Power My Learning- Great Resource for Parents and Teachers

I'm not sure if my daughter or I was more excited about finding these easy to use math games on Power My Learning.  In the last two days my daughter has asked about a million times to play these games.  So far we have only been exploring the math section under Kindergarten.   She seemed to really enjoy most of the counting games until she got into geometry and was working on  2D versus 3D shapes. 

It was nice to see where she struggled so I could in turn find some new ideas on how to teach that portion to her.  I adore being her first and forever teacher and tools like this make it much easier. There are so many games that I'm sure if your kid likes dinosaurs they probably have a dino game!  My daughter wanted to play all the Curious George games.  

I also have a touch screen computer and that made playing the games more interactive rather then a traditional mouse.  I did try to have her play on my tablet but for some reason the site slowed down on my tablet.  Might be more of a tablet issue over the site so no worries go get on and find your child's grade level and get them reviewing before school starts again.  

Not only is this website great for parents but for teachers as well.   The site has thousands of free games, videos, and interactives in all major K-12 subjects and best part they are aligned to the Common Core Standards for education.  This is by far a webpage you need to bookmark, pin on Pintrest, share on Facebook, write it on a sticky note so you have access to it:  POWER MY LEARNING.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
