We moved on to letter H last week and got to do one of our favorite letter H things… HIKING! Twice in one week!
On Monday we were supposed to meet some friends at a state education forest, only to discover they are closed on Mondays. As one friend said, “Who knew you could close a forest?” Apparently you can. So we headed a few miles down the road to this nice, but much less shady greenway along a river.
The kids enjoyed running down the greenway and checking out the river. We stopped in the shadiest spot we could find for lunch and tried to get a group picture with a ridiculous number of kids!
Then on Thursday at our kindergarten readiness program our teacher had a nature hike around the school planned for us!
We had these cool little scavenger hunt cards to help us find things in nature.
We found almost everything on our card!
We have gotten into the routine of having a craft or art project to go with each letter. This week’s was easy peasy since we had bunches of heart stickers left over from Valentine’s Day!
