1) We started the week off celebrating the Chinese New Year. The kids loved it.
2) Our library is getting rid of all of their cassette books on tape. I picked up a few classics for a dollar a piece. Most of them were already on our reading list for the next year.
3) We enjoyed a field trip to a historic site in our area this week. It was the birth home of one of the governors of our state during the Civil War. We had several friends join us and learned a great deal about what life was like in the 1830's - 1850's.
As soon as we got home, Little Red Ridinghood wanted to make her very own rag doll like the ones she had seen at the historical site. She made a mommy and baby.
Her sister soon made a doll, as well.
We had a wonderful time at the library progam this week. The kids learned how to hula hoop with a professional hula hooper.
We also did the FIAR book, Andy and The Lion, this week. I did not take a single picture of our activities. We learned about Venn diagrams, talked about how important a first sentence is in a book, did hidden animal art, acted out the book and discussed the reason we do not go to circuses due to animal cruelty.
