Friday: Celebrate Spring

Mar 30, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Marissa helped do the calendar today because Andrew was not here.  She added the number to the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  We all reviewed our Spanish and Sign language words. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: Today the children told us everything they know about the season of spring.  Spring is the season that follows winter.  The weather gets warmer in the spring.  In places where it snows, spring is when the snow begins to melt.  Fun Facts:  In the spring, tiny tree frogs called spring peepers begin to chirp.  Pollen from ragweed and timothy grass cause people to sneeze. In the Midwest, spring is a time for tornadoes.  Black bears and other animals end their winter hibernation.  In the US, monarch butterflies lay their eggs on milkweed plants.  Hummingbirds court in the spring. 

Visual Art:  Discussed:  What reminds you of spring time?  Many animals are born in the spring.  Baby animals often remind others that it is spring time.  We looked at the Spring Chick Art that we made this week in Centers.

Physical Science:  Discussed:  How do you think spring smells?  Miss Corrie took the children outside for a walk.  They were to smell the air, feel the ground, the leaves and the buildings.  When they came back in, we discussed what they smelled and felt.  We discussed how it felt and smelled different than the winter time. 

Emergent Reading:   Discussed:  What words make you think of spring?  Explained that the word “spring” can also mean to jump.  The children practiced springing up and down.  I then had everyone crouch down and if I said a word that reminds them of Spring then they jumped up! If I said a word that did not remind them of spring then they stayed crouched down.  We did this several times until everyone was tired.

Dramatic Play:  Discussed:  What do you do when you wake up?  Many animals sleep through the winter in very cold places.  They wake up in the spring.  I asked the children to pretend to be a sleeping animal such as a bear, turtle, or fox.  I held up the winter weather card and told them that this meant they were hibernating.  Everyone pretended to be snoring and sleeping.  I then held up the sun weather card and told them it was now spring.  Everyone stretched and made animal noises while they woke up and the started searching for food.  We did this a couple times.

Numbers:  Discussed:  What bugs you about spring? When the weather gets warmer many bugs begin to wake up, too.  Each child made finger prints with paint on construction paper.  They turned those prints into bugs by adding legs and antenna. 

Show and Tell:   Everyone was to bring in something that makes them think of spring.  Each child came up one at a time and discussed their item in detail. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside play or Lego’s depending on the weather.  

Thursday: Tomato

Mar 29, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish. Andrew added the number to the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  He reviewed the Spanish and Sign language words. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what we learned about peas.  The children told me everything they know about a Tomato today.  Tomatoes are fruits but are commonly used like a vegetable in cooking.  Fun Facts:  Tomatoes gain weight as they ripen, even after being picked.  They are the most popular ‘vegetables’ in Australia.  In the Victorian era, anyone seen eating a tomato in public was branded a ‘wolf’ and bared from attending choir practice.  They have become an essential ingredient in an array of cuisines, adding colour, juice and flavour to many dishes. 

Health and Safety:  Discussed:  What do you eat that is made from tomatoes? We discussed how I have to wash my hands before I cook anything.  We made a tomato snack this morning.  I took bread and put pizza sauce on it.  We then added shredded cheese to the top and put it in the broiler.  The kids loved this treat and wanted more.

Learning Approach:   Discussed:  What would you do with a rotten tomato?  Many people throw tomatoes that are rotting to the edges of their garden to attract the insects, worms and other pests away from the good tomato plants.  We looked at each one of our Little Learning Cards and discussed each in detail:  14, diamond, Ff, 15, Hh, Kk, orange, brown.

Emergent Writing:  Discussed:  What can we find in a garden?  I made a list of all the things we learned about this month about gardens.  The children then each took a page for the class book and drew a picture about something they learned about this month.  They then brought me their picture and told me what they wanted to write about.  They each told me things that they learned this month.

Emergent Writing:   Discussed:  How can string help in a garden?  Many tomato plants get heavy from the tomatoes and droop.  Many people tie the plants to a stick to help them stand up straight.  We looked at our Journals.  Discussed how to match the letter with the object that begins with that letter.  We will use string to do this in afternoon centers. 

Show and Tell:  Each child brought in a picture or food item that is made from tomatoes.  They came up one at a time and showed us their item and discussed.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play Center 2: Little Learning Cards-  The children will use scissors to cut the cards apart.  They will then color the pictures.  Center 3: My Little Journal-  the children will go to the back page and use string to tape onto the letter and put them to the matching word that starts with that letter.

Wednesday: Peas

Mar 28, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Andrew put the number on the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  He reviewed all the Spanish and Sign Language words. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what we learned about beans.  Today the children told me everything they know about Peas.  Peas grow in pods.  Fun Facts:  The United Kingdom is the largest producer of peas that are used for freezing, in Europe.  One serving of freshly frozen peas has more Vitamin C than two large apples.   

Visual Art:  Discussed:  How do you think you make vegetable soup?  We reviewed how we made the soup yesterday.  We looked at the art project that they will be making in afternoon centers.

Social Skills:  Discussed:  What is your favorite gardening job?  We discussed all the jobs in a garden from planting and watering to weeding and harvesting.  We discussed our garden and how we would be planting it in a month or so. 

Patterns:  Discussed:  What do you think is bigger than a pea? We looked at a pea pod pattern and looked at large pea circles and smaller pea circles.  Discussed how many large peas would fit in the pea pod pattern?  We then put the large peas on the pea pod and discussed who got the closest estimate.  We did this with the small pea circles, also.  I then used the pea pod pattern to measure things and see how many pea pods long they were. 

Emergent Writing:  Discussed:  How can you draw four peas in a pod?  We found the page 16 in their My Little Journals.  We discussed how to draw four pea pods and then put four peas in each pod.  We counted them and got to 16.  We then discussed how to make the number 16.  Each child came up one at a time and practiced writing the number 16. 

Tumble Bus Day:  See the form by the Sign-in book for the activities the kids did today on the bus.  No tumble bus next week due to Spring Break.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside play  Center 2: My Little Journal-  The children will practice writing the number 16.  They will then draw 4 pea pods.  They will use green paint and the tip of their fingers to make 4 peas in each pod.  Center 3:  Pea Soup Art-  The children will use pictures of vegetables, split peas and alphabet pasta to glue onto their large soup pot pattern. 

Tuesday: Bean

Mar 27, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Andrew put the number on the calendar, discussed the pattern and the weather.  He found the day of the week in Spanish and reviewed our Spanish and Sign Language words.

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what we learned about Potatoes.  Today the children told me all that they know about beans.  Fun Facts:  Bean plants are among some of the fastest growing plants in the world.  These plants grow and mature at a faster pace.  In fact, it takes roughly a month and a half for these plants to germinate from seeds, grow and get harvested. 

Health and Safety:  Discussed:  Which vegetable do you want to put in a soup?  We made our own vegetable soup today.  We added carrots, peas, celery, onion, potatoes, and green beans into a pot.  I then added chicken broth and salt and pepper.  We cooked this and ate some of it with our lunches.  We discussed the different variations we could have for our soup. 

Emergent Writing:  Discussed:  What would you grow in your garden? We looked at the Postcard that they will be making in afternoon centers.  We read the note on the card that Miss Corrie wrote to us and looked at her picture.

Learning Approach:   Discussed:  What do you like to do by yourself?  What do you prefer to do in a group?  Each child came up one at a time and rolled the Brain Box.  Whatever side landed up, the child did that activity.  Brain Box activities:  hop 14 times, buzz 15 times, make a diamond with  your friend, find something brown in the room, wiggle 16 times, and walk to something orange in the room. 

Patterns:   Discussed:  How long is a green bean?  Most green beans are several inches long, like long fingers.  We had several different sizes of paper green beans and some of them were thick and some were thin.  We compared two at a time and discussed which was the thickest and thinnest.  After we compared several , we took all the green beans and put them in order from Longest to shortest. 

Show and Tell:  The children each brought in beans.  They came up one at time and showed us the beans that they brought and we discussed. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: Postcard-  The children drew a picture of what they would plant in their garden.  They then wrote a letter to a family member. Center 3:  Spring Chick Art-  The children will paint a paper plate yellow.  They will then cut out feet and a beak to glue onto the plate.  They will stick on eyes and a feather to create their baby chick.

Monday: Potato

Mar 26, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Andrew is the new calendar and meteorologist for this week.  He added all the numbers to the calendar and discussed the pattern.  He told us the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  Andrew reviewed all the Spanish and Sign Language words.

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what we learned about carrots on Friday.  The children told me everything they know about Potatoes.  Potatoes are root vegetables like carrots.  Keeping potatoes in the dark avoids ‘greening’, which may make them poisonous. Marie Antoinette wore potato blossoms in her hair.  Potatoes are a member of the nightshade family, Solanaceae.  The nightshade family has many members which are poisonous but potatoes aren’t.  Potatoes are also called ‘spuds’, ‘taities’ and ‘praties’.

Emergent Reading:  Discussed:  What would you use to dig for potatoes?  We looked at a new word family “ig”.  I wrote the letters on the board and we discussed their sound.  I then placed a “d” in front of “ig”.  The children sounded out the new word “dig”.  I continued changing the first letter to make new words.  We discussed how the ‘ig’ sound never changed. 

Physical Science:   Discussed:  What looks like a potato?  We discussed things like; rocks, nuts, toys, etc. that can look like a potato. 

Social Skills:  Discussed:  How do you like to eat potatoes?  We discussed all the ways we can eat potatoes.  I then wrote down 4 ways to eat potatoes and we took a vote.  I marked an X in the column that the children picked.  We discussed more and less.  Columns: mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, potato salad and french fries.  I made the kids some potato chips out of a real potato by slicing them very thin and putting in the microwave.  We then played “Hot Potato”, by sitting in a circle and passing around a potato quickly before it burned us.  When the song stopped the person with the potato threw it in the pot. 

Physical Science:   Discussed:  What do you think a potato feels like?  We passed around a real potato and discussed everything we felt.  Explained that the bumps and dips on the potato are called “eyes”.  The potato eyes will eventually sprout and grow roots.  We looked at the art project the kids will be making in afternoon centers.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: Sprouting Potato Art-  The children took a paper potato and glued on shredded paper as sprouts.  They then felt the texture of their potato.  

Friday: Carrot

Mar 24, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Ben added the number to the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish. He reviewed all our Spanish and Sign Language words. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: The children told Miss Corrie everything they know about carrots.  Carrots are a root vegetable. Fun Facts:  Carrots were one of the earliest vegetables grown by man.  They are related to parsley.  In the past their leaves were used to decorate the hats of royalty.  Doctors say that they improve vision, especially at night because of our very high level of vitamin A (carotene). 

Emergent Writing:  Discussed:  How big do you think a carrot is?  Carrots can be very small, like the size of your pinkie, or they can be very large like your arm.  We reviewed the color orange and how we made carrots on our Journal page this week during afternoon centers.

Shapes:   Discussed:  How could we cook carrots?  Carrots can be eaten raw, sliced and baked, boiled in a soup or grated to make carrot cake.  We put the pieces of the puzzle in a bowl.  Invited one child to come up and gently stir then remove one piece of the puzzle and place it in a cake pan.  We continued this until all pieces are in the pan and we worked together to assemble the puzzle.  We discussed the picture on the puzzle.

Gross Motor:  Discussed:  What have you pulled from the ground? We were unable to go outside and practice pulling weeds and grass due to the rain.  Movement:  The children stood very tall with their hands to their sides.  Then they were to bend their knees slightly and pretend to be a carrot under ground.  The children jumped up and reached their hands to the sky and pretended to be a carrot that was pulled from the ground.  We then sang a song to the tune of “Happy and You Know It”.. “If it’s a carrot and you know it, pull it up.” (repeat) “…..then if you will see the color orange. If it’s a carrot and you know it pull it up.”

Visual Art:   Discussed:  What color is a carrot?  Many carrots are orange but there are also red, yellow and purple carrots.  We looked at our Carrot Color Craft that we made the other day in afternoon centers.

Show and Tell:  The children each brought Birthday cards for Max and Rudy.  We discussed how the boys have the same birthday because they are twins.  Each child got to come up and sit on Miss Corrie’s lap and read their birthday cards. It was also PJ day today so we looked at all their pajama’s.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1:  Lego’s 

Thursday: Toad

Mar 24, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Ben added the number to the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  He reviewed our Spanish and Sign Language words.

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We  reviewed what we learned about bees. Today the children told me all that they know about Toads.  A toad is an amphibian.  This means it begins life underwater and later changes to live on land and breathes air.  A toad looks like a frog.  Fun Facts: Toads do not need to live near water to survive.  They have rough, dry, bumpy skin.  Toads have a wider body and lower, football shaped eyes.  They have shorter, less powerful hind legs.  Toads will run or take small hops rather than jump.  They do not have many predators.  Toad’s skin lets out a bitter taste and smell that burns the eyes or nostrils of its predators, much like a skunk does.  And neither frogs nor toads will give you warts! That is just a myth. 

Speaking:  Discussed:  What do you think toads like about a garden?  Toads like dark, cool places.  The plants provide shade and attract insects for the toad to eat.

Global Citizenship:  Discussed:  In Japan they believe toads and frogs bring fortune and good luck.  They put toad statues in their gardens.  Explained that gardens are considered an art form in Japan and are celebrated.  We discussed how we will be doing our garden in a month or two.  We found Japan on the World Map.

Logic:  Discussed:  Which garden visitors do you like the best? I had the Charting Choices Cards and we looked at the pictures: bird, toad and bee.  I placed the picture cards in different areas of the room.  I read a question card for one child and that child had to go to the picture that answered the question for them.  We did this until each child was sitting by one of the picture cards.  Questions:  Hop to your favorite creature.  Crawl to the creature that scares you.  Run to the creature that you think is funny.  We then counted how many children were at each card and discussed more and less. 

Social Skills:  Discussed:  What have you felt that is bumpy?  A toad’s skin is rough, dry and bumpy- not like the slippery, smooth skin of a frog.  We took a piece of paper and took it outside.  We sat on the driveway and drew a garden picture on the driveway.  We discussed how the crayon and pencil looked bumpy from the driveway. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: Toad Bumps-  The children took the picture that we drew on the drive way and glued a frame to it.  Center 3: Carrot Colors-  The children took two paper carrots and started sewing them together with yarn.  They stuffed paper in between them.  They designed a carrot top with green paper. 

Wednesday: Bee

Mar 21, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Ben put the number on the calendar, found the day of the week in Spanish and discussed the weather.  He reviewed all our Spanish and Sign language words.

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed our facts about a mole that we learned yesterday.  Today the children told me all that they know about bees.  A bee is an insect that helps pollinate plants in a garden. Pollination is needed for flowers to make seeds and for fruit to grow.  Fun Facts:  Bees live together in nests called hives.  A hive may contain as many as 20,000 bees during the summer months.  Every honeybee has a special job within the hive.  Workers, who are sterile females, are responsible for tending the hive and finding food.  Male bees are called drones.  Their sole responsibility is to mate with a new queen.  The hive contains only one queen bee.  Her job is to lay eggs for the next generation of bees. Honeybees use the nectar they gather from flowers to make honey.  The honey they make in the summer helps them to stay alive through the cold winter.  The bright yellow and black coloring of the honeybee serves to warn off predators.  Only female honeybees have a stinger, which is located at the end of her abdomen. If anyone bothers the hive, honeybees can swarm out together and use their stingers to attack.  When a honeybee flies to a flower looking for nectar, pollen from the blossom sticks to the fuzzy hairs on her body.  When she visits the next flower, the pollen rubs off, pollinating the flower.  If it were not for honeybees performing pollination, many fruit trees would not produce fruit. 

Emergent Reading:  Discussed:  To where would you fly if you were a bee? We looked at the Rebus Reader and discussed the different pictures.  I read the story to the children but they helped me read the pictures.  I then asked them questions after we read the story to see who was paying attention.  Questions:  Where did the bee go visit? What colors did the bee see? What was in the garden that was that color?  Why did the bee want to go back to her hive?

Health and Safety:  Discussed:  What sweet foods do you like to eat?  Bees make honey.We looked at our Food Group Place-mat.  We discussed all the food groups that we saw on the place-mat.  We found out that there was no place for sweets on the place-mat.  We discussed that the reason for this is because sweets are not healthy.  Our body does not need sweets to survive and stay healthy. 

Visual Art:   Discussed:  How many bees do you think live in a hive?  20,000- 60,000 bees can live in one hive.  How many people live in your town?  We looked at the craft we will be making in afternoon centers.

Numbers:  Discussed:  Where does the bee keep the pollen from flowers?  Bees drink nectar (sugar water from flowers) and gather pollen (powder in the flower).  They store the pollen in bags on their back legs.  We looked at the hands-on number 6 and 1.  The children told me how to make the number 16 with those two numbers.  We then counted the 16 diamonds. 

Show and Tell:   Each child brought 16 items.  Each child came up one at a time and counted out all their 16 items.  If the child brought too many or too few then we discussed what we needed to do to make the bag have 16 items.

Tumble Bus Day:  See the form by the sign in sheet to find out the activities they did today.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside play  Center 2: Bee Finger Puppets-  The children made 5 bees and added stripes and wings to them.  They then used bubble wrap to dip into paint and make prints on the bee hive poem.  We acted out the poem in morning lessons.  

Tuesday: Mole

Mar 20, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Ben put the number on the calendar, discussed the weather, and found the day of the week in Spanish.  He reviewed all our Spanish and Sign language words.

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what they learned about crows.  Today the children told me everything they know about moles.  A mole lives underground and digs tunnels.  Fun Facts:  Moles mostly live underground in pasture, woodland and gardens; but they don’t like to live in high moors or mountains and acid soils.  A male is about 6 inches from head to body.  The female is slightly smaller. They live up to 3 years.  The saliva of a mole contains a toxin that paralyzes earthworms and insects.  The mole has small eyes with poor eyesight but their sense of touch is excellent.  The main predator of a mole is the Owl.  You call baby moles, pups.  Moles are almost entirely carnivorous; however, it is true that moles can indirectly kill plants.  The mole will scrape the dirt away from the roots in search for food, thereby removing the plants source of nourishment.

Social Skills:  Discussed:  How long does a mole stay awake?  Moles work for four hours and then they sleep for four hours.  I showed the children how to make a trail with masking tape.  Each child took a piece of masking tape to continue the trail that the mole was digging.  I then had a child start on the line and  counted to 4 while they crawled slowly then they fell asleep.  I added toys as obstacles for them to crawl around.  We continued this for each child to have a turn crawling through the tunnels.  They could only crawl till I got to 4 and then they would fall asleep.  When I counted again they would wake up and crawl again until they got to the end of the line!

Emergent Reading:  Discussed:  How do you think moles help gardens? Moles actually help gardens by bringing air to the soil for roots. They eat the larvae of bugs that might be harmful, but don’t eat the plants.  We looked at the “Ff” flowers and discussed the letter and sound.  The children told me words that start with F and we also looked in the dictionary to read all the F words. 

Numbers:  Discussed:  What would you do if you had an extra thumb?  Did you know moles have an extra thumb to help them dig holes?  We had moles with numbers on them: 15, 14, 16, 9, 11, 10, 4, 6, 5.  We looked at each mole and the children told me the number they saw.  I placed the moles face down on the floor.  We had different strips with a certain number of holes on each strip.  I asked a child to come up and pick one card and tell us the number.  They then had to add the correct strips together to count the holes to match the mole they drew.  We did this until each child had a chance to pick a mole and find the matching hole strips. 

Emergent Writing:   Discussed:  What do you think a mole does in his tunnel?  Moles eat, sleep, take care of babies and have fun in their tunnels.  I showed the children how to form the number 15 and write the letter “Ff”.  Each child came up one at a time to practice making the F,f, and 15 on the wipe off board.  We looked at their journal pages where they will make a mole follow the tunnels of the Capital F shape. 

Show and Tell: Discussed:  Each child brought in an item that starts with the letter “F”.  They came up one at a time and discussed their items that they brought. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: Pocket Counters-  Each child got their own moles with numbers and strips of holes.   They had to practice their cutting skills and cut them apart.  Center 3:  My Little Journal-  The children will practice writing their capital and lowercase letter F.  They will then make one Giant F and cut out an oval.  They will tape it to a string and that is their mole.  It can follow the lines of the giant F. 

Monday: Crow

Mar 19, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish. Ben is the new calendar and meteorologist this week.  He added the numbers to the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish. Reviewed our Spanish and Sign Language words. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We reviewed what we learned about rabbits. The children told me what they know about crows.  A crow is a blackbird that is often found in gardens.  Some people make scarecrows to keep the crows from eating the seeds and harvest.  Fun Facts:  Crows are usually black in color all over, but some species are not totally black and are found with white, gray or brown coloring around the neck or the beak.  Crows are considered to be very intelligent creatures and have existed since a long time due to their ability to adapt to changing situations.  They belong to the corvid family of birds and are highly adaptable to any kind of situation.  The average number of eggs laid by the female is 4-7.  Both male and female take turns to guard the nest and the male takes the initiative to incubate them.  Crows usually have a single mate for life unless one dies or is captured. 

Dramatic Play:  Discussed:  What might happen if a crow landed on the beanstalk?  We looked at the book that we read “Jack and the Beanstalk”.  We discussed different things that could happen.  The children tried to invent a story with Jack and the crow.  They had difficulty with this.  Discussed if the crow was helpful or harmful?  Was the crow friends with Jack or the Giant?

Physical Science:  Discussed:  What do you estimate as the amount of seeds in an apple or tomato?  We had several different produce to cut open and look in to see if they had seeds or not.  We counted the seeds we found if we could.  We then got to eat each produce.  We had strawberries, tomato, orange, apple, peach, lime, etc.

Shapes:  Discussed:  What do you think a crow eats?  Crows are omnivores.  This means they will eat just about anything plant or animal.  We had a crow card and kept it out.  We discussed what we could feed the crow.  I placed the cards face down on the floor. I picked a child to turn over a card and tell the food they turned over.  We took turns turning over the cards.  We had to collect food for the crow before the scarecrow scared them away.  Each child flipped a card until someone turned the scarecrow card over.  We counted the total number of food cards collected before we got to the scarecrow.

Emergent Writing:  Discussed:  Crows like to sleep near many friends.  Do you sleep by yourself, with siblings or parents?  We went to our Little Journal page with the number 15.  We counted to 15.  Each child came up one at a time and practiced writing the number 15. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: My Little Journal- They practiced writing the number 15.  They then drew a large tree branch on their page.  They then drew 15 crows onto the tree branch.  Center 3:  My Little Journal-  We looked at the orange page in the journal and colored the bird orange.  Each child then dipped their finger into paint to make a long carrot.  They tore bits of green paper for the tops of the carrots.
