Giveaway!!!!

Hello!

This is the first time I’ve done this, and I am excited to share this opportunity with you.  RaisingHomemakers.com is giving away 6 Sally Clarkson books.  (You can register here.)  Sally Clarkson is a homeschooling mom and author and her books are a tremendous blessing.

Good Luck!

 

Oops!

We have been soooooo busy and now the school year is almost over. I will have to spend the summer catching up on this blog. 🙂 But, not today! Today, I’m hanging out at the Schoolhouse Expo Webinar. I am sooooo excited to be learning so much and connecting with homeschool parents outside of Nebraska.

Happy New Year!!!

Greetings and Salutations! I just wanted to drop by and say that I have not forgotten this blog. Not at all! Instead, I have been busy compiling more and more material to share with you! Be on the look out for ideas in studying China and Cambodia and Christmas Around the World (I know its a little late, but it will be here in time for next year. 😉 ) Until then…Happy New Year!

Hi

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

Enjoy!!!
