Littles Learning Link Up: August 6, 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. 

This week or next week is our last week of our summer session. It depends how much work we get done this week. Yesterday was not a great start to the week as we ended up going shopping and the children didn't get much work done. We also have VBS this week and I am teaching. Thankfully there isn't any prep work that I need to worry about as our esteemed leader is getting everything ready in advance and we just have to take our group to our class area and teach. We are learning about The Fruits of the Spirit. So far we have learned about Love, Joy, Peace, and Patience.

We are moving ahead in My Father's World. I think it depends on how much we get done this week, whether or not I will have us take one more week. I'd like to get as much done in the curriculum as possible. We will be learning about Ancient Africa this week.

The children are continuing to work through literature study guides from Memoria Press. Hannah and I are working on Mr. Popper's Penguins. Harold and I finished reading A Bear Called Paddington, but now he needs to take the quizzes that I forgot were in the back of the teacher guide. Amelia has been working on Charlotte's Web. And Tabitha has been working on Farmer Boy. We are learning new vocabulary, working through comprehension questions, and doing enrichment exercises. Harold was supposed to tell a story about a time he went to the beach, which the children have never done. So, he made up a story about what he would do if he did go to the beach. I typed it up for him and printed it out, and he illustrated it.

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

Last week I shared my review of the Home School in the Woods Timeline Collection. This week I will share my reviews for Library & Educational Services and Memoria Press,  Later in the month you will find the review of the study guide for Britfield & the Lost Crown (I just posted my review of the book yesterday). I also plan to share any new insights we learn from our re-read of the book as a family read-aloud.

In September I will be sharing my review of Easy Grammar Plus from Easy Grammar Systems, Online Times Alive from City Creek Press, Inc, and the 200 Essential Math Skills for Second Grade workbook from Reading Eggs.

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

Next week I will be sharing an ocean themed round up. If you have any posts you would like included, please leave a comment or contact me via the contact information on my About Me page.

Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 8 wonderful posts linked up. I will be sharing 2 randomly selected posts as there were no clicks last 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 first randomly selected post is:

This week's second randomly selected post is:

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.
