I-5 and R7 worked on describing fall on some leaves last week. We talked about how words that describe are called adjectives and we named a few. Red, cold, orange, and gray sky are some of the words they chose.
We decided to put them up outside the "castle". About four years ago or so now we made this castle out of a sturdy box some of the equipment in Dan's lab came in. We'd been reading Henry and Mudge and the Long Weekend by Cynthia Rylant. In it Henry and his dog are super bored until his mom suggest making a castle out of their refrigerator box. Since then it has become a great fort, reading corner, play house and R7 has taken to decorating it with her art work on the inside. It's very cute and I can hardly believe we've had a huge box in here that long!
