It is dark and rainy outside this morning. So, it looks like we won't get any playtime in today in our backyard. It will be a good day to read all those Sonlight books. We are learning about birds today and their different characteristics. We found a bird nest the other day that was halfway falling out of a tree so we took it down and have it in our homeschool room now to study. It is so intersting to see all the different things that birds use to make a nest. We found the usual twigs in this nest but there was also some stuffing from a stuffed animal and some yarn. My son was really amazed at how birds use so many different things to build their nests.
We will be making edible bird nests today. I don't know if we will get to see any birds perusing our birdfeeder today since it is rainy and yucky outside. But we will see. We will also be reading more books today about dinosaurs and reviewing our letter sounds. We will review some simple addition problems and also practice counting by ones and tens.
We are also still reading in our Martin Luther King book that we checked out from the library. We mailed Coretta Scott King a letter thanking her for all that she and her husband have done for America.
That is it for today.
