This Week on Pinterest
Most Promising Homeschooling Finds
• Free Printable Worksheets: brainteasers, mazes, graphs, much more.
• Free Audio Books: absolutely tons of free audio books, for people of all ages. Classics, unusual titles, and more. This one could be amazing!
• Physics Lapbook(s): This Squidoo site has foldables and ideas for six physics lapbooks! It looks amazing. Since Duncan isn't taking any science at co-op this semester, I really need to look into this more. My goal is to begin one of these this week.
• Science Experiments in a Bag: This is such a great idea. My kids used to love when I'd get out the leftovers from the Sonlight science kits. I need to make a bunch up for Duncan.
Synonym Flower: The link doesn't go into detail on this, but the photo is pretty self-explanatory. This is really, really cute and I just happen to be teaching synonyms in creative writing at co-op right now. This might have to be integrated into my WordSmithery curriculum!
• Job buttons: Kids can pick what they want to do and earn money around the house. This is an etsy site and I think the cost is quite reasonable, but I'll probably end up making these somehow on my own. My kids are always asking how they can earn money, and I always mean to put some kind of system into place. There is also a chore chart on the etsy store that gives lots of ideas for jobs.
• Homemade furniture polish: Why not?
• Magical carpet cleaner: I have tried this already, and it was amazing. I am going to work on a few more spots today.
• Magazine rack: This would look amazing in my new office and/or modified to hold cookbooks or whatever. I'm pretty sure Randy and Duncan would love to make a couple of sets of these for me.
• Quilt: I like this simple quilt pattern. As soon as I get my sewing machine set up, I am going to start it.
• Cloth coasters: We really need these. I'm always cleaning drink residue off our coffee and end tables. I repeat: as soon as I get my sewing machine set up....
• Mississippi Mud Pie: Ridiculous. I must try it.
• Italian sausage and basil red sauce: Yum. I repinned this from my daughter, so I keep hoping she is going to make it.
• Twice baked potato casserole: This is going to show up on our menu sometime this week.
