Exploring the World with Benny, week 12

Our actual topics for the week were the Netherlands and turkeys. (I know I'm a week behind with the turkey theme, but unless you reserve the books 3 weeks ahead it's impossible to get turkey books for the week of Thanksgiving.) There weren't many choices for stories from the Netherlands, but we made up for it by reading Christmas books all week since we unpacked the advent wreaths, books, and kid's nativity set on Sunday. (Now if I could just convince Benny that we don't need to read Merry Christmas Charlie Brown every day.)

The Netherlands
  • The Hole in the Dike by Norma Green
  • Katje, the Windmill Cat by Gretchen Woelfle

  • Farmer Goff and His Turkey Sam by Brian Schatell
  • Sam's No Dummy, Farmer Goff by Brian Schatell
  • Setting the Turkeys Free by W. Nikola-Lisa
  • 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey
  • Turkey Surprise by Peggy Archer

No craft link this week. Benny made handprints with fingerpaint and added in some extra tail and wing feathers in different colors. I used a Sharpie to add the eyes and beak. He had a blast!!
