*NEW* Homeschooling through the Seasons FB Page

hs seasons


I have a BRAND NEW Facebook group called Homeschooling through the Seasons. I will be posting seasonal and holiday educational resources every day, and I’m inviting you to join & share too! Unlike a Facebook page, where you are allowed to sometimes see only 10% of what I post, a group gives us the opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another.

The Are We There Yet? page isn’t going anywhere. I will still be posting my regular stuff, but the new group allows me to share the cool links that I don’t have time to put into a blog post. Come join us and add a bit of seasonal fun to your homeschool days!

Homeschool for Free: Literature Guides

This post contains affiliate links.


I should probably be embarrassed about how giddy I feel looking through this long list of free literature guides, but I’m not. :) Most of them fall into three categories: Lit Guides, Book Units, or Study Guides.

I know from experience that it takes a long time to sift through these to find what you need. If you are short on time, I HIGHLY recommend the 7 Sisters Homeschool Literature Study GuidesThey are super-affordable and contain no busywork. You can try out Anne of Green Gables for FREE.

Month by Month Creative Planner

I’ve updated my monthly planning notes for the 2014-15 school year. I use these pages as a creative brain dump – a place to jot down seasonal notes, crafts, field trip ideas, and our Funschool theme of the week. My plan is to gather my favorite Frixon erasable gel pens, curl up in a comfy chair, and spend some time searching through my seasonal Pinterest boards. Download your 12-page freebie below and start planning the fun!
