N is for Nest

I have not been matching up Before Five in a Row lately for Sissy.  Instead I've been using this routine with Sissy and Little Bear.  I really enjoy having all three at the table or listening in to the story or doing a craft or science experiment together.

Last week was N is for Nest week (animal homes).

The words to remember were: God takes good care of us.

Most of the suggested books were ones that we have read before.  But, it was good to revisit them.  We also kept our eyes open to animals and their homes.

Here are some of the books we enjoyed reading:

In Which Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets Stuck Into a Tight Place from Winnie the Pooh, Milne (Rabbit's burrow)

Two of the stories were from one of Bud's favorite books, The Best Nest and Are You My Mother, Eastman

But, the favorite of the week was Tanglebird by B. Lodge.  The kids loved this sweet book and thought it was so funny how his nest was so tangled at the beginning and how he learned to make a neat nest.  When it was time to turn in other library books for nest week, Bud wanted to keep this book a little longer.

In addition to the MFW  activities, here are some other links to things we enjoyed this week:

Great animals and their home match up from this great site:

 Mama Jenn's wonderful MFW K words to remember copywork  sheets:

And nest, bird, egg craft:

Oh and before I forget we watched Donut Man's video At the Zoo and it went along great with this unit.  There is a time in the show where the Donut Man even says the words to remember.  A perfect song on that video for this unit is 'Home sweet home' ---it talks about three  different animals and their homes.

**Not too many pictures this week for some reason;(**
