Learn Critical Thinking with the Community Helper for the R8:00 PM
Our Community Helper for R is Railroad Worker. I was planning on taking the trains outside, so putting together a railroad would be a bit more of a challenge for the girls; of course the day I got ready to do it, it was raining. Seriously? We have been in drought, and now when I need it to be nice it rains. *sigh* No problem, I can make it challenging and stay inside!
I decided to give the girls something they would have to build the railroad around. Something they couldn't move which would require them to be more selective in the pieces they use. So while Eli was sleeping I told the girls we were going to build him a zoo; every zoo has a train. You see Eli has been very into trains since his birthday, and last week at the library he picked out a train book called Down by the Station. Where a little train carries the baby animals to the children's zoo. We have read it so many times; I thought this would be fun for him.
