What's Happening in Stoy PreK
Our author study last week on Laura Numeroff books was fun - and interesting!
We did all sorts of activities related to some of her best known books - art, math, movement - we had fun with it! First, we read "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" and then we counted and cut out cookies to match numbers on the page. We used retelling cards to put the story in sequence, and colored fun pictures of the characters in the story.
We even painted GIANT cookies :)
More Laura Numeroff!!
We continued with reading "If You Give A Moose A Muffin" and got into lots of activities using muffin tins ... counting objects up to 12 into programmed muffin tins, and playing a toss game to see what exercises were waiting for us in a big muffin tin! We were so hungry after that!!
We worked with mittens this week - coloring, cutting, matching, you name it!!
