Okay, I admit I’ve had a BIG case of the blogger blahs lately. Yes, my last post was March 16th. That was over a month ago. Whoops! Well, I’m back because I finally have something I’m excited about to share. We started one of my favorite units after spring break – Air & Weather. We have been busy filling our science notebooks with new learning and scientific vocabulary. I’ve also been trying to incorporate our studies into reading and art. Here is an art project the kids managed to complete today with the help of some parent volunteers.
Materials: white cardstock paper, chalk in shades of blue, purple, and green, cotton balls, glue, scrapbook paper, sharpie

Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date!
