Well it rained all day yesterday nonstop and when I went into town to pick up my daughter from school the roads were flooded. They had even closed off some roads. It looked like lakes had cropped up everywhere. It was incredible. Thank goodness the sun is shining today and it looks to be clearing up.
We will be learning about flamingos today. I just learned that flamingos are not born pink but gray. The parents take turns sitting on the egg before it is born. They can fly up to 35 m.p.h. and use the water to help them take off.
Our dinosaur learning series will continue today with the Pterodactyl. I have thouroughly enjoyed learning about all the different dinosaurs with my son. My son knew so much about the dinosaurs as we have read each book this week. He would tell me which ones were plant-eating versus a meat eater. He watches Dinosaur Train on PBS and I attribute that show with him learning so much about them.
We made our edible bird nests yesterday and they turned out great! Hopefully we will get to see some birds today using the pinecone feeder we put up the other day.
We will continue practicing our letter sounds today and addition problems and Hooked on Phonics.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
