I would really like to stick with B4FIAR and put it into our daily "schedule". (Isabella has asked to do more as well.) Now that I seem to have more energy (running+eating better=sleeping better), I am not quite so desperate for a nap while Oliver is napping, so I can spend some of that time focused on working with Isabella. I feel like I'm still figuring out our rhythm with 3 kids and good weather. I know I'll figure it out and then it will all change!
My favorite part about exploring The Runaway Bunny is I was introduced to a bunch of Margaret Wise Brown books that I didn't know. We now love The Important Book and we really enjoyed Bunny's Noisy Book.
With all the fantastic weather, I can't say I really got into The Runaway Bunny. I think I was suffering from a bit of spring fever.
Here's what we did:
|Playing the "If...then" game from the story.|
|Pen drawings vs. watercolor paintings|
|Matching bunny silhouettes.|
|Making "handprint" crocuses.|
|Our bouquet of crocuses.|
|The finished lapbook. All printouts are free at homeschoolshare.com.|
