Today’s Featured Curriculum:

Each day I’m featuring, and giving away, some great curriculum as a big thank you for supporting my blog! Today I’m highlighting my scientist units as well as my literature units.

 

World’s Greatest Scientists Vol 1

scientistsBinder

This series is all about famous Scientists & Inventors! As usual each study includes fun hands-on activities to go along with the unit to help students remember what they’ve learned, and also provide them with a fun reference too to review and recall each person they’ve learned about.

Each of my scientist & inventor unit studies contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the study. The lessons also include book reports, vocabulary, character traits of these important figures, major inventions and contributions, as well as some critical thinking skills. Units can be purchased individually or as a Scientist & Inventor Mega Pack. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can easily be adapted for older students as well.

Scientists and Inventors included in the combo pack:

  • Albert Einstein
  • Alexander Graham Bell
  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Henry Ford
  • Marie Curie
  • Thomas Edison
  • The Wright Brothers

Classic Literature Units Vol. 1, Vol. 2, & Vol. 3

classiclitBinder

The Classical literature Unit studies are a great way to read through the classics, and have a great review tool when you’re done!

Each unit study contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the book. They also include book reports, vocabulary, critical thinking, story timelines, and comprehension. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

I really designed these units to be a fun addition to reading the classics. I didn’t want them to be too stressful for myself or my kiddos, but instead give them something fun to do along with the stories to help them remember what they’ve learned in a fun hands-on way. The lap books included are wonderful for reviewing subject matter, and a great creative interactive homeschooling tool.

The units also include forms for predicting story plots, character analysis, identifying the protagonist and antagonist, a story timeline, and a final book report on the novel.

Here are the current units available, they can be purchased individually or as a bundle:

What is included in Volume 1:

  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Black Beauty
  • Charlotte’s Web
  • The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle

Quilted Zipper Pouch Sewing Tutorial

quiltedpouch1.jpg

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen this adorable little zipper pouch. It’s really easy to make, and I had a ton or requests for a tutorial! Just because pictures can be difficult to tell size, this is a smaller pouch that I use for my hand quilting supplies. It measures about 5” wide x 5” long x 4” high. I keep small thread scissors, quilting thread, needles, and a couple of Clover wonder clips in here. That way when I’m working on binding a quilt, or need to do a little hand quilting or embroidery on my projects I’m not hunting for supplies.   Ready to make one for yourself? Supplies: A zipper, I used a 22” polyester zipper mainly because that’s what size I could find in this cute green color. But just get one that’s a few inches longer than you want to make your bag. Fabric for bag: 2 pieces 10” x 20” (One for outside, and one for lining. OR 4 approx 3” x 20” long scrap strips for the outside and 1 piece for the lining.) Fabric for … [Read more...]

K4 Kindergarten Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets

beginningmathsubt_promo.jpg

Good morning homeschoolers! I have a fun new addition to my K4 Kindergarten curriculum for you today! I had a request to add in some subtraction worksheets, so that’s exactly what I did! Introducing the Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets! We cut out each card, then had our Teeny Tot use paper clips to select the correct answer based on the items on each card.   --> Download the Kindergarten Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets here! <-- These are very basic subtraction problems to help introduce the concept. If your child is having a hard time with the subtraction process, use a manipulative to help them understand what is happening. I would choose anything that interests them such as goldfish, cheerios, matchbox cars, small animals, beads, etc. Have them count how many objects they see to start. Then have them take away the number of items subtracted on the card, then recount to see what they have left over. You can laminate these and students circle the … [Read more...]

FREE Thread Catcher Tutorial

IMG_1965web.jpg

Good morning! I hope you are all ready for a home economics lesson today because I’m sharing a tutorial for an easy thread catcher. My girls each made one for their new sewing machines and I made one too! So what is a thread catcher? It’s basically a super cute trash can with a weighted pin cushion on top. These hang nicely by your sewing machine and come in very  handy when it comes to keeping little pieces of thread, fabric contained. Plus you can quickly access your pins while sewing too. And who doesn’t need a cute little trashcan in their sewing room? This post got a tad long, but I wanted to give you as many details as I could. By the way, this is a great project for younger sewers! My girls (9 and 11) each made their own bags. I did cut the fabric for them, but they did the rest all on their own. Sound like fun? Let’s get started! --> Download a FREE printable pattern for the Thread Catcher <--   Supplies: Pins Rotary cutter Scissors mat … [Read more...]
