Snowy Day Homeschool Science Lesson - Frozen Letters And Numbers

 Snowy day homeschool fun - a math and science learning lesson all rolled into one. The kiddos learned about primary colors, followed a color mixture recipe and counted drops of colors when mixing, and learned about the transition of a liquid to a solid by freezing.

Next, I tossed out some math problems and they had to discover the right answer and then race to scoop out the correct number.

The Homestead Homeschool Difference

The Homestead Homeschool Difference Have you spent countless frustrating hours on the internet looking for homeschool curriculum materials to use when teaching your children? I am willing to bet this year's harvest that you didn't find a single one designed entirely with homesteading and prepper families in mind.

How To Transition To Homeschooling From Public School

Transitioning from regular school (be it public or private), to homeschooling is quite an adjustment for not just the children but the entire family. Ideally, transitioning from one type of educational experience to another should occur over the summer months to give everyone time to adjust, but such a perfect scenario is not always possible. Transitioning from a typical school environment to homeschooling can successfully be accomplished during any time of the year, even at a moment’s notice to the child. But, adapting to the massive school routine change as well as viewing a parent as both a parent and a teacher, cannot be accomplished in a day.
