The Archers recap May 25th – 28th

We’re back friends! It seems apt that I am starting these weekly recaps after a 3 week hiatus from beloved Ambridge. My interest is at an all time high, I’ve missed them all terribly. Maybe not all of them, definitely less Philip than the others. In general I’m not a massive fan of shady Welshmen,Continue reading “The Archers recap May 25th – 28th”

Bird Week Activities – Day 4

Blink and you could have missed it friends. The week is over already. Now for a two day stretch of pajamas, loud arguments over iPad time, and constant snacks to fill the void of having no schedule to tell us what to do. I may write a post about our schedule this weekend. That wouldContinue reading “Bird Week Activities – Day 4”

Telling the time activities – Day 2

Starting today with some boring teacher-y admin. If you’re teaching anyone anything new, they may get it at the moment you teach it. They’ve stored it in their short term memory. However for them to really know it, they have to move that information to their long term memory. This is why you have toContinue reading “Telling the time activities – Day 2”

Telling the time activities – Day 3

Day 3 on telling the time! The weather in Oklahoma has turned a corner, and temperatures are on the rise. We don’t have a huge window before it’s too hot to do anything prolonged outside. So today I made the most of the sunshine and took the boys outside for our academic time. More onContinue reading “Telling the time activities – Day 3”

Bird Week Activities – Day 3

3/4 of the way through our bird week! Welcome to day 3! I’d like to start by saying that although I’m sure every blog post I write is littered with typos, this one will probably have even more, as I’m typing whilst watching Midsomer Murders, which requires most of my attention. Yesterday I promised I’dContinue reading “Bird Week Activities – Day 3”

Telling the time activities – Day 4

Some weeks I’m sad to see the back of. The sun has shone, our activities went off without a hitch, my anxiety was low. Other weeks are a struggle. This was one of those. It’s a shame really, because learning to the time is such a milestone moment for so many kids. I just haveContinue reading “Telling the time activities – Day 4”

So what exactly is the Archers?

Oh hi there! I see you’ve ended up here, wondering what the Archers is. I’m so glad you asked, because it is straight up magic. Before we delve into the intricacies of the personal lives of all the characters, let me cover the absolute basics. The Archers is a radio drama, it is on 6Continue reading “So what exactly is the Archers?”

Pirate Week Activities – Day 2

Honestly, I think day two of any theme is the best day. The kids are into it because they’ve already done a day of it, so sort of have have a clue, it’s not the end of the week, so no one is over it yet. So here we are, day 2 of pirates. EnthusiasmContinue reading “Pirate Week Activities – Day 2”

Bird Week Activities – Day 2

Refreshed and relaxed from taking yesterday off to do absolutely nothing, here we are, Wednesday. Let’s be having you. When I say we did nothing yesterday, I truly mean it. No one got dressed. No one saw a hairbrush. We watched an amount of Scooby Doo that could have had us confused for sophomore stoners.Continue reading “Bird Week Activities – Day 2”

Pirate Week Activities – Day 1

New week who dis?! Whats the opposite of starting with a bang? Slowly crawling to the start line?! We may be starting our week here, but it’s not Monday. It’s Tuesday. So right off the bat this is going to be another week where there are four days of activities instead of 5. I amContinue reading “Pirate Week Activities – Day 1”
