I hope you enjoyed A Family is a Family is a Family by Sara O'Leary with art by Qin Leng. I loved getting to learn about all the different kinds of families! I thought that since we read a book about families this month's craft should be doing a family activity!
This month's activity is Making Art with Nature! You and your family can go for a nature walk and gather supplies to use for your art project! Remember to only grab leaves, twigs, flowers, pinecones, acorns, and other objects that have fallen off their tree or plant.

HERE IS MY FINISHED PAINTING!
For my next nature art piece I used glue and my nature items to create a picture! Since I had a bunch of nature items I decided to make a BIG TREE with little trees, bushes, and some flowers in front of it!
After you and your family go on your nature walk will you come back and tell me everything you found? Can you show me pictures of YOUR ARTWORK? I'm SO EXCITED to see what you create!
Ihad so much fun reading to you!
Did you enjoy The Tea Party in the Woods by Akiko Miyakoshi? I love how all of the animals were so happy to see Kikko and that they helped her when her pie was crushed.
Thank you, Ms. Jenna
Here are the instruction on how to make your own bug jar!
Thank you, Mr. Dean
for starting Children's Book Week by reading Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct! It was such a fun story! I especially love how Edwina makes chocolate chip cookies for everyone! This is why I decided to share a chocolate chip cookie recipe with you. Print out this recipe, grab an adult, and make some yummy chocolate chip cookies together!
I'm Marissa and as Jenna mentioned in the last post, I'm the new Outreach Coordinator! We are going to have lots of opportunities to get to know each other this year!
