More Sharp Academy and Sharp Home Ongoings

My Prince.

My Prince reading about the body; this is just prior to standing on his head and eating blueberries :)

Did  tell you about this generous homeschool mommy that gave us brand-new AMAZING school stuff! Our loot included games, books and TONS AND I MEAN TONS of manipulatives and other FANTASTIC tools! This is an ordinal game.

It's  high rise with the various floors labeled; first, second, etc.

Pick a card and mark your floor :)

Telling his "mommy-teacher"...something

Mr. Humble drew the winning floor.

This is the excitement while playing a simple, yet fun, counting tic-tac-toe game

YES!!!! This is one of our amazing presents!

Someone is getting's almost balanced.

An up close look.

YEP, my Prince gets excited about balancing :) Check out his hair; he is jumping! The way took the picture, it doesn't really looked balanced..who cares?! It's about fun and learning.
The "boy style creation by the Prince and his daddy.

Over the his momma!

Cool, like his daddy.


YEP, another cool gift! This is a magnetic dry erase board that comes with pictures and letters!

I placed various pictures and the Prince wrote the names.

VIOLA! Spelling and writing lesson, complete!

Today, the Prince requested to review all of our body lessons....seriously there were about 7 books (including everythng from body system to nutrition) that we reviewed; in addition to his lapbook (in his hand) and our white board notes. He was so determined that he brought all of the books, his lapbook and his white erase board into the kitchen so we could use the large kitchen table and have room :)....It's a good thing that Thunder Love is obsessed with this lil' boy or she would probably run-a-way.

The Prince does addition in many different ways; today we watched The Kahn Academy short teaching video on addition and the Prince wanted to use a number line like the instructor.

He sent this one to his Nana :)

Yep, the Prince has chores. Initially he didn't have so many, but he, yes,HE, kept adding chores. Our motto is that our family must work together to keep our home healthy and happy. He has no clue that some kiddos get cash or rewards; it's just what is expected in our home; we all must work together.....and YES, one day I will fold the piles of laundry...ughh!

Now that look at this, I realize he added a couple more. He does his chores most days with no problems and minimal prompting, some days I do some for him and then there are the other days....he's only 4 :)

A happy chore day :)

 I know that one day his significant other will talk about the Prince's crazy mother, but I also know that when he kicks her to the curb for talkin' bout his momma, he will be fully self-sufficient...haahahahahhaha!
