I have promised to catch up on some old posts and have not been doing a very good job of that. It seems forever ago now that we rowed Daniel's Duck by Clyde Robert Bulla. I actually forgot some of what we did, but here are some pictures of the things I remember.
Amazon's synopsis of this book reads: "Daniel is hurt when others laugh at his wood carving, until he learns that giving people pleasure takes a very special gift." As with every book we row, Maggie loved the story.
This story takes place in Tennessee, so, of course our story disk went on Tennessee on our states map.
For a snack to go with this book, Mags made a pretzel log and Cheez-it cabin using chocolate frosting as "glue."
Later, for dinner, we made the recipes for this book found in The Five in a Row Cookbook, Chicken Stew (SOOO good!) ...
Using the suggestion in the FIAR manual, we also made plans to carve our own creation, though not out of wood but Ivory soap which is much softer. First, though, it suggests drawing out your plans, using the views shown below: top, front, side, and back.
Tomorrow, we will start The Salamander Room. It will have way more to offer in the way of ideas than this post did. Thanks for checking in with us!
