Homeschool? Teaching?

  Yes, that is on my new to-do list....everyday!  I started homeschooling my daughter, Olivia, in September 2012.  She is a first grader and we are having a blast.  I am definitely learning as we go but thought you might like to share in some of the fun we are having.  I will do my best to describe or link up to any projects we do so you can have instructions to follow.

When my first grader asked me about Hanukkah, I decided to do a unit study with her.  We made these two menorahs.  One used candles, and a safer version for my younger daughter that used tea lights.  Click here to see the directions for both menorahs.
