Sorting Stones

by Deb on October 10, 2009

A different sort of post today, I thought I’d try a photo-journal without lots of explanations.  These are taken as we play with and sort rocks.  You can learn all sorts of things incidentally!

This can be done anywhere, anytime, so it’s a great way to distract or redirect kids for 10 minutes.  It can also go as elaborate as you want – these photos went over several days as we came back to the rocks to play a bit more.

P.S _ I love the photo journal style. It took me only 5 seconds of looking at the pics to absorb your message.

Thanks! I’m glad I tried it – I know I have a tendency to write longer and longer things so I’m trying to cut down 🙂
