Littles Learning Link Up: June 7, 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 focusing on pioneer days with My Father's World Adventures and farm animals with My Father's World Kindergarten.

Today I wanted to focus on some of the things Harold has been up to.

I am loving his drawings of people and his cutting skills.

His writing is coming along nicely too. He is still following along with MFW Kindergarten. However, I don't have the student sheets for him, so I print out worksheets for him from superteacherworksheets.com (a site we reviewed last year).

And he is learning to read!!!

But I think the thing that impressed me the most this past week was his first written sentence. At first I thought he was being a little stinker and calling himself an "It" on his paper.

Then I realized he was writing a sentence:

He wrote "it is u cat"
He sounded it out all by himself and wrote the letters without any help. I'm not sure if the word "is" is spelled "iz" or "is" but I am impressed either way.

Now onto our review schedule:

I recently posted the reviews for Science Shepherd, Sunya Publishing, Essential Skills Advantage, and the Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner. The review for The Glass Castle by Trisha White Priebe and Jerry B. Jenkins will be going live this week. Reviews for Forbrain, Veritas Press, and LearnBop will be going live later on in June. And then in July I will be posting reviews for Laurelwood Books, ArtAchieve, ABeCeDarian, and Heirloom Audio Production's newest release Beric the Briton.

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

A few somethings I would like to share with you:

As Father's Day is right around the corner, I invite you to check out my Round Up from last year: Father's Day Gift and Card Round Up

Don't forget to check out this month's round up: April Showers Brought May Flowers.

And finally, don't miss this month's Guest Post: Pond Circle Story Time for Preschoolers

I know I plan to do this activity when we reach our Rock unit next year.

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:

  1. I loved seeing Harold's drawing and writing skills develop like that! And he cracked me up with his "it" name!
