Polar Bears and the Alphabet
One of the games we played today was the Polar Bear Walk. I placed letters around the room and a few orange fish. As the music played the children walked around the letters. When the music stopped the would freeze where they were. If it was a fish ( like polar bears eat ) they would hang on to it. If it was a letter they would tell me what the letter was and if they knew the sound.
We read ” Polar Bear Polar Bear What do you Hear ? ” today. This book introduces a lot of new words as it talks about the animal sounds. Thankfully Tim , Makenzie’s dad . came in just in time to demonstrate what a hippopotamus sounds like. 🙂
The new block remained an exciting place to be.
