Very Last First Time (FIAR)

 Eva's journey is a very special one. Today, she will walk on the bottom of the sea alone. She will go into the cave that is under the ice when the tide is out. She will search for mussels as her people have done for centuries. She will find herself in darkness. She will find too she has brought what she needs with her. She will come again into the light (Source Amazon). 


For geography we worked on the flag of Canada, coloring the country, and putting our Canadian flag on our passport. The boys and I also read about Canada in Beginners World Atlas pg 24.


O worked on some writing practice from write shop. I love when I can incorporate his FIAR with his daily lessons. He wrote about "Winter Animals.

A and I played a rhyme game to help him practice his All about Reading Pre K lessons.

Social Studies:

 We watched some short videos on Inuit life from here. For additional information about Inuit/Eskimo life we used this website . It has tones of information/activities/crafts you can do with your kids.

The boys and I also read this  mini book called "My book about an Inuit family". O and A colored the pictures together and we assembled the book. This mini book is easy for the kids to read and uses simple language to introduce the subject.

Toronto Zoo Arctic Tundra. O and A got to go inside a fox hole to see what it felt like.
