For snack on Tuesday we had grapes and oatmeal raisin cookies, just like our mouse in the book.
I love Ava's "in action shot" in this picture ;)
For our math lesson on Tuesday we worked on completing patterns, I was really surprised on how well they all did with this. Great Job Busy Bees!!!
We also talked about sorting. We sorted cookies from largest to smallest, again they did great with this activity.
For our craft for Tuesday, I had them water color over an "M" taped on their paper, once they were done I peeled the tape off. I had intentions to have them turn their "M" into a mouse but we just ran out of time that day.
On Thursday I was able to snap a few pictures of the kids during free play in the morning. I had a water table out on my patio filled with rice that the kids played with. During recess we went to a open blacktop area in my complex where they could all run around (this is fenced in so it made it easy on me!). No pictures of that sorry :(
On Tuesday while the kids were playing outside in the morning, Margaret was nursing a baby doll, I had to snap a picture of that :) I thought it was so cute!!!
After we read our book on Thursday we talked about what letter mouse started with and what letter cookie stared with. We sorted "C" and "M" and the kids thought of words that stared with "C" and "M".
For our math lesson we talked about graphing and how we can track what happened the most and the least. We rolled a die and then marked what picture came up. This concept was a little bit of a reach but I think it was a good start.
For the art project we talked about what goes in a cookie to make it and then painted with salt. First they made designs with glue, sprinkled salt on the glue. After that we had food coloring and water and as they touch the colored water to the salt they could watch it move along the salt.
This week was great. I learned A LOT!!! All of the kids are so fun to have, each brings such a wonderful personality to the week. I loved book look time at the end. Everything could be wild and crazy and as soon as those books come out QUIET!! They had so much fun looking/reading those books.
