You ever have one of those weeks when your lesson plan is just “blah”? I have. There have been so many times that I didn’t want to cover a certain topic with the kids, simply because I couldn’t think of a way to make it fun. Enter the Internet! 🙂

Here are my favorite posts for this week!
1. If you’ve been holding out on covering geography because you have young kids, try these great tips for teaching geography to young kids from Planet Smarty!
2. Book lists are great for introducing kids to new ideas. Crystal and Comp has a fabulous list of 25 books for kids about fall leaves!
3. If you have kids who don’t particularly like math, make it fun with spirographs! Science Kiddo has a great post to help you learn how to draw spirographs with your kids.
4. We use a chalkboard with our kids and we’ve found it to be a great help. If you want to make one yourself, Greatly Blessed has a great DIY chalkboard tutorial! You can even make it a project for the whole family and cover crafts at the same time. 🙂
