Daily Spirit Themes

Dress up. Have fun. And celebrate being homeschoolers!

Animal Day

Choose an animal you love and dress up as it. You can be in a full out costume, a printed t-shirt, a Papier-mâché mask, or an outfit fully inspired by that animal. Bonus activity idea: Make a presentation on your animal of choice based on your homeschool studies. Especially if it helps raise awareness about that animal.  Check out today’s Parrot Mask DIY!

Dapper Day

Dress dashing and chic for Dapper Day. It can be silly or sophisticated. Now that you’re all dressed up, have a tea party, or go on a field trip. Today is all about classic fun in a modern twist of yesteryears. Bonus activity idea: Does your outfit fit a specific fashion time period? Study the history and culture of people who wore outfits like yours in their daily lives. Check out today’s A Dapper Adorable Day post.

Hero Day

“I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people.” – Maya Angelo

From everyday heroes to superheroes from comic books, we all have someone we look up to that inspires us to do good in the world. Today, dress up as one of your favorite heroes. Bonus activity idea: share what you love most about your hero and make a poster about their awesomeness. Check out today’s Hero Comic Book Project!

Disney Day

Disney Day pretty much speaks for itself 😉 Emmett and I love homeschooling Disney-style. Wear your Disney clothes, make Disney crafts, watch Disney movies, host a Disney karaoke day with your co-op group. Bonus activity idea: plan a Disney Field Trip with your homeschool co-op group! Take All the photos to commemorate the day and most of all have a blast!

Spirit Day

Finish this spirit week with your own homeschool’s apparel. Wear your school colors, order t-shirts with your homeschool name or make your own at home! Today it’s all about your family’s homeschool life. Bonus activity idea: Go out to the movies with your family, or some other fun place, and show off your fun homeschool spirit apparel.

    • For several years, I’ve been designing logos and brand materials on the side. My official site launch for @logodentity will be July 1st, but I'm already half booked through September! Stop by and signup to my newsletter for early access prices!
    • What curriculum do you use for English lessons in your homeschool?
For most of our Language Arts lessons, we use Spelling You See, Daily 6 Trait Writing, Editor in Chief, Italic Handwriting, and Language Smarts from Timberdoodle.
    • Something we didn’t expect to see at Comic Con was video games.
Naturally, Emmett was excited to discover they did. He got to play a Mario game on the Super Nintendo.
CRRL-Con was a lot of fun. We look forward to going again next year.
    • What Spring surprises have you found this month?
This is our first spring in this home and we’ve found some beautifully vibrant flowers in the yard. This purple, is one of my favorite colors.
    • What’s on your bookshelf?
Our bookshelf is an assortment of homeschool curriculum, nature magazines, wildlife resource books, fiction novels, arts and crafts, as well as some games. We also have a spot exclusively for library books. This makes it easy to keep track of returns. Soon we’ll be recycling the shelf and adding some built-in shelving to cover the whole wall, floor to ceiling. Because you can never have enough shelf space for books 😉
    • Yesterday Emmett had a blast at his first Comic Convention. It was also our first visit to the Howell branch of the library. This circle wall seat was awesome and it happened to match Emmett’s cosplay 😁
    • Hi! I’m Ashley (mom + educator) and this is Emmett (son + student). We are year-round homeschoolers that love wildlife, traveling, learning new skills, and fandom activities.
Emmett loves inventing things that spin, everything related to aerospace, Pokémon, Beyblades, and Hot Wheels. When he grows up he wants to be an inventor. His favorite subject is science, especially when he does lessons that incorporate Bill Nye the Science Guy. .
I’m a mom, home educator, graphic designer, and drafter. I love observing flora, fauna, fungi, land, and sea. My favorite part of homeschooling is traveling and learning with my son. .
Our homeschool style is eclectic. We love exploring and project based homeschooling best. Our local secular homeschool group is amazing! Emmett and I love to meetup for fun and learning. .
    • What animals did you see in nature today?
We saw lots of worms! Another fascinating creature we’ve seen thanks to a lot of rain and spring weather.
