Since we are done with our intro to the alphabet for the year (Lucy and Sophia are only 3 and 2) and our St. Patrick's Day and Easter fun, I chose an ocean theme for us to center our activities around for the next few weeks.
We live near the beach and will take a field trip there if it ever warms up enough.
Today we counted and sorted Lucy's sea shell collection about ten different ways.
Then I read a few non-fiction books about the ocean (very quick read),
followed by 'The Rainbow Fish', one of my favorite children's books, which teaches the importance of sharing (these two have a lot to learn about that!).
Then we made our very own Rainbow Fish.
They turned out so cute- lots of prep for me but they were totally involved in the project- most especially the glue and the glitter!
A fun but tiring day- only 3500 steps on my Fitbit- no way I'm going to the gym and it's even too cold and windy for a walk for me.
I'll make up for it tomorrow.
