Unit 5: Nest in My Father’s World Kindergarten has been completed for quite a while now, but I am so very behind! Here it is anyway!
Unit 5’s words to remember were: God takes good care of me.
Some of the things we did in this unit:
Every day we read the poem, “The Secret.”
We have a secret, just we three,
The robin, and I, and the sweet cherry-tree;
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just us three.
But of course the robin knows it best,
Because she built the—I shan’t tell the rest;
And laid the four little—something in it—
I’m afraid I shall tell it every minute.
But if the tree and the robin don’t peep,
I’ll try my best the secret to keep;
Though I know when the little birds fly about
Then the whole secret will be out.
We watched an interesting video on youtube about all the different types of nests that animals make.
We did a Picture Box Activity with textured letters.
We made a nest badge.
We did a sequencing cards student sheet.
Then, because Chandler loved this activity so much, we broke out the box of sequencing cards a teach friend gave me.

Noah also did something I thought was really neat. We have these flat reindeer ornaments (from Ikea) on our Christmas tree. No it’s not still up, that sucker is long gone! That should just show how behind I am on posting. Anyway, he loves to take them off the tree and carry them around, but one day I saw him do this…
He put them in the lacing cards box! I guess he figured they looked the same. Pretty smart if you ask me!
The Ugly Truth
I don’t want to admit this, but… not only am I behind on posting, I am behind with homeschool. At this rate we will be doing school year-round! Gah!
Any advice for staying on track?
