I found this while lingering on blogs one morning. I found this link to the Two Writing Teachers and it immediately linked me to some amazing writers and bloggers:
We've experienced two days of "Cold Days" resulting in no school. Yesterday was good. We did this:
And some of this:
Today is our second snow day. It's 9:00 am. We're a little stir-crazy and I'm starting to hear this phrase a lot in a brotherly tone, "Please Stop!!!" So I'm insisting on a trip to the library. And we came back with this:
Yes, Huge Stacks of Books. See any good ones? It was awesome to watch my 5 year old actually take the time to browse through the library and pick books out. In the middle of one of the stacks you can see a children's cookbook-he loves being my "Sous-chef" or "Shoe-Chef" in his words when I'm in the kitchen.
These two books really caught my attention, so I wanted to highlight them. They are fairly new, 2013 publish dates, so new to me for sure!
|In this counting book, Musk Ox and Zebra are trying to simply count to 10 with shenanigans along the way. This book is hilarious. |
This book is a simple science book. A great book for inquiry or to feed a child's curiosity about animals.
How many days have you spent out of school due to weather? Any? I would love to hear how you spend your days!
