Valentine’s is one of my favorite holidays.I love seeing all the heart clip art and the mushy cards out there. It is also my anniversary. So it’s another reason I love it so much.
We are still working on addition in math. So I thought since I found this cute clip art dice that I would make some simple addition worksheets of adding 1 – 6.

Welcome to Week 3 of the Virtual Curriculum Fair. This weeks theme and topic is Exploring Our World: Social Studies and more Science. The co-hosts of this week’s curriculum fair are Susan from Homeschooling Hearts and Minds and Stacie from Super Mommy to the Rescue. The Clip Art on the Virtual Curriculum Fair button was done by Story Rock. You will notice a linky at the bottom of this post. The linky will take you to other homeschool bloggers that share what curriculum they like and what works for them. This is a great time to see different curriculum to give you an idea for future curriculum as well as a peek inside. I know I am always looking for new curriculum. If you would like to know more about the curriculum fair visit Susan’s Introduction Post so you can see what other topics have been covered and what is coming up.
Today we headed to the Weis Earth Science Museum for a spur of the moment field trip. We couldn’t make it to Neenah in time for the showing/funeral service of my husband’s uncle. My daughter had a doctor’s appointment this morning. He did make an appearance with my son to the gathering. He dropped off my daughter and I at the museum.
The museum was very interesting. It contains information about history of Wisconsin and science. It’s not very big and probably only took us 30 minutes to go through.
Welcome to a peek inside what our week was this past week. I am linking up to My Week In Review hosted by Home to 4 Kiddos.
Last weekend we finally got some packing snow. In fact it was the first time in a long time we have had packing snow. Last year we got snow but then it was to bitter cold to go out and enjoy it. So even though we didn’t feel the greatest and it was not bitter cold we all went outside to build snowmen. We had a blast. I paid for it as I ended up with a sinus infection, bronchitis and the start of pneumonia, but it was worth it to see the kids have fun.
We finished early so I wanted to find something to challenge the kids with, so I decided on giving them a 100 building block STEM challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to get them to figure out how to build a building that would not fall down.
Each one of my kids took a turn at building their own design. I tried to have them do it together but my daughter wanted to do things her way and wouldn’t compromise at all.
I started by giving them a bin full of 100 blocks of different shapes and sizes and I let them construct from there.
