Nursery Rhyme Day: A Unit Study

Thursday was Nursery Rhyme Day at our house, inspired by Porridge Play Doe over at Fairy Dust Teaching. We ate porridge (Mal to Meal) for breakfast and read nursery rhymes all day. Not just the classics but spin offs from the classics like "Three Havalinas." This is a great way to teach basic literature skills.

We fed Porridge Play Doe to the Three Bears...

With Teething Biscuits for Baby Bear...

We made our own Storybook Village inspired by Charlottesfancy...

And we finished up the day by writing our own nursery Rhymes...

My son, who just started first grade and rarely produces anything on paper, shocked us with this list of perfectly spelled rhyming words...

It was a fun change of pace and a good review.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
