Homeschooling Using The The Thinking Tree Journals & Dyslexia Games

What do you get when you add Dyslexia Games and The Thinking Tree Homeschooling Journals to your homeschool day?!?! A fresh new fun way to homeschool.

This is a nice change for us here at Homeschooling6. We need a little change and something that’s not so ordinary.

All week Ethan & Lance have been completing 10 pages from their Do-it-Yourself Homeschooling Journals.

Here are some pages from The Hyper-Active Homeschooling Journal that Lance is using.

When Lance missed something like the other half of the cat's smile, I'll point it out to him. I'll ask him to look at what he added and see if he can find what he missed. I don't say things like you did it wrong.

I love homeschooling my kiddos because they don’t have to sit at a desk.

Each day the boys have to read 4 books from their stack. They read each book for 15 minutes and write or draw about it in their journals.

Here is Ethan completing his assignment.

Ethan has been reading about comets, the moon, and space. I didn’t know he was interested in that (bad mama).

Thanks to The Thinking Tree my boys are reading more. It’s interesting to see what they choose to read.

Here are some pages that Ethan completed. He’s using The Eclectic Journal.

I need to get a picture of Caleb my 15 year old son using his. He uses his twice a week. It’s a nice break from his regular studies.

Even Flat Danny (that’s the name of this one sent to Caleb from his cousin in CA) wanted to use The Thinking Tree Homeschooling Journals!

The kids and I are also using Dyslexia Games. We each do 3 pages a day.

  3. I'm so very behind in commenting, but have always had you on my heart. Life has been quite busy, but I've been blessed in allowing the conviction of my heart to rekindle the writer in me. I wasn't sure that I would ever find a niche to bring back a joy in blogging, but I kept praying and remained faithful that eventually it would flow again and I wouldn't feel so lost. I'm only sharing this with a few ( chasingslow.blogspot.com) and leaving my other blog up.

    Since we last chatted, my husband had surgery, my daughter is recovering from a concussion, my ears are still flaring....so much going on and yet we plug away homeschooling and getting through each moment.

    We were really hoping to make a trip out to Texas this month, but with my husband's surgery, we just don't have the money. He'll be out of work until the end of December.

    I miss you and think of you with every sip of coffee!!!

  4. You've been on my heart!!! I'm going to stop by and visit your blog.

    We'd have loved to see you and your family. It would have been fun. I think of you too when I make my daily cup of java. I love you my special friend!
