Took these sweet babes for lunch at Old Mexico and dessert and playtime at Chick Fil A today. ❤️ We love that we can school in the morning, take a break for some fun, and go back home and finish up our day on our own time. ❤️ #homeschoollife #rowlandkidadventures #mondayvibes

Kids are enjoying the voice option in google. They are able to write reports and experiment with their styles. I’m trying to build confidence in how to use the voice tool, their stories, and then we will get onto the ways a report or summary is nicely written. I love seeing their different styles & personality through their writing. While we struggled this morning with my neurodiverse one, we got over the hump and he wrote a beautiful report.💚 Started our crystal growing science kit, played go fish with site words, practiced writing, math review, typing tutor, cooking & measuring, lots of coloring and tons of reading. My Twin B, read 167 pages last night (now I know why he didn’t want to get up this morning. lol), of his Minecraft book and I can’t get him to put the book down to do things around the house. Im actually so happy to see his voraciousness for reading...I’m letting him slide on duties today. 😉 now its time for frosty the snow man and cuddle up. A great start to our funday Monday! Bc fun is a great way to start your week!! . . . . #twinsplusone #homeschool #homeschoollife #ilovethesehumans #fundaymonday #neurodiverse #aspergers #spd #dysgraphia #learningthroughplay #voraciousness #identicaltwins #myheartisfull #eclecticlife #organizedchaos

We took the day off to enjoy some games and play together. It’s been a wild parenting ride the last couple months and the holidays don’t help much. I couldn’t help but snap this smile today. He loves to have fun and be silly. #childhood Here’s something Jet Pack said tonight. Another one for the books. “I don’t need to go to basketball practice tonight because we won the last game.” 😂😂 oh child, you have 8 more weeks of games. #homeschoollife #homeschoolmom #gameschooling #boymom

My kids are very competitive, so I often tap into that while we are reviewing different things. Today, I decided to do this with my 6 year old!! . I told her that I was going to time her to see how fast she could read her 88 sight words that we have been working on since the beginning of school. She was into it!! She perched herself up on the other side of the table and was telling me to "flip faster!" 🤣 . I always try to help them see the benefits of having a goal, focusing, and working diligently in order to achieve this goal. Even at 6, she understood and wanted to review them again to beat her time. . What are some ways you motivate your kiddos to stay on track or to work hard?

Money Flip Book!💰 . We used this flip book craft as a review and it was a hit. I found it on Teachers Pay Teachers by Cara Gingras as a free activity. It displays how many coins add up to $1.00. I added the name of each President on the back of each coin and dollar. It's always fun to review things because the kiddos usually already know it and therefore feel extra confident in their work and knowledge. Confidence is key! . #childhoodunplugged #playislearning #earlylearning #handsonlearning #earlychildhoodeducator #sahm #earlyyearseducation #preschoolactivities #homeschoollife #homeschoollifestyle #homeed #homeschooler #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolingmama #thisishomeschool #blog #math #money #craft #kidscrafts

📚 Homeschooling Bookshelf 📚 I was asked how I know I’m teaching all the right things with homeschooling. First of all, it’s a valid question. I have a teacher who used to teach at a brick and mortar school and switched to teach at the charter. She went to college for it etc. She helps me once a month (we meet together and go over everything) and I can text or call her anytime. The school requires everything that a normal school would do. We do state testing and all sorts of things. The top row is TJs school and bottom row is Natalie and Sophie’s. We also have access to Education.com, Rosetta Stone, Tynker, Kids Discover Online, Discovery Education, Reading Eggs, Math Seeds and Minecraft Education Edition. I think there might be more. Those are ones we have off the top of my head. We typically do Math, Spelling, History, Reading and Science (alternating history and science every other day) every day and add in crafts, art, crate boxes and other things like critical thinking, story writing, some grammar/root words books, etc. I hope this helps people understand what I’m doing with the kids. We also throw in puzzles, games and things of that sort that are created for learning! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife #homeschooling #homeschoolcommunity #homeschoolmum #school #kids #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #learning #learning #learningisfun #mother #motherhood

Monday, Dec 9, 2019 - *Renaissance Unit Study commences!* Good evening everyone! 💗 After a week off so that I could deep clean our house, we are back at it! First off, our house is clean! It is so nice, and I feel motivated to do one thing a day to keep it up, instead of waiting to do a deep clean when I need to. Dusting everything today only took 20 minutes, instead of 2 hrs. I am hopeful to keep myself going! Next up - we did our maths and reading this morning, and then this afternoon we dove into our Renaissance study. Today we read more about the Renaissance Town of Florence. We read in our Leonardo Da Vinci for Kids - where we learned all about how Da Vinci paid attention to nature, and so for art everyone sketched an animal.👩‍🎨🎨👨‍🎨 Afterwards we learned a bit more about Renaissance festivals, and have a project planned for tomorrow. For lit, we started reading The Apprentice. We are liking these Unit Studies so far! What are some topic ideas for future Units? Thanks! ⬇️ . . . . . . #jwhomeschooling #jwhomeschool #jwhomeschoolers #homeschool #homeschoollife #homeschooladventures #homeed #homeeducation #homeeducated #homeeducatedfamily #homeschooled #homeschooledfamily #homeschooling #homeschoolinglife #homeschoolingadventures #thisishowwehomeschool #thisisourhomeschool #jwartist #jwart #homeschoolingart

Seriously, this happened to me all the time. I'm dabbling in resources for ESL students at the moment. There are generic formats for any teacher to use (see TPT) - that is, a differentiated resource to suit English language beginners. But they also come with the NZCEL criteria for ESL teachers working through those Unit Standards (see the DR store).

O P E N E N D E D P L A Y . . We’ve had a lot of messages about what open ended play means. This is a topic I could spend a good hour talking about, but it can also be easily summed up. It gives children the freedom to be creative. When you put limitations on play, kids don’t have a chance to be creative. If you give a child a Disney princess, they act out what they’ve seen in the movies, you have taken away all of their ability to be creative. Give them dolls without a story, or simple shapes and let them turn them into their own characters what they want, without putting limitations on it. Does all play have to be open ended? No, but we believe the majority should be. Adults seem to forget that kids need to be kids. Everything is pushed on kids super early, which is why open-ended play is even more important than you think. They need open-ended play to exercise their right to be a kid. Let them make flowers out of beans, build forests from wooden dowels. Allow them to use their imagination and don’t put limits on what they can do during play. Adults don’t have to understand it, because KIDS do. It gives them the stepping stones to use their imagination in situations outside of open ended play, so that Disney doll now takes on a whole new life outside of the movies 😉. Try it out with your children, watch what they do and come tell us in the comments how it went! . . . www.mapleandlark.com

“English is a phonetic language, albeit very complex. To teach English well, we need to move away from teaching only the names of the 26 letters and some of their sounds to teaching the true phonograms of English. 🤓 - Phono means “sound” and gram means “picture.” A phonogram , therefore, is a picture that represents a sound. Phonograms may consist of one, two, three, or four letters and may represent from one to six sounds. 😎 - Although most phonograms represent only one sound, a few represent a combination of two or three sounds. 🧐 - Lack of knowledge about English phonograms reduces the ability to decode unfamiliar words encountered in reading.”😞 - -Denise Eide (Uncovering the Logic of English)👏🏻👍🏻

Do you know WHY you homeschool the way you do? Have you taken the time to think about it? ⁠ .⁠ Take some time during your holiday break to make a list of every "subject" you cover during your homeschool week (be sure to include outside activities like co-ops and music lessons).⁠ .⁠ Then pray, think, consider your goals, do some research, talk to your spouse, and if they are old enough, your children. Bounce some ideas off of a trusted friend. Then come up with your reason for teaching every single item on that list.⁠ .⁠ Ponder the following:⁠ 💡⁠ Imagine what your days could be like if they were not crammed so full of busyness.⁠ 💡⁠ Imagine how much time you would have to spend on what is important to your family if you stopped doing what was unimportant.⁠ 💡⁠ Imagine how effective the learning would be in the subjects that have value if you didn't have to do the ones that hold little value.⁠ 💡⁠ Imagine how convicted you would be when faced with opposition (of your own child and the nosy neighbor variety), if you are secure in the knowledge of the importance of what they are learning.⁠ 💡⁠ Imagine how happy your husband will be if the curriculum bill for the year was cut by a third or more.⁠ .⁠ Don't think I am advocating a non-academic education or lack of rigor here. Our homeschool looks more academic this year than it ever has before, because of a choice I made after careful consideration. And yes, I am seeing great rewards.⁠ .⁠ As homeschoolers, we are so blessed. We get to decide what is right for our family and our children. Just please make your reason for teaching what you do based on what is best, not on what is being done down the street.⁠ .⁠ Will you accept the challenge? . #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife #homeschoolplanning #homeschoolingideas #hsplanyouryear #planyouryearhomeschool #hsplanyouryear #homeschoolrocks #becausehomeschool #homeschoolmoms #homeed #homeeducation #homeeducator #homeschooler #homeschoolmama #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolcurriculum #homeschoolfreedom #wildandfreehomeschool #homeschoollikeaboss

Play dough, chocolate peanut butter bites and “Little Women”. These #energybites are my favourite recipe so far, so yummy it feels like a full on dessert. (Recipe link in the comments). For #Manitoba it’s “not that cold” today🥶 🤪 but none of us felt like going outside this morning. So we didn’t! I made some #playdough and read aloud from Little Women while the littles played with it. This book is so well loved, can you tell it’s a favourite? Lol I didn’t have high expectations for attention span with the book, but my daughter asked me to keep reading when I finished a chapter!

I can scarcely comprehend this love, this sacrifice, this gift. It is a gift that all of the diamonds in creation could not come close to purchasing. It is the gift of a Savior. • What can we give as a gift back to our Lord? Nothing would be to great for the King of the universe. But it is not dazzling jewels or lustrous gold which He wants; all he asks for is our love. • In December there is a whirl of things going on and the list of things to do is longer than the day. Like Martha, we get tired and frazzled preparing the feast. But all Jesus wants is for us to come sit at his feet and listen. By focusing our attention on people and memories rather than things of the moment, we are living in the love that Christmas celebrates. • • • • • •#kyaraynesrealm #christmasjoy #reasonfortheseason #thegreatestgift #bestgift #youngauthor #poetsandwriters #christmaslight #celebrating #farmgirl #thoughtsinwords #dailythoughts #devotional #homeschoollife #homeschooledkids #joyofwriting #christmasspirit #homesteadlife #farmkids #youngpoet #writeforlife #poetryauthor #waysofwords

B.I.Adventures #1: ⛴🦀 🌊🐡 Explore Singapore's Wild Shores! . WE LOVE OUR WILD SINGAPORE SHORES! Especially during spring tide intertidal walks! . YES! 🇸🇬 Singapore may seem to be just all urban slick but we have a huge treasure trove of 💎 wild gems right on our shores too! Not many locals and tourists know about it but it is one of the loveliest bits of Singapore we love! And I, M.A. think this makes for a memorable affair, especially if you are travelling through Singapore on a family holiday. . It has been too many moons since we last went out to the beach in Singapore during spring tide. So when we did an intertidal walk at Changi Beach in late October, we were reminded of how much we love to be out there! We loved it so much that we returned there the very next day and we even managed to visit Singapore's first and only marine park at Sisters' Island twice! A grand total of 4 intertidal walks within 4 weeks! . We were blessed to have narrowly missed the rain clouds on our first day out to Sisters Island. You can see how huge that rain cloud column when you scroll right! . There were so many interesting marine life we saw but we can't share them all here. So will just share the highlights of things we spotted for the first time! . 📸 ⛴ 1.Boarding ferry at Marina South Pier 👓 2. The view from the bow ⛈️ 3.

Pulled this off Pinterest and the trick worked like a charm. My daughter was able to quickly rattle off the right answer and my special needs son went from taking a written test answering only 3 problems in 2 minutes, not knowing the rest and only 2 of his 3 were correct to answering every single one correctly in 5 minutes.

“I am just not that disciplined to_______________.” Or “I wish, I was as disciplined as ___________.” 🎄 🎄 🎄 I hear ya, but let’s be honest. We are as disciplined as we want to be. Why not just tell the truth🤷🏼‍♀️. Instead of saying I am not disciplined, why not say. I don’t want to. Honestly that’s what it comes down to. How bad do you want it? Just kinda. I just like to complain about not getting to do it. Not at all. I want super bad but I don’t know where to even to begin. 🎄 🎄 🎄 I have used the excuse I am not disciplined before. It was mostly because I was scared. I was scared of failing. Scared of what others would think of me if I failed. I was scared of proving myself right. That I couldn’t do it. That I couldn’t exercise at home and be healthy. Guess what? I succeeded. I love it more than my gym workouts. I proved myself wrong. It is possible. Not only possible, but easy to do, convenient and not so stressful.

Be a flamingo... and stand out! ⠀ ⠀ Planning a wedding is a lot like running a business; there’s a shit load to do, your resources are limited (usually) & you just want everything to be perfect! ⠀ ⠀ In this post I’m sharing my top 3 tips that apply to both wedding planning AND building a business! ⠀ ⠀ 1. Be yourself! ⠀ ⠀ Celebrate your uniqueness and weave it throughout your Wedding Concept and/or brand. People want to know your story so TELL them! Not just in the speeches or the About page... but in all the little details. Be a flamingo baby!⠀ ⠀ 2. Be consistent ❤️⠀ ⠀ Once you’ve decided on your look and feel COMMIT to it! Get it out of your head and onto paper (or a screen) in a well-presented way and keep it handy all the time. Regardless if it’s a Wedding Concept or a branding guide, use it to help you make all those challenging decisions along the way. ⠀ ⠀ The clearer you are from the beginning, the easier your journey will be!⠀ ⠀ 3. Give yourself a break ☕️⠀ ⠀ When we’re in the thick of implementation and trying to do a hundred things at once, it’s easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed. Don’t be so hard on yourself darling! Remember that Beyoncé wasn’t built in a day and so long as you are still moving forwards, it’s ok to take a breather every now and again. ⠀ ⠀ With that said, I’m declaring a pool day at my place 🌴🌞⠀ ⠀ Like, seriously... what’s the point of living in tropical paradise if you’re stuck inside staring at a screen all day?⠀ ⠀ Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday 🌺

If you give a second plane child an idea, they may need a history book to reference, which will remind them of some art they saw from that time period. This will lead them to wondering where it took place, so they will need to find a map to go with it. . They will then decide they need to trace the map, and recreate the artwork. . As they’re talking about their project they may come across a word that they need a definition for. So they’ll have to pull out a dictionary. Seeing that the word is a noun will remind you both that some pronoun work was printed earlier that day, which will lead to grammar work. This will lead you to recording your favorite parts of speech combinations in your language journal. . All of this will leave the kitchen table looking as pictured 😆

Totally love this boy. We've been working through different composers in a music appreciation program. Decided to skip ahead to the second half of Tchaikovsky's life so we'd finish before The Nutcracker came to town. He was excited for going somewhere with just me. But,he wasn't sure about seeing a ballet. While he isn't a total convert, we had discussions about how much work the kids put into having the performance. And he definitely liked the music. Maybe next year we'll head to the city for a performance with more professional dancers and a live orchestra. He has asked when we can see a musical or some other theater production. Now I am wishing I had splurged more on the arts with my older boys. . . . #homeschoollife #homeschoollookslikethis #supportingthearts #TheNutcracker #SouthernMississippi #MississippiLife #ballet #holidaytraditions #prcc #Holidaytime

"Not everything that counts can be counted. Not everything that can be counted counts." Today was a day for being indoors. For baking cookies, drinking tea, making challah, practicing origami, reading books and poetry, and writing haikus.

Every day I get up and face new challenges, new questions, new “can I really rise up to that next thing in front of me” feelings. I’m just like anyone else and mothering 8 babies is daunting. There‘s a whole lot of falling short by my own standards even if I’m ignoring all the voices outside. There’s just one me and between the pregnancy, kids, business, relationships, ministry, and all the hats that includes, I had a meltdown last week. Like couldn’t stop crying for more than a few minutes together for days and my kids were asking if I was going to be okay as hard as I tried to pull it together for them. But Jesus. And prayer. And people I trusted to hold me up. And oils to help my physical body and brain reset. And supplements because at a point you have to refuel when under stress or the breakdown continues because we are one person - body, soul, and spirit. And habits. I can’t stress how important it is that we have a default, go-to of fighting for more than survival. We have to know so deeply where our Source is that it takes no energy to fall on it. Where it is the most familiar to run to the Home of our souls. Because sometimes the energy won’t be there, and in that place we won’t be able to prepare. No time can be wasted. No time to be off our guard or simply existing in comfort. The simpler, “easier” moments are fully relying on Him for the preparation so that in the struggle moments I am ready, not to power through, but to fall in the right place where I find a God who shows me again who HE says I am. Who I am becoming through Him. The purpose He has created me for. And that is all that matters. And that is where all lasting fulfillment is found. And that is where these 8 miracles will find what they need - not in me. And THAT is the freedom of motherhood. 📷: ❤️

MAGGIE THE MUSIC LADY // . . Music is our thing, maybe it was all the music she heard when I was pregnant and teaching. . . She’s happy, we play music. Sad, we play music. Grumpy, we play music. Tired, it’s music we turn too! Love her little rendition of Daddy finger at the end 😂

Spending some one on one time with which is rare and very precious. Love talking to him about life, challenges and his goals. Probably our last week at the skatepark before it gets busy and we have a break until school is back. The two youngest are at Ferrymead with their Nan today so I'm getting some birthday and Christmas jobs ticked off. Just finished my first batch of unicorn soaps as a thank you present for the party guests. Just over a week and our little princess is 8. #homeschoollife #nzlife #nzmum #skating #nearlyholidays #tickingjobsoff

One of our best road warrior secrets? There is no better time than winter to visit the beach! 🌞 A busy weekend for Kleiner Mann as he completed his 65th Junior Ranger program at Assateague Island National Seashore. We also ceased the opportunity to immerse ourselves into the season at Winterfest of Lights in OCMD and visit our first National Wildlife Refuge: Prime Hook.

One of the best reasons why it's important to teach your kiddos a language before they go to school has a lot to do with their capacity to pick up languages at an early age.⁠⠀ 🇫🇷 ⁠⠀ Studies have shown that kids who learn a language as a child often end up learning to speak the language with a native like proficiency, meaning their ability to communicate both in volume of vocabulary and pronunciation is far higher than if they started when they were older!⁠⠀ ✨⁠⠀ It's one of the main reasons why I taught my kids French when they were toddlers. I'm still amazed at how natural their sweet little accents are!⁠⠀ ✨⁠⠀ What’s one language you would love your kids to learn before they grow up? Comment below 👇🏽⠀⁠
