A Nose is a House for . . .

It's been a really long time since I've done a homeschooling post. 

Don't worry - this isn't one, either.

But schooling did get me to this post.

While doing Geography today we were studying some recommended reading.  This geography book let's you teach K-6th grade, and this particular book was perfect for Max's age.

A House is a House for Me by Mary Ann Hoberman.

A delightful book.

Lines such as . . .

How pockets are houses for pennies
And pens can be houses for ink;
How peaches are houses for peachpits
And sometimes are houses for worms;
How trashcans are houses for garbage
And garbage makes houses for germs . . .

We were laughing and creating our own, such as mine and Izzy's -

A closet can be a house for stuff
While a teddybear is a house for fluff;

Sweet, right?

Then there was Max's.

Yes, here we go.

This is my son's rhyme - even though it doesn't rhyme.

A potty is a house for tee-tee and poop
And a nose is a house for boogers.

Now, ask me again why I don't blog about homeschooling much?

Maybe because sometimes I feel about as qualified for this job as  -

"There is no reason to become alarmed and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of the flight.  By the way, is there anyone who knows how to fly a plane?" - Elaine on the movie Airplane

Yep, we're rolling right onto the genius train around here.

He took the book to his level and made it his own. Cute! It probably could have been much worse ~ wait till he gets older!
