Homeschool Freebie of the Month - Bible Bookmarks

I'm going to start adding one freebie a month. It may be something useful or fun for your homeschool or family. For the month of May the free homeschool item is three bible bookmarks from Bible Bookmarks. These are just a sampling of what the company offers. These bookmarks discuss a certain aspect of the bible and include verses for each day of the week, including questions. The order form mentions billing and shipping costs, but just fill it out and check the bottom box that says it's a free sample at no charge. Enjoy and happy homeschooling!

May Is Planting Month

Sorry for the neglect of the blog. April was a trying month for us, and I just didn't feel like blogging. But all is not lost. We did a lot of planting experiments in April, and I made sure to take pictures of the processes so I could share them with you. To finish up our kindergarten science, I focused on different types of experimental plantings. While they may not be the first time something's been planted, they were the first time we had ever planted anything that way, so it was a learning experiment for us. This week I'll post about our potato plant, our garlic, and our scallions. I'll also share our hay bale garden with you. Avlyn has had a great time doing all of these planting activities. She especially enjoys watching the scallions grow a little bit more each day. If you've never planted something with your child, now is the time to start. It's a great learning experience, and it's fun!  Happy homeschooling!
