Homeschool Fun: Dinosaurs

Jayne works on his sequencing puzzle
 Jayne always loves when we do dinosaurs. This time around we worked with the dinosaur unit from 2 Teaching Mommies. The dinosaurs they used were just adorable. He really loved all the worksheets and activities. He is still a huge fan of the number clip cards but also had a lot of fun doing the number sequencing puzzle and size sorting activities I have decided to add food Friday into our routine. On food Friday we will have a snack or meal that goes with our theme for the week. This week we had dinosaur mashed potatoes. Just use a cookie cutter and fill with potatoes, easy and fun. We even put his lunch on his dinosaur plate. Jayne really loved it and gobbled up his food really quick, a rare occurrence lately. We also sang If You're a Dinosaur and You Know it from The Mailbox's Day by Day Preschool Plans book. Jayne enjoyed being able to stomp around and be noisy. Over all, it was a great week. We will be spending part of today reorganizing the classroom. Jayne is very excited about it. I described what we are going to do and he thinks it will be very fun.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
