This week we are studying trees during spring. I always enjoy this subject and since we have learned so much about trees already it’s been awesome seeing how much Elliot remembers. We started our lesson with a good book, practiced the letter T and numbers, a fun dot painting, and went over the anatomy of a tree. We also learned about dendrochronology, observed a tree in our backyard, and had an art sesh. Then after lunch for our mini lesson we read a beautiful story about a girl and her favorite tree, learned a little about fruit trees, and observed a twig from our cherry tree.
