Make Way for Ducklings – Boston, MA – Homeschooling the fun way

We love to read! What homeschooling family doesn’t? I personally like to teach using alot of fun literature and do a good mix of Five in a Row with my own variations and extra activities. One of the FIAR authors is Robert McCloskey and one of his books is Make Way for Ducklings. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re truly missing out! It is a sweet tale of a family of ducks who is searching for the perfect home to raise a family. They end up on an adventure through the city, finally finding a place of traquility in the midst of the crazy in the middle of the Boston Public Garden. The park itself is certainly a treat with monuments dedicated to revolutionary heros, walking paths, and the famous swan boats along the water. We didn’t have alot of time to do alot in the park, but I wanted to make sure we could go and see the little ducklings. The children enjoyed seeing one of their favorite storybooks brought to life (contrary to the looks on their faces – that’s just the PCS – Photographer’s Child Syndrome – kicking in).
