    It is HERE! It really and truly is! Flat Stanley is on his way to our first family! That means the “Where in the Secular Homeschool Community is Flat Stanley??” Contest is ON!

    Such a great adventure so far and we have barely started! Our Flat Stanley version was given life by me. He kindly let me snap a quick selfie before leaving Portland, Oregon on his way to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I was sad to see him go, but know it was time for him to stretch his legs.

    From April 1 until June 30, 2019, Flat Stanley along with a copy of his original book will make their way across the United States spending 1 week visiting each lucky family that signed up! During that week, the lucky family gets to take Flat Stanley out on homeschooling adventures. So much fun!

    At some point during the week, we would love if you would snap some pictures and share on your I Instagram page, tagging it with #secularhomeschoolflatstanley2019 . We will share them on our social media sites, so the whole secular homeschool community can follow Flat Stanley on his Spring/Summer adventures! Exciting!

    As for the contest requirements, take a short couple minute video of Flat Stanley on your homeschooling adventure. It can be one adventure or it can be a compilation video of the whole week. That is entirely up to you. Make sure to submit it to our contest link and at the end of the entry period, all submitted videos will be judged. One lucky winner will be picked and win a Flat Stanley Boxed Set.

    At the end of your week with Flat Stanley, pack him and his book up, bid them a fond farewell and ship them back to our main office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This ensures that no addresses are shared outside of our office. Once he returns to Florida, he will be repacked and sent off on his next adventure.

    You can follow the places he has visited on this map! We will be updating it as he adventures around the United States.

    Once all videos are submitted by the end of June, a panel of judges of our choosing will pick a winner. The winner will notified by email. Thank you to all who have entered so far.

    If this adventure sounds like too much fun and you want to get in on it, you STILL can. Check out our original article HERE and sign-up to have Flat Stanley visit you.

    We can’t wait to follow along with Flat Stanley and his adventures with our Secular Homeschool Community! Safe Travels Flat Stanley!

    There are 2 ways to look at math. Either “Math sucks” or “Math is fun”! I myself am a “math sucks” person. I have a Math block (as it was called in the 70’s and 80’s). Basic math is fine. I can add, subtract, multiply, figure out how much paint we need, balance ...

    Earth Day 2019 is here! What is Earth Day? It is an annual event, held every year on April 22 to celebrate awareness for environmental protection. First started in 1970, it has grown to become a worldwide day to honor Earth. Next year it celebrates 50 years.

    How can you celebrate or incorporate Earth Day into your homeschool? Easiest way, research and learn about Earth Day, how and why it started, what it entails and ways you can help. You can also check for Earth Day activities in your area.

    Earth Day is not to be confused with Arbor Day, which is held on April 26th this year. Though you can combine the 2 and create a whole “save the world” week with planet conservation and tree conservation in one! That’s how we do it. The whole week becomes about ways we can help Earth.

    How can you help Earth?

    • Recycle: If you don’t already, start. Even a small step is a step.
    • Create a Compost Bin: You can compost any vegetative matter and create dirt. Go one farther and create a worm bin. You can watch the worms do all the work.
    • Start a garden. Whether you live in a house or an apartment, you can still garden. Container gardening is all the rage.
    • Watch your electricity usage. Take Earth Hour and turn it into a weekly or monthly thing. Get a wattage detector and check where leakage is happening in your home.
    • Check with your power company for an Energy Evaluation of your home. They come and do a free or low-cost check of your home’s energy usage. They check things like air leaks, door and window seals, power usage, etc.
    • Look for park or beach clean-ups in your area. Great way to help, by keeping these areas clean, we help the animals as well as the environment.
