I have the pleasure of teaching the 4 and 5 year olds in our homeschool co-op for this semester. Once a week, I'm teaching them history in a fun way. We're going back in time and doing things they way they used to do them. I'm using the "My First Little House" book series, which takes stories out of the chapter books and makes it into picture books.

And the latest...Summer in the Big Woods
This class had lots of chicken talk. We brought our girl, "Floppy Comb", who is excellent with kids. We played hennies and washed eggs. The kids LOVED washing eggs. I should have collected more, it was so fun for them. Plus we played "Count your Chickens". Totally not an old fashioned game, but it's one we love. I highly recommend.
Only one week to go before that's a wrap! I've loved doing this with the kids, it's been a highlight of my week.
