We really haven't been doing as much
'traditional' school lately. It has
been much more hands on and
unschooling in nature. I think both
have there place, and hanging out
at the Smithsonian is far more
interesting to O than learning about
the letter H.
We did have some downtime the other
day, so we pulled out our Cuisenaire Rods
(again). We made a few letters and then
tried to think of words that begin
with those letters. Can you tell what we made?
Hats, heart, hammer, house, and a happy face.
Then we tried making buildings without
a large base. Tricky for adults. Even
trickier for little hands.
Another tall tower.
We tried using all the rods. We knocked
it down with 2 left.
I found a recipe for Play Dough using
1/2 cup glue and 1 cup cornstarch.
I thought since it was cornstarch it
would feel fluffier.
It was a sticky mess. It took quite some
time for me to get it off the table.
Another fail for play dough. I am not
sure why I keep trying to find new
recipes. The one I have words really
well, and last a long time.
