Since we were talking about the 5 senses in Little School last week, we decided to to the book, "The Quiet Way Home" for our B4FIAR work.
This story is about a little girl and her Daddy walking home from school the quiet way and all the small noises they observe. Josie really liked this book and loved sitting outside listening to hear all the small noises around our house.
I wasn't able to find many activities to go along with this book so we kind of winged it all week.
Her favorite by far was sitting on the swing listening. Pretty easy!
In the book, they pass by a friend riding a trike. I took that as a cue to head outside and do some trike riding of our own.
I divided the paper into sky and grass and had her color them in. She still doesn't like coloring so I just lightly went over the whole area after she was done.
Then she used a cotton ball to paint on her dandelions! She loved using something other then a paint brush.
I have Jury Duty this week, which I'm actually pretty excited about. I've heard you get to sit and read all day in a quiet room. That sounds right up my alley! So school will be light if it happens at all.
