The Schoolhouse Dailies section of the site offers even more content.  These currently include Ditch the Desk-Hands On Activities, Summer Olympics, Summer Shakespeare, Daily Math, Daily Grammar, Daily Writing, Everyday Easels, Everyday Explorers, and more!  


I TOLD you there was a ton of stuff here to explore!

Every time I log on, I find new content, and that excites me as I head into a new school year!  I will tell you that one of my favorite parts of the site is the Daily Extras—Ditch the Desk feature.  Here’s an example of what Abbey and I did one day, based on a lesson plan from this section of the site.  



We baked a batch of brownies together, let them cool and then did the following activities with them:
  • ·         Cut 1/3 of the pan into 1-inch squares.
  • ·         Estimated how many 1-inch squares we could get out of the entire pan.
  • ·         Learned how to figure perimeter and area of the cut area, and then of the entire pan.
  • ·         Re-read The Three Little Pigs in preparation for the next steps of the differences in building a house.
  •        Read in Matthew 24 about the importance of building your spiritual house on the Rock.
  •        Took the cut squares, ready-made frosting, and spaghetti noodles and allowed her to use her engineering skills to build the most-sturdy house she could. 
·         It got terribly messy, but man, did she have fun! She had no idea how much math we snuck in that day!
