Group Time Week of July 25, 2011

I can't believe it is almost August!!!  This week our book was "If You Give a Pig a Pancake" by Laura Joffe Numeroff.  We explored the story through art, music and movement. Using their creative skills,the children made pig masks complete with curly tails on their hamhocks.  Wearing our masks, we played song games but the hit was the "Pig Hokey Pokey".  A game of "What Time is it Mr. Wolf" ended group time with a very hungry wolf chasing the little pigs.

Group Time - Week of July 18

This week our book study is "Honey, Honey, Lion" by Jan Brett.  We learned how bees collect nectar from the flowers.  Being bees, the children communicated to the other bees through a waggle dance to indicate they found some flowers.





 Once the bees found the nectar, they returned to the hive to fill the honeycombs with honey.  The children have asked to have a honey taste test at the end of this week.
