I recently received this book from Thomas Nelson to review. What a timely title! I appreciated that author realizing, and stating, that things are changing so quickly that some of the information would be out of date before the book was published. I found all the information given worthwhile. There were so many things to think about while reading of the threats to our dear nation. There have been many more attempts at terror inside our nation than has been covered in the media. The appeasement that our government is practicing is so apparent! Reading this book should be on the to-do list of every American that still cares about America. There is still time to change our course.

Today's letter is "H". We chose to study Hens. What a great spring activity. Besides, May is National Egg Month and what better way to celebrate eggs, than to learn about hens?
We read a few good books:
The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone
Henny Penny by Paul Galdone
Hattie and the Fox by Mem Fox
We enjoyed a few fun activities:
Hen online puzzle
Online Farm and HenHouse game
Hen and chicks coloring page
"H" Tracing Page
Of course, we ate a good snack...
Chicken salad sandwiches
I also had a few dry wishbones that the children were able to snap.
For math, we learned that an egg is oval and why an oval isn't the same as a circle.
We also played a variation of Scrambled Egg Math. I took an egg carton and wrote numbers 0-9 inside each indention, along with an few extra 1's. I added two marbles. Each child got to shake the carton, then open it to see what numbers the marbles landed in. Then they counted out that many markers that were set nearby.
