Raccoon Hearts

The children loved making their raccoon heart art and gobbling up heart shaped quesadillas and chocolate covered strawberries. 
I still love Pinterest's never ending supply of holiday art project ideas.

Book Review: Penguin In Love by Salina Yoon

Penguin in love is a cute little story about a pair of penguins who knit themselves into friendship. I think we may have used as much string as those penguins who knitted clothing for whales, seals and other arctic animals. The girls wrapped and wrapped their tiny little cardboard hearts with yards of string. Little scissor cuts along the edges helped to keep the string in place. If we ever do this type of art project again, I will definitely pick up some thicker weighted yarn!

Sight Words

Sight words on bracelets, on the chalkboard, and next to the door/shoe spot. The more we see it, the more we practice it!
