Hello dear ones! I hope you are well. It’s hard to believe that January is almost over. We celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. day yesterday. We actually did our craft and studies on Friday. Michael reread a book about MLK Jr. yesterday though. Here’s our last week. I’ll include the links at the end of this post.

A Penny Saved~ Money lesson at our homeschool group

The kids earned fake money to use at the group store.

The hostess read the kids a book about a little girl saving her money.

The kids took turns coming up to count coins and to figure out math problems for the book.

Then the kids solved money worksheets together.

They used the money they earned to purchase goodies at the group store. Moms brought in baked goods and used toys to sell.

Another day…Michael decided to be a Native American for the day. The dogs were dragged into it!

Remember the math book I mentioned last week? Here it is again. I used rhymes and tricks from the book to make the metric and imperial standard flipbooks above. Already Michael has some of the measurements memorized. I, for the first time (at 29 years old!), finally know my measurements. I highly recommend this book!
