We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

I know I know...first dinosaurs and now snakes!
Part way through our dinosaur unit we had a visit at our playgroup from the snake man and since then the children have been REALLY interested in snakes and lizards.

After this we found a crocodile hunter dvd at our local library featuring snakes which Lamb watched several times.
It led to using cushions as rocks for gopher snakes (shoelaces) to hide in and tying up snakes in calico bags (blankets) so they didn't 'tag' us!

We got some snake books from the library so here Lamb is reading the book and deciding what snake the white shoelace should be.

I popped the library books and a threading activity on the shelf

 And we've been using pipe cleaners (snakes) for counters with our number cards
