Tot School 3: “A” Ant Week
1) Make sure the ants come from the same colony or they will fight and eat
2) Make sure the ants are large enough that they can’t fit through the air
hole and escape.
We also read (because Mr. Smiley was still sleeping) “Boys and Toys” in our Storytime with the Millers, by Mildred A. Martin, about two boys who missed their chance to go with their mom to get eggs, because they took too long to clean up their toys (which has been a huge issue recently). The boys decorated a toy box and cut out pictures of toys and glued them onto their wood toy box. (And yes, I know he his holding his picture upside down.)
While I got Mr. Smiley ready to walk to the post office to mail our “coupon” to habitat our farm, the boys watched this GREAT video on the alphabet! I was way excited! Go TV–it does have some redeeming value!
Which leads me to today, Tuesday . . . thanks to http://www.homeschoolshare.com/ and http://www.lapbooklessons.com/ we created an ant hill from a printable and I had the boys glue sandpaper to mimic an anthill. We finished the morning by traveling to the library to pick up the rest of our ant books!
