We started our day by studying the eyes of different animals. We discussed what we saw that was the same and different, and even guessed the animals these eyes belong to!
We enjoyed visiting Oklahoma today. We read/sang in This Land is Your Land, as well as Riding in My Car in honor of Woodie Guthrie. We loved looking at these books because they showed many different landforms and America symbols we had learned about earlier in the year. We also watched a very short part of the song Oklahoma from the musical. We talked about how Oklahoma had a lot of wide open land that is used for farming and cattle. We also talked about the windmills we saw that were used for drilling for oil. I'm so sorry to do this to you, but they love Riding in My Car, the funny version, NOT the Bruce Springsteen version. I'm putting both clips on here so you can choose. The funny version is the pop-up book we read, but the kids had learned this song in music with Mr. Sheets. Just a warning, I'm not sure if there is a way to get the song out of your head once it's in there!
