With our new term about to begin, we're getting ready to reintroduce copying an artist back into our week and using our favourite picture books is one approach I really enjoy; choose a favourite picture book illustrator and then try to replicate one of their pictures.
Many of the Five in a Row tiles remain family favourites so my pick may well be something out of The Pumpkin Runner ~ Marsha Arnold, or Make Way for Ducklings ~ Robert McCloskey.
Who knows what Jay & Daisy will chose; I'll keep you posted.
Marsha Arnold's Pumpkin Runner Unit Study
The Pumpkin Runner & Australia ~ from Aussie Pumpkin Patch
Five in A Row's Digital Download for The Pumpkin Runner
And a mom who will be reading Pumpkin Runner to her boy when he's 30 :D
(If you're interested in extra's we have used, and posted about, to study Australia in younger years go here, here for a colour in page, link to free Map of Australia & book ideas, and an Australian Paper Doll. )
Thank you. We love the Pumpkin Runner and the resources will be helpful for a geography topic at our home education group, next year. We hope to spend a session learning about Australia and the Pumpkin Runner was the book that I have planned to use with the younger children.
Enjoy your Australian 'geography' tip, and The Pumpkin Runner.
Looking forward to catching your post about that, next year :)
Thanks for stopping by.
