We’ve been trying a thing around here, or at least I’ve been trying a thing, to better organize our time. Because I’m not a homeschooler. But…I work. I work at home, I have a child in half day preschool (probably next year as well), I have a child getting 4 sessions of private speech and OT each week, I do not have childcare, I do not want to just park my 5-year-old in front of the TV all day.
We took advantage of the crazy heat last week to melt some crayons into cookie cutters to make some fun new rainbow sun crayons. I’ve seen these done everywhere and never tried them, but H thought the colors of the melted wax were pretty neat. She called it “hot lava” and loved the swirls.
I’ve sung the praises of Lane Smith before, and now here are two of his collaborations with Jon Scieszka that are pretty neat. Math Curse is my favorite of the two books in this nonfiction series about school subjects. I wouldn’t be surprised to see more in this series in the future; Science Verse hints at an art class book.
