Littles Learning Link Up: September 5, 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.

What have we been up to?

Last week was our last week of summer vacation. I had planned on spending the week on preparing for school, but we found ourselves out and about, visiting family. Last Wednesday I shared our visit to see the littlest granddaughters in my Wordless Wednesday post. Then, on Wednesday, we went to see my mom down in Williamsport, PA. She took us out for lunch, then took us on the Hiawatha (which I hadn't done since my older kids were little). We then stopped by her house for dessert before heading home. Here are a few pictures from that trip. (I had planned on sharing them in this week's Wordless Wednesday post, but I forgot I was going to have first day of school photos to share.)

So, this short little trip down the Susquehanna river should count toward PA history for our homeschooling, right?

And we also went to a Bills game. It was the last preseason game. This coming Sunday will be the home opener.

We have been continuing our geography studies with Let's Go Geography. Last week we focused on Greenland. 

This week we will move to South America and learn about Ecuador. 

We also received more packages from different embassies. 


Norway and Russia

Can't wait to see what country we hear from next.

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

A couple of weeks ago I posted my review of The Everyday Family Chore System from Everyday Homemaking. Next week I will be posting reviews of the Charlotte's Web E-Guide from Progeny Pres and four books by Carole P. Roman. Later in the month I will share reviews for a juvenile chapter book from Barbour Publishing called Imagine. . . The Great Flood by Matt Koceich, Let's Go Geography, Captain Bayley's Heir from Heirloom Audio Productions, and a couple of books from Worthy Publishing. We also have a cursive workbook that Hannah will be working on. That review will post in October, as will a review of Super Teacher Worksheets (which we did review a couple of years ago. You can find that review here).

Some things I would like to share with you:

Back to School time is here, plus fall is right around the corner (though it feel like fall already). Seems like the perfect time to share my Apple Fun Round Up.

And here is my

I recently started a new weekly feature called Fun Fiction Friday, where I share the books the older girls and I are reading, sharing their thoughts on the books, and possibly even a review of a Juvenile book I am reading. 

A few weeks ago I started Picture Book Saturday (though it posted on Monday)These posts feature the picture books we read during the week, with the children each sharing which one was their favorite. I shared the books we had read about Australia and Coral Reefs.

Hoping to make both of these consistent, weekly features here on Tots and Me...Growing Up Together. I didn't have a chance to post last weekend, as I was getting ready for school starting this week.

I will be posting  a new Apple Fun Literature and Craft Round Up within the next couple of weeks. If you have any posts that focus on apple books (whether it is a book compilation post or a craft based off a book about apples) I would love to include them in my round up. Please just leave me a comment or contact me via my contact info on my About Me page.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 13 wonderful posts linked up. I will be picking one randomly selected post to share. There were no clicks last week, so there will be no "top clicked on post" 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 randomly selected post is:

Katelynne from The Disguised Supermom shared Curriculum Choices for First Grade

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. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your child, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Monday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button. Just link it to my Littles Learning Link Up permalink please.
