World Turtle Day!






Wednesday is World Turtle Day, so we will be reading
about and coloring some pictures of Turtles.
This ties in beautifully with our recent trip to
Ocean Fun Days, where they had a female turtle
with eggs and a male turtle to touch
and a bunch of baby turtles to touch and hold.
Princess really enjoyed that so off we go to learn more about turtles.












If you care to join us, here are a couple of links you might find useful:

I'll try to post pics of our fun later.

Update: We read Ocean Commotion (see Monday post for info on this book)
and we talked about where they lived and what they eat and how big they get
(things that interested her the most) then we colored pictures of the habitat and of turtles
and did a Franklin puzzle. We also used a tape measure to plot out how big the turtle was in the story.
We also worked on her Birds and Reptiles action sticker book and did a turtle maze that we printed out
from turtletides.com (see above for link).This I put inside a plastic sleeve so it can be done again without re-printing it.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
