This is our most recent unit display which has on it some winter books to enjoy along with one copy of our Birds of New York book. You never know when a fun bird will happen by or you have a question about a bird.
There's a Civil War Fandex along with a copy of If You Lived at the Time of the Civil War. We returned the library books we had on the topic, but these two resources get a lot of time. On the other end are gobs of books about westward movement because I had been wishfully thinking we'd step back in time to the Oregon Trail and follow along with the Westward Ho! Program. I've since changed my mind, but I'm still working on what might be next on our itinerary this year.
I came across some cute bulletin boards at By Sun and Candlelight. Check out Winter Learning with Dawn and February with Dawn.
My plan for our words is to have the kids do some writing. R9 will be given a poetry assignment with the winter/February words and I7 will have to choose several to write sentences with. Nothing earth shattering here, but it is a novel way for them to choose words and it requires a small adventure just to find the words they are to use.
We'll also do an art project to put in our gallery frames above the display. Sometimes we forget and right now I think the thankful poems need to come down!
