June is our last "official" month of "school" for the year. We'll still do some work this summer - we're always learning after all - but practically speaking, we'll do a math lesson a day, keep reading journals and write in our individual blogs. There will also be plenty of nature study going on - natch. :)
Over the summer, in the cool of the early mornings, I will clean the room from top to bottom, and once we get closer to September I'll set aside a whole weekend to polish and prep the room for a new year. (Our first day of the new year will be Monday, August 30th.) But for now, learning room chores for the month of June include making space on the nature shelf for summer treasures and renewing the file folder crate.
I took a bunch of pictures the other day, and I'd like to share them with you all. First we have the June nature corner:
The nature puppet center for Earlybird:
(I change up the puppets according to season.)
The book display - textbooks below, picture books above.
Like our summer garland? Broad leafed ivy interwoven with grapevine ball fairy lights.
They're lovely at night, especially.
The bulletin board this month:
Where I work:
The new file folders, ready to go:
The old file folders ready for scrutiny:
Tools of the trade, and our little bird nest candelabra.
So here's to a new month ...
... hope your June is just swell!
