We have VBS at church this week, so we are not doing a unit study. (I am leading preschool crafts, so all my planning energy is going into that!) We’re going to continue our calendar binder and workbooks, and get back to some child-led learning next week. When I ask Grace what she wants to learn about, all she says is “nature.” All weekend she was ‘reading’ her bird field guide to me, and as we were running errands she’d yell out randomly, “mom – a red winged blackbird!” I read the field guide to her one time about a month ago, and she can tell me about every bird in the book in detail.
Next week I’m going to focus on reading basics, and let her decide what else to learn about instead of doing a pre-planned unit study and see how that works out.
