Make learning fun with an easy ancient Greece unit study

This month we shook things up with an  ancient Greece unit study

We’ve used unit studies before from Techie Homeschool Mom (Beth), but when I decided I wanted to review her Ancient Greece unit study, we put it front and center.  It was the first time I was bold enough to put most of our work off to the side and focus, almost exclusively, on a unit study.

It was so freeing!  I have to say I’m pretty hooked and will be doing this more often.  When we approach burnout points, I’ll “take a break” by using primarily a unit study.

And guess what…  Beth has generously offered a free copy of her Ancient Greek Unit Study on Teachable for my review and for one of my readers to win!   Entry in the raffle will also subscribe you to both of our email lists, so if you already subscribe, make sure to use the same email address to avoid getting duplicate emails!  Beth will select and announce the winner soon after the contest ends (Monday night). Read on for videos and the entry form.

Christmas bible verse game your kids will love

Limited time Christmas Bible game Freebie

In keeping with my unofficial theme this month, keeping Christ at the center of Christmas, I’m sharing something to help you do just that! I’ve made a Christmas Bible Game and I’m offering it as a limited time subscriber freebie this week.  It’s a verse memorization game using verses from the nativity story.  There are also coloring pages, pictures, and verse cards.

Previously, in Applied Behavioral Analysis, my son needed to memorize some characters in a story.  Each character’s name and characteristics were meant to help he and I identify what was going on with him in the moment, in a way we both understood.  He and his ABA provider memorized all these things through scavenger hunts.  For each character, he found he had to name them.  Then, in subsequent rounds, he would have to name what their struggle was, and finally, they got down to recalling coping strategies.   It was brilliant!  He learned so much, so fast!  I thought this was a perfect method to apply to scripture memorization.

 

Are you looking for fun ways to keep a Christ-centered Christmas in your home or homeschool? My Christmas Bible Verse Game is th

Made with Love

Snow’s about ready to fall in the Northern hemisphere, and what will you be doing when it does?

Sitting by a crackling fire… a hot cup of coffee nearby… maybe some soft yarn and smooth needles in your lap?  Trying to relax while the kids are feeling restless? 😉

Sounds like you’re ready for something soothing for you, and something to keep their hands busy! If you’ve been on the run all summer and fall, it’s about time for your schedule to slow down just a bit… which means you’ll be reaching for your next handmade project.  This is also a great time to teach your kids how to do some handcrafting too!  It’s a great and inexpensive way to spend quality time together while also getting some presents made.
