We read The Fox in the Dark by Alison Green. A fox is sighted by many animals in the dark forest one night. One at time they each end up at rabbit’s house seeking refuge and a place to sleep for the night. Rabbit’s bed gets crowded. Animals are shoving and pushing for space. Still there is knocking on the door. A small fox wants a place to stay. He is lost and can’t find his mom. Finally Momma knocks on the door looking for him. The animals surprise her by letting she and her little one stay for the night. This book scared JDaniel a little the first time we read it. When he realized the fox wasn’t looking for a midnight snack, he relaxed and enjoyed subsequent readings of the story.
- What did we do?
- It has become a tradition for JDaniel and I to visit his Aunt Jane at the high school she work at in costume and deliver her a treat. This year I had him decorate an old shoe box with Halloween stickers. We put cookies we baked into the box and took it to her school on Wednesday. She loved the box and I bet she inhaled the cookies.
Writing a Poem
- JDaniel loves to sit beside me or on my lap and work on the computer. We went to a great website called Read Write Think and wrote a poem about the moon using their Shape Poem interactive tool. Basically I just had JDaniel tell me things he knew about the moon and type them in.
