The Great 2014 Insect search!!

I sat down and had a long discussion with my 9 year old about what she would like to do for the summer session.  We school year round.  But it can be so hot here from May-Oct.  We do live on the Texas Gulf Coast.

The library book program was on top of the list of course.  She also decided that she wanted to do a insect study and make a notebook/lapbook to go with it. 

I have started a Pinterest board to put links for all things insect.  Please stop and visit. 

I would be so grateful for any links or suggestions that you might have.

I am working on a book list next.  I will post that as soon as I get it done.  I think I am going to start with 10 books.  Any ideas for an almost 10 year old girl who loves adventure? 

Have a beautiful day.

What we are doing now.

We are working thru the Middle Ages.  We are using this wonderful book that we got from Rainbow Resources Center. 

We are doing this one notebook/lapbook style.  If you browse the web, you can find tons of Middle Ages freebies.

Since I am now working full time, using notebook/lapbook style is helpful to keep my Rooster and I on the same page.  He works with her when I am at work.

What are you using for history right now?
