Honeybees Continued & a FREEBIE!

Don't you always love it when you find a GREAT piece of curriculum and it's FREE!  Well I hit the jackpot today with this! Get the Buzz on Honeybees  its the entire honeybee lesson plans with all printables and fun stuff for FREE. Scholastic has teamed up with The Bee Movie and provided this awesome lesson!  We started it today and I learned to much in just 30 mins!  If you are thinking on studying honeybees at all this next year or summertime, I would suggest going there!  You can print out the printables, maps and information. A glossary is also provided!  You will have a blast with this.  You can use it for preschoolers on up!  My 4 yr old loved it as well as my 6 yr old. 

Ok on to our lesson today....

Started our Week 3 with our Sun Scholar Program. Today we started
the MAIL unit.  Kids had to mark off on the map where our
mail came from today and then graph the types of mail we received!
(friends, I can't say enough positive things about this program - 12 weeks for $ 50 - SO WORTH IT)

Good thing we had lots of mail today and from all over the U.S.

Happy Dance that our new subscription to Nat Geo came today - bonus - 2 of them!  
I snagged this subscription when it was $ 10 for the entire year on Amazon!  
Already see a unit study on Ants which is next week!

We JUST finished a unit on honeybees, but the kids are still asking questions. Even though our school year has ended, I know they would love this! Thanks so much for sharing! I'm now a follower. :) Have a great day!

Good stuff! Even though we are not homeschooling, I keep borrowing ideas for things to do with the boys. And they're still young enough to think it's just FUN! :)

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
