Starfall Learn to Read


Just a few weeks ago a friend of mine introduced me to a website called Starfall. Starfall is a free website that will help your child(ren) learn to read with phonics. The Starfall website states that their website is great for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development (ELD, ELL, ESL).

My 3 year old son loves Starfall and has done very well with the activities online. I really love that this site is easy to navigate through..even for kids!

Here are some of the activities you will find on Starfall.com:

*Starfall ABCs-ABC section teaches letter-sound relationships by providing a kid-friendly navigation system that explicitly focuses on each letter of the alphabet.

*Learn to Read- Children listen to, manipulate, read, and eventually master this sound-spelling through a variety of books and games before moving on to the next row. This is systematic, sequential phonics and is recommended by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

*It's Fun to Read-Here your child is ready to explore a variety of genres and topics that will expand his reading vocabulary and comprehension.

This truly is a great site to help with early language and literacy. My 3 year old gives this site 2 thumbs up!!!

Frugalicious Mommy Disclosure: I was not asked by Starfall.com to review this site . This post was written to share my personal experience & a great resource with Frugalicious Mommy readers.

Wordful Wednesday

This past Sunday my family & I attended an Easter event called Spring Fling. This Military Family spring festival usually attracts around 5,000 children and their family members. There were rides, food, characters, egg hunts, & more. Although we had a great time, the lines for everything were entirely too long sooooo we left early.

Here is a picture I took of my son after he was already upset that he only got 2 eggs in the Easter egg hunt + it was hot which = GROUCHY!

Can you tell he had fun?

Wordful Wednesday

This past Friday my Uncle Jerry retired from the Navy after serving 31 years. So much of our Galbiso Ohana (family) came for this ceremony including a couple family members from Hawaii. It was a very touching ceremony especially when my baby brother relieved my uncle from his watch. As one Galbiso retires from the Navy, another Galbiso is just starting his career. WOW!
Thank you Uncle Jerry for your 31 years of service! We are so very proud of you.



The Watch

Aye mates,
For thirty one years,
This sailor stood the watch.

While some of us were in our bunks at night,
This sailor stood the watch

While some of us were in school learning our trade,
This shipmate stood the watch

Yes, even before some of us were born into this world,
This shipmate stood the watch

In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen
brewing on the horizon of history,
This shipmate stood the watch

Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there,
Needing his guidance and help,
Needing that hand to hold during those hard times,
But he still stood the watch

He stood the watch for thirty one years,
He stood the watch so that we, our families,
And our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety,
Each and every night,
Knowing that a sailor stood the watch

Today we are here to say:
"Shipmate...the watch stands relieved.
Relieved by those YOU have trained, guided, and led
Shipmate you stand relieved...we now have the watch!"

"Boatswain...Standby to pipe the side...Shipmate's going ashore!"

Fitness Friday


Woohoo I'm finally downsizing my body. LOL. I am currently at the end of my 3rd week & I am feeling so much better about myself. My clothes are fitting so much better & my body fat is dropping. My weight has remained about the same which is not surprising because I am turning fat into muscle & we all know that muscle weighs more than fat. In the picture below you will notice that my dreaded back fat is getting smaller! Yaaaay!

The great thing is that I have found awesome support & fellow Xers on Facebook. One Xer I met is Trisha, who is not only familiar with P90X but also a Beachbody Coach! Learn more about how she can help you (for free) here or here.

Tip-a-licious Thursday

DIY Push Pin Boards
Every Monday I attend a Craft & Conversation at the Armed Services YMCA. The Craft & Conversation is a weekly gathering that allows spouses to create social bonds, informal support networks, and promotes healthy, constructive conversation about challenges of the military lifestyle. The group fosters a positive social networking opportunity while offering on-site structured Kids Club to allow for much needed “adult” time.

This week we made push pin boards with simple items you probably have at home! Check out my creation:
All you need is:
*Scrap fabric
*Cardboard
*Scissors
*Glue (Hot glue or Tacky Glue works the best)
*Ribbon
*Items to decorate with (buttons, jewels, etc.)

Directions:
1. Cut a piece of cardboard to the size you would like your push pin board.
2. Cut the fabric to fit over cardboard then glue in place. (Note: I overlapped the fabric to the back of the cardboard to cover the edges then I glued the fabric to the back.)
3. If you desire, add ribbon in a crisscross design to hold pictures, notes, & etc without having to use push pins. (Note: I once again overlapped the ribbon to the back then glued. You want to leave the ribbon on the front of the board unglued so you can insert pictures, notes, etc.)
4. Place decorative items on the board to spruce it up or to coordinate with your house.
5. Add a ribbon or something similar to the top so you can hang up your one of a kind push pin board! (Note: I just glued two pieces of ribbon at the top then tied them together.)
6. ENJOY!

Instead of just using boring push pins, you can glue things to the top of them! Use a hot glue gun to glue buttons, jewels, or bottle caps (like the ones I have on my board) and BAM you have a super cute board!


Wordful Wednesday


Yesterday my granddaughter called me and told me she was awarded student of the month. She was so excited to receive her award. I wish I could have been there but she lives in California, so I was unable to attend. My parents attended and took pictures for me. This is Mariah and my Dad at her award ceremony. Way to go Mariah, Big Papa and I are so proud of you.

This week's Wordful Wednesday hosted by Angie at:



Tasty Tuesday

Fish Stick Tacos

Corn Tortillas (you can use flour)
Frozen Fish Sticks
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 tsp Chipotle Chili Canned in adobo Sauce (I use Gayo brand)
2 Tbsp Lime Juice
5 Cups Coleslaw
Chipotle Queso (I use Dos Padres Brand)

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Arrange fish sticks on baking sheet and bake until crispy -about 11-13 minutes. While fish sticks are baking mix Mayo, Chipotle, Lime Juice, and Coleslaw. Heat tortillas and line with coleslaw mixture, add two-three fishsticks and spoon Chipotle Queso on top. Repeat for each taco.


Winner!!

Congrats to lucky number 10!

The Bookworm has won a pair of tickets & Meet & Greet passes to the Honor Society concert of their choice. Woohoo!
