Week 7 (with Seasons; Addition)

Unread post by RachelT »

Proverbs Book

"The Ant and the Grasshopper" is suggested in the TM for science week 1. We read this book when introducing Proverbs 10:5 [in week 7] and it gives another great picture of the meaning of this proverb, with some cute illustrations.

Ox-Cart Man by Donald Hall would fit nicely with seasons.

Seasons With Art

Unread post by akoldenhoven »

My family loves creating art, so the unit on Seasons was great fun. We created a set of 4 seasons using construction paper, used our fingers to paint trees for each season and made "disappearing trees" by painting autumn hued watercolors over painter's tape trees and removing the tape. Here is a sample to spark your own ideas.
