are your leaves starting to change yet? If so, it is time to get creative with those beautiful colorful leaves.
And speaking of colorful leaves, here is an experiment that will help explain the changing of colors.
This time of year, candy and sweets seem to be hard to avoid. And, Girl, I love sweets as much as anyone… but I’m trying to NOT eat so much unhealthy stuff so I can lose some weight.
This week is feast time for us! If you were not aware, my family is Messianic, and this week is the week of Sukkot (Feast of Booths). Unfortunately, we don’t have a sukkah this year. My mother-in-law is living with us and she is blind, diabetic, and in a wheelchair, so needless to say, we can’t just leave her here alone. She has been very sick this weekend too. UPDATE: Hubby took her to the hospital Sunday Night and they think it is vertigo. Prayers appreciated that we get this cleared up.
If you are interested in learning more about Sukkot, watch this video:
If you are planning to go camping this fall, print out this recipe and take it with you! You will thank me later!
Getting in the Homeschool Groove:
Every year, the hardest part for us has always been finding our homeschool rhythm. What works for my family might not work for you, so I’ve provided several different articles about schedules you might want to consider.
Rachael Carman is creating a fantastic Counter-Culture Character trait study. Each week she is covering a new trait and providing lots of homeschool resources for cultivating these characteristics!
Speaking of family, I thought I would start introducing you to the family. This is the one and only G. Gordon. I’ve never had a tuxedo kitty before and honestly, I still don’t. This is my hubby’s cat!! He is a man’s cat. Strong. Independent. Somewhat feral. This cat is the least lovey cat I’ve ever seen. Are all tuxedo cats like that?
Learning how to preserve fall leaves might even make the Leaf Creature craft above even more amazing!!
Most Popular Article this week:
Our friend Erin Vincent wrote this humorous article about how Homeschooling is Easier Than Keeping Houseplants Alive. I personally can vouch for this one because I do not have a green thumb!
Great Deals I Found This Weekend:
If you love saving money, be sure to join the Hip Frugal Mom’s Facebook Group for daily deals. And don’t forget to turn on all notifications for that group.
Finally, If you are like me, my hair is not the top priority these days. So having a bad-hair-day baseball cap is considered a necessary homeschool resource in my book! If you haven’t found Homeschool Style yet, you are going to love their products. Here is my current favorite cap!
Let me know how I’m doing. Comment below and let me know which of these homeschool resources is your favorite. If you have one you want me to share next week, please reach out to us on Facebook. Until next week…
