Well, I'm always looking for ways of keeping both our homeschooling and this group interesting and progressive. So I thought of a new sticky post. Right now it's a work in progress, once we've added a bunch of ideas I'll add it to the directory of helpful posts announcement.

Essentially, I'm trying to find themes - month, topic, letter, etc and a brief description of how to use them..

Add your 2 cents!

Quoting KickButtMama:

Monthly Theme Ideas

I try to have at least 4 themes a month, so we can do 1 per week. I start with January because we homeschool year round. This thread are Themes associated with the month itself. I'll add another for individual topics. These are actually from my Home Education Website, not all the worksheets and such are traditional Preschool stuff, I start working with my boys at 2.5 so by the age of 4 they are really doing K to 1st grade level stuff, so look at the info first to ensure it meshes with your child's level. I haven't added all the links I have as of yet, I'll come back in and add a little more later...

 I love these and will be coming to this to get ideas for next year with my son. We are doing k, but themes will work better with him I think than anything else.
