Learning with Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel | Creekside Learning

This week we read Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton. Here are some of the fun activities we did: Went to a construction site and watched houses being built. Made a chocolate cake with Mike Mulligan (a teddy graham), Mary Ann (a small red digger toy, closest I could find to looking like a steam shovel), crumbled Oreos for dirt and more teddy grahams for the people watching Mike Mulligan and Mary Ann dig the cellar for the new town hall. (Found this idea here.) Used a…

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

For our third FIAR book study, I chose Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton. (We had just finished reading her acclaimed The Little House and I thought Maggie could make some comparisons with the two books with our recent reading fresh on her mind.) This will wrap up our Summer FIAR studies, until we start our first grade year, after Labor Day. The book is really cute, about a man and his beloved steam shovel, at the time that steam power is becoming extinct. He finds…

I have been so bad at one not posting about our studies, two I've been bad at not following through with them and providing them like I use to, three not using lapbooks or unit studies. I understand by now I should be over the whole adjustment period of moving but hey lets just get over it already... Its been hard on me... Zachary needed to have lapbooks or unit studies weekly the way we used to. Starting back this week with a unit I wanted to make sure of a few thing: We could have fun. It…
