Little House In The Big Woods - Ch. 2 Curriculum

Chapter 2

I don't have the pictures that go with everything yet because we are running behind thanks to the lovely snow days we have had all week. (It is hard to keep them in when their friends are knocking on the door). At any rate, this chapter is a short one so we will be caught up in no time, I will add the pictures as we do them, and I have full confidence I will be on schedule for next week. I am so thankful that one's voice can't waiver while you type. Here we go!

I found a new report form for animal reports that I really liked at www.Currclick.com for free and you can get it here: http://www.currclick.com/product_info.php?products_id=43658&it=1

I have had Bella writing reports on the animals that we do not have lapbooks for. She is still just a beginner as I have never had her do reports until last week, but we are making progress!
