Our works of Art!

This week we have been very busy working on some super fun projects. We learned yesterday about how Eric Carle creates the artwork for his books (such as "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"). So today we created our own works of art Eric Carle style! They turned out amazing.

We also have been working on the life cycle of a butterfly over the past 2 weeks. So today we created some life cycles to put in the hall.

I have to say we are having a very great time this year!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

We have been working very hard in reading this year.  We have been working on Nursery Rhymes the last 2 weeks.  Looking for our popcorn words and the characters, as well as setting and events that are going on in the story. 

My personal favorite nursery rhyme is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  The activities we did in here were just so much fun!  We started by reading the story and then putting a bunch of stars in a black night sky.  Then we all laid down on the reading run and looked at the constellations in the sky above us (we used our iPad for this!).  Then we learned how to connect the stars to make our very own constellations.    We have some very creative little minds in this room.  Here are just a few samples of our very own constellations!

This is a teddy bear.

This is a rocket with flames and all!
