Anywho...I'm back and I am trying to learn to rebalance life again. I just wanted to update you on all the goings on with my Eaglets, give you a long overdue freebie and let you in on a little secret.
Last week was all about the turkeys. Because we had a two day week, I felt justified to "gloss" over the recommended curriculum and have some fun learning. In Math we concentrated on patterning. On Monday we made these adorable paper plate turkeys, creating a pattern around the rim to act as feathers. Here are a couple of my favorites!
On Tuesday, we made Native American headbands. After learning about how Native Americans used symbols on a lot of their attire, my students created a pattern that represented things about them, then added some feathers. Here's the finished project!
Here are some of our natural predictions that made me smile and laugh out loud!
The turkey got cut up for Thanksgiving.
He got dead.
(I actually laughed so hard I snorted!)
Last year I used a little stuffed elf I'd made in my college days and most of my kids fell hook, line and sinker for it. This year, I knew I'd need him again, but I can't find him! So off to Target I went to buy the book and the elf. I even snagged one for Little Miss at home. Check back to see what mischief Hermie stirs up.
I'm going to try to milk every educational opportunity I can from it, so we are going to journal as often as possible. I created a elf journal for my kiddos and want to share it with you. Click on Hermie to download it!
And now for the surprise....
