Field Trip! Late last week we planned an early morning field trip with a friend to a nearby apple orchard. We woke up to stormy looking clouds, but we took the gamble and went out anyway. We did get a little wet at the end, but so glad we went anyway.
In hindsight, we probably should have had a lesson talking about apples and such before or after, but we didn’t. We just went an picked apples and tried to keep K3 from putting the rotten, bug eaten apples from the ground in her bag. in the end I just sorted through them and tossed them out when she wasn’t looking. We ended up with 3 or 4 varieties of apples, but I have no idea what they are. Overall, it was a really fun outing, and now we have apples for our science day tomorrow (making applesauce!)
When we got home we had a snack/sight word lesson (from Moffatt Girls). I put cereal in bowls and asked the girls to fill in the letters with the cereal. I didn’t get any after shots, but this is how they looked starting out. E4 did it pretty well. K3 just ate the cereal.
Later in the day we did a circle time and updated our calendar, practiced our Bible verse of the week, Phillipians 4: 13 (I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me) and a FIAR art activity (colored a picture of the Yantgze River with colored pencils) but I didn’t take any pictures. We also did a round on the merry-go-round with our Sing Spell Read and Write curriculum. All our previous lessons with this have been a breeze, this one, is gonna take some time. But we practiced blending B with the vowels. We all then played a card game called Snap and I considered this our Math lesson as is was time to start dinner.
And that’s what we did today!
