Animals and Presidents
I was unable to post on Friday. So, I am back to schedule today. We did our normal stuff on Friday with homeschool plus we finished up our planet mobile. Today we are focusing on baby animals and their different sounds. We will watch the movie "Babe" this afternoon and pop some popcorn. We will learn about veterinarians and how they help take care of animals. I am going to read the book James Herriot's Treasury for Children which accompanies our lesson today. Our letter sounds and addition practice will continue today. We are going to use a carrot to dip into paint to make upper-case V's and lower case v's on a Valentine made from construction paper. There will be more reading with The Lifesize Animal Counting Book and Babies, Babies, Babies. We will being our study on the Presidents today. I will introduce the term president and explain what it means to David. I also have a book about the Presidents that I bought from the Dollar General store called "Great American Presidents". I will be reading that one sometime this week as we study about the Presidents. Have a great day everyone.
