Moving Beyond the Page ~ Age 4-5 Curriculum RELEASED

I have often been asked what we used for kindergarten with Brynne. My typical response is to read, read, read, learn letters and handwriting. Maybe throw in some fun topical math. We learned a letter a week.

This weekend I posted our review on Moving Beyond the Page. It is a literature-rich unit study product that we absolutely loved (and will be using extensively in the future to supplement our studies)!

Today I received an e-mail that the 4-5 age program has been released. Oh ... this is totally what I would have used if it would have been available when Brynne was that age. It looks EXCELLENT! It also covers a letter a lesson, based on a picture book.

You can see a sample of the A lessons, and I encourage you to check it out. I was not asked to post this recommendation. I just like to pass along valuable products when I find them. This is a product I think any Pre-K or kindergarten home educator would love to have! The cost is minimal, too, if you are able to get the books from your library. The online version of the unit studies is only $124.19 and includes the full curriculum unit study guide and the materials kit. If you don't have access to a library with the books, you can purchase them all through Moving Beyond the Page.

You can also receive an additional 10% off with coupon code FUNINTHESUN. It expires at midnight on Monday, July 8th.

A curriculum for ages 12-14 is coming soon, as well.

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
