We love literature!
We read the classic Rainbow Fish,
By Marcus Pfister
Then we made our own.
(This way you could do it for one child,or 25 children.)
Then Miss Sassy painted it beautifully.
We let it dry and glued on some bling!
While she was painting, baby H. got jealous.
I decided to let him paper towel paint.
I just scribbled on a paper towel, and gave him a wet paint brush.
As he painted, the colors bled into the towel.
He loved it!
In the Rainbow fish, he learns that if he gives away his favorite thing, and he is happier because he has friends.
Recently Miss Sassy's friend, K., gave her a princess scooter.
It was very special to her and hard for her to give away.
We decided to make a special rainbow fish for K.,
to say thank you.
It was fun to connect literature to art and to real life!
Here are the books we are reading this week:
