Scripture memory

I have to admit, I do like this idea as well for scripture memory.

Use clipart to illustrate the verse/s that you are trying to learn. Connect the visual with the mental. :) might help!

Applying Scripture in your home

So ran across this site: Doorposts.

This is a site designed to help people use scripture effectively when they are parenting.
They have a page of free resources, as well as books you can purchase.

One of the things that I don't like about the site, is some of their charts I think are interesting, but would like to actually see the whole thing before ordering it.

Homeschooling with Toddlers

I get a newsletter from Knowledge Quest.

This week they had a link to an article on homeschooling with toddlers in the house. I thought it interesting and helpful.
There are three strategies to use when homeschooling with toddlers in your home and these are 1. Keep them busy, 2. Divide and Conquer and 3. Get Creative.
Some of the ideas listed I liked.
like the one about having a preschool box with activities to do. Just stuff ready to do in a ziploc bag. Takes a bit of prep work...but makes it easier later on.

This one I do all the time:
Put the step stool up to the kitchen sink, close the drain and run a drizzle of water into the sink along with a little bit of dish soap. Give your child some plastic cups, bowls and spoons to "wash". He'll feel glad to know that he is helping with the chores.
The divide and conquer I haven't had to use too much. I only have the one boy...though two dogs so sometimes hubby watches the boy while I walk the dogs. :) Does that count?

So anyways, check it out. Good ideas to be found there.
