LearnSigns 013: Nature

Join me in my back yard this time to learn some nature signs. My current office/video studio is a corner of my unfinished basement. Last week I started doing some work to build walls so that I don’t freeze to death this winter while trying to make videos for the website. I enjoyed being outside to shoot this video, but I had to hurry before the sun came up and blinded me. Because of hurrying to get ready and shoot the video before the sun came up, I just grabbed a shirt and ran out the door. It wasn’t until we started editing the video before I realized that I was wearing the same shirt as I was in the last lesson.

Rain, snow and rainbows are included in this list of nature words.

Words learned in this lesson:

  • Nature
  • Tree
  • Flower
  • Sun
  • Moon
  • Star
  • Earth
  • World
  • Dirt
  • Land, Property
  • Rain
  • Snow
  • Rainbow
  • Animal

Project: Using the information you learned in lesson 11, write out the description for the word GRASS in your area. This is a word that changes quite a bit from region to region in the United States. Write your description in the comments below.

This was actually the second take of this video. There were two major problems with the first video. I didn’t have something set right on my audio recorder and the sound was awful. The second problem was the swarm of mosquitoes that attacked my bald head. I did a good job of not swatting at them the whole time I was recording, but by the time the video was done there were several that could be seen feasting on my skull.

The video above is captioned for those needing captioning. Be sure to click on the [CC] logo on the video player to see the captions.
