    Not so Trivial Pursuit

    Monday, April 28th, 2014

    As a homeschool mom I am always looking for an easier way to teach my boys.

    If they have no clue they are learning, even better!

    Not so Trivial Pursuit ~Danielle Huddleston PhotographyI picked up three sets of Professor Noggin’s Card Games at Hobby Lobby and knew right away I wanted to use them with our Trivial Pursuit Game.

    When I went to get the game I realized we have three versions of Trivial Pursuit.

    Why?

    I have no clue…

    Not so Trivial Pursuit ~Danielle Huddleston PhotographyI decided to go ahead and just use the three colors our cards were to make things easier.

    So to win you needed to get two orange(science), two pink(Human Body), and two blue(Presidents).

    cardsI asked them the easy questions and they asked me the hard questions.

    They smoked me…

    reading3I found out right away that my knowledge of US Presidents is lacking.

    reading2My boys did amazing in the the science and human body catagories!

    I kept saying, “Wow! Who is their teacher? She is amazing!” to my husband.

    playIt went so well that I am going to pick up a few more card sets to add to our game.

    readingMy youngest kept bouncing up and down as we played.

    He does this for any game(even cards) but I am going to take it as a sign he liked it.

    happyboyGuess who won?

    winnerHe got inside with all of his pieces first.

    To win you get all the pieces, get in the middle, and then answer a question from any category.

    Do you have a trivial pursuit game lying around(or three)?

    This is a great way to have fun while learning!

    Will Rogers

    Monday, July 23rd, 2012

    Last week the boys and I traveled up to the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch in Oologah, Ok.

    My five year old was over the top excited to see this place.

    It all started with this Value Tales book.

    In it is a short story about Will Rogers told from the point of view of his lariat!

    He was a little confused later though when he saw one of his lariats and it did not have eyes…

    Beautiful house.

    Amazing view!

    They had animals roaming around the grounds.

    Caught you!

    After we were done at the Ranch my oldest wanted to see more about him so we headed over to Claremore to the Will Rogers Memorial Museum.

    He was so excited to see pictures and statues of Will Rogers everywhere!

    There was even a cowboy that would do rope tricks for you if you asked!

    I could not resist the trick rope in the museum store.

    He has already been asking to go back.

    I love it when a book sparks a desire to learn!
