I love sloths. I think that they’re magical, and my husband recently told me about this program in California (correct me if I’m wrong!) where you can have an overnight with a sloth. Let me repeat that: YOU CAN HAVE AN OVERNIGHT WITH A SLOTH. So, I’ve clearly added to my bucket list to have an overnight sleepover with these nocturnal magical creatures to feed them and watch them hang out, while the rest of the world is sleeping. In the meantime, I’ll gladly participate in activity with my children which requires them to mimic like a sloth, just like this upside-down artwork from our Mother Goose Time Curriculum this week.
While we were setting up their art station, I showed them some supplemental videos that I found on YouTube about DiVinci and his paintings, and together the kids and I discussed what they thought it must have felt like for DiVinci to complete so many of his paintings lying on his stomach and his back. The kids sat down in their chairs and then asked how they were going to draw. When I told them “On your backs. Like a sloth. Like DiVinci”…they were definitely not too excited about completing this task. You can even tell in the first two pictures below that Charlotte was not thrilled with being unable to draw the way in which she’s most familiar.
Charlotte was more than happy to be done with her upside-down art project. Charlotte will confidently be reading before she starts Kindergarten this coming Fall, and she’s building her confidence even more with the I Can Read books provided each month with our curriculum. The sight words each month are already pre-cut and I need to get around to laminating them so I can put all of them together on a binder clip. I think that this will be ideal for our busy life, and for Charlotte and Theo to both have easy on-the-go access to a variety of site words.
Thank you for joining us and reading about some of the things we did this past week with our Mother Goose Time curriculum! See you next week!
