Weather Unit: Intro Notebook Pages (Free)

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

We finally started our (long awaited) weather unit! These are the pages we went over on our first day… it covers a few basics and some background about the history of meteorology.  I also rounded up some interesting weather facts and we read through those as well.

Then we’ll be jumping off into a study of the atmosphere before learning about air pressure, weather fronts and all that.

They are free to download just click on the link below. The answers are included, but are not pictured below:

EggSperiment: Brush Your… errr… Egg (Part 4 of 4) and the Free Printable EggSperiment Pack

Monday, April 14th, 2014

This activity helps kids understand how very important it is to brush your teeth every day!

For this activity we chose coke, grape soda (we didn’t have any grape juice) and coffee. You can use any beverage that you think will stain your teeth.  The kids each selected two drinks and we let the eggs soak for several hours.

As the kids “brushed” their eggs, they were amazed at how quickly and easily the “stain” came off.

Addition and Subtraction with Pete the Cat (Free Worksheets)

Monday, March 24th, 2014

My daughter borrowed several Pete the Cat books from the library last week.  She’s been reading them over and over, so I made her a couple of math practice pages with a Pete the Cat type theme! She quickly used up those pages and I went back and added in 5 more… So, there are 10 pages of addition and subtraction pages. The last couple pages have some skip counting (by 2s and 5s).

There are nine worksheet pages and a blank page to use with a die. They are free to download if you’re interested:

P.S. There were problems with page 10 that have now been fixed and the file has been reloaded.
