  • Homeschooling ~Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is tomorrow.

    It might be odd that I am taking time out of cleaning and baking to do a homeschooling post but I needed a break…

    I was planning on only a couple books about the pilgrims.

    Then every book I requested at our local library came in at the same time…


    We have not read all of these yet and I am not sure if we will.

    I am kind of tired of the whole pilgrim’s first thanksgiving story.

    Our favorites though are:

    The Magic Tree House “Thanksgiving on Thursday”

    Imagination Station “Problems in Plymouth” (similar to the magic tree house)

    “You wouldn’t want to sail on the Mayflower” (We have loved all of the books in this series so far)

    I liked “The pilgrims before the mayflower”, it gave a different part of the story that you do not hear as often.

    The only one of these that we have read is the one on Squanto.

    My oldest read it.

    I try to get him several books to read in the subject we are learning about.

    We made thankfulness books.

    I had them draw a picture of something they were thankful for then write what it is.

    Please ignore the fact I spelled “thankfulness” wrong…


    Since we will be spending the rest of the school year learning about the United States I made a map to add states to as we learn about them.

    I did it the hard way.

    I really like it though so it is okay.

    Okay, breaks over.

    I should get back to my cleaning and baking!

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love!
