HSMJ - An invitation to you ...

In my life this week…
I'm really struggling to find my rythm with the new day for this linky each week.  There has been a lot going on in my world. I'm looking forward to rediscovering my rhythm ...

In our home school this week…
  • We've enjoyed some great time reading our books from Sonlight. We finished Charlotte's Web .
  • This week we had some struggles with Math.  It was good because I realized that Sir N needs some more practice with his math facts.
  • Science has been fun too. We are enjoying learning about the different animals found on different continents around the world in The Usborne World Of Animals .  We are exploring North America this week.
  • See How It's Made has been interesting too.  I learned what a 'penny lick' was and together we learned about ice cream production etc.
  • Sir N enjoyed creating an entry for the Lego Challenge this week.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
  • Have you seen the 50 Must Read Homeschooling Mom's blogs over at Homeschooling for Free ?

  • I would like to invite you all to join in with a weekly art meme in sharing the artistic pursuits of your families.   This one is not necessarily a how to post each week but rather a show and tell photo post of an art project your children have done. 
  • For my northern hemisphere friends who are going into Autumn.  Have you seen this neat bowl you can make from autumn leaves ?  It's a beautiful easy craft project.  Pop on over to Hello Lucky for an easy step by step tutorial.

  1. Chloe wants to do French too - but I'm holding off at the moment because I haven't found anything at the lower primary level that I thought might work for us.

    I have thought about Memoria Press { they do a French course } but it's geared for a little older. { 6th grade from memory }

    1. If you find some a program for primary aged students please let me know :)

  2. Sounds like a good week - I like your list of homeschooling helps to share!

    1. It was. Enjoy exploring the links and have a great weekend.

  3. Woohoo. Looks like you are just a bit ahead of me in Sonlight B. I love it. The kids, too! I was part of the Trim Healthy Mama group on FB but got off. I never really understood how it worked -- maybe I just wasn't ready to lose the last few pounds. Its quite popular. Have you tried that drink...what was it Oblong Tea of sorts?

    1. :) A little but not much. Sometimes we take detours but over all we have fun. I like the rythem.

      My mom is going to try the Shrinker made with Ooolong tea :( not my thing.

      I have a few pounds to loose so hope this will help !

  4. Lots of great links - thanks!

    Charlotte's Web is one of our favorite read alouds.
