Stuff We Like :: 12.9.16

home|school|life's Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources.

Nature & Art

  • With all the depressing news in the media lately, I’ve had to start looking for stuff I like to peruse online. For example, instead of following the news on Twitter, I mostly follow wildlife photographers. I especially love this and this and this.
  • And even though I’m not on Instagram, I tend to find myself on the Audubon Society’s Instagram page anyway.
  • Oh, and I follow lots of super talented artists too. (Check this one out. And this one!)
  • And it’s always nice read about good news.
  • I also learned about this cool new resource on migration for kids from 5-12 years old. It’s over 50 pages of activities, information, resources, live links & so much more. Can’t wait to dive into it. (Note: It costs $10.)


Home | School | Life

  • Home: Enjoying a bounty of apples as we always do this season, and I’m making my favorite apple turnovers with them.
  • School: My favorite little find has been all these short educational films available on Amazon Prime. Sometimes in the mornings I have my boys watch an episode of Symbols of America as I throw in another load of laundry. (I count this as social studies!)
  • Life: My family was happy to find out that a local homeschooling mom has started a chapter of Classical Revolution in a nearby town. If you want your children to experience classical music in an informal setting, check their website to see if there’s a chapter near you.





Here are a few of my recent favorites. (If you want more, I try to pin everything we watch here.)
