A few simple items that I had lying around on my hard drive. June went so very fast...zoom, zoom!ย  Independence Day is right around the corner.

I have a simple 4th of July notebooking page, The Pledge of Allegiance and America Poster. Maybe they will be of some use.

This week, I have a simple Friday Freebie. It is a numbers chart I made over a year ago when Donnie was in Saxon 54. The book had him writing out numbers like 326 or 1548. He didn't know how to spell thirty, or one hundred, etc. So I made him this chart for reference. He kept it in his math book.

He no longer needs it today!! Hopefully it will be helpful to someone. I will keep this up as a permanent freebie.

This week I have the last set of questions for this series,Sounding Forth the Trumpet for Children by Peter Marshall and David Manuel.

If you don't own the book, it is a great history read for elementary to early middle school age. Heck, I even enjoyed reading it and the other two books in the series. ๐Ÿ™‚

There are questions in the back of the book for each chapter, and that is what I put in downloadable format. It just makes it easier on my son when it comes time to answer them.

You can find the first two books here:

From Sea to Shining Sea Questions
The Light and the Glory Questions

From Sea to Shining Sea For Children - Questions This week, I have the next set of questions for From Sea to Shining Sea for Children by Peter Marshall and David Manuel.

I had planned on including this on Donnie's reading list next year, but am now thinking of going a different route. Looking it over again, I just might have him read it...ack, I don't know. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe I won't have him do the questions...maybe just orally. OR, maybe I will choose a few and make it a book test! Yah, that sounds like an idea. ***I am thinking out loud here*** ;~)

In case youย  missed it, here are the questions for The Light and The Glory.

The Light and The Glory For ChildrenAs I was planning for the next school year, I was thinking of having Donnie read The Light and the Glory for Children as well as the other books in the series.

I was also thinking of having him answer the questions in the back for each chapter. I decided it would be easier for Donnie if the questions were as worksheets and inserted into his school folder. If he sees it, he will remember to do it. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I typed them up notebook style. I am happy to share them with those of you who plan on using this book in your studies also.

Funny thing though, the past week or so, I have felt the leading to have us all learn Bible History. So, I am now researching this. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always wanted to dig deeper into Bible times, so I am excited.

You can find The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall and David Manuel at Amazon or Christianbook.

I am back this week with the last set of state cards, The Western Region of the United States of America!

These are great to be used as:

  • flashcards โ€“ show the student the name of the capital and have him supply the state, and vice-versa.
  • memory โ€“ just like you would play the game of memory with your littles, the older children can play memory too, uncovering the state and capital as a match.
  • matching โ€“ side by side matching going through the pile.

Free Easter Lapbook and Study-Includes the Bible story of Jesus' death and resurrection, lapbooking components, questions, and copywork.

This was originally an Easter Lapbook I had on Albright News, but I made some changes.

Sadly, my kids aren't much for lapbooks, so I decided to make it more workbookish for them. The discussion questions are now to be answered in writing and I added copywork.

But, it all can still be done discussion style too with your kids filling out the lapbook components. When it is all done, they will have a way to retell the story visually as a lapbook.

You can tape or glue the lapbook components onto the file folder or cardstock as you go, or save them in a zippy bag or folder until the last week and then assemble your lapbook.

Each part includes:

  • The story of the Resurrection told by Aunt Charlotte
  • Questions after each selection
  • Copywork of verses (can also be used for memory verses)
  • Lapbook

This week, I have the next set of state and capital cards. I added the state abbreviations to this one. When I was having the kids fill in the map, I noticed them writing out the whole state name. I was thinking they would just write the abbreviation. Duh! lol! I didn't have them learn the abbreviation! ๐Ÿ™‚ So, this week I added them.

These are great to be used as:

  • flashcards - show the student the name of the capital and have him supply the state, and vice-versa.
  • memory - just like you would play the game of memory with your littles, the older children can play memory too, uncovering the state and capital as a match.
  • matching - side by side matching going through the pile.

State Cards

The kids are learning their states and capitals beginning with the southern states...since we are in Georgia.

These cards can be printed on card stock or regular paper.

The kids match up the state with the capital. They can also be used as flash cards.

I included in the download a map of the southern states so they can learn their positions also.

There is also a list of the state and its capital.

The kids enjoyed the challenge of matching them up.

I plan on doing this with all regions, so stay tuned. ๐Ÿ™‚
