Dividing Cleaning Tasks

When I was a kid, my mother cleaned the whole house once a week. (Not that she didn’t clean up anything in between) I mean all the dusting, vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, floor mopping, EVERYTHING on ONE day. As I got older I was assigned a lot of it. It takes a lot away from a […]

A Journey Through Learning

I discovered lapbooking several years ago. Though we do not always have a lapbook in progress, we like to make at least one or two a year to add variety to our school day.

Sabbath Hymn

We’ve finally started doing something in our home that I’ve wanted to try for a long time. (I was originally inspired by Molly at Counter Cultural Mom.)We’re going to work on learning one hymn per week. I’m printing out a copy of the words for the kids’ memory notebooks. (Which are getting SLOWLY put together.) […]

Weekly Wrap Up (9/19/09)

It’s time for another Weekly Wrap Up at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers. I’m not going to make this another listing of curriculum. That would be time consuming. (Not to mention boring for you.) So I’ll just summarize some of the things we’re learning. (And a lot of them aren’t from a book.) First, we started our […]

Studypod

You may be wondering what in the world is a Studypod? Is it like an iPod for studying? (Hmm. That would be a nice review item. If anyone has an iPod they’d like me to review, that would be great. Especially an iTouch.) But I digress. A Studypod is a book holder designed especially for […]

Homeschool Student Book Club Plans

I’ve shared several times about our homeschool book club. It is my older children’s favorite homeschool activity. My son and daughter kept asking me when we are starting book club. Finally this week we got together at the park, and while the kids played, the mothers planned out our monthly book club projects. Here is […]
