homeschool winter ideas in january

January can be one of the hardest months to get through schooling. By now the hoopla of the holidays are over and we are staring January square in the face. The Christmas tree is finally down, and it’s time to settle back into our homeschooling schedule. The grunts and groans are not only coming from the kids, we feel it too.

One of sport’s greatest strategies is to play each player to his strengths. If Harry can hit well, don’t put him as catcher. If Tom can run, put him in the outfield. Let the New Year work for you by switching things up:

  • Add something new to your homeschool.
  • Do something different.
  •  Switch up the schedule.
  • Play to the strengths of being inside more.
  • Start (or join) a co-op or a book club.
  • Make tents and as a reward, let them do their school work underneath it.
  • Have a Hot Chocolate Dreaming Party next to the fireplace.
  • Plan a slumber party in the living room on a Friday night and talk about family bucket list living This term has expanded in recent years to include goals for certain time frames, such as before I grow up, etc. Kids love to feel that their contributions count and what better way to bond together as a family than to help each other fulfill dreams.
  • Maryalice Leister at MyKidsAdventures.com encourages families to write down their list so they will have options ready at a moment’s notice. Put their dreams in a jar, write them on a poster, or attach clothespins onto a bucket.

It’s true our kids would much rather be outside building a snowman than studying books. Why not play to its strengths? Study snow, measure snow, taste snow, make snow cones, snow forts, snowmen, chart weather patterns, study Alaska, Iceland, Sweden.

One of my favorite January boosts is to have a Snowman Party! We decorate the house by hanging homemade snowflakes and paper chains. We make fun snowflake stars and bake snowman treats. We invite friends over to share in the fun! Before you know it January will take on new meaning and everyone can settle happily into the New Year.

jar of crayons and child coloring

FREE Color by Vowel Pattern Pack- Winter Theme | Teach Them DiligentlyDo you have elementary-aged kids that like to color? My oldest, when in 2nd grade especially liked it and often felt left out when I printed coloring activities for the younger three. Coloring pages for older kids that work on literacy skills are a bit tricky to find. So, I followed my son’s lead and created a Color by Vowel Pattern Pack with a winter theme.

In this pack, you’ll find seven different coloring pages that feature a vowel pattern. The first page starts with short vowel words (like rat, bug, and not) and was created for those young readers who need to work on short vowels. Each subsequent coloring page features a harder phonics skill, moving through blends, digraphs, long vowels, and other more ambiguous vowels (such as aw and oi).

Silent e Color by Word Pattern ExampleThe child uses the color key provided on each page to color the picture in by the phonics or vowel pattern. Please note that while your child might like to do all of the pages, I suggest picking the one (or two) that best fit with the developmental stage of your child. For example, if your child is working on reading words with silent e, use the sheets that feature that particular phonics skill.

Vowel Pattern Practice

The idea is to give kids practice reading words with specific phonics or word patterns. Learning to read and spell by phonics pattern is key for young readers and writers. Tons of words are spelled using the most common word/phonics patterns, like the ones I included in this printable chart, so your child will encounter these word patterns a lot when reading. For example, if a young reader can understand that the ai in rain makes the long a sound, she can look at a word like braid and figure it out by the ai pattern. Knowing the word pattern ai helps her to read AND spell the word (and most other words that contain ai).

First and foremost, I am a daughter of the King. I am also a homeschooling mama with four little blessings. Before having children, I was a classroom teacher, both in the private and public school setting for 6 years. I got my M.Ed. in Elementary Reading and then had my first son. I began tutoring K-5 struggling readers privately out of my home until having my first child (2012).

I did not plan on homeschooling {I actually said I’d “never” homeschool, but the Lord called me to it in 2009}. Homeschooling was a bit lonelier than I expected. So in 2010, I started blogging as a way to share ideas with other parents, teachers, and tutors.

I never dreamed that God would use my blog in so many ways. I have been able to use it as a platform for writing curricula, authoring books, creating learning apps, and speaking at homeschooling conferences and MOPS groups. Through my blog, I have shared many articles, activities and free printables.

alphabet refrigerator magnets

Here are eight fantastic ways to promote pre-reading skills (without mess or fuss!) using alphabet refrigerator magnets.

8 Ways to Use Refrigerator Magnets - All About Learning Press

The letter sets with uppercase and lowercase for the activities below are perfect because the color of the letters match the letter tiles used in All About Reading and All About Spelling, but you can use any set that you have on hand. And if magnets don’t stick to your fridge, you can do these same activities using a metal baking sheet or the front of your dishwasher.

 

Alphabet Soup

Pour all your letters into a sauce pan or soup pot. Have your little one give the soup a stir and dish up some “Alphabet Soup”! Hold out your bowl while your young chef serves you up some “A Soup” or “F Soup” (or whatever variety is the special of the day!).

Alphabet Train

Mix up the letters in random order. Show your child how she can make a “train” by placing the letters in alphabetical order, singing the Alphabet Song as she goes.

Letter Lookout

Help your child recognize that there are letters everywhere! Pick out a few picture books or boxes of food. Have your child choose a magnetic letter from the fridge and try to find that same letter in the book or on a box.

Mix-n-Match ‘Em

Arrange the letters right side up and have your child organize the letters in matching sets. For example, can she find all the letters that have long sticks? How about short sticks? Can she find letters with circles? How about letters with dots? Sort out all the red letters. Can she find the letters in her name? How about the letters in her friend’s name?

Hide-n-Go Letter Seek

Scatter your letters around your school room or living room. (To avoid frustration, be careful not to hide them TOO well!) Give your child a basket and encourage her to say the name of the letters as she collects each one. You can use this activity to increase phonological awareness by calling out the sound of each letter instead of the name of the letter. Download our free Letter Sounds app if you need to refresh your memory on the sounds of the 26 alphabet letters.

Dig for Buried Letters

Bury your letters in a large bowl filled with lentils, rice, or cracked wheat. Have your child dig for the letters with a magnetic wand. As she finds each letter, have her shout out the letter’s name and the sound it makes.

Go Fish

You can use your magnetic wand for this activity too! Make a fishing pole by tying a string to the end of a yard stick and then tying the magnetic wand to the end of the string. Spread your refrigerator magnets on the floor, and it’s time to go fishing! Have your child dangle the magnet wand to catch “fish.” Have her say the name and/or sound of each “fish” she catches.

Word Wranglers

This one is the most advanced of all the activities, but it’s perfect if your child is at the beginning reading stage. This activity will help your child learn that you can create new words by manipulating and changing sounds. Build an easy three-letter word on the refrigerator. See how many new words you can make by changing the beginning and/or ending sounds. Here’s one using beginning sounds: Start with cat. Change the beginning sound to make fat, pat, and hat. Now start with bug and change the ending sound to make bun, bus, and but.

In Summary

Interacting with letters helps your little ones get ready for reading and spelling. With these simple activities, your child will develop print awareness, letter knowledge, phonological awareness, and listening comprehension—four out of the Big Five Skills that lay the foundation for learning to read and spell. (To add the fifth pre-reading skill, motivation to read, share some great picture books with your child!)

There are many ways to help your child become more proficient in typing skills.  And, it can be achieved without paying an arm and a leg for proper keyboarding skills, as many are free.

Typing programs can make it enjoyable for kids to learn. Imagination Soup has compiled an impressive list that may be beneficial for your student. Here are just a few options:

There are definitely more resources where these came from, and many according to each child’s specific need. Online typing  tutors such as Power Typing and Kiran’s Typing Tutor Software, are also options. These will help strengthen their skills upon learning proper techniques, etc.

Another recent program called TypingWeb, is free and offers tracking and games. It can be good to add supplements in curriculums for skills that may easily fall through the cracks.

Technology is constantly advancing. It is essential to keep kids aware of and on top of new techniques, while keeping a balance with old fashioned skills. Typing is also important in enhancing future job skills, blogging, business, and much more.

Even though we want children writing with good old pencil and paper, it’s crucial to get them proficient with typing skills as well in their writing for college papers, etc. Keeping kids in the dark will only hinder their development.

Middle school students are mature enough to begin thinking more deeply about Thanksgiving. They are able to complete more complex assignments about the related history. Thanksgiving unit studies for middle school students create hands-on learning opportunities when holiday excitement makes it hard to concentrate on text books.

Children who enjoy role playing may enjoy creating costumes and writing plays for friends and family to participate in. Costume making combines history and home economics subjects. Who doesn’t like getting two for one? Perhaps your reluctant writer will forget to be reluctant when carried away by writing the play?

Ways to Teach the History of Thanksgiving

Unit studies allow elementary and older children to work on the same historical time period together. Expand the requirements for an elementary unit study to make it middle school appropriate.

1)  Research Pilgrim-era games and teach them to younger friends and family during the holidays.

2) Create a timeline of Pilgrim leaders and other historical figures who lived at the same time, etc.

3) Identify the character traits, good and bad, of the major figures in the Pilgrim story. Did those traits help or hurt the person? Which of those traits to you see in yourself?

4) Computer savvy youngsters may want to create a power point presentation of their findings on a Thanksgiving related topic.

Nothing like knocking out two subjects with one assignment!

Resources

Visit the Thanksgiving unit study at 123 Homeschool 4 Me. Ideas include: costumes, quills, DIY marbles, Johnny Cakes, and book printables. I love the hands on activites included in this engaging unit study. Especially for a youngster who learns by doing more than reading, hands on activities make learning easier.

Want to teach your middle school student more about Plymouth Rock? Take the ideas from Fall Into First and create more challenging tasks for middle schoolers while working with younger ones on the same topics.

Love Pinterest? Amanda Bennett has a wonderful board of unit study ideas.

The website In All You Do offers a free printable Thanksgiving unit study for pre-K through 5th grade.

Field of Daisies has listings of poems, audiobooks, a play, science activities, and loads of cooking fun tucked inside the Old Fashioned Thanksgiving unit study. Math, music, Bible studies and  printables round out this wonderful resource.

Unit studies may seem challenging for moms who are more comfortable with text book based learning. The holiday season is a good time to try one on for size. Offer your middle schoolers the opportunity to use unit studies and broaden their understanding of colonial history while celebrating Thanksgiving.

Preschool Minds

If your child is in the preschool years, you know this is an exciting time for them. From learning their ABC’s to tying their shoes, preschoolers naturally soak in more information than you may think. Their little minds are fresh and ready to be educated in a variety of forms. What about early literacy? Are preschoolers too young to learn how to read?

Early Literacy

The common misconception of early literacy in this age group is that they must learn how to read words on a page or in a book. This is not entirely true. Early literacy can include picture books, arts and crafts revolving around reading, and much more. Reading aloud to your child is the best way to encourage reading.

Every child learns with different approaches and different speeds. If you want to encourage the reading of words, start small with phonics and sounds, sight words, and more.  If you are researching or simply just searching for resources that cater to your preschool child, there are a variety of ideas out there that your child may benefit from and many of them are free.

Free Resources

An early literacy checklist for preschoolers found at Wild Flower Ramblings, is a free printable for you to use ranging from recognizing upper and lower case letters to writing lowercase letters with proper pencil grip.

Are you searching for preschool phonics books? Look no further, here free printable preschool phonics books from The Measured Mom. I used something similar to this when my youngest was in preschool and it worked out wonderfully.

What about classic preschool books? Check out No Time for Flashcards –  they give an awesome pictured list of books that preschoolers must have.

Do you want to teach your preschooler proper vowel sounds? Here is a great resource by Kindergarten Kiosk on how to conquer vowel sounds with proper mouth positions. I wish I had found this with my youngest as she struggled with vowel sounds due to speech difficulties.

If you want to promote early literacy in a way you never thought to before, check out This Reading Mama she offers ideas on how you can organize your home to promote literacy. This is an amazing idea!

In Summary

As you can see, there are so many ways you can encourage early literacy and it can be fun and enjoyable. Are you craving more ideas? Pinterest has got your back. As I have said in previous posts, it’s my go to for the majority of my homeschool resources. Click here to open the door for a variety of ideas. Keep your notebook and pen handy!

Do you have a preschooler this fall and need a curriculum? Many homeschooling parents get concerned that they will not be able to homeschool their preschooler from home. Are there free curriculums that are designed specifically for them and cater to their developmental needs? Yes!

Prior to homeschooling my girls, I taught preschool and PreK.  I have researched high and low supplemental programs through the years and have found many to be pretty successful and yes, free. There are even new ideas out there as well.

Here is a list of some free curriculums out there designed specifically for the preschool child:

Easy Peasy All In One Homeschool
Starfall
PBS Kids
1+1+1=1
Letter of the Week by Confessions of a Homeschooler
Kinderplans
Cornerstone Confessions
Kids Learning Station

If you do a broad search online for free preschool printables, there are a variety of resources available.
Some may not offer all out curriculums but maybe free printables, etc. My favorite program for
preschool reading, etc., is Starfall. Two out of three of my homeschool students used this and they are
advanced readers to this day. It’s fantastic!

I like that some of the curriculum programs offer a nice balanced option of online learning (to keep kids up to date with advancing technology), and printables. Children as young as the preschool years are learning a bit more than they used to. These curriculums keep some of the traditional learning styles for dedicated homeschooling parents.
If you know of any other free preschool curriculum out there not listed here, feel free to share them with us.
