Our very first FIAR story for this semester was The Story About Ping by Marjorie Flack. We had lots of fun learning about the country of China and life by the Yangtze river. Our highlight for the week was going to a local park to observe the ducks, see their reflection on the water and the ripples they formed while swimming. Unfortunately, my camera's battery died while we were there so no pictures of our outing. : (
Other books we read this week:
Tikki Tikki Tembo
The Five Chinese Brothers
The Little Duck by Judy Dunn
Come Along, Daisy
A peek inside our notebook for the week....
Flag and map of China (kids drew Yangtzee River on it), picture of river with "yellow" water, Ping's Family math activity.
Vocabulary words, bouyancy experiment results, ducks facts that Caleb learned throughout the unit study.
