Here’s a few assorted links I’ve found lately that I thought were worth keeping.
I’m posting these here in case they help others and also so I can find the sites later when I need them! I’d pin them but in most cases, they don’t have pinnable images.
4th Grade Spelling lists… We don’t usually do anything formal in spelling. (Here’s a tip from a mom who’s HSed to the teen years– spelling is one of those things that takes care of itself very well through the rest of life if you have a child who likes to read and write.) That said, Jack could use a boost and we’re doing some weekly spelling words now and trying to make it fun. This site has lots of easy printable lists and you don’t need to sign up or jump through any hoops (and other grades, too).
Acids and Bases (Science Fair Projects and Experiments)… Wow, this site looks awesome. The projects are categorized and look really interesting. It’s a no-frills site, but one I want to spend more time investigating.
Cross-Reactions between Trees and Foods – Oral Allergy Syndrome - AAIA Quarterly Volume 29 Fall 1993, Dr. Ham Pong “Oral Allergy Syndrome” — allergy to a pollen triggers itching of the mouth when related foods are eaten. See Oral Allergy article on Articles page.
Foods associated with BIRCH pollen allergy: apple family (apple, pear), Plum family (almond, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach, plum, prune), Parsley family (carrot, celery, fennel, parsley, parsnip), Walnut.
Foods associated with RAGWEED pollen allergy: banana, melons.
Foods associated with GRASS pollen allergy: melons, orange, tomato.
Foods associated with MUGWORT (Artemisia vulgaris) pollen allergy: – apple, carrot, celery, melons
Reading which family various things are in is quite interesting, too. Or perhaps I’m just a geek! That’s pretty much confirmed, too!
In other news…
Don’t forget that Pi Day is coming up! Here’s oodles of fun stuff to do to celebrate.
I’ve also written recently about How to prepare your daughter for her first period, a recipe for Easy (I swear!) gluten free and dairy free glazed donuts, a new site that features kids’ science projects with theme challenges, and how kids can sign up for a free 2-year subscription to LEGO Magazine.
And now, I’m back on toddler duty. I wonder what the odds are that Fiona would like to relax in a bath and look through gluten free cookbooks and garden magazines with me?
