Like all homeschool families, we have things that just work for us. Although – to be frank, a lot of times we go to our wonder woman homeschool form maker – Notebookingpages.com to get a lot of things we use. And, we actually use Simplycharlottemason.com’s online schedule app. But, there are some things that we do for ourselves. This is where we keep them.
Just click on them open them up and print them out as you like.
Vocabulary Work: (we use this form with all of our books we read and we keep it in our Language Arts Notebook)
We are doing a State Texas Notebook with our son. We just finished a very thorough study of World War II – and he wants to do Sonlight Core F (a modified version ) from May – September. So we are saving up for that. In the meantime, we are going to do something fun and put together a Texas Notebook. It will be like a super sized version of a Tourist Attraction Guide. Filled with information from major sport teams, places to see, parks, natural sites, popular destinations, government interests, local and regional ecological information, and as much stuff as we can get from county seats and cities across the state. We’ve already received a TON of information. But, to help you get started, I created our own Notebook Pages set for Texas. I’d love to get a little money for it – but, I’m not willing to create a pay me button. So, if you want to donate, firstname.lastname@example.org to paypal and bless me – otherwise, enjoy.
Next we’ll be doing the Andrea Doria and a little study of Major disasters that shook the world. We have the book, Saved, a story about the Andrea Doria. Another book, Great Ships of the Century (focus is only luxury liners from the 1900’s to around the 1970’s) and then we have a look at the 50’s and 60’s and some little study guides inside geared toward learning about housing styles, clothing styles, vacation styles and trends and all things 50’s and 60’s. So, it is sort of a study of the Era as well as the disasters surrounding that time, from ship to air, land and sea. Included here is our Andrea Doria Notebooking set.
We did this a few years ago. It was fun. A lot of reading and work – I didn’t know too much back then how to make unit studies, I just knew that we liked them, before we knew what they were actually called. So, here is one on the Aztec Empire.
