The Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was our school book for the week. We really enjoyed the book and found a lot of great activities to go along with it. Throughout the week, we listened to a complete audio recording of The Tales of Beatrix Potter whenever we were in the car. I had never read any of the stories before and really enjoyed the recording.

On Monday, for social studies, we talked about setting and following rules. We took a trip to the Henry Ford on Tuesday and did our language arts work there, discussing fantasy stories.

We visited the Heritage Park Nature Center on Wednesday. When we got home, we talked about nature art and made some nature sketches and watercolor paintings.

For our math work on Thursday, we planned our own version of Mr. McGregor's garden using our counting cubes. Aidan also wrote a "letter" detailing his garden plans.

On Friday, we started our garden seeds for science. The kids also went to a fun Princess and Superhero Night with Matt. Addie loved dressing up in all her princess attire and "high heel shoes" and they both had a blast.

Today, Aidan and I went to see Wild Swan Theater's production of Peter Rabbit in Ann Arbor. This was Aidan's first play and I wasn't sure how he would handle it as he isn't a fan of going to movies. However, he really enjoyed it and there was a smile on his face throughout the show.
