More "Last of Summer" Free Papers

My computer with PSE8 and Repper Pro has been on the fritz for a while, so I've just been having fun with papers on my laptop.  These are the same as the ones in the "Last of Summer" Road Trip kit, but with smaller checks.  I think I'll use them to scrap summer picnics because they look like a tablecloth!  :-)

Easy Craft: Dry-Erase Boards

My friend Vicki made the coolest craft with the kids.  A dry-erase board made from a picture frame.  It was quite easy and inexpensive.  Take the back out of a picture frame.  Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit and glue it to the inside of the back of the frame.  Glue a smaller piece of solid paper in the center, and decorate the border with stickers.  Put the frame back together, and decorate the outside of the frame with bling or 3-D embellishments.  Ta-Da!  You have your dry-erase board!  Write on the glass with a dry-erase marker and wipe it right off.  If you are doing the craft with small children, try replacing the glass in the frame with a transparency sheet cut to fit.
We did these for my daughter's birthday party and got the frames for $1 each at the Dollar Tree, and the dry erase markers in a package of 4 for $1; so for 8 girls, the craft only cost about $10.  We had scrapbooking paper and stickers lying around, and I did splurge on some bling for the frames!

You can make them look boyish, too!

Of course, I had to make my own!  My kitchen is decorated in a Coca-Cola theme, so I made this to hang on the wall for grocery lists and notes.

Happy Crafting!

Homeschooling High School

Does homeschooling High School intimidate you?  Do others tell you that you cannot do it?  When we began this homeschool journey almost 10 years ago, I was taking it year by year and thinking maybe I would only homeschool 2 or 3 years.  Homeschooling, however, has fit us like a glove, and now unless something drastic changes, we are committed for the long haul.  As my oldest is beginning 10th Grade and we have one year of High School under our belt, I am far from being an expert, but I have learned a thing or two.  I compiled a list of resources for a friend recently who is pulling her daughter out of public school and beginning homeschool with 9th Grade, and I thought I would share the list here with you.

I am linking to websites with new material; however, you can sometimes find a lot used on eBay, HSLDA's auction site if you are a member, CraigsList, homeschool sales, or through the local homeschool group.  First, here are some places I'd recommend connecting with:

Your State Education Department - See what is required of homeschoolers, what is required for graduation in your state, and whether there is any type of ID Card or discount card that may be helpful.  Sometimes you can get into state museums, zoos, and other resources that would be available for public school students for free or at a discount with a school ID issued by the state.  You may also be able to take advantage of some public school or other educational resources.  You are still paying taxes to the state that pay for public school resources, and there are some that are available for your use.  Make sure you map out what you are doing toward graduation requirements early in the game so that they do not sneak up on you Senior Year.  If your student is near driving age, you will also want to see what classes or tests may be required before getting a license.  You may be able to do these through the public school or arrange to take them privately.

HSLDA- Homeschool Legal Defense Association.  They have some free resources and some members-only.  I definitely recommend becoming a member.  They offer good resources and I think the legal representation for homeschoolers is becoming more and more important to protect our freedoms for the future.  I have looked at a number of transcript forms, and I like theirs the best.  

Local homeschool group - You may or may not want to participate in a co-op, but some groups offer a smorgasbord of field trips and activities from which to choose.  This is a good way for you to get support and for your teen to have a friend-base of others who are homeschooled.  Some groups have proms and graduations together.

Schoolhouse - Just a plethora of information on every subject imaginable from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.  Some free and some members-only.  The Homeschool Planner for High School is invaluable for you and your student, especially if you are just getting started and need help with organization.  The planner has every form and organizational tool you could possibly need.  I use the planners extensively.  You can read The Old Schoolhouse Magazine every month for free.  Here is the link to the latest one:  You can also see different homeschool products reviewed (all ages, elementary and high school) by their review crew here.  I used to be a member of the review crew.  In addition, you may want to follow all or some of the Schoolhouse Review Crew blogs for other homeschool information.  A number of them have students in high school.

Homeschool Freebie of the Day - Check every weekday for a free download or resource.  Some things are useful for high school and others are for younger kids.


If you want an all-in-one package, the big 3 are as follows.  I would not necessarily recommend that for high school, but it might be easier to start that way.

Sonlight - This is, in my opinion, the most comprehensive, all your lesson plans laid out, everything you need comes with it, and possibly the most popular.  The disadvantages for me were that it is also one of the most expensive, and it is much more structured than I prefer, as I have been become more and more eclectic in my school approach over the years.

Abeka - Abeka has a reputation for being highly academic and college-prep with more work-on-your-own things.  Friends of mine with a teaching background use it and love it.  There is an Abeka DVD program, in which the students receive all their teaching from the teachers on DVD and do their work on their own.  Abeka's main criticism is that they are TOO workbook-heavy, and some kids find it overwhelming and boring.  For us, I like something that is partly work-on-your-own and partly taught by me.  

Alpha-Omega - This is the one I used exclusively for elementary and am using partially for high school.  You can get the curriculum in Lifepac (workbooks), SOS (Switched-On Schoolhouse - same curriculum on computer discs), or Monarch (online).  This one has also been criticized for being workbook-heavy but I like it for being straight-forward and not having gaps.  

The above three are all very good curriculums if they suit your budget and style of teaching.  There are many other curriculums out there.  I like to look at personal blogs for reviews by people who are actually using the curriculums and not being paid as affiliates in order to get as unbiased a view as possible.  Many of the publishers offer sample lessons or free trials.

As I said, I've become more and more eclectic the longer I homeschool.  There's just so much good stuff out there!!  Here's what we actually used for 9th Grade, along with a few other suggestions:

English I - I used Excellence in Literature:  Reading and Writing through the Classics, which I had reviewed for the TOS Crew and enjoyed.  (My son did the middle school activities when we reviewed it.  I am now repeating what we reviewed and moving on with him adding in the "honors" high school activities while my younger daughter does the middle school activities.)  This curriculum assumes you've already had all the grammar that you need and works on higher writing and analysis.  If not, you can add a basic grammar workbook.  We used various other supplements for English I and did not complete the EIL, so we are finishing it this year in 10th Grade, and then we will move on to The One Year Adventure Novel.  I'm sure we will continue adding in supplements as well.  I can be easily distracted by good unit studies and activities!

Foreign Language - I used SOS Spanish I.  We liked the elementary SOS Spanish but didn't really care for this one, and I may switch to Rosetta Stone for Spanish II, or find a course where I could enroll my kids with an actual Spanish-speaking teacher.  I am taking a short break from it for the moment.

Math Algebra I - I used the Lifepac workbooks.  I've tried a bunch of different things and surprisingly, my kids really don't care for doing math on the computer as much. They like the workbooks.  Some other good ones to consider are Math-U-SeeSingapore Math, or Pearson.  A lot of people use Saxon, which did not work well for us.  Some good drill programs are Math 911 and IXL.  For 10th Grade, we will continue into Algebra II using AOP Lifepacs.

Science - Apologia Biology - I have used the CD version of Apologia sciences on the computer, but again, my kids prefer the good old textbook for this one.  Along with that, I got the lab kit from Home Science Tools, which actually carries lab kits for any mainline science curriculum you choose.  Then you have all you need for the labs without having to go hunting for it.  I already had a microscope, so I got the microscope kit with some pre-prepared slides and things, and I got the dissection kit complete with 4 shrink-wrapped specimens to dissect.  My younger girls don't like dissecting so much, so I might just let them watch dissections on YouTube videos when we get to that point.  We did Apologia's Physical Science in 8th grade, and we will do Apologia's Chemistry for 10th Grade this year.  Also, along with the Apologia Sciences, I use Knowledge Box Central's study guides.  I get the downloadable versions and print only the pages I need, and it helps the kids set up a beautiful, complete, and well-organized notebook in a 3-ring binder.  Great study help.  Sometimes they go on really good sales.  I used them even before I became an author for that company, so I'm not just trying to garner business for them!  :-)

Social Studies - I did Ancient World History and picked and chose things from different products I'd reviewed, including TruthQuest and Beautiful Feet Books, and lapbooks from Knowledge Box Central.  I like the history through literature (classical) approach.  You could use one book from either of the first two above for a complete curriculum.  You use their guides and check a lot of things out of the library as you go through, making this a versatile and economical study.  We are continuing World History and Geography this year and will probably do some Economics or Civics.  I've thrown some of these in with our Social Studies as we go, but not enough for a High School Credit so far.

Health and Physical Education - We did a PE class with our local homeschool group once a week, and my son played on a basketball team with the YMCA in the spring.  In the past we've done ATA (Karate for Kids), and my older 3 are black belts.  This year we are trying a different type of Tae Kwon Do class.  As for health, I feel like we work that in all the time while we live in our home and do school.  My kids are each responsible for one meal a week (give or take, depending on our schedule), in which they must plan the menu with nutrition in mind, make us a shopping list for what they need, and prepare and serve the dinner on their night.  We of course talk about hygiene and have done unit studies on various health and safety measures.  We've also done the God's Design for Sex series with each individual child, which I highly recommend.

Elective:  We started a Kid Coder computer course, which I hope we'll finish this year.  

If your state does not require you to keep track of hours spent on each subject, a good rule of thumb is that a High School Credit requires about 100 hours of study.  Generally if you complete a mainline High School subject curriculum, such as Algebra, Biology, or World History, it will take about 100 hours.

Some other resources:

Knowledge Quest - timelines, maps, history and geography supplements

Theory of Intelligent Design - I just got this published, if you are interested in teaching ID Theory

Apologia Worldview Curriculum - We are using this now for Bible, along with reading the Bible itself, and using it as part of our Social Studies

Classical Academic Press - I like some of their stuff on logic and debate and would use them if I wanted to teach Latin

Vocab Videos - We used this as part of our language arts in 9th grade as well.  EXCELLENT SAT vocab prep.  I will give the disclaimer that it is not written from a Christian point of view and has some language I didn't appreciate.  Characters used the name of the Lord in vain, etc.

IEW - Institute for Excellence in Writing.  I haven't used it but keep meaning to.  Everyone who uses it loves it.

One Year Adventure Novel - Another writing curriculum.  You can get a free sample to try.  This looks wonderful and I hope to use it next semester.

Dual-Credit Courses - Starting in 11th grade in many places, you can take classes in community college that count for high school and college credit.  Some are free and online.  We plan to do this and it is definitely worth looking into when you get to that point.  It is possible for students to graduate with an Associate's Degree at the same time as they receive their high school diploma.

CurrclickCBD, and Educents - Distributors where you can get discounts on a lot of things.

School Express - More for the younger kids, but can be interesting.  Sign up to get a free unit study every Sunday. - This is where I get the CAT national standardized test every year.  There are a number of options for testing with a group or on your own.  Check with your state for testing requirements.

Pinterest educational boards

Your public library.  If you happen to be military, the libraries on military bases offer some fantastic resources for homeschoolers.

The things above range from free to pricey.  Some of them, if you sign up for a newsletter on their site, will send freebies and coupons periodically.  I spend, on average, about $300 per year per child.  I kind of make my wishlist, then figure out what I really need, and look for deals and used items.

Always feel free to keep checking back to my blog here at Note-able Scraps and seeing what I have under the Homeschooling tab.  If you are beginning homeschooling or considering it, I'd love to talk with you!

For more resources, especially if you are beginning homeschool with younger students, see these Helpful Homeschooling Links.

Happy Homeschooling!  :-)

Tyndale Rewards Program

How many of you have signed up with the Tyndale Rewards Program?  I was a bit skeptical at first, wondering what I would have to do, how much I would have to pay in shipping, and where I would find the hidden catches.  As it turns out, there is nothing hidden.  When you share Tyndale with a friend, post a review, or answer a survey, you get points toward rewards!  (See original post on Tyndale Rewards Program to get requirements and details.)

I earned the pink Camo Bible for my daughter for her birthday, and it was easy!  Tyndale also paid shipping!  I wish this Bible was available in NIV, but I could only get it in the NLT version.  My daughter was ecstatic, anyway!

If you haven't yet signed up for the Tyndale Rewards Program, you may do so at the following link:

The Longest Ride and The Longest Line!

I have not read the book - it just came out yesterday - so I cannot review it or tell you what I think of it. But my daughter and I stood in line 6 hours and 15 minutes to get signed copies of our local author's latest book for my aunt and several friends, so it had better be good!  Also, this one was pretty neat because my friend Laura's horse, Pi, made the back cover, behind Nicholas Sparks.

So now you can amaze your friends and acquaintances by telling them you know the name of the horse with Nicholas Sparks on the back cover of The Longest Ride.  It's Pi.  How do you know that?  Because the horse is the friend of a friend of a friend of a friend!  

Mr. Sparks was very friendly at the book-signing and thanked us for waiting for so long.  I told him that I had gotten one book published and hoped that someday people would support me as enthusiastically as they were supporting him.  Perhaps he will come to my booth at the Mumfest in a few weeks and return the favor.  He probably won't have to wait in line for six hours!!  :-)

Flyby Review: Bash and the Pirate Pig

This past month, we have been privileged to review Bash and the Pirate Pig by Burton Cole.  We have been using it for our daily read-aloud.  If you have an 8-12-year-old who enjoys books like Diary of A Wimpy Kid, this book will be a perfect addition to your library.  Even my jaded 14-year-old likes it!  

You remember what it was like, being at that awkward age between childhood and teen years when you wanted to be so grown up, but you had that childish cousin who was six months younger than you who was always getting you into trouble with his misadventures.  You know, that annoying kid who drove everyone nuts, but even when you tried to make fun of him, he just laughed along with you and considered it part of the fun?  Nothing gets to him, not even when you almost drown in the lake!  Add in the fact that he actually LIKES playing outdoors in the heat instead of sitting inside reading comic books with the AC cranked up, his pirate pig named Gulliver J. McFrederick the Third, and the fact that he's always talking about Jesus and the Bible (the cousin, not the pig), and you have the makings for one rotten summer.  Right?  No?  You mean you might actually start liking his adventures and thinking about that Jesus stuff?  Well, you will never know how the story ends for Ray-Ray Sunbeam Beamer - I mean, Raymond - unless you read the story for yourself!

This is the first book geared toward the preteen set I've read in quite a while that I would so enthusiastically recommend.  Cole's humorous writing conjures up a world of memories from my own childhood while adding some wild adventures and hilarious worst-case scenarios.  (What would happen if you actually DID get those city kids to go cow-tipping?!)  The writing style, characters, and plot-line appealed to all four of my children - ages 7-14 - while teaching some valuable lessons.

About the AuthorBurton Cole is a Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist with thirty years of experience and more than fifty humor writing awards to his credit. He grew up on a farm in northeast Ohio and attended a small-town church with a slew of cousins and buddies. That same boyhood inspires his colorful stories today.  
About the Illustrator Tom Bancroft has more than twenty years of experience in the animation and illustration industry and worked with Disney on films including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Aladdin. Other clients have included DC Comics and Big Idea Productions.

The Little Chapel That Stood

**Reprint from September 11, 2012**
"We raised up the flag from the dust and the pain.
Freedom that's lost must be won again."

The two good giants fell on that grave day in September.  People died.  Rescuers saved lives, and some of the rescuers gave their lives.  My son's friend lost his dad at the age of three.  We do not know why God allows evil people to commit such atrocities in this life, but we know that, just as He controlled Leviathan and Behemoth in the ancient story of Job (Job 40-41), He has put a limit on evil's power in this world.  The border that the devastation could not cross on the 11th of September, 2001, was the unassuming little Chapel of St. Paul, located behind the Twin Towers in New York City.  The blast left rubble in a huge wake and tore the tree adjacent to the Chapel out of the ground by its roots (as is memorialized in the sculpture below), but the building itself was not affected.  

Throughout the day, rescue workers hung their gear on the fence around the little Chapel.  Some never returned to pick it up.  It was a little bit of solace on that day, a reminder that God is still in control.

I never heard anything about the Chapel of St. Paul in the media, and I did not know anything about this story until I saw the chapel when I went to New York several years after the tragedy.  I was awestruck by the simple story and the simple building.  I told my children the story every year.

Last year I found a beautiful picture book that illustrated my sentiments.  The Little Chapel That Stood, by A.B. Curtiss, is a lovely testament to the chapel, to those who lost their lives that day, to the strength of the survivors, and to faith.  It can be ordered from, or you may see it online (free) at

If you are like me and have children, pre-teens, or young teens who do not remember the day that changed their history, and you have been looking for a book to help them understand, please take a look at this poem/story of tragedy and hope.

Another Look at Keyboard Town Pals

I felt I needed to post another mention for Keyboard Town Pals.  We reviewed this program for the Schoolhouse Review Crew about 2 years ago, in November 2011.  I still agree with the review I gave it at that time, that it is a good program for beginning typing with your younger children, up through about 8 years old.  At the time, my 10-year-old thought it was a bit silly, but my 8-year-old liked it and completed the program.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago.  The former 8-year-old who completed the program is now 10.  I realized that I had never done any formal typing lessons with her as I did with the older kids, and she does use the computer quite a lot for school, so I was thinking I should give her a typing class this year. When I observed her typing, however, I realized she was doing quite well without me ever teaching her!  She is using all the right fingers on the right keys and typing relatively quickly without many mistakes.  I asked her how she learned to type so well, if perhaps her sister had been helping her.  She said, "No, Mom.  Remember the keyboard program we reviewed with all the little characters in the town?  I learned with that!"  Truthfully, she did all the free lessons we received for review in one afternoon and maybe spent a week playing with the program, and she learned her fingering very well and it has stuck with her all this time!  This is the most painless way I've taught typing to any of my children, and I think I'm going to have to do it now with my youngest, who is now 7.  If I had older children who were not yet typing well, I'd make them do the program whether they thought it was silly or not!

So if you are looking for typing program for anyone under age 10 or 11, to teach typing or to improve it, I highly recommend Keyboard Town Pals.  I like it better now than I did when I first reviewed it!

Happy Keyboarding!  :-)

Dissections Unlimited

There have been lots of digital scrapbooking freebies lately, but I had intended to post a lot more about the beginning of our school year.  We normally start right after Labor Day, but this year I wanted to get a jump on things, because we just don't know what this year will hold for us, as my husband has retired with 20 years in the Navy and is looking for another job.  We started on August 5, so now - when we would normally be just starting - we have a good month of school under our belt, and it has been quite productive.  One of the favorite activities is always dissecting - well, for some of us!

The crayfish was quite relaxed during the whole procedure, being dead and all:

Father-Son bonding over an earthworm:

I hope to never find an earthworm quite that big in my garden, although I suppose it would be good for fishing bait!

If you are undecided about a science curriculum, I highly recommend Apologia.  I have used quite a few different curriculums.  Sometimes I wish I had used the elementary Apologia books, as they look quite good, but I was very happy with Alpha-Omega's Lifepac and SOS Sciences for the younger grades.  I also liked Christian Kids Explore Chemistry when I had a chance to review it from Bright Ideas Press.  I will probably go back and use that one again with my younger kids.

For high school science that is highly academic and suitable for college prep but that is from a Christian Worldview, nothing beats Apologia Science.   We are using the notebooking, lapbooking, and interactive study guide aids from Knowledge Box Central along with the text, and the result is fabulous notebooks for studying.  I have read that this course of study will prepare a student well for the CLEP exam, so we hope to do that when we finish Apologia Biology.  I'll keep you posted!

Happy dissecting!  :-)
