I am a homeschooling mom of three beautiful children.  I am also single!  The mind reels at how that could possibly work.  The answer is prayer!  I also don’t spend a ton of money on curriculum.  The internet and library are full of countless free sources for ideas and information and I thought I would share my compilations as we move through various units.  I hope that it is helpful to someone out there!

Stay tuned…I am working on a Thanksgiving unit now.  Already this year, we have completed units on China and Egypt and I will be posting about them as well.

For now:  Here are a few quick resources for a small unit study on the Reformation.  (FYI:  October 31 is the day that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis to the door of the church.)

Grace Fellowship Church — Good information in a blog format.  http://www.gfcto.com/2006/04/martin_luther_and_reformation.php

The Holiday Zone — More good information in an upper elementary format.  I especially like some of the ideas on art projects.http://www.theholidayzone.com/reformation/index.html

Word of His Grace — Another very well written blog.  This post is called:  The Halloween That Changed the World — Reformation Day.http://www.wordofhisgrace.org/halloweenorreformationday.htm

Crosswalk.com — This one offers a fresh view of jack-o-lanterns…luther lanterns!     http://www.crosswalk.com/1073226/

SundaySchoolLessons.com — This is a very easy to read source of information for your early readers.  It talks about Martin Luther and the Lutheran church.  http://www.sundayschoollessons.com/refday.htm

And just for fun…this link is to a YouTube video for the acapella version of “A Mighty Fortress” (otherwise known as the The Battle Hymn of the Reformation.)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk8U58vfOoc&NR=1
