Our little plastic animal collection has been invaluable (although Amazon values the Toobs around $12 each). We’ve sorted by mammals, insects, habitat, presence of spine, and vowel sound just in the past few weeks. I keep them altogether in a basket in the school room. You never know when the need for a tiny plastic animal will arise.
Let’s just own that I have given up on the Weekly Wrap-Ups. There’s just too much to talk about every week! Oak Meadow Grade 2 hasn’t lost steam or charm at the half-way mark.
