Julie at Just Playin' Around is hosting this week's party.
The AfterSchool Blog Hop is hosted by:

We started our bird unit this past week, but I just haven't had time to put the posts together...soon...


I will share a great book that I discovered at the library this past week, "Oobleck, Slime, And Dancing Spaghetti" by Jennifer Williams.  The author is a school teacher and she has paired some wonderful science experiments with some favorite children's books.  I'm planning on doing some of the egg experiments in the book that she has paired with the book, "Daisy and the egg" by Jane Simmons.

Features from last week's AfterSchool Party!

Beth at Living Life Intentionally had a wonderful snowman week themed week with her kids and has shared a snowman learning pack.  You can see her "S is for Snowman pack" here.

Lorie at Reading Confetti has a cute Crocodile Counting activity to go along with one of the "Lyle, Lyle Crocodile" books.  It looks really easy and I know my kids would love it.

Thanks for linking up to last week's party!  Hope you've had another great week of after schooling.  Please grab a button or put a text link with your link up post and visit a few other links.

Ooh, the book sounds wonderful. I stumbled upon an interesting link that might work well with your bird unit - We were using it in our "sound and hearing" lessons. I never thought that there is a difference in bird sounds until now.

I'm always looking for a great science book. I'll look and see if our library has one copy and put it on hold too =)
