The first day of spring was yesterday (although it’s hard to tell by the weather!), so I thought it would be fun to talk about grass growing and other nature related topics.
“In the Tall, Tall Grass” by Denise Fleming
“A Fawn in the Grass” by Joanne Ryder
“Sheep Take a Hike” by Nancy Shaw
We also used a fun puppet from Folkmanis of a caterpillar that could turn inside out, into a butterfly.
Our art project today was to cut a half sheet of green construction paper along one side in a fringe-y manner to resemble grass. This was an attempt to do more process-oriented work that would help the younger kids develop scissor skills. As always, the creativity displayed was impressive.
