Sweet Finds Saturday

It is time for another Sweet Finds Saturday.

  1. I absolutely loved this homemade play kitchen made out of an entertainment center. It is amazing.
  2. This homemade design notebook is inspiring and might help me keep track of all the little scraps that I rip out of the fliers and catalogs when I am inspired.
  3. Jimmie has a sneaky way of educating. I think I like it. I found this post today about teaching Geography Without A Curriculum simply by integrating it when it comes up. I like this approach. It makes for a more natural way of learning things and more importantly learning to look for information when you need it instead of simply taking information that is handed to you.
  4. I am intrigued by this Math Notebooking Squidoo Lense. I love this way of learning. Moses is always writing out math problems and I could just Set The Manipulatives Free and he would be in heaven.
  5. Have you seen these awesome shape book patterns from eduplace.com? They are amazing. You could use them for all different kinds of projects (like mini book reports).

What are your sweet finds for this week?

I have been using Delicious to store my bookmarks and great finds. You can see it located on the left sidebar of my blog. It will update as I add new sweet finds to it during the week.

Here are some of my favorites for this week:

  1. I found this fun site loaded with simple songs and finger plays that will be perfect for singing with the twins.
  2. Jimmie from Jimmie’s Collage had this awesome post about sneaking in writing practice . I am looking forward to trying out some of these awesome ideas with my kids (most of whom resist printing in any form).
  3. I loved this post about loving your home and not your stuff. You can check out the whole series here about falling in love with your home.
  4. I loved this article on the 5 Best Toys that was floating around twitter recently.
  5. I have had this link on my list to include for a long time now. Amy has some great information about How to Write an Ebook. Check it out.

I have 2 questions for you:

  1. Are you using Delicious yet?
  2. What are your Sweet Finds for this week?

Did you see my post on the Homeschool Classroom this week? I have been receiving some very positive comments and I am so thankful that others were able to find it encouraging. Here is the link in case you want to check it out. Finding Time to Nurture Your Passions.

That wasn’t one of my sweet finds and neither is this, but you will definitely want to check out the other awesome posts on the Homeschool Classroom while you are there.

Jimmie left a comment on my post and I wanted to share her blog,  Jimmie’s Collage which is awesome and creative.

She also has another blog called the Notebooking Fairy which you will definitely want to check out.

Jimmie also has a button for the Heart of the Matter Online Homeschool Conference in February. I was just at one of those. Oh wait, that was several months ago. It was amazing. So refreshing. I can’t wait to go again. Check it out. I am definitely going again.

I also have another fun blog for you. Have you ever been to the Activity Mom’s blog?

She has an awesome Etsy store as well, Time For Tots. I am going to be spending some time looking around there because I need some activities for the twins.

Well, those are all of my Sweet Finds for today.

Leave a note in the comments if you have any Sweet Finds.
