Another set of cute planner pages!
 
They're ready!! 2 Page Academic Calendar for 2015 to 2016 School Year The first of the 2 page per month at a glance academic calendar for the 2015-2016 school year is ready! And I am loving it. I already printed my copy and have it in my planner.
2 Pages Per Month At A Glance Academic Calendar
Just a heads up, remember I luv color so the calendar is a color calendar. It is a two page spread calendar that gives you plenty of room to write in.
At the top right side, I have a place on the first month, which is July for you to jot down projected dates for school to begin and end. After that month, the box at the top right on the other pages are for you to track what is priority whether it’s dates to remember, projects or record keeping.
Remember too though I say it’s an academic calendar, it is 12 months so that you can either use it for year around homeschooling or just to note dates for the full year.
Bottom line, you get a full year to help track like we live life, year around and not just for a nine month school year. Too, when you download the digital 2 pages per month at a glance calendar, you can print off as many copies as you like for your personal use.

Using Crafts to Teach Kids

My kids like to craft.  But do you know WHY it's good for your kids to create crafts?  OR, what crafts can teach?

If you need a little inspiration to get out the construction paper, crayons, and scissors this week, then read this.  It's worth it!

My family has been trying out Zeezok Elementary Music Appreciation curriculum and loving it.  Would you believe I now have three classical music lovers in the house because of this curriculum?  Needless to say, this music teacher gone homeschool teacher is sold.

I don’t know about you, but around here we LOVE to read.  Every time we go to the library it’s like Christmas.  “Can I take another one momma?”  “Momma, how many books can I check out this week?  Aw…just one more….please?!” Getting my children to read is not a problem. In fact, probably the most horrible punishment my children could think of is having all their books taken from them.  It’s that serious.

However, we do or maybe I should say did have a problem when it came to getting them to read a variety of books.  Every week we would go into the library and the girls would navigate to the same bookshelves and the same book series.  They had no idea what was really before them.  So, I decided it was time to add some variety into their life and help them to become more familiar with the different library sections available to them.

The result?  Two FREE printables for you!  A Library Checklist and Bookworm tickets!  Come check them out and download them for FREE!

Up until recently I have been organizing my life via pen and paper, but as I mentioned in February, I’m slowly transitioning to a paperless system for my organization needs so as to hopefully, over time, create less clutter and save time.  As I begin to plan for the 2015-2016 school year, I decided that maybe this was my time to take the big leap into digitally organizing my homeschool plans.  

After many days of testing, I narrowed the choices down to 9 possibilities and compared different features from each.  Want to know which planner I found to be the best deal?  Come check out what I discovered!

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.
