Who knew

I let A. guide the activity, this is roughly how it went:
1. sort by size
2. sort by color
3. sort by size
4. sort into "families" (by color) in the egg cartons
5. Big ones became mama hens, little ones eggs and baby chicks....lots of "Peep, peep"-ing
6. I challenged him a bit to put three babies in each hole, and one had to be orange
7. Back to sorting by family
He would have kept going, but it had been about 45 minutes and I was growing bored and moved on to other activities. It was funny for me to see him dust off his hands after he had satisfactorily made a grouping of some kind. He was so intent on it all.

Nature Walk Poster

Just a quick photo to get back in the habit. Here is a poster we made from our nature walk one day. I really emphasized all the words as we were writing them and gluing the items on.
