As a former Pre-Kindergarten teacher and now stay-at-home mommy of 2 boys and a sweet baby girl, many people ask me how they can be implementing educational concepts in the lives of their young children at home before they enter school. Instead of trying to come up with a quick list of ideas off the top of my head to answer these questions, I have decided to put all of my lessons into this blog. I, along with so many other parents, want to be purposeful at home with my children and make the most of the time I have with them.
I hope that this blog can help, encourage, and inspire you to work with your kiddos and
get involved in the learning process! The benefits will be endless,
and the moments you share together will be priceless! As Dr. Seuss once said,
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

Thoroughly Thoughtful Thursday: A Thankful November

* To understand what it means to be thankful
* To think of things we are thankful for and write them down
* To pray to God and thank Him for all of these things

* Materials depend on the thankful project of your choice

Last year for November our family made a thankful tree.  Each day we all wrote down something we were thankful for and placed it on a branch of a decorative tree.  We loved this project so much that we are doing it again!  Here is my post from last Thanksgiving:

* There are lots of other ways you could display the things you are thankful for.  Here are some cute projects you could do with your family:

Enjoy this month praising our Savior for the incredible blessings He gives us each and every day!
