- Thanksgiving may be over, but the blessings we receive during this holiday season are not. If your children have not already begun to create a Gratitude Journal, now is the time to initiate that project, and Kim Kautzer will show you how to get started in the November Writing Lessons. Plus, Kim’s lesson will include a wonderful list of ideas about ways to care for others, including writing thank-you cards! And Kim will have a new lesson in December.
- Before you take a Christmas break, there is plenty of meat on the lessons as we head into December. Jennifer Courtney’s resource-filled studies of ancient history move through some of the most important stages in Israel’s Old Testament history, leading up to the founding of Rome. Study Adam Andrews’ thorough research of the classic Miracles on Maple Hill with our Literature lesson, well suited for upper elementary through middle school and even high school students, and work through Terri Johnson’s wonderful maps in our Geography lessons.
- Looking to go lighter or move toward the elective route as you enjoy a holiday break? Check out our Beginning Guitar lessons with Jerry Jennings and fun household Science experiments with Jason Lindsey from Hooked On Science, or encourage your teens to learn the basics of professional filmmaking from George Escobar, who teaches from a Christian point of view.
It is the holiday season, and in my family that means one thing: travel and lots of it. Over the many years, we have put thousands of miles on our Suburban as we have gone over the hills and through the woods to Grandmother’s house each year. While preparing for our trip means making sure we have enough clothes and shoes for our stay, it also means preparing to survive the actual drive!
During the weeks before we climb into the seats and brave the fourteen-hour drive, I am on the lookout for creative ways to keep all my travelers happy. Using lessons from SchoolhouseTeachers.com is one of the ways I do that. With the advent of smartphones and mobile technology, keeping the family from chanting “Are we there yet?” for the millionth time just got easier.
Did you know that SchoolhouseTeachers.com can be accessed from your smartphone or computer tablet? I use it on my phone all the time! It is the perfect place to find games, books to read, history trivia, and places to explore.
So before your holiday travels begin, make sure you visit Everyday Games for on-the-go games—games such as Caterpillar Covers that will help build addition skills or Tic-Tac-Toe Math, both of which are completely ready for you to print and use. To keep little hands busy, you can print out some Everyday Copywork to help build writing skills as you roll on down the road.
Log in while you travel and learn about a great work of art with Everyday Easels. Visit another country with Everyday Explorers, or learn about past events with This Day in History. All of these learning opportunities are just one click away on the Dailies Tab.
