Unplug Your Kids: Sticky

We used Nature Bracelets on our last nature walk. Amir really enjoyed this. It was fun watching them experiment with what would stick and what didn't. They quickly realized that the heavier objects would not work. Who knew a piece of tape could be so much fun?


  1. So I take it, you are not taking the summer off from class?
    Are you doing learning as you go or are these formal lessons? (just curious)

  2. Well yes and no. We are continuing our regular routine through the summer but only 3 to 4 days a week. The other two days are movie day and library day. The summertime in Phoenix, to me, is comparable to winter in places that have real seasons. Basically you are stuck in the house because it's too hot to do anything! I'm focusing on only reading, penmanship and math this summer. Oddly enough, my children consider nature walks and the like as fun. Thank Allah! I plan to take a month off before we start our 1st grade curriculum in Sept. After that we will be on a year round schedule.
