Our theme today was FISH. We read two great fish books — classic Swimmy by Leo Lionni and Trout Trout Trout by April Pulley Sayre.
Trout Trout Trout was a really fun book to read aloud — it reads as a chant with lots of rhythm. It is also a great book to introduce readers to a whole host of unusual fish that most people probably have not heard about or even seen. There is an inforative section in the back of the book that talks in more depth about each of the unusual fish featured in the book.
We practice couting from 1-5 and from 5-1 with our felt board activity — 5 Little Fishies. And of course we sang and grooved to some great Greg and Steve tunes.
Next week’s theme is SLEEP.
