This is how I get sweet boy to go to nap while working with the kids. There is just no time to sit and nurse/rock quietly. It is NOT going to happen. So, I've learned to nurse and put him in here after nursing. He goes to sleep and then I take him out and put him in his crib!! Walking around in this hotsling puts him right to sleep. I also have to say that this is the easiest baby carrying contraption I have found. I tried the Bjorn (I'm not that coordinated), Ring Sling(too many parts) and the Warp (oh my, not sure I can do that)!! I did not even have to read directions on how to use this. I just looked at the picture and there!!
Five Kingdoms Presentation. For this presentation I checked out a book at the library to read about the Five Kingdoms. The more I know the more confident I feel talking about these. I gave the presentation once and reviewed on another day. I downloaded this work from here. I put color dots on the back for control.
United Sates Puzzle. Both kids did this map separately. My son did NOT want to work with Bella. This caused an ugly meltdown and me loosing my temper.
Stamp Game. Sweet boy lets his sister give him the units, tens, hundreds and thousands he needs! It works out great.
Writing with the moveable alphabet. I ask him to do this work. Do not think for a minute he picks it out on his own!
Coffee grinding. They love this work and since I need the coffee grounded it works wonderfully for all of us!
