Outdoor Secrets

Every once in awhile I come across a resource that I really like. We don't follow a set curriculum but like to finds things from all different places to use as resources.  For the month of May we focused on this simple nature study. It is from Simply Charlotte Mason.  It is geared towards 1st and 2nd graders because each lesson is just a brief activity. Read a story and narrate it.  Draw a picture. Copy a sentence from a poem. Really very basic. What we chose to do is combine several lessons each day.  We would spend about 20 minutes each morning doing our nature notebook. The stories are older and very sweet.
I loved how the boys took their time and drew some pretty amazing pictures.We read about insects, plants and animals. Many we already knew much about but there was some new learning going on as well.  It was a nice way to begin our morning. Something we will continue using books from our library.


  1. Thanks for sharing. I like getting a peek into what others are doing on the homeschooling front.

  2. Great resource. Great mom. Great children. Your classroom is where I want to be. Love, XXXOOO
