This week we started our chapter about the cat family. Within the first 3 pages of the chapter, the kids were telling me all about what Aunt Tara needs to do to help her cat.
Being the good homeschooling Mom that I am, I decided they needed to write down their advice for Aunt Tara and gave them a word bank of useful words.
Can you guess what the advice was related to?
Next time your cat brings a mouse throw half of it away and give half to your cat.
They learned bringing a dead animal to you is a sign of respect in the cat world, and they will feel incredibly insulted if you do not eat their gift.
Of course we had to talk a little bit. At first Batman was suggesting she actually EAT THE MOUSE!
Next time Pixie brings you a mouse throw part of it away and give the rest to Pixie.
Princess changed her answer. Originally Aunt Tara was to throw the whole thing away.
Next time Pixie brings a mouse to you throw a little away.
Next time you’re assigning reports or projects, think beyond the normal science report or summarize the chapter. Make it real to them and bring it home. Help a friend know how to interact with their pet. Warn people going camping about what they might see.
Let’s see what others did this week:
Each week I’m spotlighting a few posts that were shared previously. Many posts get linked up later in the week and they don’t always get as many clicks as they deserve, so I’m trying to spotlight a few every week.
