StrawBerry Shortcake- Guess Who?!

Here is our first game...

It is played just as the family favorite, Guess Who. We Laminated our and used either Bingo Chips or dry erase markers to mark off the characters. Lady Jey enjoys this game and has learned properly the process of elimination and has brought this skill over to other areas in her schooling. I hope one of you out there enjoys this game as much as we have!

Please remember that if you do donate for the link that you NOT share the link with anyone else, the materials are for your personal use only! Do not post them as your own if you do blog about them please link back to our site here. Thanks!

Games Anyone?

     I have been working diligently on pre-school pacs for my daughter, yes I am aware that there are many already created out there for the taking, but she learns better and I can keep her attention longer when the themes are something she likes. So where I could not find something to her liking I have been creating. She also LOVES to play games so I have created a few learning games to go along with "our pacs". She is loving these so I thought I would share with others.
   These games have taken me longer to get together so I am asking for a little donation to get these. Once you place the donation I will send you a link to download the games. You will have 7 days to do so, so please make sure you download within the 7 days. (check your spam box if you have not received the link within 2 days). I ask for only a little donation, but I also ask that you not share this link with anyone,  And that the materials only be used for your personal use, if by chance you (personally) need more boards then what is provided then you may copy off more for yourself.
Please include in the donation email, which game you would like or if you forget please email me with the game of choice. THANKS
I will not provide a second link, so please save the file to your computer and laminate for durability.
Thanks again for allowing us to be a part of your day here at Our Days at CA!

Following My Path with Route 66

     Well I have recently (about a month ago) volunteered to teach one of our Sunday night youth classes (grade 2-3). Although I already teach Sunday Mourning 4-6th class, I knew this was going to be a big undertaking, because unlike Sunday morning I had/have to come up with my own lessons. After much prayer and indecision, I found what I would consider a goal mind, Thanks to GOD of course! 
     The curriculum I found was just what I wanted; it combines the books of the Bible with stories from each book. I myself growing up in church was introduced to the fundamental “Bible Stories” which seems many have gotten away from. And from experience, with my husband who learned NONE of those stories, I have come to realize these stories are important! Without these stories I would have learned nothing of the Bible, but thanks to them I know the background of the scripture. I thought this important to teach “my kids” as well as learning where each book of the Bible is. So the GREAT curriculum I found was Route 66.

This book goes through all 66 books of the Bible, teaching along the way the stories from each book.
       With the curriculum the kids make a “scrap-book”  and keep a map for each stop. The activities within the book are not just written assignments but hands on things, such as a Passover supper you share with the children that represents the feast within the Bible.

      We have gotten to Genesis and have learned about the creation, the flood, the covenant with Abraham, and the story of Isaac and Abraham. The kids, (right now all I have are girls) have even asked on off nights if they could do their folders “scrap-books” So I guess if they are asking for it they are enjoying it!
      I know I am enjoying it, not just the book, but the chance to be a part of their lives. It is truly a blessing to know once they accept Christ that you had a small part of that! Or even if they have already taken that step, you as a teacher have a hand in getting them ready to be self confident enough to share their beliefs with others!

     So it was my prayer, through following My path God has set out in front of me, that I found this curriculum, that through its teaching the children will establish the foundation they need to do just as God has commanded us to do in, Matthew 28:19, and TELL!
      I hope also to use this curriculum when finished, with mine own children as I teach them the stories here at home at our days at CA.

Our recipes

     I decided to post these here not necessarily to share but so that I can find them!
     Some are borrowed, some are handed down, and some are tweaked to satisfy our likings. Some are my favorite restaurant recipes from the web, because we can’t afford to eat at them every weekend ;)
     I have some that will not eat without having meat, and some that don’t like anything green!
I have some who would rather not have meat (ME) and all do not eat meat on the bone! 
I have some who eat only one meal a day and some who eat ALL day. 
Some are Cajun recipes that I grew up on, some are Mexican recipes (tweaked) that my husband grew up on, some are “country cooking” because we live in Tennessee, and some or Italian because it is my favorite!
     So by now you may have guessed that our menus have a variety of meals!  I hope someone out there can enjoy them. If any question about a recipe leave a commit! I will try to post all the recipes I use monthly, here at Our Days at CA!

B for Bird

     I was not anticipating this collection, it just came to me. As you might know we will be starting Apologia Science for our summer quarter (I gave the kids another week off, to get things ready). I decided to start with Zoo 1, which for those who know is centered around flying creatures. I decided to break it in half, doing the first half, birds and bats, during this summer, and the second half, bugs, during next summer. This will give us a break with the Apologia text, in which we will fill in with MFW science.
     So I decided what better way to include Lady Jey in the studies but with her own bird unit! So here it is...                                 

Remember if you use this collection and have a blog please blog about it and link it up here. As we use it I will blog about it.  Thanks for reading and joining us here at our days at CA

               Coming soon: S for Strawberry "shortcake" Fruits
