My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Paper Plate Goose!
Day 2 of the week. The theme this week is Books.
Project/Learning Activity- I read the title of our book out loud to Connor and Lauren. (The Day the Goose Got Loose by Reeve Lindbergh) I asked them if they thought the book described a good or bad day. Then, I had them predict what happens when the goose gets loose. Next, I read the story aloud and had Connor and Lauren check their predictions. After the story, Connor and Lauren described their favorite parts of the story. (When the horse gets into the bathroom and when the goose bothers the chicks.) Project - Connor and Lauren fringe-cut a paper plate folded in half. Then the cut the fringe-cut paper plate in half (the wings). Next, they cut the neck/head template out. I stapled the wings and head to another paper plate. Connor and Lauren then glued an orange construction paper beak to the head and drew eyes.
