Science and Nature~

Most likely you can find us reading lots of Science and nature on Wednesday and Thursday~
 Our spine for Science has continued to be interesting and then springing from there with the books to the right!

This week we printed a crab to label parts, watched A House for Hermit Crab~

I keep all our Science books in a tray on the hearth for reading whenever they choose~

I like keeping a record of their Friday Free Writes so here they are~

Nature Study~

Today we pulled many of favorite nature books and read an assortment of things~

Right outside our kitchen a tulip had bloomed so we picked, dissected, and sketched~

Then we were off to beautify our yard~
 Came in for fresh strawberries and a story~
 More yardwork~

Then a picnic lunch with an afternoon in the pool~

I'd say it was the perfect Nature Study day!!!

Poetry & Popcorn Tuesday~

Today it was just TOO beautiful to stay in for poetry time so we took it out to our table~

Everyone chose a poem to read and enjoyed their popcorn~

Then we chose passages for our copy work~
Nothing like sitting out in nature birds chirping all around while we work.

Schooling at the Beach~

The only things I brought to the beach were a few ocean books, new watercolor pencils, two pocket microscopes, and nature journals
then left it up to them~

 Finding treasures on the beach is always the best~
 SJ drew us on the beach when we first got here~
 Crabs and sharks teeth~
 New lego kits~

 Crabs and jellyfish~
 Shells, shells, shells~
 Drawing in nature journals~

 And an afternoon with The Wizard of Oz since it's cloudy and we just finished this read aloud~
I'd say they are capable of schooling themselves her at the beach!!!
