School Lately

You may have noticed that there have not been many posts about school lately. We actually have been learning, but for some reason I am having trouble finding time to blog about it. I have been working on getting the school room picked up more and organized, so we have been spending quite a bit more time in here lately.

Sometimes we even find a moment to kick back and relax.

Today, though, it was all shrieks and giggles. We played the silly sentences game that I got form Kendra's blog. This is actually from an idea from a Peggy Kaye book and I had it on my list to make, but then I realized Kendra had done the work for me! Jack liked it so much that I may come up with some more phrase strips, though.

The "game" is really easy to play: You have three different sentence parts (color coded) and you take one of each and read it to see what you get. We played this for over an hour today and Jack never tired of it.

It also worked really well for us because it didn't matter if Alice took off with a strip. Here she is, holding the oh-so-appropriate "without stopping" strip.

If you haven't before, be sure and check out Kendra's blog. She has tons of great ideas--this week we are using her lapbook for The Rag Coat--which I will hopefully blog about soon!
