Well.. this has been one of those weeks for me! We've been so busy practicing for our Gingerbread Man play that we haven't had time to do a lot of the things I had planned. But we are having fun!!
Here are some of the things we've done so far.
We read, If I Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 . We are charting some of the things we are learning on our Mayflower Voyage tree map. I hope to finish it tomorrow.
The kids made their own Mayflower and unscrambled a sentence.
Since this was posted this Turkey Glyph has been reworked and it now includes recording sheets, patterns and a much cuter turkey. You can view the materials by clicking on the pictures below.
Each year around Halloween we read, Pumpkin Jack.Then, we carve a pumpkin and place him on top of soil and watch him decompose just like he does in the story. EWWWW! Yes, it is kind of gross...but it is also really cool! This is how Pumpkin Jack looked on November 2nd.
|This was Pumpkin Jack last week. You can see he is getting a little moldy and shrinking.|
Turkey Strut Math fact books.
I will post more pictures Friday.
Have a great week!
