I'm sorry that I have been missing lately, but with the holidays I have been way to busy. On top of the usual gift buying and wrapping Bee and I baked 20 dozen cookies and 4 loafs of banana bread. Bee was my sugar roller and banana smasher. I am going to do a quick wrap up of the weeks we missed in December. Thank you for your patience.
Welcome to Green Eggs and Ham week.
Do you like green eggs and ham? That is the question of the week and the beginning of the silliness.
This book is great no matter how many times you read it and it's fun for the kids to help "read" too. The rhyming words make it easy.
This week for our craft we made a color wheel and discussed how mixing primary colors makes new colors.
The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown is a beautiful example of a father's love for his son. The pictures are beautiful and Bee loved it.
This week for Craft we made our own Jesse Tree. It was a new idea for us and we really enjoyed not only the pictures but also the daily readings that went with it.
What would your true love give to you? A traditional Christmas Carol turned into a beautiful book. Jan Brett illustrated the Twelve Days of Christmas. Glory did enjoy the book, but some of the days were out of the order that she was used to.
For Craft this week we found a 12 Days of Christmas coloring book and Bee made her own book. She loved being able to show off her book to the family.
What happened the night before Christmas? It isn't truly Christmas until you read The Night Before Christmas.
This week we learned about reindeer and Bee drew a picture of one.
I'm sorry this post seems so crazy but I hope Week 16 will be better. Stay tuned for the week of the moon and bats.
