Our schedules are already hectic enough with 5 children and 3 of them doing school. Adding more than I have to is not the best idea all the time, but sometimes you just got to give it a shot! Here are some things I couldn't pass up and how I'll be incorporating them into our homeschool year.
Mind Benders by Critical Thinking Co.
Use during quiet time and free time. A great way to get your kids ready for logic. These are fun and age appropriate.
Wordly Wise 3000
Use during language arts instruction. An updated Wordly Wise is a great way to expand your child’s vocabulary skills.
One time use. We are planning a summer unit with friends. Each child gets an owl pellet to dissect.
During school time. Mostly Lauri puzzles that are great for entertaining little ones while I do school with the older kids.
History Through the Ages Timeline Book and Figures from Homeschool in the Woods
Along with history. We’ve had the timeline figures CD since last year, but never used it. This year I got the timeline book and think that it will complement our studies nicely!
So any new, fun extras you've found this year? I'd love to hear about them!!
