We had a great time reading and doing a mini-unit study on Stellaluna. For math the little ones learned about pairs, counted by two's, and practiced counting past 50. They also tested their senses by smelling fruit with their eyes closed to see if they could figure out what it was. Also, for science they learned about carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores as well as the anatomy of bats. They learned more about continents as they traced fruit bats around the world. The kids really liked working on their second lapbook for copy work. I love the way lapbooks reinforce what the kids have learned and give them a permanent record in a nice book that they can look back at. Here is a look at our latest lapbook.
We are doing The Grouchy Ladybug next week. I can't wait to see that lapbook!
