Kindergarten Day 6
Today for Columbus Day, Princess colored
a picture of Christopher Columbus while I read
Follow the Dream by Peter Sis. (previous post has link) We talked about how people thought the world
was flat back then and traced his voyage on our world map.
When Farmer Dad got home she told him a little bit about
what she learned and I was pretty impressed that she got
so much out of the little "lesson".
Of course it probably stuck because he was looking for China.
lol She still loves China.I cut out her Columbus figure and we taped
his body together, Princess would not stick with the all brown I told her to use
for his outfit...his outfit is more like the "coat of many colors", and although she did the
connect the dots for the Nina, she had no interest in drawing the Pinta or the Santa Maria.
We also tried to paint using zinnias, but it did not come out the way we wanted.
Naturally, I'll post a couple of pictures.Including one of her playing the mandolin
on the porch.Princess also played soccer with her Dad outside
and made him a necklace and they played some board games.
