What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth is coming soon!

“Juneteenth is short for June Nineteenth. June 19th is a holiday that marks the day that enslaved people that lived in our country, found out that they were legally free. It isn’t a national holiday, yet, but it’s important to know about. Teach your students about this day and enjoy the powerful conversations that will follow!”

~ quote from Read Like a Rock Star {Naomi}  and Education with an Apron {LaNesha}, grab their Juneteenth eBook & discussion guide here!

Grab some books from the library or order from Amazon to add to your home collection. Books are such a great way to get discussions going and bring learning as a family. I’ll be honest, until recent years I was totally unfamiliar with Juneteenth. My journey as a white woman is constant and I am bringing my kids along with me!

Let’s Draw Flowers ~ Free Printables!

Let's Draw Flowers - Free Printables

I love to draw but am not a natural artist. I love drawing tutorials and have used them in my homeschool with my kids for years. When I saw this fabulous set of flower drawing tutorials in a clipart collection I was thrilled to create a set of printables for you to use.

There are 6 different flowers included: daffodil, rose, bellflower, cornflower, violet and poppy. Each flower has a full size page with the drawing steps on the left and a blank area to draw on the right. This way you can easily trim off the tutorial if you want to display just your child’s drawing!
