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!

Through the Year with Pinterest

Pinterest is my #1 stop for seasonal school planning.

Using my creative planner, I like to schedule a couple of fun activities for us to do each week. If you need some fresh ideas, I have multiple season & holiday boards.

*Note: those of you viewing this in a reader or email might have to click through to view the board previews.

Take a look!

Poppins Book Nook: Things Pirates Do

PBN Things Pirates Do

It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook. This month’s theme is: Ye Old Pirates! 

Please join in the fun with the linky & giveaway at the end!

We focused on Pirates Don’t Change Diapers, a very silly book about what happens when pirates babysit. It is the companion book to How I Became a Pirate.

Pirates Don't Change Diapers   How I Became a Pirate

Sweetpea (age 5) and I came up with an activity that resulted in turning on her giggle button! I asked her four questions, and filled in our chart with her answers. The things little kids come up with crack me up!
