Homemade Compass for Katy and the Big Snow8:00 PM
Recently the girls have shown more interest in school and as a result I have started going through Five in a Row (volume 1) with them. Honestly it isn't much different then some of the things we would normally do like book related activities, but it gives a great guideline that ties tons of topics into a single book (which you read each day for five days). The makers of Five in a Row only expect you to discuss each topic or do a small project, but we all know I have to further with, well, everything, and add something hands on. So the first book we chose was Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton; because at the time, we had a big snow!
Over the 5 days of reading and discussing Katy and the Big Snow the girls came to really enjoy the book and remember the lessons taught by it. I definitely think they will enjoy Five in a Row, and I am sure you will be seeing more book based activities to go along with it!
