    Tracking Our Reading – Adult & Kids Reading Journals

    I have been using Good Reads to track my books for years but this last year I’ve really come to realize how much I like a physical record of the books I’ve read. So, I did what I do; I made myself a reading journal. I started using it and then quickly realized I really wanted my kids to have reading journals too!     Keeping a reading journal as an adult is fun but I keep thinking how cool it would be if I had one from when I was a kid.

    Free Father’s Day Printable

Now they are getting older and the answers to their questions aren’t as cute and funny as they used to be. So, this year I decided to create an alternative Father’s Day printable. The one I created has some prompts and then room to either write or draw (or both!) their answer. I would love to show their final (adorable) results here but I’ll refrain in case their father hops over and sees…

    our SUMMER HOMESCHOOL PLAN & a look inside the units we’ll be studying

    We tend to be flexible in our homeschool and don’t “do school” five days a week. Our more laidback homeschool approach means that we are also never really “off”. So while the summers may look a little different, we are still learning. And this summer we have a couple of different studies we plan on doing. Okay, here’s a look inside our summer homeschool plans for this year!       LINKS The Explorers Research Unit is 50% off until June 2nd! And the Forces and Movement Study is on sale until June 15th! The Kids Reading Journal and A Line a Day Journals are also on sale until June…
