St Aiden’s Homeschool ~ New Updates and Downloads :)

I have added new sections and additional pages to a lot of sections within the site.  In Keeping with the October Educators’ Calendar I focus on the following sections:
October is Fire Safety Month in commemoration of the Great Fire of Chicago that occurred on 08/09 October 1871.  In addition to literally hundreds of free printable educational activities, Staying Alive provides a full FREE curriculum, and game download which you can access from the Fire Safety page of our site…. Colouring and Activity books are available within this section and you are invited to download any or all of the resources.
Columbus Day pages have been updated and include additional activities available for download.
Grade K-4 Themes have been updated and most now also include self-extracting interactive jigsaw puzzles that you can download to your own PC… My kids (and I) have enormous fun with these.
You might be interested to have a look at
Fairies ~ this was fun 😀 ~ and there’s a link to download THE cutest little tooth Fairy Unit Study 🙂
for additional thematic printables, lesson plans, free PDF ebooks and activities, most notably some really lovely Full Collectors’ items digitally reconstructed and preserved Classic Books.
On 21 October “Apple Day” is celebrated in the USA. I have put together an interesting collection of “Apple Activities” including a Classic eBook, Apple Pie by Kate Greenway, specially for little people – another must for your Classic Collection.
Two highly recommended books can be downloaded on the homeschooling pages.  The one is Charlotte Mason’s “Homeschool” – a Homeschool Classic, and the other is “Becoming a Homeschool Professor”.  Both are “must-have’s” in your homeschooling library.
I have been busy working on “Learning Disabilities” pages since this is also recognised and highlighted in October.  The sections I have thus far researched are ADHD, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.  These will hopefully be up by the next update along with free ebooks for parents/educators, and activities specifically designed for learners with these challenges.
There have been a number of additions to our “Family Resources” section, and you are invited to browse the pages and download any or all of the resources you feel may benefit you.
That’s it for this update.
I do hope that you will find something of interest to you and your children.  Just a reminder that there are printables and ebooks in almost every single section of the website, with thousands of pages I cannot get through them all here so rather focus on new updates, while incorporating other activities.
As always I welcome input, comments and constructive criticism.  I appreciate all feedback and do try to respond to everyone who mails me. I love hearing from you – I really especially love to hear about what you would like to see up on the site, so you are very welcome to send in your suggestions.
Have a safe and blessed week
Until next time
Warm Wishes
