February is a Fun Month!!

So much fun stuff is happening in February.

My son would tell you that first on the list is his birthday! He is turning 11 this year.

Valentine's Day  We have many crafts planned and will read themed books as well. We are even planning  a little family party. Lots of love! 

February is Black History Month. Last year, we learned a lot about the Underground Railroad. We read many books about the subject (see book sharing monday: black history month posts). Carol at You're Not Lost, You're Here! blog has put together a great list of links for learning more about Black History Month.

The 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver are starting on February 12! We will be incorporating some learning fun while watching sport events online.

Journey North Mystery Class starts February 1. We are looking forward to this very much! Please let us know by leaving a comment if you will be participating too.

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place February 12 to 15. More information can be found here.

As we get closer to some of these events, I will share some links and activities that we are doing...so stay tuned and have a wonderful month!
