Weekends with the Wigglesworths: Weekend Teaching and Learning



Happy Saturday! This week has been a whirlwind at Wigglesworth Manor. The girls have been sick, Matt's been sick, and I feel sick of all the sick. The weekend's here, so that's a good thing. The plan is to spend the next 48 hours trying to recuperate. Well, actually, that's my dream, but since we have kids....


Today's actual goal is to get over to the library and return the videos we borrowed last week. Then, I'm taking a break from the library, or at least the video section. The girls still have some books(that we just renewed online because we forgot about them) that will need to be returned in the beginning of March. 

Not play-dough, but another great mixing activity the girls and their cousins got to do with Auntie Lindsay last weekend- SLIME!

After the library, I need to stop somewhere to pick up some containters (probably Big Lots, since it's right down the road) because we'll be making some homemade play-dough. I just made some for R's class last week and I'm kind of obsessed with how easy it is and how good it smells (I used Kool-Aid). I'm kicking myself for not trying to make it sooner, but better late than never, right? At least it'll be a fun lesson for the girls and they'll have something to play with for a while after it's made.

I'm also hoping to sneak in some learning of my own. 2 Christmases ago, Matt gifted me an amazing camera. I still have no real idea how to use it. I've taken pictures with it, but there are so many options to play around with, I get completely overwhelmed. Yesterday I seemed to make some headway with it, so I'm hoping that I can find some brief (and FREE) online tutorials to help me become a little more at ease with it. 

What kinds of teaching and/or learning will you be doing this weekend? We'd love to hear about it, so be sure to leave a comment!
