Oh how much fun we had learning all about Fairy Tales. We learned that Fairy Tales usually start with Once Upon A Time, they usually deal with magic, the characters are usually Queens, Kings, Princes, and Princesses , and sometimes the animals even talk!
On Monday we started our week by reading the 3 Little Pigs and we learned about ordinal positions like First, Second,Third or First, Next, and Last. We recreated the story by building the 3 Little Pigs houses.
On Tuesday we watched a video of There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly then we retold the story with our own little old lady.
|Not my exact, but some how I forgot to take a picture, but it is the same idea just different pictures|
On Wednesday we watched a video of The Gingerbread Man and created our own gingerbread cookies. We decorated out cookies with crayon icing and then water colored the brown which created a resist affect causing the crayon colors to really stand out.
On Thursday we watched Jack and The Beanstalk: A Fractured Fairy Tale which is a hilarious version of the original story. If you ever watched Rocky and Bullwinkle as a a kid you may have seen this and other fractured fairy tales and if you have never seen them I highly suggest you Google them because they are so funny! If you find them make sure you watch the Rapunzel one it is the best!
On Friday we watched Cinderella: A Fractured Fairy Tale. After watching the story we create our own Fairy Godmother wands and everyone described what they would wish for if thy had a fairy godmother.
For jobs this week we made quail Q's
We searched through uppercase and lowercase magic coins and colored in the letter when we found it
Sorted uppercase/lowercase letters and letters and numbers
Oh and one more thing! We can't forget that we learned that everyone always lives
HAPPILY EVER AFTER in Fairy tales!
