  2. I love holiday themed things for homeschool. It makes learning more fun for the kiddos. I think you can turn just about any holiday into a lesson.

    Thought I might add the following May holiday spelling/vocabulary/handwriting lists to your list for all the homeschooler out there. 🙂 Vocabulary Spelling City lets the kids practice, test, play games, use flash cards, practice handwriting and vocabulary at their free site. It’s one of my fave sites.
