Even and Odd – a printable for you

I am enjoying creating these 🙂 Today we covered Even and Odd numbers. Look at that concentration! All while humming and making noises, hence the mouth.

As promised, here it is:

I hope you can use it 🙂

Bean plant observation – Hurray for science

We are growing not one, not 2 but 3 bean plants! It has been quite the excitement at our house, with Little J carefully measuring it every morning and reciting to me all he knows about plants every chance he gets.

Image

I looked all over for a printable observation journal but couldn’t find one like I had imagined, so I made my own (feel free to save and print if you are also thinking about growing a bean plant 🙂 Just don’t laugh at my free hand bean).

Image

Check out that focus, making sure it looks exactly like it 🙂 If I was to redo this I would add some space for measurement.

Little Miss E has been keeping busy with gluing. she loves anything sticky 🙂

Super easy to make fish activity for her. I cut fish out of construction paper, drew a sea environment on white paper and drew the fish the same color as the ones I had previously cut. She loved matching them.

Image

I also made a printable for Little J to label. He loved it but got done so fast that he decided to color it (he never ever colors). You are welcome to it also 🙂

In other news our Little Miss E is growing up too fast! She went from never having used the potty to potty trained in about a week. Such a big girl!

Homeschooling – Doctor who style

As I have mentioned before, Little J’s current obsession is the Doctor. We talk about the Doctor all day and he enjoys re enacting scenes from the show. As a homeschooling mother to a child like him I do my best to engage him in any way I can, especially with subjects he doesn’t enjoy. So I thought to myself ‘What better way to do so than to use the one thing he can’t stop thinking about to help him with one of things he dislikes the most?’ I  looked online but struggled to find anything so I worked on my own ideas. Sentence makers.

I wrote down characters, items and places from the show and had him cut them out and glue them in the right spot. Little J is not a fan of cutting, it is hard for him to cut straight lines and he can get frustrated, but he focused and cut them out as carefully as he could.

He kept saying ‘This is the coolest work I have ever done’.

After he was done gluing I gave him another task. To make a sentence using some of the words he had preciously cut out. Making up sentences has been a struggle, but this time he was all over it and even used one word from each category.

Image

That is pride, right there 🙂 He even colored my little Dalek!

Image

And why not some math problems too while we are at it?

In the end Little J said this was his favorite ‘school’ day ever! Huge success!

Once again, thank you Doctor!
