Tina's Dynamic Homeschool Plus Archive for February, 2012

{Please share my weekly newsletter with another homeschool mom who would benefit from it.} Newsletter Winter January 15, 2016.

(I don't have enough to do, so for 2016 I created a new Pinterest account, come on over and follow me there too.)

Slow uhmm Sweet Start to the New Year!

Look who came to visit, Mr. Senior 2013. I admit it, I have been playing hooky.


I haven’t seen my baby in 6 months since he left South America to move to New York.

And I had all my sweet men corralled in one spot, a favorite Japanese restaurant, so I grabbed a picture or two.

(Of course, I only took pictures of us after I stopped crying like a baby.)

He leaves this week, but I am so happy to at least be on the same continent with him again.

Back to reality, I need to scoot on with our homeschooling, so look what we have been up to.


If only magic fairy dust could be sprinkled in my fairy tale land that I like to escape to when the hard times of homeschooling hit. And then all my homeschool woes could go away. I’m still waiting for it to happen.

In the meantime, sharing 3 ways you’re making homeschool harder than it has to be, I hope these tried and true tips will help you make some changes and sprinkle a little magic fairy dust for you.

Creative Ways to Give Life to History

History field trips have a way of not only making history fun, but places have a way of helping a child remember important dates, important people and events.

Moving from the book to visiting historical places makes learning history memorable and engaging.

Look at this list of 22 places to visit for history and oh yes, be sure to print off some copies of my Homeschool Field Trip Journal Pages and my free Editable Field Trip Tracking Guide.


Homeschool Luv

Slapping down a map to label states and countries has never been an engaging way to teach my kids homeschool geography. Drill and kill of boring facts to remember only worked for a short time too.

I am sharing 11 awesome ways to learn geography that don’t include labeling a map because geography is so much more than writing out the names of states and countries.

Can you say snore? zzzzzzzz. (okay, okay)

Including ways to teach geography to a variety of ages, I hope some of these help you to get out of your geography rut.
