Did you hear? HomeSchool Share has updated!
HSS launched the results of their annual "Back to School Blast" Contest!!! 47 brand new units and over 100 more resources to use with either HSS units or with Five in a Row (FIAR) units! There are now almost 200 free units and tons of resources at HSS! And everything's free!!!
If you've haven't considered using Five in a Row, do so! You won't regret it. It's an awesome curriculum that is easy to use, fun, and the kids learn sooo much! And the cost won't set you back like some curriculum! If you enjoy snuggling with your kids and reading aloud to them, this is the way to go. If you want to light a fire of loving learning in your children, this is the way to go! It's a small investment with huge returns!

We celebrated the unveiling yesterday by starting our week of sharing Rocks in His Head by Carol Otis Hurst, one of the new units at HSS. My oldest loves rocks--almost as much as the father in this story!
We completed the Social Studies lessons, learning about Henry Ford, the Model T, the Stock Market Crash of 1929, and The Great Depression. We also discussed how Jesus is our Rock.
