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!

Blueberries for Sal book unit - we picked 'blueberries', made playdough, took a nature walk, listened to the sounds of blueberries falling in a bucket. It was such a fun literature unit to work on together and one we remember well!

So far I think that Blueberries for Sal has been one of our favorite books that we’ve done together this year. Maybe it’s because we took a fun walk outsid

I love the bilingual eggs!  Great use for all those eggs we have.
Hola everybody and happy Sabado! Every Easter, my family and I attend church then go to my sister's house for an early dinner.  We do an Easter egg hunt and afterward I am left with several empty Easter eggs.  Whatever you do...

If you’re anything like me, having your home feel put together and peaceful is high on your priority list. And you likely want to keep up with the housework – and home-cooked meals – and life in general. 

Life will never be stress free, but I definitely want to be the best wife and mom that I can be, living life with intentionality. It is so easy to get discouraged though, especially when life keeps throwing curveballs.

What if you had more (and better) tools to help make life stress-less?
The last few weeks at our house have been hard. Rough might be a better word to describe it. I love having family (immediate and extended) surroundin

Times Tales is a great tool for learning tricky multiplication facts. Using mnemonic stories, kids work on their times tables - and remember them! 

We used the download version from +Educents and loved them!
