Oo Octopus Homeschool Highlights in MFW

Here's our Oo Octopus lunch!  Cut a hot dog so there are 8 legs, leaving an inch or two on one end intact.  Drop into a pan of boiling water for 1 minute, and you have an octopus.  The seaweed is ramen noodles with some green food coloring.  We also had plum clam friends.  We had a lot of fun with our Octopus unit!  The bible words for this week were "Even the octopus praises the Lord".  Cheerios made the perfect letter O suckers for our octopus arms!

Their favorite activity this week was making an ocean mural.  I cut open a paper grocery bag and they painted the entire thing blue.  After it dried, we added ocean animals (I found a coloring page online), fish stickers I had on hand, green streamer seaweed, and more Cheerio "bubbles". 

Here are our books, and one dvd that they enjoyed watching.

And our lap books.
