printables and links for december homeschool extras!

I have be gather some resources to integrate into our school room for December.  I found some sites and printables I’m pretty excited about.  I thought I’d share them here with you.

1.  We have done The Jesse Tree for the last few years.  It’s a printable booklet and it has ornaments.  We save our ornaments to use each year.  We also have an add-on so we can use the Jesus Storybook Bible for the younger ones in our family.

2.  This link is from Teachers of Good Things.  She has a great linked list of ideas and printables to keep Christ in your December homeschool.  This is a GREAT list!

3.  I found a great unit study Homeschooling Through the Nativity at Intoxicated On Life.

How do you switch things up for December in your class?  I love the fun and excitement of this time of year, don’t you?  Have festive weekend all!

on the mend and off the needles

The kids are on the mend.  The projects that have been done for weeks are finally free from loose ends.  Creeping ever closer to completing crafted gifts for my tiny people and more.  The weekend is going to be filled with baking, fellowship and a certain little boy’s party.  How does six years fly by?

How are you doing on your Christmas gifts?  What projects are you planning?  Do share.  I love to reap the benefits of the many talented people and original ideas that are out there.


for my Liv

The Favorite Knit Hat is fresh off the needles for my miss Olivia’s Christmas gift.  A Mustard Scarf is underway to complete her knitted gifts for the holiday.  Double points for that rhyme  ;)

Progress is always good, with cool nights and mornings it’s just the kind of atmosphere I need for motivation.
