Today we started a new lesson from The Itty-Bitty Bookworm. Our book is called Thumper's Fluffy Tail. At first Caden wasn't interested but as I kept reading he enjoyed the cute story.
- Vocabulary cards for the day were the "forest" and "butterfly". We talked about what do you see in the forest? What types of animals live in the forest? With the butterfly card I asked if they fly or crawl?
- Shape and color cards-We hung up the yellow balloon with our green balloon from last lesson. Caden told me that he wanted blue next.
- Bunny ears- While making the bunny ears hat Caden insisted on gluing the bunny ears where he wanted. I had to hold myself back and let him put them where he wanted. He glued cotton balls on the ears and we talked about how a bunny would feel by touch if we got to pet him. We also colored the ears. He loves markers, not interested in crayons. I think he likes markers better because he gets to pull the tops on and off.
- Bunny Puppet- Caden enjoyed making the face of the bunny. I was impressed that he put everything in the correct spot, even the whiskers.
We also had some animal and vehicles cards, we talked about what sounds they make. That was pretty cute watching him make the sounds.
