We have always used curriculum set forth by others. A bought program to guide us in teaching. But today we toyed around with a new idea. We bought a laser printer, which means not running out of ink every single week, and started our search on the Web for free ideas and resources. And I must say, the options are many! We worked on cursive thanks to educents Incredibles printables, read a story of Joey the Superhero, read poetry, and much more. You can find information quickly, print it out, and be out of that rut in no time.
My 8 year old is getting involved in adult coloring, which serves as great art! Her cursive is getting very fancy, and I could not be prouder.
I highly suggest this printer. It’s a lbp 6030 w. I paid approximately $80, and it is awesome. Please comment below your ideas for mixing it up.
