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?

The Letter 'B' - Day 4

We started with MATH:
I pulled out a little bag of buttons and we estimated how many buttons were in there. Collin and I both guessed way too low. We sorted them by colors and counted each color then I added them together and realized we have over 200!!
I wrote down the numbers on the white board and I had Collin put them in numerical order.
Then we used the buttons and worked on patterns.
Science time!! We pulled out bones and Collin and I fit them together with brads. Tons of fun. ;) After we got it together I told him there were two REAL skeletons hidden in the room somewhere. He guess immediately that I meant his and mine. =) We talked about what skeletons do and why they're important.

Just for FUN we made balloon prints on the back of the lapbook. He just dunked a balloon in paint and then patted it around on the paper.
