52 Fabulous Field Trips: One For Each Week of the Year (The Christian Homeschool Collection)

Janice Thompson

Price: FREE

Join author and homeschool mom Janice Hanna Thompson as she leads you on 52 exciting field trips. Each trip is loaded with tips for every academic subject.

Why field trips? They provide an excellent way to teach! They offer students a break from the “hum-drumness” of the daily grind and offer teachers a new and refreshing way to approach “ordinary” places in an “extraordinary” way.

It’s all about creativity! Getting “out of the box” is the goal. Once you’ve done that, nearly ANY place can become a field trip possibility. You’ll be surprised at how many academic subjects can be covered on a simple outing to the park or the airport. You’ll be stunned at students’ writings when you provide them with a new point of view.

This book is intended to be a spring-board, offering basic ideas for places to go and things to do. Use your creativity skills to take these exercises a step further, if you like. Shape them to suit your own personal needs or the needs of your students.

Easy Homeschooling Techniques and Curriculum Studies

Easy Homeschooling Techniques and Curriculum Studies

Denise Dobson

Price: FREE

The curriculum is all bought and organized in your classroom and shelves. Your supplies are in order and your lessons plans are ready, just waiting to be used. But, have you considered (I mean really considered) what an actual school day in your home will look like?

Will you work from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.? Will you take Wednesdays off for a co-op or field trips? How will you juggle housework, errands, work and smaller children around your children’s schoolwork? Will you allow yourselves breaks throughout the day or dig in and get your schoolwork done as quickly and efficiently as possible? I bet you didn’t know there were so many questions to answer regarding how your actual day will be spent.

Homeschooling isn’t just a way of educating your children – it is a lifestyle. Establishing a workable school day is not just about figuring out when to teach what subjects. It is about organizing your entire life and household to accommodate and encourage the learning process.

The sooner you realize that your homeschool journey will change the way you handle everything else around your home, the easier it will be to establish a schedule that will allow your days to unfold effortlessly – or at least with minimal distractions and chaos.

Memorize 50 States Geography: On My Way Across The United States

Julie Schultz

Price: FREE

This delightful tour of the United States uses rhymed verse to help children remember the two-letter abbreviations for the states. The states and regions are illustrated with striking and playful collages, which could be stand-alone prints for a child’s room or a classroom.

Arthur W. Glowka

This picture book is part of a larger differentiated lesson based on the theory of Multiple Intelligences. A song, meaningful gestures, and creative visuals are used to help students build schema associated with geography and to create lasting associations which will linger long after the story fades. On My Way Across the United States is a picture book designed to both entertain and teach the geography of The United States. Burk the Turkey wants to be the nation’s official bird, so he takes a whimsical journey across The United States. Each person he meets and place he visits helps him learn geography. Scrapbooking techniques and modeling clay were used in the creation of this book. The author and illustrator, Dr. Julie Schultz, is Associate Professor of Education at Reinhardt University in North Georgia. She works with Early Childhood Education Majors.
