My full disclosure is here.

It’s our first week back to homeschooling and we’re still adjusting as you can probably tell from this late newsletter. Usually I write them on Thursday after the kids go to bed, but I apparently passed out while putting the little one to bed.

Links for homeschooling & distance learning:

  • Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11. My memory of the event is a bit of a daze as I was at home sleeping when my husband (then boyfriend) woke me up to ask if what he was watching real or a movie. It was such a surreal day, and so many lives were lost in a terribly short period of time. It’s horrible to think that tragedy is the only way to unite our country for a brief period. To learn more about that day, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum has lessons and virtual field trips to help kids learn about the tragic event.
  • TinkerClass from WOW in the World started on Monday, but it’s not too late to get in on the game. My older two have been loving the activities.
  • We love gameschooling, and My Little Poppies has a great little Top 5 list you should check out.
  • Our homeschool charter teacher shared this awesome free Math tutoring website. (Thanks, Alicia!)
  • Khan Academy has a new app for kids, and the little ones have been enjoying playing with it.
  • I like the idea of nature journaling, but realize I need a little help in getting started so will probably sign up for No Sweat Nature Study.
  • This game (affiliate) would be fun for Poetry Teatime.
  • Do you suffer from art clutter? My kids keep producing works of art and I have no clue what to do with them, so I buckled down and got these portfolios (affiliate) as well as this frame set (affiliate).
  • I’m always looking for fun science YouTube videos, and Mark Rober’s videos look pretty cool.
