Because there is a four year gap between the big kiddos it’s hard to do many subjects together.
History kinda works.
Geography is fun together. Especially cuddled on the couch Amazing Race style.
And of course Science works!
I use the text book as our current read aloud.
And try to include some projects that help make it even more fun and sticky in the brain…
I found this really sturdy and cute Melissa & Doug puzzle for just five buckaroos at the new TJ Maxx around the corner.
Ha. Those chalks down there. They’re mine…
They still work GREAT! And the kids felt like super cool real deal artists using them.
A little artsy trick when using chalks. Hairspray the finished product to keep the chalk from smudging. I’m tip dropping cause I like sounding like I’m a super cool real deal artist too.
Not the best balloon solar system photo in the world. But you know…I like keepin’ it real-ish.
And of course Solar System learning just wouldn’t be any fun without the Anamaniacs…
YouTube is totally one of my fave teaching tools.
Next stop, Scientists…The Sun! I’ll be sure to share those projects as we go along too!
