I Took the Moon for a Walk!

Day 3 of the week-The theme this week is Books! The letters of the week are x, Y, y. Learning Activity- I read the title of the read aloud out loud to Connor and Lauren and asked if they think this story takes place during the day or at night. Then I had them predict what happens when the boy takes the moon for a walk. Finally, I read the book I Took the Moon for a Walk by Carolyn Curtis, to Connor and Lauren. After the read aloud, I had Connor and Lauren cut out a manila circle moon. They glued the the moon to a sheet of construction paper labeled with the writing prompt "If I took the moon for a walk." Connor and Lauren completed the sentence and wrote their own sentences down! Finally, the illustrated their words. (Connor's sentence - If I took the moon for a walk, we would play Candy Land.) (Lauren's sentence-If I took the moon for a walk, we would go to the park.)
