Littles Learning Link Up: July 4, 2017

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually 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.

🌟Happy Independence Day🌟

What have we been up to?

We have been enjoying a break. Yes, even me. My paperwork is safely at the school district office, and I don't have to worry about it for another year. 

We have been using our review products of course. We have all been learning the Greek letters, just a few at a time to not overwhelm them. I say them, because I do remember most of my Greek letters as I took Greek in high school, but I don't remember any of the language. I am using the R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook from The Crafty Classroom for Harold, and he is really enjoying it. We received English on a Roll, and I started the lessons with Hannah. We have a fun Memory Deck to play card games with to exercise our brains. Plus we will be getting artsy with the products from ACTIVA. And yesterday, the newest release from Heirloom Audio Productions arrived in our mailbox. We started listening to In the Reign of Terror, which is about the French Revolution.

We will have a summer school session at the end of July and into August, then take another break before starting school in September, like we did last year. I have to schedule this around summer reading programs, camp, and VBS. My plan for the 2 or 3 week summer session is to spend some time doing all the hands-on science observations from the different units that we didn't get to through the school year. And I'm still hoping to fit in a meal from Russia. We will be finishing up ECC with our lessons on Australia. 

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

Last week I posted my review for Lightning Literature Grade 3 from Hewitt Homeschooling.
July will bring reviews of the Trust Fund movie from Mapelle Films, Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit from ACTIVA Products, the R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook from The Crafty Classroom, and English on a Roll.
In August I will share my review of Heirloom Audio Productions' In the Reign of Terror, and Hey Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! from Greek 'n' Stuff.

Some things I would like to share with you:

Here are some fun Patriotic ideas:

I will soon be posting my Under the Sea Fishy Fun Literature and Craft Round Up. If you have any posts that you would like included in this round up, please leave me a comment or contact me using the contact info on my About Me page. I am looking for any "Favorite Fish/Under the Sea Books" compilation list posts or crafts/activities/snacks that go with a specific Fish/Under the Sea book, or a post that focuses on just one Fish/Under the Sea Book. Just so long as there is a book involved please.

Now onto:
