Continuing with C... Well today we moved along with the letter C. We ran errands in the morning and then after naps we spent quite a bit of time on Enchanted Learning's Little Explorer Dictionary for the letter C. We continued our word list and then spent the early evening reading several library books. Some of our favorite subjects covered so far this week are crystals (we are going to grow some tommorrow), caves (we agreed to build a cave to spelunk and hibernate in) and constellations (I wish it were warmer to take them outside to watch them - perhaps we will have a field trip at the end of the week to the planetarium) and chocolate chips. All in all it was a fun day (until bedtime) and we learned alot.

Today we read the following C themed books:

Constellations by Diane Sipiera
Clever Tortoise by Francesca Martin
Growing Crystals by Ann Squire
Coyotes by Emilie Lepthien
Clifford Takes a Trip by Norman Bridwell
The Costume Ball by Katherine Holabird
