We read the story THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR by Eric Carle. He is the same author that wrote THE GROUCHY LADYBUG and we liked that one so well, we were sure to like this book as well! We did. We then got our our dotters and made caterpillar bodies according to the number we saw on the left side of our paper. This one is a toughie because sometimes it's hard to see where the dots start and stop. (and we get carried away with those dotters)
We also went to the library and the computer lab on Monday.
Wednesday we had a fun day reading and doing some fun activities around St. Patrick's Day and Leprechauns. While the class was at PE some leprechauns broke into our room and made a DISASTER out of our room! There were chairs on top of the tables, chairs turned over and toys and blocks and books and stuff EVERYWHERE when we got back to our room. Oh yes, and their gold dust was everywhere too! :) (actually, there's a good chance that your child has some of their gold dust clinging to their clothes this afternoon when you see them!) Luckily the leprechauns didn't visit until the END of the day since we were pretty well tapping out after that! We tried to make traps that we thought might catch some leprechauns.
So backing up the day to BEFORE the leprechauns visited...
We read a couple of leprechaun books and then did a fun sheet as a class listening for syllables in words that had to do with St. Patrick's Day. We first made a headband with cute leprechaun ears.
It was a very fun, exciting, pretty sure you'll have a leprechaun trap somewhere in your house tonight, day in TK. Enjoy the crazy that has been set in motion. They're only little for a short time! :)
