We wrote in our News From the Nest journals today to document what we have been noticing with Rosa and Martin. The children enjoyed a short clip I showed yesterday that showed the wiggle the eagles do when they sit down to incubate the eggs. I'm sure you will enjoy it as well.
We read a book called How to Catch a Clover Thief, by Elise Parsley. This book is about a boar and a very clever gopher. We were able to make some predictions in this book as we read. The boar is repeatedly tricked by the gopher in this story. Boar is no fool, and figures out a way to get rid of gopher so he can grow more clover and enjoy it himself. Gopher's luck runs out in the end. Ask me to tell you about the story How to Catch a Clover Thief.
Today we wrote an opinion piece, comparing two stories. We chose from How to Catch a Clover Thief and Those Darn Squirrels. We wrote our opinion first, then had to include two supports for our opinion.
Have a nice evening!
