Princess and I were still in a joyous mood from Tuesday,
so we got right to work Wednesday morning.
After checking what the Tooth Fairy left under her pillow.
Yes, she finally lost a tooth!
Right before we went to vote
Tuesday night...we were all so excited.
We did a bit of math (addition and subtraction),
she practiced her penmanship by writing her name
on yet more thank you cards. She practiced writing her full name.
She read me a book..and very well too.
She worked on her vocabulary words, by writing them
and using her
wooden letters to spell them.
We read Why Do Leaves Change Color?
and then went outside to gather leaves to make leave rubbings.
We had mixed success with our rubbings,
and then decided to paint a "thankful tree"
on our back door.
We will cut out our leaf rubbings today and keep them in a basket by the door.
Whenever Princess thinks of something else she is thankful for, we will write it on a leaf,
and tape it on our tree. She already has quite a list. ;-)
We love spending time in this room at this time of year. Watching the trees change color,
reading, having our "tea". Rubbing warm kitty bellies and watching the fish and crabs
enjoy their little worlds. We have plans to make some curtains for this room to keep it warmer
in the winter.We have a small heater we use, unfortunately, that means we have to see it, but it keeps us warm in all it's "ugliness". I would do without it, but the crabs and the fish need it to survive in the cold temperatures.
