Wrapping Up The Story About Ping

This evening we wrapped up our two weeks spent on The Story About Ping by going to enjoy a delicious Chinese dinner. Elliot enjoyed his first real taste of Chinese food and he really loved using the chopsticks.

Elliot successfully put the story events and pictures in the right order.

We had another discussion about the setting and characters of our story, and I had Elliot dictate everything he remembered about the plot of the story. I noticed this time he was able to remember everything even more accurately and in more detail than when we did this for our last story.

Will it Float or Sink?

Our first Five in a Row science experiment. Elliot enjoyed it so much!

When we were all done, he told me, “Mom, how about you get all the things out that sank. I’ll get the things that floated!” In other words “Mom, why don’t you reach in there and get all wet because I’d rather not!”

Today I introduced Elliot to tangram puzzles and he loved them. I figured now was the perfect time since they were originally invented in China!

Another Field Trip!

Today we went to the park to feed the ducks as a part of our “Ping” study. We’ve got a couple books from the library about ducks that we’ve been reading and the kids really enjoying seeing them in action.

Elliot told me, “Look, Mom! The ones with green heads are boys and the brown ones are girls!” We just recently learned this from one of our books.

So many Mallard ducks came to see us when they realized we had food!

Caroline decided she enjoyed feeding herself more than she enjoyed feeding the ducks.

The Story About Ping

Last week we completed our first Five in a Row book, Night of the Moonjellies, and this week we’re beginning The Story about Ping by Marjorie Flack. We’re really excited about all the new things we’re going to be learning about!

We placed our Ping story disk right on the Yangtze river in China.

We also found China on our globe.

These are some of the books we’ll be reading that go along with what we’re learning while reading “The Story About Ping”.
