Snail Study

Alexandra has been begging to teach me again since she taught me about ladybugs last week. So, while we were at the library this week, she picked out a book about snails and decided that was what she wanted to teach.

I helped her find a few websites earlier this week and she printed out a coloring page, a maze, and instructions on how to make a Model Magic snail. We had a cute lesson today that lasted about an hour. I thought our snails turned out adorable! And, I'm glad to see her so excited about learning. And, teaching!

Hi Dana, I have not visited your blog for a while as we have been dealing with a string of sick kids and I have started a photo a day blog with some ladies at church and that has taken up my blogging time for the day :) I try to only do so much blogging as it can take over my down time, so much great stuff to read! Anyhow, I always enjoy stopping by here, you have done such a great job of documenting your schooling.

I had to comment on this because I LOVE the idea of letting your child teach something to YOU! What an inspiration! I'm going to let GB try that soon.
