OMG. Check Out These Personalized Notebooks and Holiday Planners!

Can I tell you something that might surprise you? My kids have never owned anything that had their names on them. It’s true.

But now they do.

(Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with an affiliate link.)

My kids are now the proud owners of personalized notebooks from @familynestprinting, while I’ve been getting organized with the new Family Nest Holiday Planner.

My children have been merrily writing away in them (with no prompting from me!) since last night. So far I’ve seen a multitude of stories, spelling lists (of words that they chose), and even a list of animes.

I also enlisted the help of my kids to decide what will be on our Thanksgiving menu, so that is now officially in the Thanksgiving section of my new planner.

Flash Kids Language Arts Review | Grades 2, 4, 5, and 6

So many #homeschooling families spend an arm and a leg on language arts curriculum, so I thought I’d share the workbooks we use. They’re comprehensive, effective, engaging, and they only cost about $7!

How We Homeschool with Fun-Schooling Journals

Back when I was constantly making #notebooking videos, people used to comment all the time to tell me how much they thought our family would enjoy @funschoolingbooks. Boy, were they right. These books add just the right amount of structure and direction to an otherwise self-directed lesson. I highly recommend them for every #homeschooling family.

Since our homeschool changes every now and then, today on my channel I shared how we’re using them right now.

My Homeschool Mom Prayers Have Been Answered!

My homeschool mom prayers have been answered! Although notebooking is one of our favorite ways to learn, printing out all those pages is not exactly my favorite pastime, especially considering the horrible luck I’ve had with printers.

Fun-Schooling Journals Review!! Animal Lover’s and Do-It-Yourself Minecraft

All right, everyone! I’ve done a @funschoolingbooks unboxing video and a couple flip-through videos, but today I posted our first actual review on my YouTube channel.

My 14- and 15-year-old daughters have been working in their (respective) DIY Minecraft and Animal Lover’s journals for a few months now, so I felt we finally had enough time invested that I could share our thoughts about them.

Fun-Schooling Math for Minecrafters

Welp, I did it again. I went and got MORE @funschoolingbooks journals. This time, I got Fun-Schooling Math for Minecrafters for my five youngest.

They’ll be using this as a fun supplement to their main math programs (some use CTCMath, some use Abeka), and they are so excited about it. I did tell them that they have to finish their morning basket drill books first, and then they can start these, so now they’re looking at these as rewards.

Since these are so different from the typical math workbook (and since Fun-schooling books are my new obsession), I decided to record a quick flip-through so others can see if they’d be a good fit for their families.

Our Homeschool Is Changing! Our New Curriculum Reveal!

Last week, I announced that there will be some changes in our homeschool. This is the first week we started implementing them, and so far, so good.

Today on my channel I shared all the new resources I’ve been so excited to use.

Our Newest Funschooling Books!

I mentioned last week in a video that we’re changing things up in our homeschool. One of the things we’re doing differently is notebooking. Instead of our typical notebooking loop, all of my kids will have a Funschooling journal. They’re such a hit with my teens that I couldn’t resist.

Today on my channel, I did a flip-through of the Funschooling journals my littles and middles will be using.

Unboxing Our Very First THINKING TREE FUNSCHOOLING JOURNALS!!

Although we have been a notebooking family for quite some time, up until this point, we’ve never tried the Funschooling journals that so many people recommended to us.

A couple weeks ago, @funschooling.adventures shared a giveaway, which I entered and WON! Yesterday my package arrived, and I impatiently waited to open it all day so that I could do it with you in an UNBOXING video!

Head over to my channel today to see my first impressions of the journals and for a detailed flip-through. 😊

Bring Ancient History to Life with Beautiful Feet Books

When I was growing up, I hated history. I hated everything about it: the boring textbooks, the required memorization of dates and other (what I thought was) useless trivia, the multiple choice tests that were easy to ace but served no purpose when it came to retention, and the boring documentaries accompanied by worksheets designed to make sure we were paying attention.

Yup. It was awful. Continue reading “Bring Ancient History to Life with Beautiful Feet Books”
