Free Printable Bear Fact Valentines

LittleMan and I were at the shop recently and looking at his options for the upcoming homeschool Valentine exchange when it dawned upon us that it had all been done before. Ninja turtles, Star Wars, all of it. And while he loves his fandoms, LittleMan really wanted something to reflect his love of science. So I offered to help him make some that showcased his interests.

And so, with LittleMan’s help, today is day four of a 14 day series of Free Printable Valentines for Science Geeks. Today’s Valentine is all about bears!

STEM Saturday: Free Printable Number Pattern Pages

LittleMan has been flying through the math work this year; mastered double digit addition and subtraction, addition and subtraction of negative numbers, started addition and subtraction of fractions, and even memorized a large portion of the multiplication tables. Try as I might to slow him down and have him practice what he’s learned, LittleMan gets bored of reviewing the basics after he feels he grasps them well enough to move on.

Now I’m not usually a fan of worksheet math, preferring to give more hands-on “real world” opportunities to practice what he’s learned. That said, I found that it saved a lot of time and headaches to hand LittleMan some basic worksheets that highlight the patterns in the math facts he’s learned already.

Each worksheet focuses on one number (0-12) and includes basic addition, subtraction, negative numbers, and multiplication. I wouldn’t advise these worksheets for a child who is still learning these skills, but as a review tool, they are quick and convenient.

Free Printable Camouflage Lesson and Activity

One thing we’ve noticed when we take our nature walks is that we must help our children learn where to look for wildlife and also teach them to look at the small details.

It is easy for a small child to miss the brown moth resting against the brown bark of a tree while they rush past it in their excitement to be outside on a nature walk.

If you plan on spending a lot of time outside this summer then one of the first things you should teach your children is how to stay safe.

What safety means is different depending on where you live but in general you want to make sure they know which local wildlife to avoid, how to observe from afar, how to back away if they come across something unsafe, etc..

Gross Motor Super Hero Activities for Parties or Homeschool Gym Days

We are members of a couple different local homeschool groups. One of our groups meets monthly for “gym day” which is basically just a time when the children can run off some energy with their peers in a safe, enclosed area. Of course free play is encouraged on gym days but we also supply activities to entertain the children. Because gym days are a monthly event, we try to keep supplies and prep time to a minimum. This month’s theme was super hero.
