|After our character hunt (tour of the school) we found Brown Bear waiting on us. Each child had their picture made - which will go into a class book.|
|After hearing the story, we retold|
the story creating a story map.
We are beginning to work as a team!
|A future artist painting a green frog!|
|Working hard on the first day!|
|Finished product - our first story map complete with character labels and objects sorted by color.|
|We read the story, Go Away Big Green Monster (my personal favorite). |
This is our class Big Green Monster! Each child created and added his/her part of the story.
|After the story, we discovered how to make green. We painted one hand blue and the other yellow. Then, we rubbed our two hands together - GREEN! We put our handprints on a plate and used these to create our own monsters to take home!|
|On orange day, we mixed our magic red potion into our yellow pudding with our "magic wands" (popsicle sticks) and discovered ORANGE! Tasty!!|
|Each day we have found a magic shape waiting on us behind the poster paper. I rub the paper with a crayon to discover the shape for the day (crayon resist). Afterwards, each child builds his/her shape with popsicle sticks.|
|There is a circle hiding behind the black paper for Monday!|
|Learning to work in centers.|
