Isn't our button cute? Katie designed it, she's so talented! I have no idea how to do that kind of stuff, my DH is my tech support!
This week I started a new thing posting Teach Me Tuesday and 123 Learn with Me Thursday. I wanted to share on a regular basis the simple language and math activities I do with my two year old, and I thought it'd give you all an opportunity share too. I know when we do something neat with our kids, we love to brag about it. I also thought this would be a great idea, because I'd gotten a few emails from some of my blogging buddies with questions about learning activities. You know how it is, the more heads there are working together, the better the ideas!
Well I've been talking with Katie over at A Listmaker's Life, and we've decided to start a new venture together: ABC and 123: a Learning Cooperative. The idea is to try and compile the great lessons and activities we do with our kids and share them so other parents and educators came come to ABC and 123 to find and share ideas. We're trying to keep things organized by themes, subjects, and loosely by grade levels so it'll be easy to find activities to do with our children when they need help with a particular concept or subject or when you just want to have some fun.
For this to work, we are going to be searching high and low for great ideas, but we also need participation from you! So if you've got an idea to share please consider sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you, and tell all your friends to send us something too!
Check out the following links for more information:
Activities and lessons do not have to written in lesson plan format and can be older activities from your archives, just send us the ideas and activities that have been successful with your kids!
Right now we're in the find and compile stage, so we'd love your help NOW, and on March 13 - which just so happens to be my 32nd birthday - we're going to have our big kick off! That's when we'll go "live" and begin posting all the lessons but for the first two weeks, on the week days, we'll be giving away a prize a day! So be sure to pop on by then to see the time saver learning activity kits we've put together to help you out that you can win, and please continue to pop on by after!
