Walk like an Animal :: Homeschool

Animal Walks - get the sillies out and learn at the same time.

It’s cold here, like really cold. We finally are warming up slightly, with 0° – 10° this week. It’s been -25° or so for the past month. Makes it hard to want to leave the house; which leads to cabin fever, which leads to crazy kids and stressed out mom.

An easy way to break out of the rut, and burn energy in the process is having the kids go through different modes of walking that exist in the animal kingdom. (this makes a great segue into the mechanics of the animals that cause them to move that way!)

A new month means that it’s time for another Currently. Month’s prompts from Anne are: doingenjoyingcookingwrapping, and playing.
I am going to join in on Gretchen and Kristin‘s link up called “What’s New With You?” which is more or less the same concept as ‘Currently’. Their prompts are more of a status check-in which will be good for accountability for me.

Underchin Exercises

Underchin Exercises - Get rid of your double chin and turkey neck.

I have a turkey neck. It’s genetic. Even when I was a thin teenager I had that chin sag. Now that I’ve gained a bit of weight (oops, pregnancies and depression sure don’t help with that.) it’s gotten to the point that it’s gross.

These are simple and they’ll help you eliminate the problem while strengthening your jaw, neck, and chin muscles. You can perform the following exercises every day, at any time you find convenient. Make sure to relax your chin and mouth muscles before and after every exercise. You can do that by opening and closing your mouth gently, which will loosen the jaw.
