Photos from October Week 2

long multiplication with the Bank Game

happy mornings spent exploring Indian corn

removing kernals from the cob

taking a break in the bean bin with a book

an older child grabs my copy of L is for Lincoln to show a picture
look... this ear of corn looks like the Tully monster!

a gift from her great-grandfather

mixing up corn muffins at the mud kitchen

carving potato stamps as part of our lesson on the

making beautiful necklaces

this week we got a lot of practice in sweeping

grating empty corn cobs together

grinding our corn kernals

pulling open the drawer to see the cornmeal
