Littles Learning Link Up: September 10, 2019 First Week Back to School

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 started our year by learning about different European explorers who discovered America. We started by talking about Leif Ericsson, then moved into Christopher Columbus and John Cabot before talking about some Spanish explorers: Ponce de Leon, Balboa, and De Soto. These were just brief looks at each of the explorers. We will be working on creating notebook pages and building onto our timeline, plus we have map work.

While reading the one day, I did allow the children to make the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Then we sailed them in the sink. Not near as elaborate as what we did a several years ago during our Adventures in US History, when we took a tub of water out to the yard and had construction paper continents on either side. But, at least it kept them busy while I read and gave them something hands-on to do. We still have to make our World Cake.

In science we are starting with creation, focusing on animals at this point. We have been looking at dinosaurs a bit more in depth for now, and are learning about the classification system. 

And of course the children are still working on their review materials. 

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

Last week I shared my review of the 200 Essential Math Skills for Second Grade workbook from Reading Eggs (which Harold has been using),.

This week I will share my review for Easy Grammar Plus from Easy Grammar Systems (which Tabitha and Amelia have been using). And later this month you will find reviews of Online Times Alive from City Creek Press, Inc (which Amelia and Hannah have been using), plus the HiGASFY Art History Video Series.

And then in October I will be bringing you reviews for Elephant Learning Math Academy, the Drawing Program from Creating a Masterpiece, plus Fun Family Chess and Wooden Building Planks from Brain Blox.

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

Don't miss this year's NOT Back to School Blog Hop posts. 
This year I shared A Peek into Our Homeschool.

Also, I invite you to check out these round ups from the past:

Next week I hope to share an ocean themed round up. Sorry this keeps getting postponed. 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.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there was 1 wonderful post linked up. I will be sharing two 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:

Leah from Simple. Home. Blessings shared Preschool Gathering.

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.
