Updates to donnayoung.org, February 18, 2009

 

The following are the updates to donnayoung.org from January 2009 to today, February 18, 2009.

Perpetua Planner

http://donnayoung.org/household/fullsize/perpetua.htm
In Household I have added the Perpetua Planner. Perpetua planner is a small household planner set that uses the perpetua font. The planner has PDF files for phone numbers, 18-month calendars, an undated block planner, and birthdays and anniversaries. I also added two new DOC files - a phone register file and a journal file.

Papyrus Planner

http://donnayoung.org/forms/planners/papyrus.htm
In Homeschool Forms I have added the Papyrus Planner. Papyrus planner has both homeschooling and household forms. The planner uses the papyrus font.

Bug Movie

http://donnayoung.org/science/bug_movie.htm
The bug movies are online again. The movies are short and made from compiled images. One shows bugs hatching from their eggs and the other movie shows the first instar stage. The movies will remain online until the last of April.

Writing Strands

http://donnayoung.org/english/books/writing-strands.htm
Two days ago I looked through my son's writing book and was moved to ramble a review. I wrote a short bit about the writing curriculum that we used during our first three years of homeschooling, Writing Strands.

Handwriting Fonts

http://donnayoung.org/penmanship/fonts.htm
Several times a year, I am asked font related questions. Today, I decided to post information on six different handwriting fonts. The pages are located in the penmanship section of donnayoung.org and the starting page is linked below. The web pages offer basic information on the fonts and where to get the fonts.

Snowman Planner

http://donnayoung.org/forms/planners/seasonal.htm
The snowman planner has been around for a while, I made it many years ago and it resides on the Site-CD. The planner is only 3 files, 2 weeklies and 1 quarterly. It features a snowman instead of a check box. The planner is now available online in Homeschooler Planner > Sets

Nature Journal

http://donnayoung.org/homeschooling/science/nature-journal.htm
Photographs of one of our half-sized nature journals. Some of the pages tell how to do certain aspects of the journal, such as specimen pages and organizing the pages. Some of the pages do not have anything informative and are there just for demonstration. Most of the files used to make this journal are available and linked if available.

Monthly Calendar

http://donnayoung.org/calendars/vertical-monthly-calendar.htm
Sometimes I listen. This type of calendar was requested. It is a monthly calendar, one month on one page and it is vertical (portrait). If you have the late '05 or newer site-cd, a version of this calendar exists in xls format on the page: [\cd-dyorg\calendars\blank\index.htm] The calendar is in DOC and PDF formats.

 

Happy Homeschooling,
Donna Young
