I finally got some things done. The whole house has been sick and when that happens, I don't feel accomplished at all. The house is a mess and school pretty much was no go this week, so now that everyone is feeling better we will be back at it on Tuesday.
Which "To, Too, Two" to use? That is the question?!? This seems like a struggle with a lot of kiddos. My son was getting pretty frustrated with it, so I created him this cute anchor chart that can easily be put into his notes binders. Anytime we are working on this subject he just pulls this out and uses it as a reference to help him decide which "to" to use.
As always, I have made this available to you for free, you can print it out here.
If you want to go a step further, I also created a cool game to go along with this chart. If you have a race car fan, he or she will love this cool game, you can get it here.
What fun activities do you do to practice To, Too and Two? Let me know in the comments.
I will say it again, "No more boring math practice!" Nothing is worse than trying to put a worksheet filled with math facts in front of your child and expect him or her to do it without no fuss. Unless you child is a future mathematician and wants to do math all day long, your child is probably like mine. As soon as the worksheet is put in front of him, he starts throwing himself around saying he doesn't want to it, its boring. Well, I think I solved the problem, well at least for my son, I hope I did you for too!
Say goodbye to boring math fact practice and hello to fun math practice games. This template packet comes with 6 fun ways to practice math, you can use dice, playing cards or dominoes. We have used the domino template and my son really enjoyed it, plus my older children got involved too, so that just made it even easier to get him interested.
As always this is free to print. You can grab your template packet here. If you are interested in more math games, you can check out my math memory packet here.
I would love to hear what ideas you have about making math fun! Let me know in the comments.
I am back again with another great craft! I swear that I am more excited about school than my son is.. Ha! As you know from reading my other posts that I am making games and crafts to go with my son's science lessons.
This time I made this cute life cycles craft to go along with both your plant and animals life cycles lessons. You can print it here and as always it is free. I included a directions page. I didn't include an answer sheet only because I don't want to debate what came first the chicken or the egg, so you can do the life cycle of the chicken anyway you want, it doesn't matter if you put the chicken or the egg first it still turns out right.
If you are interested in a life cycles memory game you can check it out here!
What fun crafts do you do with your kiddos when learning about the life cycle of plants and animals? Let me know in the comments!
So school is about to be starting in this house in a few weeks. I am excited! I have been going through my son's science book and making some fun crafts and games. So for the lesson about what jobs animals have, I made a baboon job mat! It's simple, cute and a fun way to give your kiddo a break from book work.
You can print out everything you need right here. There is an instruction page and an answer key page too! I am really working on making my creations easy to understand. But, if you are confused or have any questions, you can always comment below.

My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
