The Wind in the Willows Unit Study

IMG_0504web.jpg

Hi everyone! I have a brand new Classic Literature Unit Study for you today!   Introducing The Wind in the Willows Unit Study & Lapbook The Wind in the Willows is a cute story about Toad, mole, Rat, and Badger, four great pals who live in the country. Students reading this story will join along in a fun adventure where the friends set out on an adventure, get into mischief, come up with inventive schemes of getting  out of said trouble, defend one another, and share an enduring friendship that rises above species!   For this unit I am using the Classic Starts The Wind in the Willows version. I find the Classic Starts a little easier for younger readers, but you could certainly use this unit with the original version if you have an older student. The assignments are written to go with the Classic Starts edition, but the concepts are the same, so you should be able to complete the lapbook using any version you choose.   Watch a video of The … [Read more...]

DK Educational Books

052web.jpg

We’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing some great educational resources from DK Publishing. They offer some really cool educational books that are great for supplementing your homeschooling.   One of the books we received was “How to be a Genius”. This book covers all kinds of things about the brain, different functions it performs, states of your brain, and also has cool games, quizzes, puzzles, brain teasers, and more.   The Smithsonian Knowledge Encyclopedia was the other one. This one was probably my favorite. It is divided into 6 chapters – Space, Earth, Nature, Human Body, Science,& Technology, and History & Culture. It also includes a helpful reference section. As usual with the DK books, it’s full of colorful pictures as well which my kiddos love! And this one includes all kinds of fascinating facts, maps, & timelines. Now as a Christian blogger I feel compelled to mention that this book is written from an evolutionary standpoint. For … [Read more...]
