Miss Spider's Tea Party

Back on track!

For the second half of October I chose a book that is one of our "stand-bys." Little Girl loves it, Hubby loves it, and I love it, so it is one we could all have fun with. It also presents some great opportunities for crafts and activities, so we are looking forward to a fun few weeks! The book we are reading is:

Miss Spider's Tea Party by David Kirk.

While the tea party is coming soon (when we visit Savta next week that will be a great time!), we did start with our art and counting fun. With my "expertly drawn" outline in hand, Little Girl got to color her own Miss Spider, and we practiced our counting by gluing all eight legs onto her.

Best of all, at least to me, Little Girl is learning to share her love of reading and decided that her baby doll (aptly named "Baby") wanted to color, too.

Due to circumstances...

...including buying a home and the Jewish holidays, I have fallen behind.... So yet again, we have a free reading period! We have been sharing some favorites here at home, and Little Girl is still insisting on Moo, Baa, La La La! whenever she can!
Keep reading, and hopefully by the middle of October things will have calmed down enough for us to get back into the swing of things!
