The Walnut Acre Daily - Bird Theme Size Sorting Mats and More

Words to Live By

For this is the message we heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 1 John 3:11

Preschool and Kindergarten Homeschool Fun


We began our morning with prayer, reviewing our memory verse, and singing this month's theme song. We continued with this weeks theme - God's promises - by watching and singing along with Every Promise in the Book is Mine and then watched God's Rainbow Promise.

Phonics and Reading

We did the Starfall letter Ll lesson and the kids completed the Ll writing worksheet.

Then we worked on "am" and "ag" word sorts.


We exercised our way to 100 with this video Let's Get Fit Count to 100. We've been using this video a lot and the kids love it. 

This fun Size Sorting Bird Activity was a big hit with the kids. Once again, I laminated these mats so we'll be using them over and over. 

Wild Bird Unit

We read Petal the Owl Colours

and the kids colored these  Color the Bird  booklets.

We also watched this  Bird Life Cycle Video for Kids.

Austin and Amanda's Homeschool Assignments 

Bible - Proverbs 27; Literature - No Woman So Fair; Math - Place Value Part 2; Science - Respiratory System Structure and Function

In the Kitchen

Breakfast - Cereal w/Milk, Juice

Lunch - Today was Amanda's day to make lunch and she served cheese pizza, fries and mixed vegetables. 

Dinner - I made a Broccoli Chicken Casserole and chocolate pie this morning to have for dinner this evening. We also served butter bread. I needed something I could make ahead of time because this is the evening Amanda and I go to the SPCA so she can work with the animals. 

Around the House

I cleaned up the kitchen after breakfast, did some laundry and did some cleaning and organizing in the mudroom.

Austin cleaned up the kitchen after lunch and dinner and did the evening cleanup in the living room and playroom, and took care of our outside dog and the chickens.

Amanda cleaned the guinea pig's cage, took care of the cats and our inside dog, did some laundry and did the evening cleanup in the mudroom and downstairs bathroom.

Little Red looks like she's not sure what happened here. Amanda took this picture while she was cleaning her cage. 

Out and About

Amanda and I went for our usual afternoon at the SPCA. She loved this cat named Sweetie Pie. 

And she worked some more with Jenny the Pit Bull. She's sweet but a little rambunctious. Amanda is working on teaching her to follow a few simple commands like Sit and Wait.

Just Having Fun Together

Our coffee maker bit the dust today so Doug and Austin took it apart to see if they could find out what happened to it. I don't know if they figured it out but they sure had fun trying. Then Doug went to Walmart and bought a new one and came home and fixed me a pot of coffee. I'm not spoiled at all, am I?

  1. That was so nice of your hubby to make you coffee. I like how he tried to fix it first. I was just telling my daughter how they didn't need to worry about things like that when my grampa was young. They used percolators. Hah. Don't worry about the electric going on on those.
