We also had a visit from a secret reader, Miss Kelly, Carter's mom. She read us a book we'd never heard before called Mr. Pine's Purple House. This was her favorite book growing up. It's all about a man, Mr. Pine, who lives in a neighborhood with 50 white houses, with 50 little pine trees outside, and 50 little bushes all lined up in a row.. He wants something a little different so he decides to paint his house purple. Turns out his splash of color sends the whole neighborhood on a painting spree and soon they live in a much more exciting place.
Today was all hands on, all day! And it was great. We took the water beads from Ella's science experiment yesterday and tried to figure out how many there were in that gigantic bucket. We did a lot of counting, a lot of adding, and even a lot of multiplying! More on this coming soon.
