Quack, Quack

Today was "quacky" sort of day!! The learning box question today was, "What does a duck sound like? What does a goose sound like?" The kids really enjoyed this and it gave us a chance to be silly and make funny animal noises. We read Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown and sang 5 little ducks.

We made our own ducks which was great practice cutting and gluing.

We reviewed our ABC's, Color's, and Shape's. The kids are learning to take turns and raise their hand to answer a question. We also practice sitting in our own 'special spots' and keeping our hands in our laps.

Red and blue were reviewed and we colored this worksheet. The kids held up either a red or blue crayon to match the appropriate picture. We had a red apple and barn, and a blue dolphin and blueberries.

Before playtime started we played a game of duck, duck, goose. This was so fun to see how many times they would run the circle before they actually sat down in the spot. This will be a game we can practice and perfect. After all, this is the beginning of learning a game that your kids will undoubtedly play for years to come!!! Practice makes perfect. See you Thursday.
