Well, here we are, successfully through another school year! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the promise of being outdoors for a bit is upon us. We now close the books on our school year, celebrate, reflect, and plan for the next.
Today, I want to get you excited for the summer as an opportunity for treasure hunting. If you put together unit studies largely from scratch as we do, you know that most of the planning comes at the front end as you look high and low for the best, the coolest, the most engaging, the smartest, and the wittiest materials. This is no small task, and I cannot stress enough both the importance of finding these gems and the abundance of fabulous resources available to us! It just takes a bit of digging.
On this blog, you’ll find a handy little “Resources” tab at the top right. If you click on that, you’ll discover an entire page of buttons that are gateways to cool resources grouped by subject. I’m adding to these all the time, so keep checking back. If you click on a subject you really need but it’s a little lacking, tell me, and I’ll scoot it up on my priority list to add more materials. Or perhaps you prefer to have your resource lists in the form of the printed page. If that’s the case, click over to download my handy, free printable Resources for the Creative Educator guide. There’s something for everyone here.
You may also try clicking on the “Homeschooling 101″ subject heading at the top of this page. There I share all sorts of specific tricks of the trade when it comes to organization and planning, and finding the books and tools you need to make your kids’ education awesome.
And don’t forget: I’ve also been steadily filming my book review vlog series, which you can now find on the right side of the STEAM-Powered webpage. I release a new episode every Monday, and you can either subscribe to my channel or simply watch each new clip on STEAM-Powered Classroom. To make the deal even sweeter, I’m now taking requests! For example, I’m currently in the midst of a mythology review mini-series, specifically because one of my readers needed some ideas. Let me know if I can help you!
Why not check out a vlog or two right now? Here are a couple of recent episodes, for your enjoyment. Happy hunting!
