ferdinand

We have recently joined a homeschool co-op group and we are really enjoying it! It has been a great way for us to meet other homeschool families and it gives the kids a feel for a school environment. For our literature class, we are doing FIAR. The first book that we are reading is Ferdinand. Ferdinand - "Ferdinand is a little bull who much prefers sitting quietly under a cork tree-- just smelling the flowers--to jumping around, snorting, and butting heads with other bulls. This cow is no coward--he simply has his pacifist priorities clear. As Ferdinand grows big and strong, his temperament remains mellow, until the day he meets with the wrong end of a bee. In a show of bovine irony, the one day Ferdinand is most definitely not sitting quietly under the cork tree (due to a frightful sting), is the same day that five men come to choose the "biggest, fastest, roughest bull" for the bullfights in Madrid". lapbook - middle back You can find all of the lapbooking components at homeschoolshare.

oh how fun! I've tried to find a group like yours in my area and haven't had any luck. The only one that I found was for older kids.
