I'm always on the look out for creative people who can take something that is not thought of as fun or not traditionally geared towards younger kids, and then make it fun and gear it toward younger kids! That takes talent and creativity, which I love. A subject like chemistry is definitely not something you think of introducing to a 2nd or 3rd grader, or would consider it fun -is it? Let me share with you something that will totally change your mind!

The month of December is a busy month! It's so hard to fit everything in you want to. Thankfully, we were able to get together for a small celebration of God's goodness in putting together this group of women and children, that we call Wonderful Wednesdays! My daughter has been in the middle of long and late night rehearsals for a Christmas fundraiser play and I've been helping with costuming for it, so I didn't get too elaborate this year. However, we did eat a yummy breakfast together, do some fun games and make a neat little craft.

circulatory system a few weeks ago. We made our own t-shirts of our internal body organs/systems to tie up our last week of anatomy studies. We ended our day with a very fun review of the previous twelve weeks of memory work via a fast paced "acting out the memory work with props" game!

Wonderful Wednesday was all about the endocrine system today. The kids got the fright of their lives to start our day and then we ended our day with an Abraham Lincoln themed snack and review game, with fun learning in between. We had some special guests today too - always love when a Grandparent (or two!) can come join our day!

This week in Wonderful Wednesday we focused on the amazing Immune System! The kids dressed up as Vikings (a timeline event for this week) - which also fit with our end of the day activity of "fighting" germs! The kids loved the immune system attack activity of the day, it was a ton of fun!
