We have been homeschooling for several years now and I'm often on a quest to find ways to keep the boys engaged. Over the last few weeks, I've been browsing around the SchoolhouseTeachers.com website and have found many resources that we are excited to incorporate into our school day. You'll find SchoolhouseTeachers.com offers a Yearly Membership with classes that are online (so a computer/tablet is necessary), but many courses offer videos and printable pages as well. There is so much available for ages preschool to high school.

We tested the air's moisture with pinecones. With plenty of pinecones to be found in the backyard and Zander in the middle of a botany class in our homeschool co-op, this experiment was very timely. We learned how to determine whether or not the air is full of moisture or not.

As school resumes after the holidays, we'll be checking out a few more classes. Adisson is super interested in learning to play the guitar and wouldn't you know, there's a class for that! I'm also looking for ways to make preschool learning fun (because after the first few kids, it appears as though my preschool game is getting a bit dry) for Jaxon. Those classes and many more are available. I hope to have a little bit of downtime over Christmas break to add some courses into our schedule.
