We finished Red Sails to Capri by Ann Weil yesterday. It took a few chapters to get the E engaged, but by the end she was asking me to read more after I was finished. The story inspired us to look up information and pictures about Capri and the Blue Grotto. The kids got a kick out of the fact that they now know a "bad" word in Italian (stupido)😂. In addition to the vocabulary words that Bookshark provided we also looked up at least a dozen others. I love literature based learning! ❤️📚 Now a trip to Capri is in order. 😉 @bookshark

It’s been so fun watching my guys work with this interactive hundreds chart. On their own, they are discovering patterns and tricks and growing their number sense .... so much more effective than me telling them these things. And it’s just plain fun! Thanks @letsplayschool for the inspiration! #math #learnbydoing #mathiscool #handsonlearning #homeschool #homeschooling #learnathome #raisingboys #momofboys #thereadingtrain

We read the classic Very Hungry Caterpillar in celebration of #bookweek this afternoon. The children loved acting out the story with our laminated fruits, complete with “eaten through” holes! Weaving the caterpillar through our “leaves” was a fun challenge 🐛☘️ #theveryhungrycaterpillar #bookweek2018 #ericcarle #reading #earlyliteracy #picturestory #fdc #familydaycare #childhood #childcare #teacher #teachersofinstagram #teachermum #earlylearning #earlylearning101 #finemotorskills #fms #eylf #readtoyourkids #playideas #actitout #alphabetkidsfdc #learnathome #toddlerfun

For our handwriting practice this week we are using these fun apple tracing cards from @michele_dillon. We made ours into a flip book so I wasn't chasing down cards😊. After Little Guy traced the letter he could search for the magnet alphabet letter & then stamp it into his playdough. Adding a little hands on activity always gives my Little Guy a little motivation to focus for a few minutes! Another fun add on would be to add apple seeds onto your playdough letter!

This morning has been all about fairy tales and castles and very make-shift swords and shields

Name rocks are on our shelves this week ⚪️ Children may need to be exposed to a new concept many, many times before they grasp it. Repeating the same activity over and over can potentially get boring so 'same but different' is important. That is, giving them the same task but presenting in a different way so they think they're doing something new. We have letter magnets, puzzles, cards etc so I've made some rocks to add to the collection. It was a big bag from Bunnings so I've made up the rest of the alphabet but we're starting with names this week. BTW, can anyone remind me where those felt letters can be found? #namerocks #alphabetrocks #namewriting #learningthroughplay #learnathome #invitationtoplay #playathome #funlearningathome #playmatters #playislearning #playbasedlearning #preschool #preschoolathome #toddleractivities #kidsactivities #toddlerplay #preschoolplay #preschoolathome #handsonlearning #handsonactivities #earlylearning #earlychildhood #kindergartenactivities #makinglearningfun #play #playideas #playathomemummy #littleplayideas

There is just something about new school supplies that makes me smile. I always loved the first day of school, as a student and as a teacher. •
So, in honor of the first day of school for many of you out there (school doesn’t officially start here until next week), I finally got the preschool post up on the blog! •
Over the last couple of years, I’ve tried a couple of different curriculums and learned some things about teaching our boys (2 yo and 3 yo) at home. At times, I’ve felt so overwhelmed, too overwhelmed to plan anything. Some days it’s hard enough just keeping 3 little men alive, but thankfully I’ve found some wonderful tools (from @leighanndutton , @busytoddler, and others) to help me be intentional with our time at home, and I’m so excited to share them with all of you! If I can do it, you can, too. We don’t do sit-down “school” everyday, but it helps me so much to have a weekly goal and focus. •
Praying our boys enjoy what we have in store for them this year! •

This week our #inspirecreateplay theme is Nursery Rhymes. We love nursery rhymes in our house and will find one for almost every activity we do.
.
Singing and rhyming are fantastic tools to help develop language and conversational skills in your children.
.
Today's activity was all about fine motor and coordination. They boys loved dipping their sponges in the paint and giving the sheep and the bags some wool.

Miss A has been asking us a lot of questions about laptops, iPads and phones lately! Given that dad @shenoybalaji works for Apple, we decided to introduce her to Steve Jobs.
.
.
Miss A was amazed with his story. Especially the part where he would tinker around and build stuff in his garage as a kid! Now that really captured Miss A’s imagination! 😉
.
.
Also, we made this cool cardboard MacBook inspired by @thedadlab 💻 using aluminum foil and stuck a printout of keyboard ⌨️ inside. Miss A loves ‘working’ on it and she even took it with her to dad’s office for ‘bring your kids to work’ day! ❤️❤️

Our sweet experiment exploring the principle of balanced and unbalanced forces. This is way more exciting to do than you might originally think. I definitely recommend going outside and giving it a try! ...
I also heartily recommend watching Generation Genius episodes with your kids. They are awesome!! I put a link in my bio. They are only 10 minutes long but packed with great information, total kid jokes, and exciting experiments. My kids are hooked on these! They also let you watch the episodes for FREE for the first 30 days. Afterwards the subscription is only $15/month.

Wild garden small world 🍄🐝🍃 The girls enjoyed the bugs #kmartplaytray so I decided to remake it on a larger scale for this week's small work table. I added our new mushroom people from My Big World Playscapes @melanieshanks35 - I find that my eldest just seems to be more involved when there's people included. #smallworldplay #learningthroughplay #learnathome #invitationtoplay #playathome #funlearningathome #playmatters #playislearning #playbasedlearning #preschool #preschoolathome #toddleractivities #kidsactivities #toddlerplay #preschoolplay #preschoolathome #handsonlearning #handsonactivities #earlylearning #earlychildhood #kindergartenactivities #makinglearningfun #play #playideas #playathomemummy #littleplayideas

I’m in our classroom tonight with two laptops going and Colt’s curriculum in front of me. I have Pinterest open on one computer and the Homeschool Mom Box Swap YouTube collab open on the other other.
.
This box swap was the funnest thing I have participated in in a while. A bunch of YouTube mamas got together (coordinated by Rachel @rachel_day2dayjoys) and sent each other surprise boxes of goodies. The idea was to bless another homeschooling mama. I watched the collab last year and participated this year. There are thirty some videos and I’m so excited to binge watch tonight!
.
To see my unboxing, click the link in my profile. Spoiler Alert - this ranks up among the best gifts ever given to me because each item was so perfectly “me”. Thanks @creatingessence! I sent a box to @jamerrillstewart. The playlist link will be in the description box of my video.
.
I can’t wait to go watch some mamas get spoiled! There’s nothing like celebrating with others to do a heart so good. 💕

This has been a favorite Back to School book for my Little Guy. Every night he asks me for "the old lady" book. He loves the silliness of the book & the fun illustrations! Such a fun book for the 1st day of school!

Some colour sorting before breakfast this morning, with our @joguines_grapat coloured wooden bowls and marbles 😍 An extra challenge to use the wooden tongs, which provide excellent pincer grip practise (a precursor to palmar grasp as children head toward the tripod grip used for writing in later years). Using pegs and scrunching paper balls with our little ones are both great for muscle development, too! ... Although not quite as pretty as our bowls and tongs! 😉 #honeybeetoys
