Amara put on a play about insects today after reading about them in her textbook. She pretended to be an ant, she taped an extra set of legs onto her middle, and she proceeded to tell the audience all about insects. You should have been there.
Some of the facts she shared were these- Did you know caterpillars only use the first three sets of legs? Their back legs are only used to stick on stuff like trees and bushes. Did you know that ants use their spit to help make their homes? Ants have three body parts: head, thorax, and abdomen.
Then Amara invited Lily up and they saying a version of head, shoulders, knees and toes, except they substituted the words "head, thorax, abdomen."
Homeschooling plays make me smile. Last week, Amara's play was about the water cycle. She made masks and she and Lily played the parts of water girl, ice girl, and water vapor! She brought me on a short adventure through a day in the life of water girl. It was fun and I couldn't wipe the smile of my face.
