Welcome to the AfterSchool Linky Party! 
The Educators' Spin On It is the host for this week, joined by these other co-hosts:

Well, we didn't do too much after schooling this week as I was sick.  I finally gave in and saw the doctor for a sinus infection and I think I'm on the mend.  We did participate in the Toddler Approved virtual book club.  The book was "The Carrot Seed" and we planted carrot seeds in our homemade root viewers.  I'm trying to keep the kids from over watering their seeds as the glasses don't have a way to drain.

We'll be sharing our summer bucket list Tuesday, May 1st.  Come join us for a party and link up your list too!

Thank you to everyone who shared at AfterSchool last week.  I'm happy to share these features with you.  If you were featured, please feel free to grab a button.

Raina at Mamacita Spins the Globe shared a beautiful castle made from a painted appliance box  their family made while studying Scotland. They will be finishing their study with a celebration.

Danielle at Happy Being Trevy shared a fun way to practice letter recognition, build hand strength and fine motor skills by writing letters with chalk and having her son squirt them away with a spray bottle.  She also suggested writing letters and having your child pull a plastic letter from a bucket, match it to the chalk letter, and wash it away.  Sounds like a fun summer activity! 

Deb at Living Montessori Now shared a great post about using "control of error" in Montessori works.  Controls allow the child to complete the work and then check themselves, allowing them to analyze and self correct if needed.

The Carrot Seed was one of my favorite stories to read to my children when they were younger, such a great and motivating little story! Looks like a fun planting project. :)
