May is another busy month in our household!
This month each of the kids will be attending their school field trip, and since I'll be going along, that'll be our "field trip" for the month. R's class will be headed to Living History Farms, while A's class will be heading to the Science Center of Iowa - two of my favorite Des Moines area attractions!
For our learning, we'll be using a great site called DIY.org where kids can earn badges for new learning that they do. We'll do one this month to test it out, and actually continue the adventure in June as I ask them to earn one badge per week. DIY.org is a great page that allows kids to share their learning, and even runs on an app from their mobile device.
Finally, our making and service will be with Operation Gratitude. We'll be writing letters and creating art work for service members to be sent to our troops over seas!
