Scholastic has launched a Learn at Home Hub to keep kids engaged while they’re home during the Coronavirus school closures.
There will be a total of 20 lessons released 5 at a time each week.
We’re working our way through the first week’s lessons and came across a lesson on how a professional domino builder (yep, that’s a thing) uses math to create domino art.
This resulted in us watching tons of YouTube videos on falling dominoes (oh the mess!)
G wanted more than anything to set up dominoes and knock them down. But we don’t have any.
No worries. He started building his own dominoes using LEGO bricks.
Now he can set up and knock down to his heart’s content. He was up to 62 dominoes when I made him go to bed. I’m sure he will get back at it in the morning.
How did your Day 1 of Quarantine go?

Kid’s can earn a FREE book this summer from Barnes and Noble for reading eight books from May 16 to September 5, 2017, with their Summer Reading Program!
Fill out the reading log and when it’s full (8 books read), take it to your local Barnes and Noble and pick a FREE book from the list of selected books.
Summer Reading Program is for Grades 1st-6th.
I always let G record 8 books from the library summer reading program into his Barnes and Noble reading log. Double duty!
Don’t forget that Homeschool Moms (and Dads) can sign up for the B&N Educator’s Discount Card!
We did the Pizza Hut Book It program two years ago and we started it this past year but then I did a TERRIBLE job of keeping up with it and we didn’t go past the first month. What a shame! I am going to do better for the upcoming year!

Not familiar with the Book It program? When you sign up you’ll receive a kit that will help you keep track of your child’s reading goals. When they have met the goal you can reward them with a certificate for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! (Drink purchase required) In your kit you will receive 6 free pizza certificates – one for every month from October to March. One certificate, per child, per month may be used.
