A couple of months ago I started Science Journals with the girls. They have math and literacy journals that they enjoy so I decided to create a science one to put all of our science related learning.
|I gave Finley this little assessment and she enjoyed it. We talked through it together and she wrote the beginning letters of each word.|
|My girls love picking flowers so on this day I had them draw their flowers (with a little help) and write a sentence about it. Rowynn told me about hers and I wrote it down for her.|
|Finley's entry about her flower.|
|Finley's entry about planting her seeds and the steps we took.|
I think it is so important to have a house full of mixed media for my kids to explore. We have a TON of books in this house, but I also want access to magazines, newspapers, restaurant menus, brochures, etc. My parents got the girls a subscription to Highlights a couple of years ago and recently we got a subscription to Ranger Rick Jr based on a friend's blog post.
|The girls are enjoying their subscription to Ranger Rick Jr. and learning about different animals.|
|Here they are "flying" backwards just like the hummingbirds in our magazine.|
|This girl LOVES animals!|
|We counted the zebras and then practiced counting by twos to count their legs.|
|One of the issues talked about Rhinos so I had Finley draw one and write a sentence about it. She wrote the word Rhino and a "L" for like, "T" for to, and "E" for eat.|
