When I was young, I had a favorite Christmas Carol: Angels We Have Heard on High. I’m pretty sure I drove my parents and brother insane around Christmas time, as I would sing it nonstop. Of course, I sang it during other times of the year as well, just because I liked it. I’m sure… Continue reading Angels We Have Heard on High Unit Study
When you think about Christmas, the Philippines probably isn’t the first country that comes to mind. Many of us think about snowy days, cozy sweaters, and toasty warm treats. However, Filipinos celebrate Christmas in a pretty huge way! My family is involved in a ministry that has a branch in the Philippines, and my son… Continue reading Learning about Christmas in the Philippines!
Something that I love about the units I’m writing this month is that each of them is “inspired” by someone I hold dear. Today, I’m writing about Christmas in Sweden in honor of a dear friend of mine!

There are a lot of things I love about Christmas! I love celebrating the coming of Christ, spending time with my family, and just taking time to focus on different things.

We’ve all heard it…scratch that. Most of us have probably said it at one time or another! (In our pre-homeschooling mom days, of course!) “Why read the book? I’ll just watch the movie.” *Affiliate links may be present on this page. Purchasing items through these links does not change your price at all, but it… Continue reading A Christmas Carol Unit Study
When I taught jr. high and high school literature, The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare was one of my favorite books to cover. I made it into a 6-week unit that included a major writing project.

Have you ever stood in front of one of those “hidden picture” works – the ones that are supposed to have a dolphin hidden in the field of flowers or something like that?
