Homeschooling and/or Unschooling With Pinterest Series, Post Six


How many of you love Pinterest? I know that I do! I am frequently on Pinterest looking for ideas to use with my children for their learning. This is our first full year of homeschooling and we are definitely beginning to lean more heavily towards unschooling our kids. I currently have over 200 boards on Pinterest, easily divided up into categories so that I can find exactly what I am looking for that goes along best with my children's current interest!

 You can find all of  my Pinterest boards at BeckyatGUNIHCC. Please follow me as I am constantly adding new pins and you don't want to miss out.
This post will be the sixth in a series that will highlight the various boards that I have available. The first post focused more on my three year old daughter who is currently doing upper preschool/lower pre-k work. Please see the first post in this series which focused on teaching your child about rhyming and learning to write their name, the second post which featured all things related to Autumn, including worksheets, snacks, activities and more, the third post that is all about Thanksgiving both the historical portions and yummy food ideas, the fourth post featured Holidays Around the World, and the fifth post focused on Winter activities, snacks, and worksheets.
This post will focus on People We Love and Valentine's Day, plus a little bit of Groundhog's Day and Presidents Day. There will be sections for People We Love Activities, Valentine's Day Themed Worksheets, and Love Themed Recipes and snack ideas. Enjoy!
