Frosty Walk

Weston and I went on a rather frosty walk down a path just outside our front door yesterday. We found lots of animal tracks and some iced over puddles to play in.

An Autumn Walk at Anglesey Abbey

We spent this afternoon on a nice autumn walk around Anglesey Abbey. We tried out the cloud viewers, visited the lode mill, walked through the rose garden, pretended to be trains following the blue extension cable “tracks,” swung in the hammocks, climbed a straw hill, snowed leaves off the treehouse, and conquered a giant leaf pile.

Pilgrims and Native Americans

This past two weeks we’ve focused our learning on Pilgrims and Native Americans.

We watched several videos about the Plymouth settlement, took a virtual tour of a recreated Mayflower ship, watched Native American dancing, learned about original Thanksgiving foods, and watched a turkey hatching. We played history detective with an online Pilgrims and Native Americans game, read lots of books, made a dream catcher, and did a Mayflower dot to dot page. We also did a long nature walk noticing all the autumn colors. Weston continued to practice reading and our math. We completed our autumn leaf mobile and Weston made himself a “power fist” with fabric, needle and thread. We finished our Thanksgiving weeks with a communal dinner with friends. Weston helped me make our contributions to the food spread – green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and ritz pecan pie.
