Littles Learning Link Up: August 7, 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).
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 didn't do much last week with Tabitha away at camp. The other three children did their "routine" time which meant doing some math, exercise, manipulative work, and reading. After finishing up my reviews for the Ancient Greece Timeline from Home School in the Woods, and the Learning About Science from WriteBonnieRose, we set those subjects aside to focus on our current review products. Unfortunately we haven't gotten a lot done to finish up our last "week" of My Father's World Creation to the Greeks. So, this week or next week will be our last week of summer session, depending upon what work we get finished this week. 

Here's a little peek at what we have been working on.

With the Lit. Study for Paddington from Branch Out World we have worked on map and flag work for Peru and England. Plus we have looked at the time period of the 1950's as that is when Michael Bond found the stuffed bear he based the books after.  

We are also working on Grammar with Grammar Planet:

Plus we just started working on Latin with PictaDicta from Roman Roads Media.

One summer reading program has come to an end, and we will be having the ending party for the other tomorrow. 

Last week the children learned a bit about the habitat of local beavers, including the other animals that live there. Plus they got to see a fly being made.

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

Last week I shared my reviews for Learn About Science from WriteBonnieRose, and the Ancient Greece Timeline from Home School in the Woods. This month I will be sharing my reviews for the products I mentioned above: the Paddington Lit Study from Branch Out World and GrammarPlanet. And next month I will share my review of PictaDicta from Roman Roads Media
Here are some things I would like to share with you:

Back to School is right around the corner (and some have already started back up). Here is my Back to School Round Up

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.
