Homeschooling and/or Unschooling With Pinterest Series, Post Seven

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 month we celebrate one full year of homeschooling and we are definitely beginning to lean more heavily towards relaxed homeschooling/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 seventh 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. The sixth post was about People We Love and U.S. Presidents.
This post will focus on transportation, the history of types of transportation, transportation themed snacks, transportation themed worksheets, and a little bit of St. Patrick's Day thrown in. 
 Have fun! Beep beep.....vrroooooommmmm!
