As the school year begins again for many of us, we’re all trying to keep ourselves organized. I use google (online) calendar for many of our activities, but I still keep a traditional paper calendar as well in my homeschool planner. I wanted to share the updated printable calendar with you all. This is FREE to download and print out, just click to link or picture below!
This calendar goes from September 2017 through August 2018. Hope it’s helpful! ~Liesl
Speaking of being organized, at the beginning of the summer I shared a free 100-page packet of Homeschool Planning pages. This unique homeschool planning packet is FREE to download! Not only does this packet include daily and weekly planning pages, checklists and record keeping pages, but it also includes various homeschool journaling pages… think gratitude journal meets homeschool goal setting! (This is different than the Homeschool Vision Planner that I shared back in May.) You can check it out with the link below. Hope it’s helpful!! ~Liesl

You might also be interested in our Homeschool Planning Series with tips on Creating Your Homeschool Curriculum. We have three (of four) free resource guides available for K-1, Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5. (The Grade 6-8 Resource Guide is mostly finished. I hope to share that early this next Fall 2017.)
Creating a Homeschool Curriculum: Kindergarten, Grade 1 This FREE 50-page Resource Guide has been created to answer some basic questions: What subjects should I cover? Where do I start? How do I know what to teach. It offers topics, units and hands-on activity ideas that might appeal to your kids.
Creating a Homeschool Curriculum Grades 2-3 FREE 30-page Resource Guide
This guide is a starting point for choosing the material you might want to cover in your homeschool. What subjects, units and topics should you cover in Grades 2 and 3? Where do I start? This resource guide will offer suggestions on what topics and hands-on activities might be engaging for your kids at this age.
And finally, be sure to check out our store for many of our packets. We *love* hands-on activities and have done lots of engaging activities through the years! Some of our most popular packets include
States of Matter Packet – This was the unit we started out with last year for my youngest (who was 8 last year). All of my kids really enjoyed the hands-on activities we did! From there, we went on to study the Physical and Chemical Properties of Matter (a unit better for upper elementary/middle school). Then, we went on to do another really fun, hands-on STEM unit on Electricity and Circuits. (That one is one of my best selling units over on TpT – along with our Ocean Unit)
Animal Unit and World Animal Packet: This bundle has been really popular lately. It includes the Animal Packet (a study of the animal groups – vertebrate-invertebrate classification, insects vs. spiders, animal tracks and more. It also includes the World Animal Activity pages (60 pages) studying animals of the 7 continents.
Learning the Multiplication Facts (games, skip-counting activities, and bright-colorful worksheets I made for my daughter as she learned her multiplication tables 2s through 9s) (12 pdfs!)
Plus we have lots more science, history units, spelling and math materials and more in Our Store!
