Homeschool share has a new section for the workboxes. I'm not doing workboxes, but I found a nice insect classification game there. I, also, found a months of a year print out. Oh and some insect dominoes (we glued these to cereal boxes and they dried today..he can't wait to play tomorrow).


My 1st grader is not independent. But, I'm finding I need some things to keep him busy while I'm with someone else. If I don't he will end up wandering off. He gets into "trouble" :D easily. But, I'm looking for educational things. He loves this kind of stuff.


I like the idea of having a few things I can put together that are related to what we are studying or that hit on things a young boy needs to learn anyway.

the computer is good for that. We were using the computer anyway, but when it is done is dependent on circumstances. He has Earobics, ETC Online, Quartermile Math (btw $15 for a 1yr subscription for all 3 levels!), Literactive, Starfall (not so much).


Puzzles, US/World maps, file folder games, wrap-ups, etc also.


I can't think much this morning. LOL.
