Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

SUMMER PROJECT: Making Puppets

Recently, I saw a post on SIDETRACKED SARAH about how to make easy puppets out of construction paper. After checking out the instructions, the kids and I figured out how to fold and cut the paper into just the right shape.

The kids "took off" from there, and ended up making a black lab, a dalmation, a pig, and a frog.

A couple days later, I found several more puppets made:  a tiger, a cheetah, a baby pig and a baby frog.

This was such a neat project that encouraged creativity, and less time watching the TV.
