Littles Learning Link Up: April 5, 2016- Child Created Insect Crafts

 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 continued working on our insect unit for My Father's World Kindergarten. The older girls took a turn last week coming up with a craft for the younger children. I loved these insects Amelia and Hannah made.

These ants are made out of black jelly beans. Which is just fine with me as I can't even stand the smell of someone else eating them. Aren't they cute! 

Now for our latest review products:

Last week I posted my review of Logic of English Foundations A.

The children have continued working with Talking Fingers: Read, Write, and Type. Let's just say, I have a hard time pulling them away from the computer.  I can't wait to write this review later this month. Another review that will be posting mid-April 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. This review won't be posting until May.  Just today we started our review of the Institute for Excellence in Writing's new Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization. This review, along with Memoria Press's Greek Myths Guides will also be posting in mid-May.

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.

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:

  3. Thanks so much for featuring my ABC photo hunt! I loved those ants, too, but we never have jelly beans around here, so I was thinking we could make them out of black olives! Have a great week!
