This week’s theme was The Little Red Hen. Although we did read the book and completed the project we will actually be revisiting this theme again in a few weeks when we get to go on a Flour Mill tour. Instead this week we were able to take a fun field trip to a candy store… yum. Unfortunately I forgot my camera for that one and do not have any photos to share of the enthralling, and oh so sweet smelling candy making process… but here are the kids (in their PJs) working on this week’s art project… glue batik quilt squares. The kids are excited to be making another Harvest Quilt.
Week Four – The Little Red Hen
This week we are working on Week Four of our Harvest Time unit. I will be posting a weekly update to give everyone a space to chat about the program. If you would like more information about the program you can learn more and download the free homeschooling curriculum on our Harvest Time page. All of the directions for the art projects, recipes and activities are included in the curriculum guide. If your family is participating in the Harvest Time curriculum either for homeschooling or after school enrichment we would love to hear about it! Please leave a comment in this post in regards to your experiences with Harvest Time’s Week Four activities. You are welcome, and highly encouraged to leave links to your Harvest Time’s Week Four blog posts or pictures in the comment section of this post.
