More Eric Carle
Today we read another one of Eric Carles books called This is Monday. It is a great book about the days of the week. We talked about the days of the week and reviewed the words yesterday and tomorrow. Kids this age still have a hard time figuring out these terms .
We also made a caterpillar collage the way that Eric Carle illustrates many of his books – with tissue paper. I always love this process and the way the colors mix and transform as you add the glue water mixer and layer the papers.
We also did a weekly reader that is a few years old. I hold on to those suckers because they dont always compliment what we are doing at the time they arrive. Today’s was a stretch — it was about lady bugs and we have an Eric Carle book about a lady bug…. hmmm
There was a new toy on the table that promotes fine motor skills and it was very popular.
