May the Fourth Be With You

Unexpected Homeschool Perk #504: Today is a holiday.


There’s a bird nest in the fern on the front porch. We’ll be using the side door for a while. Other signs of spring:

Nesting Instinct

Last year, a bird built her nest inside my bike helmet. This year I’ve been storing my (new) bike helmet upside down in my basket. She started a nest under my helmet instead. I can’t win. Happy Earth Day!

Bespoke Kitty

For art and crafts this week, Ellie wanted to sew something with the machine. Really she wanted to sew a dress for herself, but I convinced her that was a big project and we should wait for summer when there was more time. We made this instead. She embroidered the face and pinned everything up […]

Admitting Defeat

Sometimes it’s OK to admit defeat and let things go. You win today, kitties. At least until you get up for lunch.

Monkey’s Paw

It’s 7:30am and everyone else is still asleep. In the case of the cats, they are back asleep. I’m going to have another cup of coffee and keep working on this little blue monkey.

More on Making the Bed

Some days have more obstructions than others. Happy National Pet Day!

Making the Bed

Sometimes it’s easier to work around an obstruction than to try and remove it.

Animal Classification

For the purposes of Grade 2 science, animals are classified as: mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods. I also mentioned cephalopods because octopuses are amazing. I deeply regret not having any plastic protozoa. No one seems to make them.

Little Birdies, Little Birdies

All done and on their way to the hospital Gala. I haven’t made birdies in ages. Their little legs are still big fun. Next up: a fox for a customer (special request).


I don’t know where I saw this one mentioned, but I hope the rest of it is a good as the introduction. Ellie just finished Junonia (Kevin Henkes). Her current reader is the first of the Down Girl and Sit series. It’s short but really funny – the cat calls himself “Here Kitty Kitty” and […]

What We Do About Math

Ellie is a HUGE fan of math. This makes perfect sense to me: Math is cool. Oak Meadow Grade 2 is purposefully flexible about how much and how complicated math practice can be – the idea is to tailor the experience to the student’s needs/development/attentiveness. There is also lots of ‘mental’ math encouragement. Our mental […]

Math Games

Michael thinks he fixed my ties to Big Pharma. He said to hurry up and post something to see. SUMoku is by the Bananananangrams people. You can find it on Amazon, but I think I saw it for the first time in a bookstore.


I haven’t made birdies in ages. This set of three is for the hospital’s fundraiser – there’s a silent auction. (I’m also checking to see if my RSS feed is still hawking questionable pharmaceuticals since I updated all the plug-ins.) Buy No RX Zanaflex, Buy Cardizem No RX Required, Buy No RX Ventolin […]

Never Stop Learning

Aw man. I just realized I have to re-learn cursive to teach it in Grade 3. Order Men Attracting Pheromones Online, Buy Cefadroxil, Avapro Free Sample, Buy 3 Panel Drug Test (THC/COC/MET) Online, Find No RX Skin & Coat Support Dogs, Calming Chews Small Dogs Online Review, Acyclovir, […]

Ten Weeks To Go

2 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

How many more times we can use the little plastic animals in the last 10 weeks of Oak Meadow Grade 2? Ellie finished her embroidery project. We’ve also been carrying and borrowing in math (regrouping). We’ve covered all the multiplication tables up to 12 (Ellie has learned 2, 10, 4, 3, and will probably earn […]

If You’re Following Along

The 1 mill, which needed 60% of the vote to pass, failed. The 3 mill, which needed a simple majority, passed (56%). While the county has lost about $3.6 million for schools, it’s kept enough millage to get matching money from the state and to stay in compliance with state funding requirements. The school system […]
