Today, we continued to read stories from Clara Dillingham Pierson's "Among the Farmyard People". Today's story was called "The Oxen Talk with the Calves". I was so surprised how much scientific information is packed into these stories. It told in good detail how the cow digests it's food, that it has four "stomachs" (now considered 4 digestive compartments contained in one stomach) and what it means to "chew cud". Lillie Anna had a great time demonstrating how the cow sounds when it "regurgitates" it's food. The story also had a great moral to it as well. The Baldwin Project has all of Mrs. Pierson's books on animals and they are delightful to say the least. We made a cow puppet out of paper plates.
Lillie played two computer games, one for reading practice and one for math.
