This week's row was The Bee Tree, by Patricia Polacco. This was a cute story about chasing bees to the bee tree and finding some sweet honey. I was hoping that we would be able to see some bees up close, so I posted on a local bee keepers page on Facebook. I asked if anyone would be willing to let us come by and see some bees up close. Just something basic. One of them messaged me, so we went by for a peek!
Lily got to see a real honeycomb up close, and touch it.
The beekeeper was even nice enough to give us some yummy honey! We were very excited about this.
This spin and graph bee activity was a hit for part of our math lessons this week:
We also played a Build a Bee game:
We got a little derailed in the middle of this unit. Both Lily and I got hit with the stomach virus that has been going around everywhere. The beauty of homeschooling, though, is when I have a sick little girl, we can just take a break!
This was a fun row, even though we got sick in the middle of it, and I kind of lost my motivation. Oh well, it happens. We will just pick up and move on to our next unit: The Salamander Room. Lots of insects to discover in this one. We got a head start on it already! Our caterpillars arrived in the mail yesterday!
