Buster The Dog!
Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is Books!
Learning Activity- (Source: The Mailbox Magazine) I placed a stuff kitten into a shoe box and had Connor and Lauren predict what might be in the box. Then I opened the box and removed the stuffed kitten. I introduced the kitten as Betty and I explained that Betty shows up in the story in a box just like the box I showed you. Then I took out the book, Buster by Denise Fleming, and read it aloud.
Project - Paper Buster - I cut shapes from brown construction paper to make Buster. Connor and Lauren glued the shapes together to make Buster. They looked at the illustrations in the book as a guide. Then they drew a face on Buster! Materials Needed - brown construction paper, scissors, glue, black marker
