The walnut trees are beginning to change colors and drop leaves in Kentucky already. While they’re still full of nuts, I wanted our nature study time this week to focus on these trees. We used one of the nature notebooking pages from the Delightful Deciduous Trees NaturExplorers study to focus our attention.
Mahayla made some Apple Cinnamon Muffins that we took on the road for a modified tea time. After notebooking pages were filled out using info from the Tree Fandex Field Guide; I read Claude Monet: Sunshine and Waterlilies about our current artist; and read Ludwig Van Beethoven about our current composer.
Back at home, the kids tried their hands at Monet’s Impressionist-style outdoor art. They both found interesting places to sit and paint.
Beethoven’s Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 is our listening piece of the week. Something about classical music playing during work time really keeps them focused and peaceful. Hmmm….I may pipe classical music through the house at all hours of the day!
