Movie Making 101

Malachi is 8, soon to be nine and he is so excited. Well, soon being August and I don’t know what is special about nine, but he is looking forward to it. That wasn’t what I wanted to talk about today though. Malachi loves army men, knights and castles, and Star Wars. He got some Star Wars Lego for Christmas and he has carted it around the house in a small bucket just about everyday. If he is not playing with a bucket full of Lego he is setting up a battle scene with his army men, but that is …

Tech Tuesday – Something New For You

I mentioned before how we use the iPad for learning our memory verses. That method works well for us, but we are also working on a series of animations. Which you have seen previewed here before. We have been working hard on a fun site for our kids to view all of the bible verse animations that we are making and we wanted to share a sneak peek of it with you.

Here are some of the Apps that we already have that could be used to help with speech therapy: Drawing Pad ($1.99) Preschool Island ($0.99) Stickers! …

Tech Tuesday – Introducing The Periodic Table

In our science lesson yesterday we did a short introduction to the periodic table. We had a nice and colorful periodic table in our book and I was able to print one out from here – simple black and white periodic table – for their notebooks. I thought it would be fun to take a little detour from our book (Our Planet Earth) and visit two sites that will tell us a little more about the periodic table in interesting ways. Visual Periodic Table Periodic Table Of Videos And play some games that I made for The Beehive (they are all …

Tech Tuesday

Welcome back to Tech Tuesday. Today I wanted to share about one of the ways we use our iPad. Jonah has been making these wonderful Lighthouse Memory Club animations for the kids and we have all been learning our memory verses. You will be hearing more about the Lighthouse Memory Club as time goes on, but today I just want to show you this PDF that we use. We wanted a quick and easy way to review our memory verses every morning, so Jonah set to work and came up with a nice little PDF that we can use on …

Tech Tuesday

I apologize for not getting a post up for Tech Tuesday yesterday, but life has been a wee bit crazy around here since my son’s trip to the ER on Sunday (post about that coming soon).
