Prepositions List and Song

Hi friends! It was so fun to see some of you today at Old School Monday. Thank you, Lisa, for such a creative, memorable, FUN grammar lesson! I've never seen a cow do so many things to a box, or prepositions and articles make so many kids smile. I felt bad that we'd been in such a rush this morning and I hadn't realized the list of prepositions I handed out wasn't the one that went along with our song. So I am going to post our revised list here, below this video of Katie and Claire singing it a couple of years ago. It's not a perfect run-through . . . but maybe your kiddos will have fun looking for the little mistakes, and even be inspired to create their own video. Of course they can manipulate the list to fit any tune they like - that's part of the fun. Share your videos if you make them! We'd love to see. Thanks, all of you, for being part of our lives and our homeschooling journey.

Old School Mondays--TOMORROW and the rest of the semester!

Ok, Vintage Homeschool Moms, time to get out your calendars:

Here are the tentative dates for Old School Mondays and other Vintage Homeschool Days!

TOMORROW, January 27: our first Old School Monday for 2014! We have some fun things planned, including sharing time--so please encourage your child/ren to bring something to show or tell that they are learning here at the start of 2014. 

Friday, Feb. 14: our annual Valentine's Day party

Monday, Feb 24: Old School Monday

Monday, March 17: Old School Monday/St. Patrick's Day party

Friday, April 11: Old School Timeline Day

Monday, April 28: Old School Monday

Friday, May 23: End of School party

Unless we specify on special events, all of these gatherings will take place in the usual rooms there at Vintage Faith (downstairs in the Children's Ministry building) from 12-2:30. 

We have some other fun events still in the planning, but I will discuss this with you all tomorrow and then later here on the blog.  For all these events, I'll be sure to post any info you need to know in advance (usually about a week before).  Be sure to subscribe by email to the blog so you don't miss out on information!

I hope to see you all tomorrow!
