About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Rhyme/Music Activity Thursday: Hickory Dickory Dock

First we read this book. I found it at the library. ;)
Then we learned this song.
We made out own clocks. ;) I cut the numbers out of an old calendar and I cut the 'mice' our of brown and white paper. They look sort of like half hearts.There is string attached to the mouse to look like the tail too. This is a picture of Collin's.

For older children: one of the girls at playgroup is 9 -- she's homeschooled and comes with her younger brother so we talked about limericks. Hickory Dickory Dock is a limerick so after we discussed what a limerick is -- proper order of rhymes and syllables -- she wrote her own. ;) It was fun!
