Unit Study On Feelings, Homeschool Resources

This week, on they are offering a free unit study on Feelings. I have checked it out, and it is a good one. I save these, and add them to my curriculum, usually at the end of the year, or where there is an empty slot. They are free, and they will send it to your email every week, so sign up if you need some new curriculum ideas.

I am a day behind, so there will be two days worth of lesson plans listed, as I posted about the contest yesterday. Dont forget to enter, the prizes are great. Last months contest was a dog cake, and it is being made, and pictures should be up soon. I am a little behind, as my youngest is sick. She is very rarely sick, so this is kind of traumatizing to her.

I am sorry to hear about your youngest being sick, Melissa. I hope she feels better soon.

Also, I have been out in the blogosphere again, went up to the mountains and no signal over there :( and when we got back, got some headache and cold :( but now, I think I would have some energy to do entrecard dropping :)and blogging, hopefully.

Oh, and I would love to join the contest. I will email you a fall picture I took recently. And This comment counts :).
