Read to Me
Our book of the week was Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert.
Alphabet Art- Valentine V
cut up valentine cards
Glue the card pieces to the V and you'll have your Valentine V!
Lessons & Lapbook
I used the lessons and lapbook from Homeschool Share. We also colored and glued some of the V printables from the Alphabet Notebook to the back of the lapbook (not pictured).
Simon's garden journal was cute. He told me what to write:
I planted little seeds. Then it sprouted. Then it became a plant. It is going to have very huge squash on it. I am going to share it and eat it.
Here is a little greenhouse I found at a book sale (yes, I find the strangest things at book sales!).
You can recreate this idea with a plastic bag. You could even use some cardboard to make a frame for the greenhouse. You simply tuck a wet paper towel and a few seeds inside the house. Radish seeds are great because they sprout so fast. We've actually use this multiple times with different seeds.
Let's Make a Memory ~ Cooking Vegetable Soup
First, we headed out to the garden to grab some of our home grown vegetables. Then I peeled and chopped and sliced and diced until we had tons of veggies. We started with garlic, onion, and olive oil. After it cooked Simon added the broth. And lots of veggies (celery, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, and cabbage)!

Pretty please post U.
We have finally arrived on U. I am able to use the info for the Alphabet Notebook, but very curious as to what you did for the letter on the front, and the books you used. Looks like I am not the only one who enjoys this blog so much. 🙂
Finally! U has been posted. 🙂 http://www.walkingbytheway.com/blog/?p=714772
