It has been a while! My Thanksgiving page has been out of order for a long time, so I am finally finding time to fix it. Below are the notebooking pages. Further down, you will find links to my other Thanksgiving related pages.


Thanksgiving
Maude M. Grant

The Pilgrims were good people.
They lived in England.
The Pilgrims liked to go to church.
Their king was not kind to them.
He would not let them go to their own church.
So they left England and went to Holland.

The Pilgrims lived in Holland.
They lived there for twelve years.
They saw the wind-mills. .
The wind-mills grind the corn.
The wind-mills pump the water.
The Dutch people live in Holland.
The Dutch boys and girls wear wooden shoes.
The Dutch people were kind to the Pilgrims.

The Pilgrims did not wish to live in Holland always.
They wanted a land of their own.
So they sailed across the sea.
The name of their boat was the Mayflower.
It was not a large boat.
The great green waves tossed the Mayflower about.
The Pilgrims sailed a long time over the sea.

The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth.
It was winter and very cold.
There were no houses.
The Pilgrims went into the woods.
They cut down trees and made log houses.
They made a church and a schoolhouse.

The Pilgrims met the Indians.
The Indians were kind to them.
They taught them how to hunt.
They taught them how to fish.
The Indians gave corn to the Pilgrims.
They showed them how to make corn bread.

The Pilgrims had to work very hard.
The winter was very long and cold.
The Pilgrims lived in log houses.
These houses were not warm.
Food was very scarce.
Sometimes the Pilgrims did not have enough to eat.

After awhile the Pilgrims did not have so hard a time.
Their corn and vegetables grew and they had a fine harvest.
They caught wild turkeys in the woods.
Soon their barns were full.
They said, "Let us have a day of Thanskgiving.
Let us thank God for His blessings."
So they had the first Thanksgiving Day.

Hey everyone! It has been a long while.

Today I wanted to share MaryEllen's entry for the Doodle4Google Contest. She wasn't one of the chosen, but I am too proud not to share. 🙂

She has begun to use the computer with her drawing. We finally set her up with her own desk and computer. She did this all digitally, one of her first projects.

Doodle4Google Entry

Here is a snippet from what she wrote on the entry form. "Drawing is something that I love to do, and I basically taught myself how. I also like to read fantasy and sci-fi books."

I think she did an excellent job. I am encouraging her to start her own blog, maybe as a summer project.

Hope y'all are doing fine. I will post again soon.

Blessings,

Lymphatic and Immune System Notebooking Pages
Wow, it has been ten months since I blogged last. I am peeking in today to put up another set of notebooking pages that I have sitting on my hard drive. I believe I have two more sets after this to put up.

This set is for the lymphatic and immune systems. If using Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology, this would be for chapter 13.

Integumentary System Notebooking Pages

Believe it or not, I still have a few more anatomy notebooking sets that I haven't shared. The integumentary system is one of them. Again, I created these to to along with Exploring Creation with Anatomy.

Here are some questions, taken from an old book, to think about as you do your study on the integumentary system.

  1. Give a brief description of the skin.
  2. What is its structure?
  3. How does the skin protect the body?
  4. What is the structure of the epidermis?
  5. What causes a blister?
  6. What gives the skin its color?
  7. How are the nails formed? The hair?
  8. What are the uses of the hair and nails? How do they grow?
  9. How does the cuticle protect the cutis?
  10. Describe the perspiratory glands.
  11. Of what use is perspiration?
  12. How do we take cold, and what can be done to prevent it?
  13. What can you say of the nerves of the skin?
  14. Why is bathing necessary?

 

EXPERIMENTS ON THE SKIN

1. The hair, nails, and bits of cuticle and scarf-skin may be examined with a microscope.

2. A magnifying-glass should be used in the examination of the skin itself.
The perspiration-pores may be best seen in the palms of the hands.

MaryEllen and Donnie are always making paper dolls of their favorite characters. I have meant time and again to share some of their creations, but just haven't got around to it.

The other day, yesterday in fact, I noticed this new one. I asked about it and was told that MaryEllen had just made it the day before. I loved the doll's accessories and decided to finally share.

I am told this is Artemis from the Young Justice series. I am not sure exactly what this series is about besides fighting bad guys.

Artemis Paper Doll

The kids draw and color the doll. After they apply packing tape and then they cut them out.

Artemis Paper Doll

The detail is what I was most impressed with and the cute accessories, the bow and arrows that fit into the quiver.

Artemis Paper Doll

They originally began creating these paper dolls when they wanted to buy the toy, but didn't have the money or didn't want to spend the money. They take a lot of time and they don't just make one, they make the whole gang.

I think they are working on the Young Justice series right now, but they have done the entire clan of How To Train Your Dragon, including the dragons, and The X-Men.

MaryEllen's Drawings

I thought I would share a little of what MaryEllen is drawing these days.

MaryEllen practically draws 24/7. I bet she even draws in her dreams. lol! She draws during story hour, she draws in the car, she draws while watching a movie (Except in the theater, although she has mentioned if she could find a way to, she would.), she draws during her free time, she draws at the coffee shop, at the doctor's office, during visits to see grandma, pretty much 24/7.

She is improving a lot on the art of drawing people. Now, I am no artist, but these are wonderful.

~You can click on these photos to make them larger.~

This first one is of Sundance, our kitty. She was drawing her while Sundance was lying on the bookshelf. My husband, Don, didn't know and went to pet Sundance which caused her to move, so MaryEllen didn't get her other paw.

Here is Loki. I believe her favorite Marvel movies are the Thors. Loki is her favorite villain.
Loki - ©MaryEllen Albright

Loki again.

Here she made Loki as if he were a cat. I think she calls it humanizing.
Loki as a cat - ©MaryEllen Albright

Brotherly love. Loki and Thor in an embrace. They are also humanized as cats.

Thor, her favorite Marvel character.

This one is of Raven from Teen Titans.

Night Crawler is one of her favorite characters from The X-Men.

There are her own creations of super-heroes I guess you would call them.

It is fun to watch her draw, the movement of her hand and arm, and seeing the shapes from an image. Pretty neato! The amazing thing is she draws these from memory, the detail and all. Granted, the characters look young, but I am sure with more practice, they will soon grow older. lol! She definitely has the determination and patience.

Blessings,

February Math Word Problems - 3rd Grade

I am a little late with the valentines. Actually, I didn't plan on making anything, but I was thinking it has been a while since I uploaded a freebie, so I decided on more math word problems which happened to be valentines day related, not all, but some. (Let's see how many commas I can add to that sentence!!) 😉

Now, I retrieved these problems from an old book, so the cost of supplies are in the cents, don't we wish eh? I didn't want to change the amounts as it is sorta fun to look at what things cost back when.

This is geared for the 3rd grade, but you can be the judge with your children's skill level.

It also includes a space to work out the problem and to draw a little something such as hearts, flags, etc., whatever the problem is talking about. This is great for the little artists in your family, the ones who enjoy drawing, but it can be used without drawing anything also.

I hope your children enjoy these math word problems.

Blessings,
cynthia
