I've been cleaning up a bit in our classroom, organizing the bookshelf again. I've got some really good books--so, today I thought I'd share a few of those books. Great for homeschooling!!
Earth Child 2000

Chapter 1: The Circle of Day and Night
Chapter 2: Earth Celebrations Throughout the Year
Chapter 3: Wonders in a Garden
Chapter 4: Trees are Terrific!
Chapter 5: We and Wonderful
Chapter 6: Home Sweet Home
Chapter 7: Going...Going...Gone?
Chapter 8: Hurt No Living Thing
This edition has teacher resources and lessons which makes it very user friendly! ;)
The Anytime, Anyplace guide to Sowing & Growing Fun
by Avery Hart and Paul Mantell
I'm enjoying reading through this book and planning activities for us to do. This book has easy to do projects for teaching children all about gardening.
The Little Hands Art Book
Exploring Arts & Crafts with 2- to 6-Year-Olds
by Judy Press
This book has a lot of cute and fun activities for little ones. I let my children flip through the book and choose. They've even used some of the ideas here to come up with their own creations.
