It's not often that it snows 5+ inches in Georgia. But it did this year. There couldn't have been a more perfect book to row than Snowy Day.
Just for fun, we painted snow cakes (molded snow and watered-down paints).
Then we tried to duplicate one of the pages in the book which is illustrated in water colors and small pieces of colored paper.Addison practiced painting, cutting, and gluing, too.
First School, and an animal tracks checklist from Nature Detectives.
We did an awesome science experiment (thanks to an idea from a veteran homeschooling mom). [How to make snowflakes video]
We made snowflakes - - they turned out great!
Outside, Aubrey walked with her toes pointing out, then with her toes pointing in, just like Peter did in the story.
Aubrey made a track in the snow using a stick and snow angels, just like Peter.
Addison had a little mishap with one of the spray bottles....but isn't she cute!
