Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday End of September Edition…
If you have been following along you know that last week we took a break from Tea Time Tuesday because my nephew passed away. It has been a rough couple of days, but with the end of September approaching we are trying to get back into the swing of things. This week in math Jack is working on calendar activities, and has been struggling with how many days each month has. I figured it was the perfect time to bring out an old nursery rhyme for our featured poem this week. In addition to our featured poem, we also read all of our BookShark poems for this week.
Thirty Days Hath September by Mother Goose
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting leap year, that’s the time
When February’s days are twenty-nine.
This week Kenten helped Jack make sugar cookies. To make your own sugar cookies you will need:
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- powdered sugar (to sprinkle on top)
You can find the recipe here. This is a very easy recipe to follow. Kenten has made these cookies a few times over the last couple of weeks, and everyone loves them. I am so thankful that my sweet boy stepped in for me today so we could still have Tea Time Tuesday.
This week we had Tea Time Tuesday in our school room. You will notice that we did the bare minimum for preparations, but it was still nice to change our setting. I definitely see us using our school room for this more often.
