A kid hand drawn map of an area cements learning when you're studying about a time period!💪💋💜 It doesn't have to be perfect for kids to remember. 😍😎 After we studied about the Medieval time period, my son drew a light map and labeled countries. ♥🌐🔑🔎 You'll love this Medieval History for Homeschool Middle School!
Thanks to organizations like @hslda @cheaofca @parentalrights.orgusa my freedom to homeschool is protected. I get to spend my days listening to my children read amazing stories, by wonderful authors. I get to learn alongside them and watch them grow. If you homeschool, know someone who does, or value educational freedom and parental rights, please consider supporting them, and at the very least, thank them for all they do 🙌🏽 #ihsnet#hslda#cheaofca#parentalrights#homeschoolfreedom#treasureisland#charlottemason#livingbooks
To accommodate children who love to color and those who do not, each of our jointed paper dolls come in two different versions: already colored and a ready-to-color version.
Some children want to get to the business of assembling and playing with their movable historical figures, while others want to use their creativity to color the historical costume before assembling it.

In this episode, the sisters dive into game schooling by subject. This is Cait’s forté, so Kara does the interviewing, while Cait fills us in on her favorite games for each subject.
The sisters also chat about a few popular games, and how games can make all the difference during the holiday season and leading into the winter. (Games are so hygge!)
So grab your coffee or tea and listen in – but don’t fret, you don’t have to write these all down! They are all here in the show notes!
Our children are not our own. They are Gods. I am trying my best to trust God with my girls as they are entering the teen years it becomes so hard to find that balance between holding on, and letting go. This book has been an encouragement to me so far. What a gentle reminder that HE loves our girls more than we do, and has their best interest at heart <3

Day 11 of #abibliophilesthanksgiving : Les Misérables by Victor Hugo.
This has been my white whale book for as long as I can remember. I finally tackled it this year and it instantly flew to the top of my favorites list! There are so many wonderful things about Les Misérables that it’s hard to name them all. It’s not only a powerful and intriguing story, but a detailed history and thoughtful social commentary. My favorite thing about this epic novel, though, is the poignant thread of Law & Gospel that runs throughout. I’m not sure if there’s a better depiction of the condemnation of the Law than Javert and the absolutely undeserved grace of the Gospel than Bishop Myriel. Jean Valjean is every one of us in Christ, and it’s absolutely beautiful!
“One thing alone was plain to him, that whichever way he went something in him must inevitably die. Whether he turned right or left the end was a sepulchre, the death of one thing or the other, happiness or virtue.” #bauernhausreads#scholesisters#motherculture
Days 9 & 10 of #abibliophilesthanksgiving ! First, The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. If you like Scottish Jacobites and a little bit of fantasy, you’ll enjoy this one! ***************************************
The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. This is a lifelong favorite, and is well-loved in our house! Nothing is better than a classic Pooh-bear story!
Peek into out homeschool week!!! The principal took Daniel to see the Christopher Columbus ship replicas and he had a blast! We’ve spent this week learning about the Mayflower and pilgrims.
Kristen and Daniel made some awesome thanksgiving trees from @chalkpastelart and Alyson has been studying hard in @apologiaworld physical science. This class has been more difficult than we expected and the principal plans on helping her moving forward 😜
Lastly Alyson and her cross country team celebrated an awesome season in her end of the year banquet.
Another week is in the books! What has everyone else been up to? #homeschool#thisiswhathomeschoolinglookslike#BaileyHS#homeschoolresources#ihsnet
Each of our historical jointed paper dolls comes in two versions. One is already colored and the other is in the form of a black & white line drawing that your children can color or paint. Our books are printed on wood free card stock. They may also be laminated after you color them for more protection.

With sick kids this week, there’s been lots of time to curl up & read. We finished “The Green Ember” last week (so good!), now this gem. But here’s the problem- both are a SERIES. Now we have to decide which series book to read next! Or both? Hmm...☕️ #readerproblems
Great literature has a unique power to reveal the epic spiritual nature of all human life. In a great paradox, imagined stories sharpen our value for what is real. - Sarah Clarkson, Read for the Heart 📚

Day 8 of #abibliophilesthanksgiving : Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. This is not a happy tale. It’s bleak and heartbreaking almost entirely from beginning to end. However, the character development is top notch and the lessons to be learned from the story of the bitter cold marriage between Ethan and Zenobia are numerous. It’s a short novel, but worth reading several times! ******************************************
“After the funeral, when he saw her preparing to go away, he was seized with an unreasoning dread of being left alone on the farm; and before he knew what he was doing he had asked her to stay there with him. He had often thought since that it would not have happened if his mother had died in spring instead of winter...” #bauernhausreads#scholeeveryday#motherculture

And back to reading for/with the kids...(see last post for AMAZING book suggestions for mamas!) •
You guys, it's been a suuuuuuper busy couple of weeks. The normal school tasks are not getting done very well. I'm trying not to think about math in July right now, but what we ARE getting done instead. •
When life gets busy like this, there's one thing I try to get in every day...that's read aloud. We just finished The Rats of Nimh. And we just finished listening to Boys on the Boat and are almost done with Murder on the Orient Express. •
What's your family reading aloud right now? And what book should WE read aloud next?? •
