Sorting Leaves By Colour

10_NatureCould Have Been Kindergarten
Today my daughter was supposed to start Kindergarten. In the effort to stay positive during this teacher/BC Gov labour dispute, we created a fun project together.

1 Nature
Nature Walk In The Rain
We started the day collecting colourful leaves. Of course, there were many “puddle breaks” along the way.

Beautiful Brown Snail
This was the best wildlife picture from our nature walk. We also counted eleven slugs and one pile of bear poop.

Drawing Seven Leaves
I asked Jade to draw seven leaves across the paper. This would be a guide to help us sort our colourful leaves.

4 Nature
Counting The Seven Leaves
Jade is double checking the amount of leaves she has drawn.

5 Nature
Colouring the Seven Leaves
Finalizing the map that will help us sort our leaves.

Jade’s Final Drawing
This map will help us count and organize the leaves based on colour. As one can see, Jade is still learning to write her numbers.

6 Nature
Matching A Map Out
Jade has sorted where the colours will be placed.

7 NatureSorting All The Leaves
Jade is sorting all the leaves she collected from our nature walk.

Stacking All The Leaves
At the end of the day, I added the leaves I collected from our walk together. All the leaves are stacked and ready for the next stage of our project.

Last Drawings Before Bed

Drawing Before Bed / 1

Jade draws everyday … from morning till night. Often, she wants to doodle before going upstairs for story time. I asked her about this particular image. She simply stated, “It is a big loving family.”

Visiting Unikitty at Cloud Cuckoo Land

Unikitty

Jade’s been talking about The Lego Movie for months now … Jade’s gone Lego Movie crazy !!!

Jade still isn’t very comfortable using scissors so we brainstormed a project. She really wanted to create something with the Unikitty character (I had nooo idea what she was talking about). After some internet research, we recreated Unikitty’s home in Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Finally, last week we purchased The Lego Movie DVD … and now I finally “get it” !!!

Awesome !!!

The Challenge:
Find a pattern in nature and fill a page by repeating it over and over, using at least eight different colours.
