Love the fall!

Sweaters, crunchy leaves, apples, books, bicycles, stories, cookies, pencils, earlier sunsets....all my favourite fall things about fall. What are yours?

Printable quizzes

September is a great time to check what your students remember. We always had the children put on a blank Canada map "everything you know" and then learn 6 new locations from an atlas.

We've made some crosswords with answer keys that are easy for you to print. The kids can work at them while you finish that last minute planning.

What makes the difference between a subject we love and one we hate?  I sincerely believe that the enjoyment of a subject is completely based on how it is taught.

What people are saying...

  • Jenn said "I turn to your website and products for all my homeschooling social studies needs. My younger kids love exploring Canada through your fun, creative and easy to understand workbook! Canada my Country is a favourite in our home and the kids look forward to that subject each day! The older kids love Courage and Conquest, and have learned so much about our beautiful country."
