School is in Session

I thought I'd share a little peek into our school day - - here you see the younger kids hard at work on their Math assignments. Math is usually the first subject of the day. It's everyone's favorite, and important to get a lesson in each day, so it's a great way to get us going in the mornings.

Even little Bekah has her own schoolwork. I created this little game in a file folder. We call it 'Cupcake Counting'. She has colorful cupcakes lined up inside of a file folder, each numbered from 1 to 10. There is a little pocket that holds colorful sprinkles (I used a balloon-shaped paper punch to create these) and Bekah's assignment is to place the appropriate number of 'sprinkles' on each cupcake. To change things up a bit, sometimes we 'color-code' them to get in a lesson in colors as well as counting.

And, yes, the bunny ears definitely improve brain power!!!


  1. Oh, I'm so glad you posted! I love to see how others work on lessons. I sometimes wish I could be a "fly on the wall" just to see how things work in other's homes. The cupcake folder is fantastic! I think I may use that idea for Zuzu. Thanks for sharing!

  2. HI Tracy :)
    It would be fun to get a first hand peek into each others' school rooms, wouldn't it?
    Bekah loves her file folder games -- counting, matching, sequencing -- I'll have to post pics of the others I've made.
    Blessings to you all!
