Ask Mr. Bear {b4FIAR}

Recently we completed a week "rowing" with Ask Mr. Bear by Marjorie Flack using Before Five in a Row.   In Ask Mr. Bear little Danny is looking for the perfect gift for his mother's birthday.  I chose to row this book at the start of our marathon birthday month, which nicely began with mom's (my) birthday.


For our bible focus (in addition to our regular devotions) we used Kids of Integrity, Generosity.

We listened to Songs for Saplings: ABC: letter Gg, James 1:17, also using Totally Tots printables.


To go with the theme of "birthday" we used Scholastic's 15 Fun and Easy Games For Young Learners, Pieces of Cake.  This game teaches fractions to the young elementary (K-2).

Danny lives on a farm so we thought it was fitting to also focus a little on farms.  For math we used Old MacDonald's Farm Poke-a-Dot by innovativeKids.  This is an interactive counting book where you count Old MacDonald's animals, counting from 10 to 1.  My kids just love these books (and fight over who gets to press the dots). 

Social and Science

With all the animals in the book I decided Emma should watch "What is a Mammal" from Visual Learning Systems.  (Full review here.)

Sam loved Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever. (we found a well loved copy at the thrift store). We opened up the book to page 16-17 and lingered over all that there was to see. 

We revisited an old favorite farm book, Kiss the Cow!.  Then read many "for fun" books, with the theme of birthday, such as

For Connor I got Our Farm: Four Seasons with Five Kids on One Family's Farm.

We ended the week with the 1st of 3 celebrations.
