Littles Learning Link Up: June 28, 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?

Honestly, nothing much. June 17th was our last day of school until summer school next month. We have been having relaxing days where the children play inside and outside. They have a pack of card games that was in a basket that was won on Community Days. So, they have been having fun playing such games as Slap Jack and Old Maid. We have been reading books, though not as much as I would like.  We are still working on some review products of course. And the girls are gearing up to go to camp. It is all they can think about, though it is still a few weeks away.

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

I posted the review for The Glass Castle a few weeks ago, and the one for Forbrain posted a couple of weeks ago. The review for LearnBop posted last week. This week I will be posting the review for Veritas Press. And then in July, I will be posting reviews for Laurelwood Books, ArtAchieve, ABeCeDarian, and Heirloom Audio Production's newest release Beric the Briton. We are also going to be working on math with CTCMath; that review will post in August.

Yes, we are keeping busy this summer, even though we are not having what we call "school days" where we have Bible time, and Story Time and Calendar time.

A few somethings I would like to share with you:

It is officially summer and July is right around the corner, so I would like to invite you to check out a few of my round ups.

A couple of years ago I posted this Patriotic Ideas Round Up:

If you are looking for fun ideas to keep your kids busy this summer, you might want to peruse my Summer of Fun Round Up.

Of course, summer is a time to think about the beach, so I also have a round up for ideas for having fun at the beach, or having beach fun at home. It's the Beach Fun Round Up.

And finally, don't miss this month's Guest Post: Early Elementary Lighthouse Unit Study.

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:
