Happy Thanksgiving, US readers! For this week’s homeschool inspiration, I’ve assembled a collection of Thanksgiving-related links.
But since the big day is upon us tomorrow, I’ve tried to stick with simple ideas your family might enjoy that won’t take a ton of time–in case you also happen to be baking pies or prepping the turkey!
So enjoy this week’s homeschool inspiration. I’m thankful for you!
- Free Thanksgiving hymn puzzle hunt :: From contributor Jamerrill Stewart of Free Homeschool Deals
- 10 free Thanksgiving coloring pages :: Saving by Design
- Voyage on the Mayflower :: Scholastic
- Thanksgiving interactive – You are the historian :: Plimouth Plantation
- Four free audio stories for Thanksgiving :: Sparkle Stories
My recommendations this week:
If you’d like to introduce more classical music to your kids and homeschool, definitely check out this series of CDs (also available as downloads). The compelling tales are set to the music of the composer, who features as a character in the story as well.
I know it’s not yet Thanksgiving, & I’m not usually one to jump ahead, BUT the kids and I are super-excited about this Christmas music discovery. And since it’s #1 in albums on Amazon, I guess I’m not the only one enjoying it!
Featured sponsors this week:
The Christopherus Curriculum translates the Waldorf educational philosophy (originally designed for a school setting) into an inspiring homeschool method, with curricula for grades 1-5 and materials for 6-8 as well. I loved Donna’s Kindergarten guide when my kids were younger!
All About Reading/All About Spelling uses a multi-sensory approach with plenty of hands-on activities and “open & go” lesson plans for you as a homeschool teacher. They offer a full year’s money-back guarantee, too!
“The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.” ~ H.U. Westermayer
