This morning we read Time to Sleep and learned about where different kinds of animals and insects hibernate. We created some winter hibernation art that is displayed in our classroom.
During reading we read The Mitten. We discussed the characters and setting. We also discussed that the author, Jan Brett, did two jobs! She is the author AND the illustrator. We reviewed our 3 new fancy words, thrill, drooped, and joyous.
In math we acted out The Mitten. The kids stuffed little plastic animals into their gloves and mittens!
They then took a guess at how many were inside. Then all of the animals were dumped out, grouped into 10s and counted! They had a lot of fun!
