Strengthen Your Family Through Biblical Homeschooling

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!


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.

Free Resource – The 14 Day Starter Bible Devotional for Homeschool Moms!

Bible Devotional for Homeschool Moms

Focusing on the foundation of your homeschool provides a powerful anchor to direct your day and your school teaching to the Gospel. A short focus on the foundation at the beginning of your day will bear massive results.

    Each entry can be read in minutes each day.
    It is amazing how other priorities fall in line when we get the foundation right each day. Starting with the correct priority will minimize distraction.
    Teach Them Diligently is known for addressing the heart of discipleship in homeschooling. Let us help!

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
PBS Kids
Letter of the Week by Confessions of a Homeschooler
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.

Back to Homeschool

Ready or not, the time for starting up the regular routine of homeschooling is upon us (unless you are one of the many who homeschool year round, so you’re well into your routine already!) :) For the rest of us, back to homeschool time is one of the more exciting few weeks of the year. The prep work is fun; our kiddos are as excited as we are to start the new year; and the whole new homeschool year lies ahead of us full of incredible opportunities with no mistakes in it yet. What an amazing time!!

As part of our celebration of back to homeschool this year, I want to make sure you have plenty of resources to encourage your heart and inspire you as you kick off this brand new adventure.  For those of us who have followed God’s call to home education, the opportunities that lie ahead of us are immense– and wonderful. Just think of the discussions that await us… the discipleship opportunities that will happen every day… the incredible blessing of watching those we love most gain new knowledge and understanding of the world around us … and so much more. We are truly most blessed!

Sometimes, though, heading back to homeschool comes with a bit of trepidation and fear. Satan likes to remind us of failures of days gone by. He tries to make us believe we are ill-equipped, ill-educated, ill-prepared for the task at hand. Yet, we can rest assured that God will never call us to do anything that He will not also equip us to do– and to walk with us through it.

“Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” ~ Phillipians 4:6-7

So, for this back to homeschool, go into it with lots of encouragement and inspiration for your heart as the leader of your tribe. Then, go forth, laser-focused on the mission at hand and with expectation of the many ways God will grow both you and your children in the days ahead. I hope I get to hear all about your adventures in the days ahead. Make sure you connect with us on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media platforms, so we can all encourage one another day in and day out.

Each week, we are are going behind-the-scenes to chat with a Teach Them Diligently speaker or exhibitor to help you learn a little more about them. It’s fascinating to hear how their product or brand came to be, how God has led in their lives, and get little tidbits you may never hear otherwise. This week, we’re going behind-the-scenes with Kim Sorgius of Not Consumed.

Kim Sorgius, has been at Teach Them Diligently since the very first year. She came to TTD Spartanburg as an attendee the first year, then joined our team as the resident curriculum specialist for the 2013 season. Since then, she has become one of our most popular speakers. Her resources and sessions are always highly touted.

Kim started her blog, Not Consumed,  to help her stay home and homeschool her four children after becoming a single mom. Having a background in education and curriculum, it was a perfect fit for helping other homeschoolers while providing for her family. Her mission is to help families trust God living #NotConsumed with the every day challenges of life including family life, faith and homeschooling.  She has used the skills God gave her, along with her life experience, to create some of the best homeschool and discipleship resources available today.

What You May Not Know About Kim, in her own words..

I absolutely LOVE teaching and working with middle schoolers, especially 6th graders. They are spunky, full of life and are desperately trying to navigate the new waters of the teen life. One of the reasons I’ve taught this age every single week for nearly 15 years is because I know that my life would have been so very different if someone had come along side and mentored me at that age. I want these kids to have the hope that so many others at their age don’t have.

Make your plans to visit with Kim at all 6 Teach Them Dililgently events in 2018!




Kim is offering some amazing FREE resources for Teach Them Diligently families! Click here to pick up your copy of the Ultimate Family Discipleship Printable Collection, the Ultimate Homeschool Printable Collection, or the Ultimate Christian Holidays Printable Collection.
