Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #277: October 10, 2019

Welcome back to... 


I know, I know, Throwback Thursday seems to be all about sharing pictures from the past, great memories that mean something to you, that you would like to share with others. At least that is how it appears to me. Throwback Thursday wasn't something I was participating in, and then I came up with an idea.

I thought it would be great fun and a help to my blog to share old content, but not just any old content. Each week I will share an old blog post from a previous year, any year, BUT it has to be from the current week (for example, something I've posted around October 10th, from any previous year)  I will go in, edit the post if needed, add a pinnable image if I don't already have one, and share it on Facebook.

Would you like to join in? You do not need to edit your past post in any way, you don't need to create a pinnable image, though it couldn't hurt, in fact it will help your blog traffic to add quality pinnable images to your posts.

Just go into your archives, choose a favorite post from this current week from any previous year, and link it up below. (If you don't have anything from this current week, it is still okay to link up with a post from a previous year around this time. And if you haven't been blogging for a full year, feel free to share any earlier post.)


Please make sure to share from the past as instructed above.  The spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past. Please follow the guidelines. I would hate to have to delete your link.
Thank you

I will be pinning posts to my appropriate Pinterest boards and will be randomly selecting a Featured Throwback Thursday post to share next week. Just a note, I will be sharing a picture from your post if you are selected as the featured post, but I will link back to your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. By linking up you are giving me permission to use your picture in the post. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday post
(This year I am going to focus on looking back at past reviews):

Wordless Wednesday: October 9, 2019 (w/linky) - Our Precious Swiftpaw

It's been a free choice month for our photo-a-day challenge and I have been posting lots of pictures of our porch cat (a.k.a stray cat who have found a home on our porch). Isn't Swiftpaw a sweetie?












Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

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 on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.

Littles Learning Link Up: October 8, 2019


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 elementary-age children and the preschoolers I work with at our homeschool co-op (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.

Here's a peek at what we have been up to in our homeschool.

We learned Miles Standish and the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Then we moved on to Roger Williams and the Rhode Island Colony. 

In science we are continuing our reading about different animals in God's creation. We have been learning about specific vertebrates. We read about marsupials. And now we are learning about birds. I love that our book explains why dinosaurs could not have evolved into birds. We also learned a bit about Charles Darwin.

And of course the children are still working on their review materials. Harold and Hannah have been using Elephant Learning for their math, while Amelia has been using Smartick. Additionally, Hannah and Harold have been learning Spanish with Excelerate Spanish.

Tabitha has finished two copies of the art piece named "Field of Daisies," trying it out on different kinds of paper. 


Plus, Tabitha and Amelia both worked on "Simplicity."


We are looking forward to co-op starting next week!

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

Two weeks ago I shared my review for the HiGASFY Art History Video Series.

I have no reviews due this week. But next week I will be posting three!  You will find reviews of the two newest books in the Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series from WorthyKids Books, plus Fun Family Chess and Wooden Building Planks from Brain Blox. Later in the month you will find reviews for Smartick math subscription, the Drawing Program from Creating a Masterpiece, Excelerate Spanish, plus a multiplication practice book from Channie's Visual Handwriting & Math Workbooks.
And then in November you will find reviews for new books from Kregel Publications, plus books from Mattie Richardson,  Elephant Learning Math Academy, and LitWits Kits.

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







I'm not sure when I am going to get to that ocean themed round up. Sorry about that. I've been awfully busy with my new venture, being a Pampered Chef consultant.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 4 wonderful posts linked up. As there were no clicks, I will be sharing 2 randomly selected posts.

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 first randomly selected post is:



Gale from Imaginative Homeschool shared Story of the World - Chapter 13 - Amenhotep & King Tut.
This week's second randomly selected post is:


Kristen from A Mom's Quest to Teach shared  Book Club: Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor: The Woman Who Loved Reptiles.

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.

Wordless Wednesday: October 2, 2019 (w/linky) - Field Trip Part 2: The Rockwell Museum

It's been a couple of weeks since we went to the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum. I was supposed to share our time at the Rockwell Museum last week, but I ran out of time. If you missed the pictures from the Corning Museum of Glass, you can find them here.

We decided to purchase the combo ticket that allowed us to also go to the Rockwell Museum. We took the little bus they have that goes from the Corning Museum of Glass to the Rockwell Museum, then back to the parking lot.





They have a scavenger hunt for the children to do, where they have to identify the works of art that are each represented by a small section.





































Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

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 on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.
