Learning Activity- I read the book Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox to Connor and Lauren. Then, Connor and Lauren each chose a color. I cut a construction paper cloud usingtheir chosen color. They glued the shape to the form sheet (Mailbox Magazine February/March 2009). Next, they decorated the shape so it resembled a sheep from the bookand named the color of their sheep and where their sheep might be. They wrote the information on the provided spaces.
