I love getting organized for the new school year, and one of my favorite things to do is to rearrange our school room for something a little different.  This year is no exception as we actually did a little more than normal.  You’ll see what I mean in a minute as you will see several before and after pics.

This fall my daughters are VERY excited about starting science because they’ve seen me getting this curriculum ready, and they LOVE the Magic School Bus.  We looked at getting a few Magic School Bus kits but quickly realized the cost was too expensive for us.

We then looked for free alternatives and found a few lesson plan ideas using SOME of the Magic School Bus Episodes but none that used all of the episodes, or else they didn’t included a living book or experiment element to them.  When I later discovered all the amazing resources that the Magic School Bus provides on their website for FREE, I decided it was time to see what I could do about forming our own Magic School Bus lesson plans.  The result is what you will see below and can download for FREE to use in your own homeschool or classroom this year.

#magicschoolbus   #science   #homeschool   #ihsnet   #curriculum   #printables   #FREE  
The Magic School Bus Science in 180 Days is a FREE DOWNLOAD that includes 180 days of Magic School Bus Lesson Plans for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students.

This year along with our calendar notebook we are going to have a copywork notebook in which the girls will copy a few letters or a few sentences every day to review memory work we have already accomplished as well as improve penmanship, and reinforce science, history, Bible, phonics, and other lessons we are learning along the way.  To help with this process, I created some copywork pages, and just in case you might want to use them too, I’m sharing them today for free!  Come get your copy!

#copywork   #homeschool   #ihsnet   #penmanship   #handwriting   #printables  
Download a total of 360 colorful copywork printables for K-2 students covering history, science, phonics, math, Bible verses, and more.

Today is our official first day of the 2015-2016 school year!  I can’t believe it’s already here!  The girls are super excited about what is in store for the day (and I am a little too for that matter).  Knowing that today would be a really busy day we decided to take our back-to-school pics last week so we could share them today and focus on what is ahead.

Even though I’m not the best or most knowledgeable photographer around, in the years since having my girls I have learned a thing or two about taking pictures of kids, whether with your nice DSLR camera or your cell phone.  Thus, today I thought I’d share a few key tips I’ve learned about taking pics of my girls as means to show off our back-to-school pics (hey, I am a mama after all…).  Hope these help as you plan to take your own back-to-school pics and give you a smile or two in the process.

Christian Home Life | Homeschool
Introduction
Kathy Gossen seeks to encourage others to live for Jesus in the everyday no matter what the occasion.  She is frequently found living out this motto as she organizes her closets for the twentieth time, prepares homeschool lesson plans for two wiggly worms, cooks for a picky eater (aka her husband), or learns how to become a better blogger.  In the end she just prays that her life song sings of love for her Lord, and she hopes to encourage others along the way in her writings on Cornerstone Confessions.  

Kathy also serves as the Executive Director and non-profit founder of Central Oklahoma Homeschool Choirs, a 5-choir choral program providing a quality choral education to over 170 area homeschool students ages 5-18.  As ED of COHC, she is also the coordinator of the Oklahoma Homeschool Choral Fest, a solo and ensemble and large group choral event for all Oklahoma homeschool students ages 8-18 led under the direction of a nationally known clinician.
