Wow! We love this book!
Lots of information and photos about West Africa along with authentic, easy crafts. One of the best activity books we've seen.

Facing the Lion
True story of a Maasai boy! Fascinating!!!

Hello                                  August, 2010

Here are some inspiring planning helps.
School Planning

Here are some final planning tips as you get ready for the NEW school year!!!
Make a booklet for each child to be in charge of their own lesson completion. This will save you from constantly having to manage each child and it builds self-discipline and industriousness into your child.
See Donna Young's free student planner you can customize online. Scroll down on the webpage to fill in the fields with the child's name, grade, subjects etc. and generate a planner with all the pertinant information. Customizable planner

Reading Lists - If I could do it over again!

We read SO many great books over the years but didn't keep a thorough title list. I definately encourage you and your kids to do this!

Remembering favourite books is like chatting with old friends; those characters we love and identify with.

I love Lisa's free printable Reading Logs. Add to each child's reading list each year. Give rewards for numbers of books read.

One creative Mom is putting together a memory box for each child as a gift when they leave home. Special books will be part of the collection. What a GREAT idea!!!!
