We tried out a new feltboard approach! Using grant money, I purchased a large tan piece of felt. From now on, we will hang this over the bookshelf to make our story area less distracting and a bigger area for felt stories! It worked very well today.
Hello, How are You? by Dr. Jean
Sea Creature Guessing Game - I made up mini riddles about different sea animals. I had dye-cut sea animals on the feltboard to help them guess the animal in the riddle. The animals were: dolphin, shark, sea turtle, seahorse, octopus, starfish, fish. Once they guessed the animal correctly, I moved it off to the side.
It is Time to Say Goodbye by Dr. Jean
Wave goodbye with your elbow
Wave goodbye with your ankle
Wave goodbye with your shoulder
Wave goodbye with your ear
Wave goodbye with your knee
Wave goodbye with your foot
Wave your hand and say "Goodbye."
