Se7en’s June…

DSC_0615

A Couple of our readers have asked us how we use our calendar posts for school. These posts began, and have grown, simply because it was interesting to see what events were occurring on a particular day. We don’t celebrate everyday – but we could!!! At the beginning of each month we print out a new calendar. Then we read through the blog post and pick the days that we would like to celebrate. We write those days out onto our calendar and pop the calendar onto the fridge.

      Wow – that is amazing!!! How can there be so many fun things to do in one month :)
      thankyou for the time you must have put into that. Do you make these for every month? How do you fit this into your homeschooling, there is enough to do just with this list, do you also have regualr curriculum you follow?
      thanks

If you look on the right hand side of the blog you will fund buttons for our calendar posts… Slowly but surely they get improved … month by month, you can find the whole collection in the Almanac post, all together it is quite fun to search for a particular person or event.
