This week’s books were “The Giant Jumperee” and “Prince and Pirate.” Why were these books chosen for the Letter F? Well, the creature that declares to be a giant jumperee is a frog and Prince and Pirate are fish. Our flannel story was one of the kids’ favorites: Five Green and Speckled Frogs. The craft was coffee filter flowers. We decorated them and glued them to a sheet of paper, creating a 3-D effect. The activity table included sheets with a pig on them (a FARM animal) and the kids covered the pigs in “mud.”
We did several books this week, because one book went along with a flannel story I created. The first book was “Giraffes Can’t Dance.” The second book that had a flannel story to go with it was “Good night, Gorilla.” The kids had a great time participating in this story. The last book was “Goodnight Already.” Our craft was creating gumball machines and using dot markers to create the gumballs. Our activity table had a garden sorting activity. The kids sorted foods that you find in a garden vs. foods from a store (not natural).
