After School Linky Party! (6/3)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

If you missed last week's linky, you missed a lot.
The ideas for summer learning provided both organization and inspiration!
Here are just a handful of my favorites.

Pony Bead Sun Catcher by School Time Snippets.
(Creative kids will love turning beads into sun catchers.
And you could even make this a states of matter lesson for science-lovin' boys and girls!)

How Baking Can Be Summer Reading, Writing, & Math Practice!
(As this blogger proves, the way into a kid's brain may very well be through their
stomach! These ideas are SO smart and the recipes look equally delicious.)

Math Games with Sports Cards from The Pleasantest Thing.
(Who knew these cards could be used for learning math? Not I.
Thankfully, Carolyn at The Pleasantest Thing does.)

Whole Body Math Learning: Stomp It! Place Value Game at Creekside Learning.
(Kinesthetic learners will love this place value game. Who am I kidding? I love it, too!)

Paper Helicopters at Strong Start.
(Kids love simple ideas and caregivers love minimal prep activities.
This activity meets both criteria.
These would be perfect for a discussion about maple "helicopter" seeds too!)

Summer Reading Challenge: Can You Read 100 Books at The Measured Mom.
(Summer reading can be a REAL drag for kids. Make it fun with this Summer Reading Challenge. The printable checklist will have kids reading here, there, and well ... everywhere!)
