October 22 2012

People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading.  ~Logan Pearsall Smith

This morning after devotions I discovered that my camera batteries were dead.

Onwards and Upward.
So the day began with:
Animae drawing
Diego matching board game
Kreo building
Foil art
Piano playing
Beethhoven listening
Recorder playing
Much discussion about the history and lives of the different characters in these short stories
African stew eating
Counting by 5's and 10's with the game Boom-O!
Human Body puzzle and study

This book was a fantastic book to spur on learning.
This book has mammals from all around the world. We built our Geopuzzle of the World Continents
Then as we read the book, we looked for the continent and country the animal came from.
This book also include fun facts like how long the tongue is or nose. Out came the tape measure and we spent a great deal of the time giggling over the length of an anteater's tongue.
Exploding toads and other nature videos
Scratch art
Shooting star explanations
Spanish playaway book. I try it. I cannot talk like Jose.
Bible character 

This book inspired all sorts of learning today.
We grabbed a funnel shaped pop bottle and made a tornado
Attempted creating waterspouts
Then visited this site and made a tornado in a jar
Followed by making rain, and creating lightning.
The lightning experiment didn't work so well for us, but it was fun trying
Then some rousing discussion about the tales and wisdom of Aesop
