Go Pink For October, Halloween Unit Study, Columbus Day For Homeschoolers
Happy Monday, everyone. I have been busy using my day off, shampooing rugs, and storing away toys that my children are not currently playing with. Now I am tired, and going to blog for a bit.
As you can see, my blog has gone pink. October is Breast Cancer awareness month. I am a little late, but better late than never. Turn your blog pink, and show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness. Mine will remain pink, until Novemeber 1st.
Love my blog, dont forget to join my reader, it will get you one entry, into the 10 dollar giveaway, and free advertising contest.
As stated in the rules at the top of my blog, if you submit a Fall related picture, you will be entered into the contest. My husband is real good, at deleting pictures off of my computer, so I had to go take one. The pictures are of my children, in their Halloween costumes, they will be wearing this year.
Speaking of Halloween, want a free Themed Unit Study, for free, on Halloween? Then go to http://www.schoolexpress.com/ and sign up for their free newsletter, and they will send you a new one every Sunday. They also have a whole curriculum based on just Unit Studies, it is not free, but the price is very reasonable. If you sign up, and it is too late, for you to get the Halloween Unit, I can email it to you.
Today is Columbus Day, and I am sure a lot of you are off. If you need some help finding a good lesson for your Homeschool, about Christopher Colombus, then I have some links for you. If you just want to learn more about Columbus Day, these are great for everyone. Here they are:
