This 14 day mini study, pointing kids to the love of God leading up to Valentines Day. Each day has a verse highlighting examples of God’s love for us, or how we are to share that love, and a very short caption. Activities range from simple craft, to glow stick baths, hugs, or letting the light of God’s love shine!

This 14 day mini study was written with tiny humans in mind- prek to about 3rd grade, these activities could easily be expanded or simplified to fit your needs.

This freebie is a quick, easy way to assess students either during class or at the end as an exit slip. The front (first page) gives students the ability to self assess if they understand, sort of understand, or really don’t get it. The back (second page) gives them the chance to write down a specific question and their name. This gives students who don’t feel comfortable asking question, or admitting they don’t understand, the ability to do so in a private manner. You could use this in a classroom, a co-op, or even your homeschool family! Simply print, copy 1 sided->2 sided, and cut between the boxes!

So you don’t have to wonder, “What am I going to do with these kids all summer?”
Summer is my favorite season. I love the warm, the sunshine, and all of the excuses to be outside. Of course the trout fishing isn’t too terrible either. But, like most moms, by some point in May, I’m already thinking, “What are we going to do this summer?” So I sat down and came up with a theme of focus for each week, and made Pinterest boards with ideas already organized. THEN I thought, “Maybe I should just share this.”


These additional units will be available in the coming weeks and months! Each unit has a unit test or reading quizzes, and additional assignments including essay topics, creative projects, and more.
