frog unit

We also used straws and pieces of paper and played a game to see who could suck up the most paper "bugs" as possible. I modified this from another post where you used party blower type things.

Very goofy thing to do with K-frog unit

We did this goofy thing for the frog unit (when studying the tongue). We put a red blanket on a desk chair that spins, and pretended it was now a tongue. When the tongue was not guarded, mommy came up and spun it around out of control (with the child on it) which led to much dizziness and "calamity....

Ideas for cow unit in K - "Milking" rubber gloves

Hi- due to a lack of milk cows nearby- we improvised. We took two rubber cleaning gloves- the disposable kind- filled it with water, a poked a hole in each. Then my 2 yr old dd, and my 5yr old ds, "milked" the glove over a big pot. We even drew funny cow faces on the gloves- it was a wet mess. But, ...

fun ant farm

We just made an ant farm. My son in K and 2 yr old girl loved doing it- and want to keep them as pets! No way :) My son said how exciting it was and woke me before I was awake, and said "When are we doing MFW?" I am so thankful for this curriculum and am happy to enjoy it with my kids. My son is sin...

The duck has everyone take a vote, that he should run the farm, not the farmer. He finds it too much work, and eventually runs for presid...

5 year old says thank you!

Hi all- I'm new to this group and wanted to say hello. MFW seems all I can talk about lately! I started my son in DVDs. It was nice in many ways, but I also saw his frustration at not being able to understand all that was taught. He broke my heart one day unknowingly when he told my husband that mom...
