It’s been a long hard winter, but spring is here! Springtime is that wonderful time of year when life bursts forth—trees and flowers bloom, lambs and calves are born, and baby chicks emerge from their eggs. And here’s a great way to hatch some springtime fun in your kitchen! In this ABC Snacks recipe, your little ones will enjoy an easy-to-prepare “craft” that they can eat when they’re done! These sweet little chicks are not only cute, they’re delicious, too. And best of all, while you’re preparing this protein-packed snack, you can work on the sound of the phonogram /ch/ together.
What drew you to homeschooling?
For me, one of the major benefits of homeschooling was that I could provide lessons that were uniquely tailored to my children’s individual needs.
One subject that I always had to customize for my kids was spelling. In this area they were polar opposites. While my daughter was a natural speller, my son really struggled. It became obvious early on that in order to effectively teach them both, I would need to customize their spelling lessons.

It’s sheep shearing time!
Here in northern Wisconsin, spring is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for the sheep on neighboring farms to be relieved of their dense wool coats before lambing season begins. So each year in the early spring, the itinerant sheep shearer comes to our area and the fun begins!
But not everyone is as excited about that as I am…
