September Homeschool Day

This month’s theme is Back to School and Harvest. Please choose one activity for each time slot offered.


10:00 am - 10:50 am

Session 1: One-Room Schoolhouse Lessons: Stitch your own sampler

In the 1800s, stitching a sampler was a popular way for students to test both their sewing skills and knowledge of the alphabet. The finished sampler was proudly hung in the home and admired by visitors. Participants in this session will learn how to make a cross stitch and make their own mini sampler.

Location: Historic One Room Schoolhouse on our campus


Session 2: DIY Bookmarks

Reading, writing, and arithmetic (the 3 R’s) were the primary subjects taught in the 1800s. In preparation for all of the reading you will be doing this year, join us to make your own embroidered bookmark. Participants will learn basic embroidery and stitch either their name or a design of their choosing on their bookmark.  

Location: Historic One Room Schoolhouse on our campus

11:00 am - 11:50 am 

Session 1 : Weave a harvest basket 

Pioneers would have used baskets to carry their harvests from the field to the house. Start making your own harvest basket to take home.


Session 2 : Welcome Fall

  1. a) Harvest Party by Jennifer O’Connell

Join us as we read “Harvest Party” by Jennifer O’Connell and then make your own life-sized scarecrow to take home and protect your harvest!

12:00 pm - 12:50 pm – Celebrating Johnny Appleseed Day (September 26th)

Both sessions will begin together with a story about Johnny Appleseed before breaking out into the two different groups.


Session 1: All About Apples

After learning a bit about Johnny Appleseed, let’s do some sequencing and learn how an apple evolves from a tiny seed. Participants will make their own Johnny Appleseed to hold the sequencing cards.


Session 2: Apple Harvest

What can you make with apples? Cider! Apple cider was one of the most popular (if not the most popular) drinks in colonial times. Let’s take a visit to our farmstead’s cider press and learn how apple cider was made in the 1800s.

Location: This session is outdoors, please dress for the weather
