Littles Learning Link Up: June 27, 2017

 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 preschoolers and/or 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 have been enjoying a break. Well, the children have. I had two longish reviews to write last week, plus my portfolios to get together to send to my evaluator. Now all I have to do is get my paperwork up to the school district and we are good to go. Our second year of being "official" homeschoolers is done, and we get to start our next year. Though we take a break from official school days, we will still be busy. 

Thankfully our review products are lots of fun and hands-on for the most part. Amelia will be learning Greek, though all the children will be listening in. I am using the R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook from The Crafty Classroom for Harold, and will be using it somewhat for Hannah as well (working on rhyming and such). We have a fun Memory Deck to play card games with to exercise our brains. Plus we will be getting artsy with the products from ACTIVA. We will soon be receiving English on a Roll, which will be a fun, hands-on way to work on grammar.

We will have a summer school session at the end of July and into August, then take another break before starting school in September, like we did last year. I have to schedule this around summer reading programs, camp, and VBS. My plan for the 2 or 3 week summer session is to spend some time doing all the hands-on science observations from the different units that we didn't get to through the school year. And I'm still hoping to fit in a meal from Russia. We are supposed to be finishing up ECC with our lessons on Australia; however, I may hold this off for the first two weeks of the school year. I haven't quite gotten my plans finalized for summer school yet, as I have been busy.

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

Last week I posted my review for The Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series.
This week I will be posting my review for Lightning Literature Grade 3 from Hewitt Homeschooling. July will bring reviews of the Trust Fund movie from Mapelle Films, Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit from ACTIVA Products, the R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook from The Crafty Classroom, and English on a Roll.
In August I will share my review of Hey Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! from Greek 'n' Stuff.

Some things I would like to share with you:

Here are some fun Patriotic ideas:

Are you looking for ways to keep your children busy this summer? Check out my Summer of Fun Round Up:

I will soon be posting my Under the Sea Fishy Fun Literature and Craft Round Up. If you have any posts that you would like included in this round up, please leave me a comment or contact me using the contact info on my About Me page. I am looking for any "Favorite Fish/Under the Sea Books" compilation list posts or crafts/activities/snacks that go with a specific Fish/Under the Sea book, or a post that focuses on just one Fish/Under the Sea Book. Just so long as there is a book involved please.

Now onto:
