I printed out a story sequence set of the story, this was a huge hit!
We of course made blueberry pancakes!
We spent the rest of the week studying about bears, hibernation, and other animals in the winter, and how they prepare. These are some of my go along books....
We learned all about bears, where they live, what they eat etc....
We also learned there are 7 differant kinds of bears in the world! They loved this, and it lead us on a few rabbit trails of other bear facts around the world...
For living Math we talked about fractions... to better illustrate this, as they weren't quite getting it with these cute pails
I poured some blue food coloring into water, and we started with one cup, and filled up each other cup till it was full. This made sense to them! and we did it over and over,
we said for each one. 1/4's full 2/4's full 3/4's full 4/4's full~!
We discussed how mountains and hills are made... and of course a side trail of Mount Everest..... which was very fun for us.
The story takes place in Maine. We have covered several stories on the East coast, so they are becoming very familiar with this area of the US.
Some other lapbook fun... inside the basket flaps are other things made with blueberries, and a fold it book of the way Fruits grow, Plants, bushes and trees.
JT drew some pictures of the story..... for ART.
Kt loves her book, It's her writing book,
I find her ideas for coloring soooo interesting...
here she is to copy one Mat Man to another - Just the lines.. yet after she chose to coloring them in.
on Jt's I cut out a little baby Tshirt with a pirate and treasure chest on it, and just sewed it on... it says "treasure hunting"
Our sunflowers haven't bloomed but are still growing tall!!!
