I have been reading lately a lot of books about home schooling. One common theme is learning in the every day. Especially taking books and then applying them to your life as it is today.
Olivia's lesson for today involved reading some books, singing some songs and then a craft to end it. We read several books but ended with "The Letter" from Frog and Toad Are Friends.
Then I asked Olivia who she wanted to write a letter to. She replied "Uncle and Nana and Papa". So we got out some paper, pens, envelopes, stamps and stickers. She proceeded to "write" her letters. When the "writing" was all through I showed her how we address the envelopes and put stamps on them.
