Thanksgiving Reading!


It can be difficult to find a great Thanksgiving children's book; however, Albert's Thanksgiving by Leslie Tryon is a true find. My mother sent my kids this book a few years back and it has become their favorite Thanksgiving book.

It is a funny tale about Albert the duck and Patsy Pig and their endeavors to get ready for the best Thanksgiving feast since 1621. You and your children will have a ball reading about all of the tasks Albert the duck must complete to satisfy the ever-demanding Patsy Pig!

Thursday Is Veterans Day!

Tomorrow is Veterans Day and many children will be home from school. On November 11, 1918, World War ended. Fighting stopped at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month. In 1938, Veterans Day became a federal holiday, to honor all of the men and women who serve and have served in our armed forces.

The Kids' Table!

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away? Now is the time to start thinking about how to set up seating arrangements for the big day. I remember (not so fondly) being escorted to the "kids' table". Unfortunately for me, this table was in the kitchen where I was usually put with cousins I did not know and saw once a year. I do not have terrific memories.

The fabulous Inspired Room blogger has pulled together very special ideas to ensure that your children will be begging you to sit at your kids' table! Click here to find her secrets!

Halloween Math Fun!


Halloween candy is not just for eating! My kids LOVE to sort their candy into piles by category and then they trade each other for their favorite candies. My youngest child is learning to multiply so he put his candy into a grid pattern and worked on his multiplication. He was able to quickly multiply the number of candy that he has by type and then in total. Sorting and counting Halloween candy is a fun way to sneak in some math in to your child's day. Have fun!
