>The rest of this week we are doing a ‘study” of Jan Brett books. The one we did today is called ” The Hat” It is a funny story about a little girl that is getting ready for winter and takes out all her ” woolens” to hang them on the line. We had a little discussion about “hanging things on the line.” I think for most people that is a thing of the past , but a few of the kids had a grandma that uses a clothesline ! I told the kids when I was a little girl a LONG time ago, that my mom mainly used the clothesline. Can I just say… Thank God for dryers!
Ok, back to the story. She drops one stocking on the ground and a curious hedgehog crawls in and it gets stuck on his head. As he greets all his animal friends they laugh at him. He explains it is to keep his head warm or dry. The “stocking cap” becomes all the rage as the animals raid the clothes line to get a hat for themselves.
The story gave us the opportunity to talk about the words curious and embaressing. This afternoon we will rhyme words with hat !
