The preschoolers get up so early that I can start them on their work before the first graders are even getting dressed.
This morning I took them all the way back to the letter “A” just to review, and they had several questions about ants. So I found an insect video for them, and now we know “ants have 6 legs but spiders have 8, but boys and girls do not have antennae or thorax.”
