Caitlyn and I had a wonderful time reading the Wizard of Oz and doing all the activities I had planned to go along with it.
We were blessed with a copy of the book and these incredible dolls to go along with the book from my parents. Caitlyn used the dolls to retell the story over and over again.
She also explored tornadoes to go along with the book. She made a pastel picture and actual got her hands a little dirty doing it. She also made a cyclone in a bottle. It was hard to capture in a picture, but she enjoyed the experiment.
We also followed the yellow brick road of the story, and did our first in depth character mapping.
This was probably our favorite activity and I love how well it turned out. Caitlyn thought painting the poppies with celery and pom poms was funny (she just didn’t like the smell of the celery).
When we finished the book we watched the movie and completed a comparison contrast of the two. We both loved reading this book together for the first time, and Caitlyn also loves the movie and has watched over and over again.
