I was supposed to substitute teach today and yesterday. Instead, I am at home with my two kids aged four and six. In the morning, we completed the journal activity that was part of Day 1 of the 28 Days of Activities. After, the girls played and then started watercolor painting while I searched the internet for online educational resources to share with you all!
