I have been thinking alot lately about creating an environment of learning in my home.
From the games we play, to the books we read, and music we listen to.
I am trying to be more intentional about our time, and make it as educational & fun as possible.
We changed things up a little in our schoolroom.
Creating a corner for reading, a music station, and a table for creative projects.
We love spending time here!
Fabric letter project inspired here.
Geography games.. there are so many ways to be creative with this!
If you are a blog reader and have good ideas about teaching & learning techniques, I would love to hear about it!
I love the down time that winter offers.
Time to refocus, time to think.. to remember what I am thankful for in life.
These simple moments bring me to my center and to a place of peace.
We have been covered up with the flu virus for the last few weeks.
It’s taking all my energy for the moment,
but not to worry.. we have been eating soup, watching movies and making plans.
Here is a fun assignment that I’ve had tucked away for awhile.. :)
(One of our favorite treats)
1/2 cup popcorn kernals
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a large kettle over medium heat.
Then, toss in three kernels, and place the lid on the kettle.
Wait for the kernels to pop.
Once popped, quickly stir in the sugar, and add the remaining kernels.
Replace the lid, and listen for the kernels to start popping.
Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds,
remove the pot from the heat and transfer to bowl.
Then, salt to taste, and enjoy!
(*extra info.. I use this popper, use coconut oil and season with freshly ground sea salt)
Merry Christmas from our home to yours! xx
