Littles Learning Link Up: May 30, 2017

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning 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?

As I mentioned last week, I have been recuperating from surgery, so there was no official school last week, just some work with some review items. Tabitha is doing really well learning Latin with Latina Christiana, she's putting me to shame actually. Harold and Hannah have been the main learners of Spanish with our Whistlefritz curriculum. They have recently been learning colors, numbers, counting and even worked on graphing.

Here's Harold painting one of the balloons for Fritzy's birthday party. Learning the colors and the word for balloons in Spanish.

Here are Hannah and Harold working on colors and getting ready to sort and count, in Spanish of course.

Amelia and Tabitha will join in occasionally.

Amelia has been focusing on literature and grammar with Lightning Literature from Hewitt Homeschooling. We started a bit out of order, as we were finishing up Japan, so I had her read The Big Wave, which isn't supposed to be read until week 16. Now we are at the beginning of the book and she is reading Sarah Plain and Tall. Here she is learning to diagram sentences.

We are back in the swing of things this week, and will be finishing up China before moving on to Russia. That will finish up our school year actually, and we will take a break. Then I have plans to finish up My Father's World ECC (Exploring Countries and Cultures) during our summer school time. I am quite excited that we will be starting in the fall on schedule with Creation to the Greeks.

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my review of Only Passionate Curiosity's online course called Homeschool Rescue. Last week, my review for Thin Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. went live. I recently finished reading  the Christian Heroes book about David Livingstone from YWAM Publishing.  I can't wait to share my review with you. It will be posting within the next couple of days. Later this week my review of MarshMedia will go live. Also in June I will be posting the reviews for: Memoria Press Latina Christiana, which I am using with Tabitha, K5 Learning, WhistleFritz, Hewitt Homeschooling, and the Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series.

Some thing I would like to share with you:

Father's Day is next month. If you are looking for ideas for gifts or cards, I would love for you to check out my Father's Day Gift and Card Round Up.

Two weeks ago I shared the Colors and Color Mixing Fun Literature and Craft Round Up which featured some of my favorite books about colors and color mixing, along with our Camouflaged Chameleons. You will also find a collection of great links to other blogs with fun color/color mixing ideas that go with different books.

And here are some of my past Round Ups with lots of fun crafts and activities that are appropriate for springtime.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 13 wonderful posts linked up. As there were no clicks I will be sharing two randomly selected posts this week. 

Please, don't forget to stop by other posts that are linked up. See what catches your eye, stop by, pin the post to a relevant board, and perhaps leave a comment to let the author of the blog know you have been by for a visit. I know I appreciate others commenting and letting me know they have read my posts, so I am sure others do too.

This week's 1st randomly selected post is:

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.

  1. Hmmm, no clicks last week? I must have been the first one then and forgotten to go back -- I'll make sure to leave this window open today so I can check out some of the other posts!
