I week: Tuesday

Today we read Insectlopedia by Douglas Florian. It's a collection of poems and paintings of different insects. I also taught Connor what an inch is. This is not a concept for 3-year-olds, obviously, and I knew that. Kids learn to measure first by using paperclips or something as a unit of measure, not something abstract like an inch. But inch starts with I. As we read the poems about the insects, we measured the insects in the paintings. It was fun!

We also made some turkeys out of traced and cut-out hands and feet. They're going to be our Thanksgiving placecards. I love making placecards and it's even more fun to be able to involve Connor and do a craft together. I'll post pictures when we get them done.
