Wednesday's Wonderful Website

Scholastic has a webpage called "Daily Starters" that has different problems and fun factual information for teachers to use with their students.  For classroom teachers, there is a "class view" version for projecting onto a white board.  For homeschool moms, the daily starters can be printed out, or you can have your children simply check their answers right on the webpage.

I personally really appreciate all the sales that occur this time of year.  Over the past few years, I've discovered that this is, amazingly, a great time to stock up on curriculum I know I'm going to use with my kids.

Book Review: Homeschool Mom's Bible

Wednesday's Wonderful Website: Free Calendar Binder Printables

Little Sparkle is excited to be doing first grade work this coming school year.  The curriculum we're using does a lot of hands-on activities for math.  One topic covered is the calendar. That's why I was thrilled when I saw a friend pin a link to some free calendar printables. Interestingly, I had originally intended to just buy a "teaching calendar" which would allow Little Sparkle to change the days, dates, months, weather; etc. on a pocket chart we'd hang on the wall.  When I showed her the website with the free calendar printables, she said she wanted to do those!
