Welcome to the Memorial Day Edition of the Literacy Musing Mondays Party. This week, I share resources about the holiday including an informational video and links.
I also want to honor the memory of all those who lost their life in service to our country. Thanks also to my wonderful brother who proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force for more than 20 years.

Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!
By Shelly at There’s No Place Like Home
Shelley is one busy mom with 10 kids at home whom she homeschools. The steps she suggests are easy to put into practice. You will want to check this post out for your own ideas on unit planning. I would add that you might want to also consider thinking about the goals for your children’s learning with each book you choose. What do you want them to learn and how can you use the book you select for cross-curriculum studies.
My Favorite Post of the Week:
By Leah at aswewalkalongtheroad.com
I now have a new (classic) book to add to my must read shelf: C.S. Lewis’s Out of the Silent Planet. I never knew that one of my favorite authors wrote a space trilogy. I learned something new reading her post. I really encourage you to head over and check out the rest of her recommendations.
