Home School: Apples

Here are a few activities we did, when our theme was Apples. I had pictures, but I am having trouble getting them off my phone. Here is the post without them.

We did this 100 apples stamping activity.

We also did this stamping worksheet to help with our skip counting by 5's.

We did the Roll and Color math worksheet. I had Bubba do addition problems to get those answers, so it would be harder for him.

while I worked on some things with Bubba Miss Priss did this color by number worksheet. She loves color by number.

We tried our hand at making crock-pot apple-sauce. Yum!!

For Science this week, we learned about the scientific method, science safety, and then also about the life cycle of an apple tree. We used these cards to help us.

Math Games This Week

We love playing games to learn. It is such a great way to get them excited about learning something new. I do this especially in math, since it is one of my bubba's least favorite subjects. We like to use UNO. It is a great way to learn number recognition, not to mention how to be a good sport.

We also love to fish for numbers. I use these for everything. They use them to show me answers to addition problems. Working with showing numbers, recognizing them, doing mulitples. These were the greatest thing I have probably made. They cost less than two dollars to make, and we are going on our sceond year of using them in school.

 Here are just a few of the things we are doing to help us with Math. I will be sure to post more when we play new games in Math. I hope you are all having a fabulous week learning with your littles:>

Mexicana Breakfast

So I know I do not have an ounce of Hispanic blood in my body. I am basically as white and milky pale as they come. In fact in high school my Spanish teacher told me I was too white. I couldn't speak the language, even if my life depended on it. I can't roll my tongue, which made for some crazy and interesting Spanish convos in class. So I took my c+ and gave up the dream of ever being able to understand those spicy looking soap operas.

Now that you know my background on the whole Mexicana thing, I have a quick recipe to share.

I make this whenever I am short on time for dinner. Everyone loves it, which makes it a great go to meal.

Here is what you do:

Mix about 8 eggs in a cup and season with lawrys seasoning salt(my fav!). Pour into a hot greased frying pan. Cook eggs until done. Add about 1 cup of cheddar cheese and 1 1/2 cups of green salsa. Mix and heat all the way through. Serve on warm tortillas with sour cream.

These will be a crowd pleaser for any Mexican breakfast/dinner.
