As part of our preparation for our upcoming class assembly, we revisited one of the children's recent favourite stories, "Five Little Monkeys Bake a Birthday Cake," by Eileen Christelow. We looked at the characters, setting, body of the story and ending to help the children think of their own class story. I am so proud of all the children for being thinkers and knowledgeable for creating a celebration story called, "The Party Adventure." Some of the children even volunteered to draw the pictures and be the story's illustrators. Starting this week, we will be working on acting out the story and even making simple props.
The children started working on their celebration collage with Miss Sarah. They first talked about the items and photos they brought in for their collage and discussed what items and photos they wanted to put in their collage. They will be working on their collage during art time for the next few weeks.
