I love frozen yogurt but my son and I actually have a favorite place to eat frozen yogurt! We have tried quite a few over the past couple of years and are all-time favorite is Yogurtland! So, I was quite excited to go and try their Sweet Treat Candy Crush flavors this Summer!

I have to admit my favorite this Summer was the Maple Donut! Although, the current new flavors are pretty good too! My son’s favorite so far has been the Candy Clouds. But, we’re looking forward to Butterscotch and Minty Meadow! You simply can not find such unique flavors at any other type of frozen yogurt place and the toppings are always the best! So many options and they are always so fresh! I have to give a shout out to San Pedro Yogurtland  because they are the one we visited and they are always so super friendly!

Time for Back-to-School! A Great idea, discounts and a really cool product for those picky eaters!

It’s that time of year again! As a homeschooler, I still have a few more weeks before we start school. I am enjoying the last days of summer. Homeschooling can be a challenge at times. This first suggestion is one that can make it easier for homeschool parents. It is also great for all educators!

Education.com has over 1,000 new teacher-created lesson plans available for educators. As teachers start to prepare for the new school year, many will spend an average of $500 out-of-pocket. With a one-year subscription to Education.com Pro teachers have unlimited access to thousands of lesson plans, classroom resources, educational games, and instructional materials for less than $75.

 

The lesson plans are made for educators of preschool through fifth grade students, in subjects including math, science, reading, social studies, and more. Every lesson plan is made by an experienced teacher, and provides an outline, estimated time frame, learning objectives, list of materials, preparation description, worksheets, supplemental games, ideas for differentiation, and key terms.
