Tuesday, April 14, 2014. "What's up, Doc?" Today's letter came from none other than Bugs Bunny!!! Bugs wanted us to do a rabbit story time. He gave us some books to read, an activity to do and a craft to make. The activity was "Bugs Says" (a bunny version of Simon Says).
March 10, 2014. Today's letter was from Geoffrey, the giraffe from Toys R Us! While the kids may initially have been disappointment that there were no toys with Geoffrey's letter, they soon saw that he had a wonderfully fun story time planned for them!
March 10, 2014. Cumulative rhymed text explains what might happen if you had a giraffe that stretched another half, put on a hat in which lived a rat that looked cute in a suit, and so on. Delightfully zany rhymes about a giraffe who accumulates some ridiculous things--like glue on his shoe and a bee on his knee--only to lose them again, one by one. Infectiously funny...a good nonsensical text and illustrations.
March 10, 2014. We had a "Wild Animal Race." The kids all guessed who they thought would win, then we rolled the dice. We kept on rolling until one animal's number came up six times. That animal was (drum roll, please...) the monkey!
March 3, 2014. Today is Read Across America day and today's letter came from The Cat in the Hat! We talked about Dr. Seuss, whose 110th birthday was yesterday. The Cat in the Hat gave us some great books to read, Dr. Seuss activities to do and a Dr. Seuss craft to make!!
March 3, 2014. Cat in the Hat toss game. We used balls instead of balloons.
