During #weekwithoutwalls, 6th grade students had a blast learning as they played a game about producers and consumers, discussed tidal patterns, wrote and performed skits in front of their peers, constructed a group art project, and more! #handsonlearning

Exposing children to musical sounds and instruments during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Music helps develop children's language, literacy and communications skills. Playing with musical instruments also stimulates the various senses and helps children in learning!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It also develops listening, reading and writing skills, improving fluency of speech, and communication.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our Ss this year are incredibly tactile learners. Anything hands on helps them retain what we’re learning. Today we created our own mighty minuscule DNA! Ss used key vocabulary and showed connections between big ideas like cells, chromosomes and DNA. #handsonlearning #iteach6th

Help Percy Deliver the Mail! ✉️ Anyone else have a Thomas lover? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Help him deliver the Mail by drawing houses on some paper bags! I saved this for after nap and he freaked! If you saw my stories you’ll know what I’m talking about! Being 2 is hard and full of hot and cold moments but it is always a time when EVERYTHING is so Exciting!!! And thank goodness for that because it really helps make up for the rest ☺️😆 .

A Feely Bag. One of the cheapest, easiest and fun learning resources! For learning new vocabulary, for sensory play. For understanding size and shape. Three ways to play.  1. Look, feel and talk about a selection of objects together then place in the bag and ask your child to ‘find...’ an object.  2. Put a selection of objects with different textures in the bag and ask the child to ‘find ..’ something ‘smooth’ ‘rough’ etc.  3. Share a selection of objects then put in the bag. The child needs to guess an object which the adult has found in the bag. This is a really good way to teach the vocabulary of size and shape.  #instaphoto #underfives #handsonlearning #learningthroughplay #learning #funforkids #instakid

I’ve been needing a play tray - apart from the #kmartplaytray - for some time. And then along came my friend Mel from @worksatplay who created these perfectly sized wooden trays!! Today we explored Australian animals in one, before going for a walk through the bush. Sadly no kangaroos or koalas were seen, thankfully no snakes were seen and the squawks of the cockatoos filled our ears!! #learningthroughplay #handsonlearning #playbasedlearning #playtray #smallworld #smallworldplay #australiananimals #finemotorskills #finemotoractivity #floraandfauna #sensoryplay #imaginativeplay #earlyyearseducation #earlyyearsideas #minizoobr18 #natureplay #toddleractivities #toddlerlife #momlife #mumlife #momsofinstagram #reggiokids #letthemplay #playmatters #playathomemummy #learningatheart

Counting, sorting and colour matching with pom poms and flash cards. This held his attention for a couple of goes but it got a bit easy for him pretty quickly so we played a game where I put the pom poms on the wrong colours and he had to fix them up. That was more challenging and more fun I think because he thought it was hilarious I kept getting it so wrong 🤣 #mumyoureawally

Money money money money, moneyyyyy! 🎶 This morning we did the most simple activity but covered so many different skills and knowledge!! First we just looked and talked about all the different Australian coins and notes. I put a piece of masking tape on the table and sticky taped one of each down, writing what is was next to it. Nixon used tracking and sorting skills to search through and place each coin where it belonged. The towers he made was essentially a bar graph so then we counted each column. Then his favourite part- dropping the coins in their correct ‘house’ ($7 money box from @kmartaus which is brilliant for sorting activities). Kids just really love to drop things!!! Elias loooved this part especially, a great fine motor skill for him which I guided his hand to show him how. After a few assists, he nailed it! I then showed them notes from a few different countries including USA (duh) and I showed them how there are faces on notes.....Then the boys got the shock of their lives... their own notes with their faces on them 🤣🤣🤣 Nixon decided on the worth of his Ausmerican dollars and then they decorated them. More money activities to come- but both of my boys are asleep at the same time right now and THAT today... is PRICELESS!! 💰✌🏼😴 •. •. • •. •  #creativecubsclub #moneyactivities #brisbanemums #numberactivity #visualtracking #boymum #lifeskillsforkids  #ausmericankids #learningshouldbefun #playbasedlearning #earlylearning #handsonlearning

🐸 Frog Addition 🐸⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today I want to give a huge shout out to all the amazing teachers, and savvy parents out there who spread amazing tricks like the one I’m about to share with you! I’ve ran across the idea of using a divided plate for addition a few times on Pinterest, and I instantly knew Little C would love it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Since we’ve been studying the rainforest, I thought we’d use her little frogs as manipulatives, but you could use counting bears, beans, gems, or anything else you have on hand. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
First Little C rolls the dice 🎲 twice to see which numbers she needs to add together. Then since we are working on writing out numbers, I have her write the numbers down on a laminated recording sheet. Of course you can decide what works best for your kids based on their skill level. When we first started playing, I would use a random piece of scrap paper and write the equations down for her just so she could see them written out. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
To find the answer to each equation, Little C uses the frogs to do a little part, part, whole addition. Scroll through our pictures and videos to see this activity in action!⁣
⁣
TIP: Use a bucket to keep the dice 🎲 from flying all over the room. I’ve given C plenty of time to throw foam dice all over the house, this activity called for a bit more control! #youngmathematicians #kindergartenmath #sortingandcounting #handsonlearning

#hereisourhomeschool 🔎 Science!🔬My 14 year old is taking a science class at a local co-op using Apologia Physical Science. He really enjoys science and it’s been a huge blessing to be able to outsource that subject for him! 
My 7 and 11 year old are using Science Shepherds “Introductory Science” this year. It’s our first year using it, and the kids are enjoying it. They watch a short 3-4 minute video on the lesson, then do 1-2 pages a day. Short and sweet! They have two separate levels (ages 6-8 do level A, and ages 9-11 do level B) and I love that they can learn the same thing at the same time. Topics include things like creation, geology, biology, astronomy, oceanography, meteorology, and more! *The 2nd picture shows some of our favorite books for supplementing when needed/wanted. Annnnd, the other pictures show our MOST favorite way to do science-HANDS ON! 🙌🏼😍 We live in the country on close to 5 acres and LOVE the lessons we’ve learned from just being outside exploring! From watching and helping our goats give birth (what an experience!), watching chicks hatch out of their eggs and raising them, raising monarchs, and observing random critters and insects we find (like the bird we helped today!), we have learned so much! Check out #rockwellfamilyfarm to see more pictures of life on our little farm. #homeschool #homeschoollife #homeschoolscience #handsonlearning #lifeislearning #science #intentionalhomeschooling #scienceshepherd #apologiascience

We took a road trip down to Homer today. It’s pretty much our favorite place for a day trip. We popped into Islands & Oceans, the Visitor Center for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Kachemak Bay has some of the largest tides in the world and this post shows real-time tide height. It’s pretty much the funnest thing. 🌊

Students are never too old for bubbles, especially when they provide the perfect way to integrate math and science. We tested out some “perfect” bubble recipes, and then modified the ratios of glycerin and corn syrup and tested their new solutions with different ratios to determine which solution was the best.  As one student pointed out, “this feels more like science than math!” #STEM #iteach6 #middleschoolmath #mathteacher #teacherwin #handsonlearning #bubbles #teachersofinstagram

We learned about our bodies last year, but my daughter is still obsessed with those books. This fall we’re learning about Animals in science and the 7 wonders of the world in history, but that’s kind of sciencey too, right?

Building our small moment story arcs was a success! Small moments are still challenging for our students even after a few years of #lucycalkinswriting. This visual, and being able to manipulate the events really seemed to help them today.

This excerpt is to good to not live on my page, to good to not share, and will also serve as my personal reminder for why we do what we do! "Teaching is not about answering questions but about raising questions – opening doors for them in places that they could not imagine. Teaching is about teaching them the tools of learning which will enable them to pursue learning all their lives. Not answer questions – end all discussion and pass exams. That is the reason why most children never open a science book once they finish with school. That is the reason why there is a serious global shortage of scientists. Even when we teach what we know – the answers – we need to teach them how we arrived at those answers and then ask them, ‘If you faced this issue, what questions would you ask to find an answer.’ We need to focus far more on derivation, problem solving methodology and analytical skills than on actually arriving at some formula or solution." - yawar baig

Teaching is about teaching them the tools of learning which will enable them to pursue learning all their lives. Not answer questions – end all discussion and pass exams. That is the reason why most children never open a science book once they finish with school. That is the reason why there is a serious global shortage of scientists. Even when we teach what we know – the answers – we need to teach them how we arrived at those answers and then ask them, ‘If you faced this issue, what questions would you ask to find an answer.’ We need to focus far more on derivation, problem solving methodology and analytical skills than on actually arriving at some formula or solution." - yawar baig • • • • • • • • • • • • #lifeschool  #alwaylearning  #littlemoments  #mamahomeschools  #momblogger  #mommyblogger  #reallife  #homeschoolcollective  #eclectichomeschool  #handsonlearning  #homeschoolwin  #homeeducator  #kidthings  #homeschooltips  #foodforthought  #mywhy  #yawarbaig

Our wonderful nursery teacher Chelsea has created a fabulous resource called “what’s in the box” a musical game which encourages turn taking. The box has many exciting objects inside which represent different nursery rhymes. Each child gets a turn at choosing an object and the group sing the relevant song.. So much fun.

✋Pushing & Pulling for Hand Strength🤚
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our favorite hand strengthening activities for kids fall into 3 main categories: weight bearing, pushing/pulling, and squeezing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out these fun pushing/pulling ideas for getting those little hands and fingers into shape!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 || Lego or Duplo Blocks – Awesome for developing grasp strength!  Smaller Lego bricks are great for older kids with more advanced skills, while the larger Duplo version is best for the younger crowd.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 || Velcro – Pulling against heavy duty Velcro is another great hand strengthener.  Try adapting books using Velcro, making file folder games, or making other fun velcro fine motor tasks!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 || Rolling Pins – Grasping, pushing, and rolling with a rolling pin are great ways to strengthen little hands and fingers.  Try it on play dough, bubble wrap, or during cooking activities!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4 || Wagons or Laundry Baskets - Have kids push/pull their friends or a load of books/toys!

Learning doesn't always happen in the daytime hours.

We're in an impromptu tent camping overnight and Brad is teaching Wyatt how to chop through a log.

The pictures are blurry but this blesses me so much.

#Probots are amazing for #math, #coding, #engagement and so much more. Today they chose to make a chart so they could keep track of the ProBots distance in inches for future drawings on cardboard.
So many Kids made the connection with differs angles today!

When we need a little peace we make a little mess. Homemade applesauce play dough with cinnamon and nutmeg. Both girls (4 and 2) enjoyed measuring, pouring, mixing, stirring, and kneading.  This play dough smells amazing and both girls enjoyed their individual apple pie stations for a long time and are looking forward to it tomorrow. #sensoryplay #sensory #playdough #playdoughfun #handsonlearning #learningthroughplay #siblingplay #cooperativeplay #preschoolsensoryplay #preschoolsensory #toddlersensory #toddlersensoryplay #toddlersensoryactivity #preschool #toddler

•Play-doh Colour Mixing!• This hands-on, sensory activity is a simple and fun way to introduce colour mixing at home or in the classroom! All you need is red, blue & yellow play-doh!
.
•I traced the lid of a play-doh container with a sharpie to make 9 circles, and labelled the circles with the colours we would be mixing! This step isn’t necessary but I wanted to make it more clear for Bobby!
.
•I rolled little balls of play-doh for each circle.. ex: red in the 1st, yellow in the 2nd,.. then a little bit of both red and yellow in the 3rd so he could mix them together. (swipe to the video to see!) Before mixing you can ask the child to predict what they think will happen :)
.
•After our activity we read our 3 colour books: Usborne Big Book of Colours, Usborne Lift the Flap Colours, and White Rabbit’s Color Book by Alan Baker - Swipe to see some pages from the inside!
.
It’s “colorful fun” week at @tagfromtheheart with @montessorifromtheheart and @cintaandco - check out #TagFromTheHeart for some other great ideas!

We love writing in sand trays and squishy bags (bags filled with paint or gel) and with our fall alphabet and number apples we’ve been writing in oatmeal with cinnamon sticks! It’s so fun, and smells yummy too! Today we picked an apple out of the basket, flipped it over, identified the letter or number, and then traced it in the oatmeal.

What is a fun “out of the box” way you like to get kids writing?

To further our students' knowledge of how computers work and strengthen their programming skills, we brought in Turing Tumbles. Based on the Turing Machine, the Turing Tumble lets students see how simple switches, connected together in clever ways, can do incredibly smart things. It completely engages students' senses by allowing them see and feel how computers work under the case.

After many promptings and several directed scripture-study sessions, @oakhavenacademy will be changing to @nourishing.education! When I began this homeschool adventure it was for my children. As we have gone along I realize that our prompting to homeschool was for ME! I have changed so much in this process and I think the Lord knew I needed something that would require my submission to His will. I can’t do this without Him. God’s word will teach my children more than I ever will and for that reason my call to implement a nourishing education in their lives (and mine) is one that I will treasure and do my best to fulfill!
