She chose this one because it's by Tedd Arnold who writes Parts, one of her all time favorite books.
In Hi, Fly Guy, Buzz the main character needs a pet for a pet show. He catches a fly for a pet.
After reading this book, Shayla decided she needed a fly for a pet. How was she going to catch a fly for a pet? I didn't know either, but she prayed about it. I swear she did! Anyway a day or two later, a live fly appeared in this canning jar while we were praying for lunchtime meal. (Sorry you can't really see it, he must have been camera shy!)
We studied the fly, reviewed the names of the parts of bugs.
For music, we sang Dr. Jean's I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.
We played this game while we read I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. Shayla put pieces in place with the story. I was going to include the link so you could print your own, but I couldn't find it.
I guess homeschooling is definately spontaneous!
