We've been "rowing" Cranberry Thanksgiving as part of the "Five in a Row" reading program that we're experimenting with. It's a really good book and the girls asked me to read it to them again and again, which is a good sign.

One of the "FIAR" lesson suggestions was to study the silhouettes in the story book and then make our own. So each girl shined a flashlight on the wall with her sister casting a shadow against a piece of paper, and I traced their silhouttes. Then they colored them, I cut them out, and they glued them to a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock. I told them that they could color them any way they wanted, but they could not draw actual facial features likes eyes, nose, and mouth.
