Free Homeschool Science Lesson

It's always fun to get a free homeschool science lesson for a change of pace from the textbooks or workbooks, so I've loaded one to my website for you. You'll especially like this one if you are studying plants this year, but even if you're not, you can read over it yourself and learn some information that you have probably never heard before. There is even a little history and health thrown in on this lesson. A quiz is included at the end to make sure your children understood the lesson.

Look for this graphic on my site and enjoy!

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea


"On the NAUTILUS men's hearts never fail them.
No defects to be afraid of,
for the double shell is as firm as iron, no rigging to attend to,
no sails for the wind to carry away;
no boilers to burst, no fire to fear,
for the vessel is made of iron, not of wood;
no cove to run short, for electricity is the only power;
no collision to fear, for it alone swims in deep water;
no tempest to brave, for when it dives below the water,
it reaches absolute tranquility.
That is the perfection of vessels." 

- JULES VERNE

Different ways to make dirt dessert cake FUN!



Spring is finally here and what better way to celebrate the season than eating dirt cake!


This week my kids and I demonstrated how to make this classic recipe on FOX's Mom Squad.


Children (and adults) LOVE this recipe! It's simple to make and so delicious to eat, but I think it's the presentation that keeps kids asking for more. Rather you make a gross dirt dessert with gummy worms and insects or a spring dessert with flowers, this recipe never seems to get old!

Fly on over to my site to see all the different ways my family has made this FUN recipe.

Queen Esther - Easy Reader & mini-book!

What a fun day we've had!  We made Hamantashen cookies, wove construction paper baskets, and read a little book about Queen Esther.  Purim is coming up this weekend.  It is the Jewish holiday celebrated in the book of Esther, in the Bible.  We are not done yet, we still have A LOT of cookies to make!

I just wanted to stop by and share my book with all of you:) It's a little virtual party favor for you... I hope you enjoy it!!!



Happy Purim!
