Happy Birthday Teddy!!

Today is Theodore Roosevelt's Birthday (well, it would be if he
were alive, he'd be 145) To celebrate, Princess and I will have a Teddy Bear Tea
later today. We looked him up this morning on this site
and she is coloring this
For fun we will also read this
book.
We may also do some of these crafts
maybe with a bit of variation..allowing for Halloween to enter perhaps.We will also
read a couple of "bear themed" Halloween books...see the link on the sidebar
for a couple of examples. We will also pull out her counting bears for math today.
Somehow we need to fit in the Unplug Your Kids project.
The theme is Thin this week. Be sure to head on over and check out
what the other participants have done this week.Fill out the Mr Linky on
Mom Unplugged's site if you decide to play along so we can all see!

I'll post photots of all we do today a bit later..now we need to do "maths"..lol.

Seriously, I hope you are keeping notes on all this because someday you'll have to write a book about doing this for other parents.

It looks like another great day. P is so lucky. Your link to What to Do About Alice isn't working. I'm going to order it from the library. It looks it would work for our weekly bio book especially because we didn't have one last week.

What a great day. Thanks for mentioning this because Sam loves studying things for presidents. Hope you have a great day.

Don't forget to have lesson on the bear market -- it's never too early to learn about Wall Street :-S

Did that sound negative? Wasn't meant to...

I need my Teddy bear, my flannel jammies, a short stack of picture books, and permission to sleep for twelve hours :-)

Looks like a fun filled weekend. Maybe when my life starts getting more organized I would like to get back to the unplugged project.

Teddy Roosevelt is a neat president to learn about. One of Ami's favorite books is Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry.

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
