We are continuing to read the story of Peter Rabbit and Jenny Wren. With this book we can also learn about some the animals in the story by going to the burgess bird book companion. we found these resources through Satori Smiles.
reading about the birds and how their tails went up in the air inspired the lad to draw some creative versions of birds and their tails. Through that I was able to talk to him about some of the different types of tails birds have. From the long tails of the quetzel to the short tails of sparrows and so on.
This afternoon we are off to London to go see the show Water Under the Bridge.
Water under the bridge was a whole lot of fun. It was based on the War of 1812. It had children from the audience participating. The lad got to have a hand in it as well.
So the story was inspired by a town which had the border run through it, and chose NOT to fight in the was as it would mean fighting family and friends.
Full of laughter and moments of sadness. It was a great play to take children too and I would heartily recommend folks checking them out. Done by the carousel players. You can go here to check out some of the scenes in video. It's rather neat, they even give study guides!
