Using CurrClick to Help in Homeschooling

CurrClick

I’ve been using CurrClick for years to help in my homeschooling.  We’ve loved doing lapbooks and adding notebooking pages to our lessons.  Did you know they also have online classes?  I’ve thought about doing the Lego class for my Lego-maniacs, but we haven’t had time to add anything else to our lives yet.  :)  Other ideas I’m considering–foreign language, writing, art, and science experiments.

Here are a few things to check out there:

They have a Freebie every week.  This week’s is “Make Your Own ABC Book About . . .  The Animal Kingdom”

CurrClick

2012 Summer (Homeschooling) Plans

The kids will be finished with our homeschooling year as soon as the baby is born–will be sometime today through 19 days from now!  We’re already finished with science, history, and Bible Study Fellowship.  With most other subjects, I just give them the next book whenever they finish throughout the year (math, grammar, logic, handwriting, phonics readers, etc.), so we can stop those now and start up again in the fall.  The only book I’m requiring my oldest boys to finish right now is Latin.  They should be done sometime in June.

I saw this neat summer plan on Pinterest yesterday.  The mom came up with a list of “Must Do Daily Activites” which are to be completed before they do their own thing each day.

Here is what else we have planned for the summer:

Bible Bee - daily Bible Study using their Sword Study (20 minutes a day) and memorizing 2 verse passages a week

Typing – my three oldest will work on typing skills using this website

Instrument lessons/ practice – piano for B, J, and M; violin for B, J, and M; drum lessons for B and J; saxophone for B

Math fact practice for 3 oldest

Daily reading lessons for R and T

Arts and crafts projects

Week-long Sports Camps – Upward Basketball for B and J, softball for B, LifeSports (basketball for M and R, Royal Warriors for B and J)

Theater Camp – CYT for M and R

Library and store reading programs – everyone read alone (or be read to) for 30 minutes daily

New Chores to learn

Summer Olympics lapbook, by A Journey Through Learning, only $1 at CurrClick

Vacations – to in-laws’ lake house and a family trip

And all of this while enjoying our new addition to the family!

The Adventurer’s Journey–My kids’ first movie!

Last fall my kids and the others from our church were able to film a movie written by one of the older boys in the church.  Here it is!

My boys absolutely love making movies! They spend hours doing stop-motion with Legos and making live-action movies using my iPad with the iMovie software. I just downloaded a special 10-week movie-making curriculum from CurrClick that we’re going to learn a lot from!  It’s called Movie Making Basics by Toddler Bites Publishing.

Gardening and Plants–our new unit study

The free lapbook at CurrClick this week “Lapbooking Through Plants” fits in perfectly with our new preschool/lower elementary unit study!

In addition to the lapbook, here are some other things we may do (depending on my energy level with these last 6 weeks of pregnancy!)
