Hodgepodge {Madline and Apples}~

Yesterday we finished up our row of all things Madeline and today moved on to apples since we are going on a field trip to the mountains tomorrow.

I picked out a couple of books to read~
 and both showed the changes an apple tree makes through the seasons of the year.
We divided paper into four sections and made winter, spring, summer, and fall apple trees~
Even Evie loved making this project for our art wall!

EK, SJ, and I also spent some time simplifying once again their school supplies and books.
Over the past two years, we have used the rainbow drawers for their work and decided they might best be used by the boys/Evie~
I bought two containers and color hanging folders for both girls.
 We organized their same materials into the same color folders but in a more simple way.
They still follow the same schedule/concept of completing work in each folder but takes up WAY less space and can be moved to any area we might want to work inside or out.
The boys and Evie LOVE that their work is now in the rainbow drawers and do one color per day.
I have begun letter/number of the week with them and they are learning like crazy!
Yesterday we made a trip to the library and today~
 This is where they went as soon as lunch was finished.
LOVE reading to them before our rest time.
A great Wednesday!!!

  1. So much fun!!!! Such peaceful photos! Hope you are enjoying Fall Break & Have A FABULOUS trip to the mountains!!
    (We made a trip to the LB too, but we had to return ALL our fall books instead of recheck because they were ALL on such a scurry I think I even returned a personal book that they of course can't find because I didn't have it marked and they assume it is a donation) I have a BIG basket to keep them separated, but didn't work this time.
