This afternoon was a bit busy and we didn’t have much time to do what I planned but we were able to read Little Mole’s Wish by Sang-Keun Kim, which is an adorable story, and completed a rocket page in our sticker shape book.
After our nature hike and some down time we had a snack and read Winter is for Snow by Robert Neubecker. Then colored a letter sheet and practiced drawing snowflake shapes. Elliot was pretty done for the day but I created two paper snowflakes and had him make a few cuts.
Continuing with our winter sky study Elliot and I read The Mitten by Jan Brett and then discussed why the mitten was so big when the grandmother found it and what animals squeezed in to get cozy. He remembered quite a few.
After he completed a few winter themed worksheets we created our own little mitten with wool roving, our first time! I’ve been wanting to do wool crafts for awhile now so I’m excited to finally explore it with him. Elliot picked purple and I decorated with a little white. I think it came out cute.
This morning Elliot learned about stars and constellations. We read Our Stars by Anne Rockwell and then completed a connect the stars worksheet and he made his own constellation. We also used these beautiful reference cards by @raising_up_wild_things. Later I have a fun project planned as we explore this topic some more.
