We finished up Ee Elephant a few days before having the baby, and now we are taking a couple week break to get adjusted to life with Joshua. The bible words for Ee Elephant, were "I will remember what God has done for me". We tried to remember all the blessings that we have been given. The picture above is one of the elephant masks we made. We also started a large mural of a zoo, which we will finish when we start school up again. We read the book, "If I Ran the Zoo" by Dr. Seuss, and then they made silly animal pictures, shown below.
We don't have a zoo with elephants near us (not to mention it's winter outside), so we had to settle for watching a nature video called Echo. We all really enjoyed it. The kids also thought the book Peanuts was hilarious.
We made large strides in the reading department! I found these little books, Clever Critters. They are short vowel readers, and Caleb was able to read the first couple books, with a little help from us. He was very proud and wanted to keep reading them, but they get harder as you go so we had to stop. The Bob books were a little harder and he got frustrated much quicker.
