kansas has a birthday!
we took a loooooooong picture walk through the picture book version of little house on the prairie.
there are times when it doesn’t seem that i’ll be able to keep a group’s attention with reading a story, but picture walking through it seems to work. maybe the drama of, “ooooooooo-look by the wagon!” or “how do you know it’s night?” or “how many girls do you see?”
then we looked at lincoln logs, real logs and used paper logs to make a house like way back when. a favorite part for some was giving the cabin a trim when done.
complete with doors…some opened, some didn’t. some were nearly as big as the cabin, some were tiny enough for a mouse.
