Mary tells about her lap book



To introduce Mary into her first year of school we decided to read the book Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco and create a lap book. It's about a little girl frightened by a Michigan summer thunderstorm and how her grandmother "Babushka" calms her by preparing to made a cake she calls "thundercake." The day we made the cake we watched some youtube videos on how flour is made from wheat and how sugar is produced. She enjoyed learning about thunderstorms too, especially since she has the opportunity to live in a state where they are frequent! (Big sister Emma created the video, thanks Emma)

She is so adorable in that video.
We live in Michigan, and I think she knows more about our state than my kindergartner! Good job, momma!
