We played around with an activity from a book I picked up at a library sale, called Math and Literature by Stephanie Sheffield. After reading a picture book called The Bedspread by Sylvia Fair, we talked about symmetry, and played around with venn diagrams.
The girls drew the front of our house, without looking at each others' drawings, but while talking to each other about what they were drawing. "Let's start with the front door." "Did you remember the chimney?"
Ani's front door
Eliza's front door
We compared their drawings and constructed a venn diagram of the similarities and differences between their houses.
so, to the bike path.
All this, some cooking of corn bread, lots of tea, a trip to the library for International Kids Program (a journey to Iceland this week!), and a lot of listening to and reading of stories...some good, mostly quiet days for us.
