Littles Learning Link Up: Dissecting Owl Pellets

Littles Learning Link Up is now on Friday!!

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 haven't been doing the greatest job getting back on track with our school times. Tabitha usually gets her history reading in, but I don't always get to it with the other children. They do get math and language arts done as this is done during their computer time. And for November, Language Arts is writing their story for NaNoWriMo. I have also been able to get the younger two to work in the math workbooks, plus Harold has a science workbook. Additionally, Tabitha is reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond, and I am reading, as a family read aloud, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Though both of these are being used with the LitWits Kits we are reviewing, Tabitha was scheduled to be reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond anyway, as it goes with our time period in history, colonial America. 

Something we did make time for was dissecting owl pellets. 

This kit was really neat, I got it off of Amazon.

It came with 6 barn owl pellets, one for each of us, though daddy hasn't dissected his yet.

The children were hesitant at first. Actually, they were completely grossed out at the thought and were refusing to do this. However, once they got started they were quite fascinated, even little Harold.

I mean, it is quite fascinating.

There, a little look at the bones we found.

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

Last week I posted my review of a multiplication practice book from Channie's Visual Handwriting & Math Workbooks.

And this week I shared my review of the new books from Kregel Publications, the Goldtown Beginnings books featuring Jem Coulter. Later in the month I will share reviews of some books from Mattie Richardson,  Elephant Learning Math Academy, and LitWits Kits.

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