When Your Child Hates Writing

Two of our kids have really struggled with the physical aspect of writing. They have plenty to share, but getting it onto paper was difficult. In my head it "had" to be done a certain way - which ultimately caused more tension and difficulty than we needed. This tip has helped us so much.

Homemade beach sand DIY tutorial

Link: http://www.homeschoolcreations.net/2014/09/homemade-beach-sand-sensory-bin-diy-tutorial/

We don't live close enough to the beach, and I didn't want a huge bag of sand from the store, so we made this SIMPLE two-ingredient non-toxic homemade beach sand. The kids loved it. Who says you have to live near the beach to enjoy the sand?

We've finished our first six weeks of homeschool - here's a peek at what we've been doing with our 8th grader. She's been taking several classes for high school credit, but it has been so much fun. One of our favorite classes is North Star Geography from +Bright Ideas Press (I'm getting a daily dose of geography facts!).

Introduction

My name is Jolanthe {pronounced Yo-lawn-the}. On my website, Homeschool Creations, you'll find free educational printables, helpful tips and resources for families, encouragement for your homeschool journey, and a homeschool planner to help moms get organized.

I am a mom to 4 children and wife to a wonderful man. We homeschool all four children, and my days are spent trying to keep up with them all…and the house…and life in general.

My passion is teaching my kids and helping other families in their homeschool journey. Working with children has always been something I have enjoyed, and I love that the online world has provided a way to share ideas and resources with other families all over the world. The last few years has brought speaking opportunities at blogging conferences, homeschool groups, and also homeschool conventions. 

Feel free to contact me with questions!
