We have been VERY busy in our class. We've spent quite a bit of time working on creating vivid visualizations. This first activity we did was from the wonderful Ms. Jump, and used the poem "My Neighbor's Dog is Purple." They absolutely LOVED this activity.
At home our boys have been keeping up busy that's for sure! Our youngest who's nine was recently envious of his older brother climbing a tree in the yard, yet was terrified to even try climbing the tree. To me it is simply not right for a child to grow up without climbing a tree, so I insisted lol. He eventually had a blast, and said "I'm so happy you made me try it Mom!" Yay!
