Gallon man project

Soooo we have been doing Math-u-See for 2 years now. This year we are on the Delta book!
It is introducing alot of concepts that require him to memorize. Such as area, cups, gallons, miles, yards, and feet. The gallons, cups, pints and such have given him a bit of a fit. He has
a bit of trouble keeping things in his mind like this. But I remember a while back I had come across a teacher's blog or website that had mentioned her class making a "gallon man" so I went on a search and found a printable one! You can find it here if you want the pdf of it. I did edit it so that I didn't use color ink to print it. I printed it on construction paper and card stock. He enjoyed putting it together and now he has a visual aid to remind him.

Watercolor painting and "sunnyday"

Yesterday I stumbled across a blog with watercolor lessons.
I thought that would be a good addition to our homeschooling
(and add a little something fun for my son). So of course I lost
the blog link! But I started googling and found THIS link instead.
It inspired me and the kiddos to try our hand at it!

Quickdrawl's artwork

My son is off to a good start!

This is my attempt.

Quickdrawl has a very unique way of telling whether it is day
or night time. The funny thing is she knew what it was way
before I knew she knew! Shes been saying sunnytime or
moontime for weeks when I finally caught on to what she is
saying. So sunnytime is daylight and moontime is nighttime!
Smart girl!
