Littles Learning Link Up: April 24, 2018

 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 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 or shared as a part of a Littles Learning Link Up Round 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?

In our Bible reading we have been reading from 1 Kings. We have moved on passed King David and King Solomon and have been learning about the kingdom of Israel dividing. These last few lessons have been focused on the prophet Elijah. In world history we just started learning about Ancient India. 

We are slowly making our way through The Children's Homer. We did finally finish the third book of the Kane Chronicles, and have started the final book, The Serpent's Shadow.  Let me tell you, there are definitely some funny parts in this book. I had trouble reading yesterday through the laughter. During our bedtime storytime we are reading Percy Jackson's Sea of Monsters. So, some ancient Greece and ancient Egypt right there. 

I have been focusing on grammar and science for the older girls using HelpTeaching.com. Plus the science experiment Amelia is working on where she is observing what solution works better to keep cut flowers looking good longer. 

Our new language arts lessons are coming from Home School Navigator. Right now we are focusing on fairy tales and learning such things as writing paragraphs. Of course, they are getting practice writing "letters" while using Kids Email.

Let's take a look at that review schedule real quick:

Since the last time I posted our review schedule, I have posted three reviews. Two weeks ago I shared my review of Traditional Spelling II from Memoria Press and the movie titled Princess Cut from Watchman Pictures. Last week my review for HelpTeaching.com posted. This week I will be sharing our thoughts on the Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Story Bible app.

Next week I will be sharing about some books from Weigl Publishers, along with the multimedia content we have been granted access to. Plus we are also reviewing Kids EmailHome School Navigator, and a children's alphabet book titled T is for Tree from Reformed Free Publishing Association. All of these reviews will be posting in May.

Here are some things I would like to share with you:

We are so glad it is finally starting to feel like spring around here. Are you looking for some springy crafts or activities to do with your children. I invite you to check out these past round ups.

Now onto:

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.

  1. It's always so weird for me to see "finally feels like spring" when we're suddenly thrust back into "can't go outside or we'll melt" season here. Glad you get to enjoy nice weather and thanks for the feature!


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I love to read your comments, so please leave me one if you have the time.
