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”

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”

Pirate week Activities – Day 4

I suppose it’s lucky really that time seems to be going so quickly. I know we shouldn’t wish our lives away, but every day that passes is hopefully one less that we all have to be at home in this strange social distancing situation. How are you all coping out there? We have survived ourContinue reading “Pirate week Activities – Day 4”

Shark Week Activities – Day 4

And so sadly another week comes to an end. Sharks really was everything we could have hoped for from a learning theme. We already had a ton of books about them, Youtube gave me multiple options for informational videos that made the kids giggle, and gave me time to make a coffee, brush my hair,Continue reading “Shark Week Activities – Day 4”

And now for something completely different! A few weeks ago, when this whole pandemic/lockdown pitch became a real long term possibility, I got online and grabbed a whole ton of links to resources I thought I may eventually want to try out. Today we attempted one of them: making and racing paper worms. What makesContinue reading “Racing Paper Worms”

Shark Week Activities – Day 3

I’m going to be honest, I originally planned to do sharks every day this week, Monday – Friday. However yesterday I woke up with a banging headache, and a bit of an attitude problem, so I completely and utterly avoided any school work with the kids at all. Here’s the good news, everyone survived! TheseContinue reading “Shark Week Activities – Day 3”

Shark Week Activities – Day 2

Well pals, yesterday was a blast. We learned a ton of very obscure, most likely unimportant, shark facts, and highly enjoyed making our moveable sharks. They’ve been played with repeatedly, and Im proud to announce the google-y eyes have all held up. Thanks a bunch Elmer’s glue. I was skeptical. I just wanted to addContinue reading “Shark Week Activities – Day 2”

Shark Week Activities – Day 1

This week our focus for school work is everything “shark”. The boys are heavily into sharks and megladons at the moment, so I promised them a week of jolly jaws. Luckily it’s a very popular theme, and I found a million resources online, unlike that time last month when my 5 year old asked forContinue reading “Shark Week Activities – Day 1”
