Around here: October

Woo-hoo, Wednesdays are my favorite days!! We've made it through the mad rush that is the beginning of the week and now we are slowly descending toward the weekend.

Here is a quick look into our family's life:
* researching Abigail Adams
* enjoying cooler weather
* reacting to seasonal allergies
* reading about William Hoy

* playing with friends
* visiting the neighborhood park
* purging and cleaning out closets
* clicking on ABCs with this FREE game:
ABC Alphabet Phonics - Preschool Kids Game Free Lite

practicing skip-counting
purging and cleaning out closets
* enjoying "old school" Sesame Street

* making Halloween costumes (Can anyone tell who our five year old is going to be?)
Rachel Coleman costume--in progress

What is YOUR family up to?


  1. We've been doing much of the same things! I'd be interested to hear how you teach skip counting. :)

    1. Our homeschool curriculum has audio CDs with skip-counting songs. Addie's an auditory learner, so that really helps. (http://www.classicalconversationsbooks.com/necy2aucd.html or there's a new $15 app that I believe also has all the music: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/foundations-memory-work-tutorials/id714463714?mt=8&uo=4&at=%3C%3Ctoken%3E%3E)

      We haven't printed these off yet, but another student in Addie's class LOVES them. http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2012/07/skip-counting-mazes.html

      I also have some charts that Addie and I work on coloring in together. I can't find the link online, so I'll e-mail you the pdf.

      So glad you stopped by!
