We ended our Reduce, Reuse, Recycle unit with a book titled If Kids Ran the World by Leo & Diane Dillon. After reading, the children told us what they would do if they ran the world.
On Monday, we said goodbye to our friend Sania. Her family is moving to Florida. We will miss her very much. Thank you to Sania’s family for bringing in munchkins for us to enjoy on her last day of school. We made Sania a card & signed all of our names to tell her how much we’ll miss her.
On Tuesday, we read Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? Eric Carle is the author & illustrator. At the beginning of the book there is a beautiful illustration with blue, yellow, green & black lines. The children painted at the easel with the same colors trying to depict the picture. The results are fabulous!
We changed over our sensory table for our farm unit. It is filled with popcorn kernels, coffee grounds, shredded brown paper & lots of farm animals. We are loving it. We also put our barn & farm animals in the small world center, added tractors & shovels to the sand table & we’re using flowers, stems, craft sticks & farm animals with our play dough. Lots of creative exploration & learning happening this month! Check out our FB page for pictures!
On Friday we listened to the Star Wars soundtracks while playing as well as during our Friday dance party! Princess Leia was our morning helper!
