Today we read fun books about boxes! Our first book this morning was:
Not A Box, by Antoinette Portis
We also read: The Birthday Box, by Leslie Patricelli
We also learned a new song “I see a Box”.
I See a Box–song (sung to “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)Someone’s at the door. I hear knocks. (knock on something 3 times)I open up the door. I see a box. (shout hurray)I open up the box, but the box is full of locks. (open the box to show pictures of padlocks)
I really do not want a box of locks. (say: “Better luck next time!)
***Repeat the song with socks & rocks (pulling out pictures of each item) then sing:***
Someone’s at the door. I hear knocks. (knock on something 3 times)
I open up the door. I see a box. (shout hurray)
I open up the box. The box is full of blocks.
I really, really want a box of blocks! (clap and cheer)
For our craft, I gave the children plain white takeout boxes for them to decorate any way they wished. I supplied, glue, fabric scraps, foam shapes, and construction paper. Here are a few photos.a plain takeout box (before) he called this an “Easter basket birthday box” for his mom!
