Fun Homeschooling Stuff

I was thinking of how my kids LOVE the song The Wheels on The Bus. So for our youngest son, who still needs to learn his animals and what sounds they make, we came up with a fun song to the same tune.

You name the animal, their sound, and then end with "for forty days and nights."

So one stanza would look like this:

The pigs on the ark go oink oink oink, oink oink oink, oink oink oink,
The pigs on the ark go oink oink oink, for forty days and nights.


"The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterward." - Anatole France


Here is a link for soap made without lye (lye free) that the kids can make! Ther ingredients are: Grated pure olive oil soap (If purchasing, use castile soap for your grated soap), distilled water or rainwater, powdered goats milk, cocoabutter (melted), lavender buds and Lavender essential oil! :)


I have found a great page with free printable Bible verse copywork! These are so hard to find! Copywork and dictation are so important. I am so excited about doing more copywork with the girls. Anyone have ideas on how to excite them about dictation?
