It's always a good day to play in the dirt - even if you're a middle schooler! I think you're going to love these unique activities Eli and I did recently to learn about soil!

A new school year with fresh curriculum and routines always holds such promise! We just started our Charlotte Mason inspired 6th grade and I wrote a post to share all our curriculum picks and weekly schedule.

Field trips have been such an important part of our homeschool over the years! So much so that I try to make sure we get in at least one field trip a month. I've created a little printable to keep me on target for that goal. You can download the printable, too. It's free!

Talk about an encouraging homeschool podcast episode! +Colleen Kessler interviewed MY homeschool grad in "Trusting Your Kids" and it's sure to give you a boost.

Key point: Giving kids time for passions makes a difference!

Stick around for the entire episode. I hopped on towards the end to continue the discussion. :)

NaturExplorers and +Home Science Tools have teamed up for hands-on nature study! Learn to identify rocks and minerals with fun activities that take a seemingly boring nature topic to a new level.

Did you know some rocks glow? It's true! Did you know some of them fizz? Also true! Did you know some of them are magnetic? Yep, true. Learn how your children can discover these cool things and more about rocks!

Are you homeschooling a special needs child? +Shawna Wingert is, too, and has recognized the importance of using nature study as part of their regular schedule. She's found it benefits his learning style, fulfills sensory needs, and boosts his confidence. I just love her story.

Homeschool organization is front and center in my mind as I stand in the middle of a schoolroom that I just tore apart. While cleaning and reorganizing can be a long process, I always love starting our new school year in a fresh room where everything is stocked and tidy.

I've gotten lots of #homeschool #organization tips from this post at +Curriculum Choice! https://www.thecurriculumchoice.com/homeschool-organization-galore/

How do you add nature study to your homeschool schedule when you're already using a full science curriculum? +Kathy Gossen has shared her plan in this post. I love how she's managed to use nature study as a compliment to the regular science curriculum!
