By the end of this wonderful book by Pat Miller Squirrel with the aid or her friend Rabbit finds out what her resolution will be. In fact she is told by Rabbit that she has been doing it all New Year's Day. What is her resolution? Well, she will help someone everyday.
I love the premise of this book. JDaniel and I tried to give a lot to others last year and we have continue to work on the 26 Acts of Kindness for Kids and Families list I posted two weeks ago. We will keep trying to work on our acts of kindess and help someone everyday too.
What did we do to explore this book?
JDaniel has been practicing writing his name. This week I had him practice writing his name and the word squirrel with a pencil and a highlighter. He wrote with pencil on the words I wrote with a highlighter and with a highlighter over the words I wrote with pencil. Then I had him write some on his own.
I love the idea of using a highlighter as a writing tool. I came cross this idea while visiting the blog Little Moments
Stake the Perimeter
Next week I promised to feature an exploration post that doesn't involve food.
