The lesson is tagged for 3rd-5th graders, and I'm not going to lie; it was a little difficult and frustrating for Iron Man (5) at first, because he wanted it to look exactly the same as the tutorial. However, I talked to him about how it is okay for our artwork to be different/unique and not just a copy of someone else's work. After he was finished, he was very happy with it.
So onto our Thanksgiving Book Basket. I had been slacking off over the summer and early fall in regards to keeping an updated book basket and reading good books to the boys, but it feels good to get back into a routine and they are asking for me to read to them more now too.
These are the themed books I have been reading aloud this week or will try to read to them next week. We are travelling for Thanksgiving and staying in the other house, so although we won't be doing any "school" work, I plan to take a few books with us for the long car ride and bedtime stories.
