Things have been a little crazy lately, but we still managed to sneak in some educational fun over Thanksgiving week. Here is what we have been up to!
We started off the month with a Tree of Gratitude. Every day we each added a leaf with something for which we are thankful. I loved this activity and wish we could leave it up all year!
I got out our Thanksgiving 3 Part Cards from last year, and Xander remembered most of the words!
I also found some great school packs from Our Little Monkeys and 3 Dinosaurs! We did some word family sorting...
some numbered puzzles...
and some measuring.
I also found this cute scarecrow craft from Oriental Trading.
As a special break from my own schoolwork, we spent one night with a friend in Chicago and went to the Museum of Science and Industry. We both had a great time and could have easily spent a few days exploring the exhibits!
Of course we read tons of books, I just didn't snap any pictures. Xander's absolute favorite was I Know An Old Woman Who Swallowed a Pie
