Favourites from the Homeschool Collection!

 Favourites from the Homeschool Collection!

There's only TWO DAYS LEFT to grab this amazing deal of a bundle for homeschoolers! This is absolutely one of my favourites that I've participated in - there is literally so much goodness in here!
Although there are 66 products and I wish I could show them ALL to you - I've decided to share a few of my favourites that we will be using in our own homeschool this year!

I Survived Unit Studies

There is so much great history to be discovered through novels! I myself have learned so much by reading both fiction and nonfiction about different time periods, how people acted and reacted to situations, and how it truly felt to be a part of a major historical event - for better or worse. That's why I love the series 'I Survived' There are so many different novels full of stories to explore and learn about.

This unit study helps you do just that - but really dig into events and the people, places, and aftermath surrounding them. This unit has students make a beautiful lapbook to display the information they learn through the story and further research. It gives links, and ideas for integrating the unit study into geography, history, and even art. I had actually bought this book just a few weeks ago to use with my kids this year, so I was so pleasantly surprised to find this unit study in the Homeschool Collection Bundle!

Marine Science

I have to start off by saying that this book is HUGE! It covers the topic of marine science so completely, I believe it would be a great addition to any homeschool high school or middle school. It is basically a huge textbook! For kids like one of mine who are really interested in marine science, it's a great way to dive really deep into the topic.

The unit includes texts, vocabulary pages, comprehension questions, projects, and more! I really cannot wait to dive into this one with my kids soon!

Simple Machines

I have a third grader this year and so really want to do a unit with them all about simple machines, how they work, and why they're so important to our everyday lives. This unit fits that need perfectly!

Full of posters, texts, questions, quizzes, and more, it's a great way to introduce the concept and cover all of the basics without feeling too overwhelmed. The information is short and to the point (which I love for that age!) and covers everything kids need to know about pulleys, wheels and axels, screws, and more.


I know that there's a popular question going around the internet nowadays - why didn't they teach us how to do taxes/banking/etc in school. Well this unit does just that and it is AMAZING!

Now only does it go over the history of money and bartering, but it also covers basics like how to write a check or read a debit card, how to file taxes, how to budget, producers and consumers, loans and savings, salaries - everything your kids need to know about how the finance world works! This is another one I'm super excited to use with my own kids.

Science and Art Combined!

My youngest kiddo really loves to draw. She also really loves animals, making this unit a win for her. Including units on dogs, amphibians and reptiles, Australian animals, horses, dinosaurs, invertebrates, mammals, ocean animals, sharks, and types of fish!

It gives kids basic information about each type of animal and shows them how to draw it using the grid method - but makes it super simple. There are also some great comprehension pages to show what they've learned - perfect for portfolios and just for fun!

Art and Poetry

Art and poetry are something I always love to include in our homeschool. So I was so excited to see this unit included in the Homeschool Collection too! It's a super simple way to include both in your homeschool.

Each month is filled with poems and artwork to use how you see fit. But there are also some great questions to ask and discuss with your kids while you study the poems and art, along with some fun ideas to inspire you.

I really hope you've enjoyed this quick preview of just a few of my favourite products! Remember that the sale is only on for 2 more days, and then it will be gone for good! This is such a great opportunity to grab some extras for your homeschool that you can use for years to come.

Be sure to take a look!
Enjoy your day!


Fraction Match! With Google Slides

 Fraction Match! With Google Slides

When it comes to first teaching fractions, teaching concepts first and foremost is most important. Learners need to know that a fraction represents an amount less than one, the names of the parts, and to see visual models and real-life models of what they look like.

But after these first crucial steps, it's also important for kids to begin to easily recognize a fraction model. Just as they learn to recognize and solve addition and subtraction facts, learning to recognize different fractional parts is important too.

These slides are a great way to get your students to practice this skill independently.

These slides include two different options. You can mix and match the two, or use the ones that suit your needs best.

In the first 10 slides, students will match fractions to the correct models. There are 5 on each page, so it's a quick way to get in extra practice without overwhelming your young learners.

The next 10 slides include words that kids will match to the fraction models. This is great for kids who struggle with problem-solving and will help them visualize the parts of fractions in problems.

There are plenty of different shapes for students to see too, which helps them broaden their perception of what a fractional part is, beyond just the regular circles and rectangles.

You can snag this set of slides in one of my shops using the options below. The entire set costs just $2! It's a great resource that can be used over and over again throughout the years and is easy to send out to students and assign.
