    Anabel loves acting out stories, it is also her favorite thing to do. I used to be the one to initiate it and encourage it but now that she has gotten older, she almost always initiates the retelling. Or if I make her some props, she will start using them on her own. I love it! Recently she has been acting out her favorite Frog and Toad books.

    Sounds like a great unit! We've done only a few FIAR stories. I found the whole process of rowing a bit too repetitive. We may revisit it at some point. Love your activities though. I highly recommend the book, Seashells by the Seashore if you haven't read it yet.

    I am so excited to see you doing FIAR. I just got my manual for Vol 1 today. I am planning to combine montessori and the FIAR activities too! I heard about this at Walnut Hill Homeschool (new blog of My Montessori Journey) and have been hooked. I will be sharing our activities on my blog as soon as we start them in a few weeks. My plan is to set up the activities so that D can explore at her pace and when she wants. We are starting with Story of Ping!

    This book is not on my radar yet, but I loved what you did with it and will be back for inspiration when we get to it! I am pulling together our row for How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World and I think apples will be an easy theme to begin incorporating some montessori activities with our FIAR. Hoping so, anyways. Well, I hope you have more success with your next row.

    This is very timely as we are doing this book this week. I will probably write a bit about what we are doing in my review post on Friday.
