Littles Learning Link Up: April 19, 2016

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child(ren).

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

What have we been up to?

We have been continuing to try to play catch up. This week we finally moved on to a new "week" in My Father's World Adventures. The girls have been quite busy with review products of course, so it isn't like they aren't doing anything. As for our Kindergarten curriculum, we are slowly finishing up our insect unit. Yesterday all the children went outside to find a rock to make a ladybug. I really need to start doing more crafts again. Just not sure when to fit them it.

Here is Harold working on his ladybug rock, while Hannah works on her computer time in the background.

As for our latest review products:

I just posted my review of Talking Fingers from Read, Write & Type. Definitely a favorite this year. I am going to have to look into their other program, Wordy Qwerty. Another review that will be posting this week is for A+ Interactive Math. We have reviewed their programs in the past. They recently came out with Math Mini Courses, and the older girls are each working on one. Additionally, we are enjoying learning about Mozart with Zeezok Publishing, Poetry Memorization with the Institute for Excellence in Writing and Greek Myths with Memoria Press. These reviews won't be posting until May. We also just started with the website, Essential Skills Advantage.

As you might be able tell, our review products are taking up a lot of our schooling time. Which could explain how we have fallen behind in our core curriculum. Fortunately, the children are learning lots of great subjects, and we are so thankful for these great review products.

Something I would like to share with you:

Don't forget to check out this month's round up: Creepy, Crawly, Buggy Round Up.

I am lining up my guest posts for the new year. If you would be interested writing a guest post for Littles Learning Link Up one of these months, please leave a comment or contact me via my contact info on my About Me page. I will need to have your email address so I can contact you. I am looking for posts that have to do with young children: crafts, activities, foods/snacks, tips, or other ideas. I am open to suggestions.

Now onto:

Join the Party!

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your young children? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on one of my relevant boards, and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.

Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our school time. By linking up you are giving me permission to use a picture from your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your child, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Monday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.
