Littles Learning Link Up: Back to Homeschool Blog Hop Day 2- Back to School Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (at the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children.
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

Last month I posted that it was officially summer, and this month it is already time to be thinking about back to school. It just doesn't seem possible. I realize not everyone starts back to school at the same time, which is true for homeschool and public school alike. However, the summer is quickly sneaking away from us, so I thought it would be a good time to share some great back to school ideas. Conveniently, I am participating in the five day Back to Homeschool Blog Hop with the Schoolhouse Review Crew, and this round up just happens to fit the theme wonderfully. So, I invite you to pull up a chair and take a look at these great ideas I have pulled together for you.

Here are some great free printables. This collection contains printables suitable for the first day of school, plus great printables that can be used throughout the school year. 

1-  A School Days Treasury from The Canadian Homeschooler
2-  Back to School Coloring Pages from Embark on the Journey
6-  A Time Block Schedule from Path Through the Narrow Gate
7-  First Day of School Signs from Taking Care of Monkey Business
8-  End of Summer Journal from The Resourceful Mama
9-  Back to School Handwriting Paper from Superheroes and Teacups
10- Calendar Printables with Stickers and Numbers from Happy & Blessed Home

Additionally, I found some great tips to help you get your year off to a great start and keep it going strong. 

11- Creating Learning Spaces at Home from Adventures in Wunderland
12- Best Ways to Organize School Work from The Typical Mom
13- 10 Ways to Help a New Homeschool Mom from STEAM Powered Family
