**This week we started our new unit in the reading Street curriculum. The next 4 books will be about transportation. We learned that there are 3 forms of transportation, land, water and air. The children did a great job classifying different modes of transportation I gave them, and put them in the appropriate category! ( car, train, skateboard, boat, plane, hot air balloon). Try this with them , they loved it!
This week Reading Street book was – Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort
"The seals on the bus go "errp, errp, errp" All through the town."
Two children and their parents board a city bus on their way to a party. At the next stop, who should get on but a group of seals, who holler "errp, errp, errp" at the top of their lungs. Each time the bus stops a new kind of animal joins the passengers and adds to the din, to the children's delight and the parents' annoyance. But when several hissing skunks want to come aboard, even the children cry "help! help! help!"
This funny version of the children's song "The Wheels on the Bus" had the children errping and roaring and honking along.
K- Song “Brick by Brick”
The letter of the week next week is A
Show and tell on Tuesday for A.
