This is my morning set up for our school day. The white basket is where I put my
"lessons" for the day including books,crafts supplies we'll need and any worksheets we'll be doing.
I have a cardboard box under my desk where I store my plastic bags for the month.
(My plastic bags hold the book we'll read and any worksheets or craft instructions we'll need.)
Today we are celebrating "Pancake Day".
Our reading will include "If you give a Pig a Pancake"
by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond
and we are doing several print outs from the author's site
I am planning on reading "My First Chinese New Year"
by Karen Katz as well and tying the "Year of the Pig"
into our lesson.We have been "learning" about Chinese New year
all week. I have several crafts lined up for both holidays, but
we'll see how far we get.I try to cover my "subject" over the week
with crafts and music even when we are not having "school"
We are also planning on a "field trip" to our local IHOP for the
free "short stack" when Farmer Dad comes home today.
