To improvise is a natural process for children.

If you are without a bat… use Christmas wrapping paper!
Can’t find a baseball?  Why, use any ball you’d like!

I am really enjoying the younger kids.  Maybe because it’s bitter-sweet knowing this is my last round at it!

Last week was Letter Nn:

We learned about nightingales!

We colored them, made nests, and created cheerio birdfeeders.
We also listened to their birdsong.

For science we have been learning about the senses:

This week was the Sense of Touch:

We created a textured nature page;
soft, hard, smooth, crinkly, scratchy, bumpy, etc…

We also used the goop, glurch, silly putty, and slime that we made during Spring Break

and size-sorting Katie-girl’s homemade nesting origami boxes.
There are 12 in all!  …down to the teeniest box ever, lol.

We also made cookies, went on a nature stroll, and practiced writing our last name.

Love the littles~  they keep life lively!  =)
