My recommendations this week:
Recently I noticed one child of mine pulling away slightly. Thankfully I knew exactly what to do thanks to THIS book, which has helped me understand my growing kids in new ways.
With us in the kids’ backpacks during our big trip are these travel journals–the same ones we’ve toted around the world now. I love the writing prompts that help overcome their fear of the blank page!
If you’d like to introduce your kids to sewing, this book has been a tried-and-true favorite of ours for years now! For non-sewers like myself, it’s so simple & well-designed that kids over age 8 can basically figure it out on their own.
Featured sponsors this week:
Do you have a science lover in your homeschool…or would you like to inspire one?
Take a look at the offerings from Home Science Tools for entry-level (yet high quality) microscopes, starter science kits, and chemistry/physics supplies for older ages.
Are you trying to implement the Waldorf homeschooling method in your home? If so, take a peek at Christopherus Homeschool Resources, which translates the traditional Steiner curriculum into a homeschool-friendly format.
I absolutely loved Donna’s Kindergarten guide when my kiddos were younger!
