Shelley Lovett’s ChildCareLand site offers a huge library of short teaching tips and learning activities videos (in streaming format) for preschool and kindergarten age students — over 300 brief, practical, helpful ideas and demonstrations that will enhance any pre-school or kindergarten age learning time.
Every weekday, Monday through Friday, we’ll post a new homeschooling “freebie” to this site. What kind of “freebies”? Stuff like: Unit Studies… Ebooks… Audio Programs… Games… Samples… Lesson Plans… classic books… and other quality resources! This is the REAL THING. Many of these will be products that you would normally pay for on their regular websites… but here on the Homeschool Freebie of the Day site, they’re 100% free… at least for that one day! Just download your copy and enjoy! It’s as simple as that!
Do know that if you sign up for freebie of the day, you’ll get an email every week telling you what they will be posting. They occasionally post “you can buy this inexpensively” items, and will send you and email or two about that item. They don’t send those type of emails out all the time though. Some of them are indeed good deals. Each weekly email includes a freebie that you get by being a subscriber and some of them are pretty neat. 🙂
Expedition Australia, Day Two. We continued this study today. There was lots of drawing to do today, which my lad just thoroughly enjoyed. Even though he would much rather draw what HE wants to draw, he also tries hard to draw what he’s asked to draw as well.
We learned about telling time, about working with a thermometer, learned a few fascinating facts about a Thorny Devil (an animal from Australia that gets water from crevasses in it’s skin, and only eats ants). It was NOT our animal of the day, but it was never the less a very fascinating animal.
We did a couple of crafts, did the lapbooking exercises (not all, but most), and just had fun visiting Australia on the computer. This unit study is also available directly from DownloadNGo.
After we did that, we worked outside for a bit…the lad was out for 20 minutes before “mommy, my hands are frozen”. so in he went and entertained himself while I finished cleaning up the backyard. It was a job that kept me busy for a good hour and a bit. I was frozen when I finally got back in, the lad was helpful by getting me the things I needed to keep the house from being a total mess with mucky boots and wet times coming in and being put in the garage to dry off before being put away for the winter.
Yesterday while in London I stopped at a lady’s house who was selling some homeschool stuff. I get a Jump Start animal Adventure CD from her. The lad and I had fun playing with it until he got his confidence up that he could play it well, and then I got supper going and some laundry on the way while he played. He learned about different animals and had fun while doing so. It was worth the $2 asking price. 🙂
We have started reading a book at night after supper. We try to read it as a family as much as possible. I picked one at random, but we might start being more deliberate about the books that we choose in the future. We are reading “The Secret of the Hidden Cave” by Bettilu Davies. We are up to Chapter 10 now, another 7 days and we’ll have a new book to read.

Or in the eyes of one Five year old lad…NOT! Tiggers are NOT wonderful things. Tiggers get frowns thrown at them. 🙂
We had some fun doing the study today.
We learned about people stripes (finger prints) and we learned about pug marks. And that people have footprints (not pugmarks) and they like tigers, our footprints are different. We put our feet in water and stood on a piece of paper. We learned how they are the same, and how they are different. Just like every tiger’s stripes are different, so are every person’s finger prints different.
VERY fascinating. We managed two different ways of getting our finger prints. One was by using a fingerprint from one of the child ID places, and the other by taking pencil, rubbing it on some paper, rubbing our finger over the pencil marks and then taking a piece of tape to preserve the pencil rubbing off our fingers. The lad thought this was very cool.
We had a brief look at the Indochinese tiger today. and completely skipped the “tiggers” part of the study. That was just not a good thing. and Silly Odin… putting his head under the water! Doesn’t he know that tigers don’t like getting their heads wet!
A good study today, though a bit of a challenge at times to keep a lad’s focus on continuing the study…MUCH too intriguing to get finger and foot prints. 🙂
