The Giving Tree

We read The Giving Tree by Sel Siverstein. We did acorn counting sheets. We started Nature journals and collected leaves for the tree pages. Filled the bird feeder for bird observations. We also made pinecone feeders to hang in the pines outside our house. We watched the video "Kids love spanish #2 alphabets and numbers" from the public library. For our field trip this week we took a walk in Aunt Caroline's Woods.
