Growing Grass: A Sunlight Experiment

I'm talking about another experiment you can do with your littlest learners today! The kids and I are discovering all the treasures a garden holds with our Garden Treasures box from Experience Early Learning. Our first week was dedicated to learning all the things that go into planting a garden including Sunlight and Water. What better way to bring this concept home than with an experiment!? As...

STEAM: Making Moon Craters

This month our learning box from Experience Early Learning has transformed us into Space Explorers, and you know that means we have to blast off to the moon! The moon is something that has always fascinated my children. They see it sometimes during the day, most of the time at night; it changes its shape, color and size! What's not to wonder about the moon?! As an Experience Early Learning...

Preschool Science: Root Study Experiment

In college, I majored in Art Education. I always wanted to be an art teacher, but the Lord had other plans. Six out of the eight years I spent as a public school teacher, I was a science teacher. It was a subject I learned so much about and quickly grew to love. (I blogged about it often in 2012 and 2013 right here!) As an Experience Early Learning (EEL) Blogger, I receive the EEL...

STEAM: Skeletal Study

I have 2 little learners... a recently turned 6 year old and a 2.5 year old. I have always been terrified of studying human anatomy. Probably because I can't remember ever really studying it before the dreaded 5th grade health class. Yall know what I'm talkin' about. So, finding fun ways to teach about the human body to my little ones is something that is new for me too, but it has been so...

This week has been one of those weeks where I am sooooo thankful for homeschooling.We had a busy beginning to the week, but the last few days- at the end of the week- my girl has been battling the flu. Flu B actually.  So please forgive all the pajama pictures.  She lived in them for the last few days.  *Homeschool blessing*I am so thankful we have our Mother Goose Time...
