Science Camp

My friend April and I are hosting a science camp at the end of June (through our local education enrichment coalition). I’m researching my half (chemistry and electricity) and trying to make the experiments and concepts flow. Because you know how I like it when things match. I feel like a segue from a discussion […]

Full Day

School may be out but this is another entirely too busy week. Today: Story time at the library! The Children’s Librarian is out of town and asked if Ellie and I would host while she was gone. Ellie read the last book and planned a craft for the kids. It was also our last girl […]

Finger Puppets

It all started with the corner of a fruit snack wrapper.

Oak Meadow Grade 2 (the handy stuff)

Emily’s Hot Tips for Oak Meadow Grade 2 Go ahead and get both a big wall map and a globe. They are equally important to an understanding of geography. If you don’t like to be outside or if nature makes you feel creepy, Oak Meadow Grade 2 is not for you. An enormous chunk of […]

Welcome to Summer Vacation

Oak Meadow Grade 2 is a wrap. We had 172 school days and nine billion happy memories. The first event of summer? Brownie Hiking Badge! She made GORP, researched hiking gear (visit to the Bass Pro camping and hiking section), practiced her observation skills (counted bugs), picked a route, and kept track on the map. […]

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.

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.

Animal Classification

3 months agoHobbies / Knitting : Yarn Miracle

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.
