  1. Twenty bead necklaces and two racquetballs. No, that is not what was found in the stomach of a shark. That is what Loverboy found inside his subwoofer when he opened it up. (It rattled as we re-organized our living room). Now I know what the toddler does to entertain herself when I'm teaching math to her older sister. :laugh: I swear I'm going to suggest this on the next thread that someone asks how to keep toddlers happy while teaching olders. "Just get a box of bead necklaces and some balls. Position them near Daddy's stereo speakers. They'll figure it out!" :laugh:
  2. Hello all, From now until Mother's Day, we're discounting our book of honest-poetry-for-mothers-of-small-children, "What it Is is Beautiful," down to $4.99 on our webstore. This book makes a wonderful gift for a young mother. It's not poetry about sunsets and flowers (mostly). It's about minivans and cracker-crumbs and secretly wishing your family was like the shiny families in commercials. Readers describe it like this: "Her poetry is not the kind of poetry that is hard to understand or tries to be too smart for its own good - instead, it's full of relatable language and common experiences to which every parent reading will be able to nod in agreement, or chuckle, or weep with gratitude that someone else has been through what you're going through." "Tender, funny, life-giving." "Her poems are so accessible and relatable, and they read like a shot of pure grace." Find out more, read samples, and order the book here.
  3. Update in post 64. If you have a toddler at your house about once a year, how toddler-proof do you make it? Obviously you remove precious/dangerous items from toddler level. But do you make it so that the child can have free rein throughout or so that he needs supervision at all times? Or make one area completely safe? Laura
  4. Hi, As my topic shows we are going in to the 9th grade and I find Well Trained Mind forums and threads to be so helpful. I need to find how to keep our 2 year old occupied. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have guardianship of our two year old grandson after our adult daughter became disabled and was unable to care for him. We have a daughter starting 9th grade already having to make some changes to our curriculum after reviewing the books and teacher editions. We live in a very rural area and I have found Pearson Oasis helpful in getting texts with teacher's editions. Also, using the internet to gather resources and looking at the Heart of Dakota for Revival to Revolutions as well. As of yet, I have searched and looked for help with the above. Yes, my husband is very helpful and looks after our g-son. Just wondering if anyone have any suggestions how to plan our time to get all of hours in for high school credit yet not get distracted by the little guy... We had wanted to do one year adventure novel but now looking at a regular literature, writing and grammar instead... I am becoming overwhelmed... Need time out...:chillpill: Char
  5. I've checked the other toddler threads and can't find what I'm looking for. I just started doing full school with my K'er today and that left my 2.5yo high and dry for a playmate. This little guy is fabulous about playing on his own but I can't handle the aftermath. He's a walking tornado. So...can anyone suggest some activities for him that don't require me to help him with but will keep him occupied for more than 5 mins? We have pattern blocks and he likes those but he needs some variety. We also have a myriad of buiding toys but I need something new that is special for school. I like the look of MFW's toddler package but wanted to know if there was anything else great out there. I am not interested in workbooks or anything that requires coloring. He is an active little boy and none of that would work.
  6. Hope y'all don't mind a visitor dropping in to ask advice... I have a young son with a seemingly excellent visual memory. The first time my husband told me he'd pointed to a word on a sign and read it I thought he must've been mistaken. We've done nothing "academic" with him whatsoever beyond occasionally singing the ABCs. Now, though, I've seen it for myself, and it's starting to happen regularly. And I'm wondering what, if anything, I should do about it. I know he's just recognizing the shapes of words since they're always ones he's been exposed to through books. I'd much rather he learn proper phonics, but if he weren't already figuring it out on his own I'd probably be inclined to delay teaching him for quite awhile. Questions for those who have been there, done that: - Should I even try to teach him? Or should I just let him keep doing his thing? It occurs to me that reading phonetically requires a completely different skill set than reading by sight, and I don't want to frustrate him if he's not ready. He does tend to pick things up quickly, though, and my instinct says if he can learn animal sounds he can learn letter sounds, too. - Does anyone have experience teaching letter sounds to a kid who can't even pronounce half of them yet? Would that just be asking for trouble? He's still in that stage where he requires a translator when talking to anyone who doesn't see him regularly. - Any winning strategies for working with a very energetic little guy who's nowhere near ready to sit still and have a lesson? Even when we read books he's constantly jumping up to act out the story, so if we did anything I'd want to keep it light and fun. - On the other hand, what if I were to just let him be? What problems would I need to look for down the road in a kid who's teaching himself to read by sight? - Might it be possible to go back and teach him phonics later, once he's at least ready to sit still? He's still too young for me to discern whether he'll be the type who likes to understand the logic behind the things he already knows. I'm concerned about him possibly developing bad habits and then not wanting to go back and learn the basics, if that makes any sense. Thanks for any advice! I would love to hear all perspectives.
  7. For those of you with very young children, or those of us expecting nieces and nephews or grandchildren, this looks very cool. One of my brothers' wives is pregnant, and this is what I plan to get them as of the last few minutes since I learned of this. It's phthalate & BPA free, too. For those who are interested, it's made in the USA.
  8. I have 3 dc I am trying to HS(8yo dd, 7yodd, and 5yods) Since they are all still quite young they need a lot my attention. But I can't seem to keep my twin boys busy! Everytime I put them down they scream because they want to be right in the middle of everything (I usually put them in FR with an older child). Or they are fighting over the same toys. I have certain toys that I keep for just school time, but it's not working anymore. I have even tried highchair activities, but that's not working either. Any ideas??:confused: Thanks Jenny
  9. I am trying to figure out what to do with my toddler during homeschooling. She's almost 2 and right now her bedroom is right next to the school room. She has A LOT of toys in her bedroom to keep her occupied, and she wanders through the room throughout the day. I have her things on a low shelf in the school room for her to do "school work" and play. She has been quite content playing and keeping herself busy most of the time. She brings me board books and I read them to her. I take short breaks and play tea time with her. But she's becoming more demanding of my time. She's starting throwing full out fits when I don't pick her up right that second. It is really beginning to interfere with hs'ing my other two--who also require my full attention. What do you do with your toddlers when hs'ing? Your ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated, A.
