Littles Learning Link Up: August 1, 2017

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually toward the beginning of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child(ren).

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

What have we been up to?

Not a lot of change since last week. We are still enjoying the summer reading programs at our two local libraries. Last week the children got to plant radishes and lettuce, which are actually growing quite nicely. And at the other library there was a lumber museum demonstration. The children all got to help saw off a "cookie" from a log. 

Hannah and a friend worked together, then daddy came to help.

Daddy also helped Harold.

Tabitha and Amelia worked together twice so they could both have a "cookie."

We didn't get as much done last week for school as I had hoped. Took me quite a while to finish up the two reviews that were posted last week. So, we are hoping for a better week this week. We didn't even get to "fly" to Australia until this week. Though we did read some books last week. I did discover that Harold's Learning to R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook is great for him to work on while I am having ECC time with the older girls. 

We will continue our summer school session this week and into next week, then we will take another break before starting school in September, like we did last year.  We are working on finishing up ECC with our lessons on Australia and I hope to spend some time doing all the hands-on science observations from the different units that we didn't get to through the school year. 

Let's take a look at that review schedule:

Last week I posted my reviews of Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit from ACTIVA Products and the Learn to R.E.A.D Curriculum Notebook from The Crafty Classroom. The review for English on a Roll will go live this week, as will my review of Heirloom Audio Productions' In the Reign of Terror. The review for Hey Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! from Greek 'n' Stuff will be posting next week. Plus, I have just been assigned to review The Everyday Family Chore System from Everyday Homemaking (review posting later this month) and the Charlotte's Web E-Guide from Progeny Press (review posting in September).

Some things I would like to share with you:

I also started a new weekly feature called Fun Fiction Friday, where I share the books the older girls and I are reading, sharing their thoughts on the books, and possibly even a review of a Juvenile book I am reading. 

This Saturday I will be starting Picture Book Saturday. This post will feature the picture books we read during the week, with the children each sharing which one was their favorite.

Hoping to make both of these consistent, weekly features here on Tots and Me...Growing Up Together. 

Are you running out of ways to keep your children busy this summer? Check out my Summer of Fun Round Up:

Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 12 wonderful posts linked up. Sadly, there were no clicks, so I will only be sharing a randomly selected post this week.

Please, don't forget to stop by other posts that are linked up. See what catches your eye, stop by, pin the post to a relevant board, and perhaps leave a comment to let the author of the blog know you have been by for a visit. I know I appreciate others commenting and letting me know they have read my posts, so I am sure others do too.

This week's randomly selected post is:

Join the Party!

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your young children? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on one of my relevant boards, and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.

Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our school time. By linking up you are giving me permission to use a picture from your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your child, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Monday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button. Just link it to my Littles Learning Link Up permalink please.
