Cock-a-Moo-Moo and Rooster Finger Puppets!

Day 2 of the week-The theme this week is Books! The letters of the week are x, Y, y. Learning Activity- I read the book Cock-a-Moo-Moo by Juliet Dallas-Conte', to Connor and Lauren. I cut a barn shape out of red construction paper and wrote - I am proud like rooster because . . . I can _____________. Connor and Lauren filled in the blank with something that they can do that they are proud of. Connor is proud that he can eat pizza big (this has been an ongoing power struggle in our house that was finally conquered!!) Lauren is proud that she can zip her coat. Then they both drew pictures of their statements. Again, they both wrote their own sentences - I am so proud of their writing and letter formation!! Source - Mailbox Magazine June/July 2008
Project - Rooster Finger Puppets -We received a finger puppet making kit at Christmas from my mom and dad. The kids have been wanting to make finger puppets for a long time,but we kept on forgetting to make them. Today we remembered and we made rooster finger puppets. They turned out ok - the kit really didn't have many options - we used our own feathers to complete the rooster!
Today's Learning Activities:
Numbers - writing numbers, counting, adding, subtracting
Letters - writing Uppercase Y
Writing - journal writing

  2. What adorable finger puppets. Great idea! I have some paper plate farm animal pages too that are really cute that you could do. I wish I could fax them to you. I read your email when I got home so I will send it in the morning from school. Have a blessed evening!
