Math Game With Dice!

I totally love this new game for Henry!  He’s in first grade but has always been a little advanced in math (it’s logical)!  So I would say it’s on a first to second grade level. You need: 3 dice. You need the worksheet!  I grabbed one from a teacher friend — I’ll have to upload it to my site so…

Up, Up, Up and Away!

From caterpillar… …to chrysalis… …to butterfly… Henry’s class unleashes the amazing butterflies today!       And Henry’s “Bilfo” was the FIRST TO COME OUT OF ITS CHRYSALIS!   Asking questions about the butterfly release….  Students are a little sad to see them go, but they understand these guys belong out in nature! We walk down to the school garden… bodies…

Cute Blunders

Henry came home from school yesterday (March 2) and said, “MOM!  IT’S SOMEONE’S BIRTHDAY TODAY!”  (he really loves all birthdays)!  He must think it is amazing that a person switches ages on that special day); and he loves numbers!   So I said, “Who’s birthday is it?” Henry, “MOTHER GOOSE!” ME, “DO YOU MEAN DR. SEUSS?” HENRY, “OH YEAH.”  …

In TRAINING

Aren’t NYC subways the coolest? When we first moved here — Henry was a little reluctant to ride.  Then after experiencing the thrill — he would beg me to take him on the subway everyday!  He has always loved trains!  So we rode the train to nowhere  over, and over, and over.  UGGGGGGGGGG.  I kept thinking if he had his…

Our New Pet: Louie

  Louie — our cat — is still Henry’s favorite. He just can’t get enough of this cat!  In fact — we have to be vigilant because Henry gets a little too crazy with Louie.  This fantastic feline is like a drug, and after about ten pets, and a butt scratch Henry loses his mind.  I constantly praise all of the…

Family Day at School

Henry’s school here in Las Vegas is wonderful!  Once a month they provide parents the opportunity to come into the classroom for “Family Day”.  We drive Henry in for the 10 AM start, participate in a number of thoughtfully planned out activities, then take Henry home around 11:00 AM. It is a great way to mingle with the other parents,…
