  • Today’s arts/crafts project is making EARTH signs.
    Here is how you make them:
    First you start out with a piece of construction paper or cardstock (any color you want to use will do, i just happened to have blue paper on hand).
    Using glue write out the letters EARTH.

Then take whatever you have found around your yard (grass, flowers, dirt, sticks, etc.) and attach it to the glue.

And something like this should be your outcome…

we-love-earth-week

Here’s what we have been up today:

  • Our snack for today was inspired from this pinterest post, however mom fail, i forgot to buy pretzel sticks, so my kids really had no idea what this was supposed to be…

Oh well, they all still ate it. I added in the banana slice to make it look like the sun.

  • I download that printable yesterday from Teachers Pay Teachers and it had these fun word wall cards that we used today to talk about different Earth Day vocabulary words and ways that they each help the Earth.

We Love Earth Week 2018 {Day 2}

Hi Guys!

I’m back with day 2 of our week long “We Love Earth Week” celebration!

we-love-earth-week

Here’s what’s on the agenda today:

  • For our snack today we are having “Ants on a log”

IMG_3944

I make mine a little differently than the norm, because my kids don’t like raisins. For our “Ants on a log” we use; celery, natural peanut butter, and vegan chocolate chips. All my kiddos thoroughly enjoyed them, here’s Cruz giving them a thumbs up!

  • Weather permitting we are going on a nature walk today, and i’m going to use this free printable from Teachers Pay Teachers.

  • The Earth Day documentary we started watching yesterday is pretty long, so we are finishing it up today.

That picture is from our Chinese New Year celebration back in 2015!

I didn’t go all out like i did that year with celebrating. In fact this year’s celebration only included me buying a big bag of fortune cookies and my kids spitting them out because they “tasted really bad like chemicals”. So yay me! Mom of the year award stuff going on over here. (Totally being sarcastic)

Tip Tuesday #2

Hi Guys!

I’m back with another Tip Tuesday! (You can check out my previous Tip Tuesday #1 HERE)

Tip Tuesday

Today i’m going to share with you my tip for storing completed homeschool paperwork.

Before i show you how i store our completed paperwork, i just wanted to let you know that my state doesn’t have any requirements for as far as keeping documents is concerned. However, i like to keep all the work my children have completed just in case.

Here is how i do it.

Once my kids have completed an assignment, they hand it to me and i grade it right away. Then i go over it with them if they got anything wrong, or just hand it back to them to turn in.

When they turn it in, they put it on this 3-tier desk shelf.

IMG_3780

Once their shelf gets pretty full, then i empty it into our banker boxes.

IMG_3781

I love these boxes. I’ve been using them for holding our completed homeschool paperwork for since 2015! The great thing about these boxes is, they can fit the entire school years worth of paperwork into one of them!

IMG_3783

Then their shelf is empty and ready to be filled up again with more completed work.

IMG_3784

So, to summarize my Tip Tuesday #2, if you want an easy way to store your child’s school work, use these awesome banker boxes!
