Kiwis and Koalas…..

December 3, 2011

We had such a fun time this week learning all about the letter Kk.  We got to do so many fun and creative projects too.  We finished out the week with Koala bears.  We read the story “Koala and the Flower” by Mary Murphy  and made a cute and happy koala bear out of paper plates.  Miss Courtney got in on the K fun and made the Kiwi fruits with the children in the afternoon too!  They turned out so cute!  During circle time we also danced to “Koala Bear, Koala Bear”.  It was a fun and creative week.

Kites….

December 1, 2011

On Wednesday we continued learning all about the letter Kk and kites!  We read a book all about kites, sang a song about kites and sorted keys too during center time.

I Like Kites

(to the tune of Three Blind Mice)

I like kites.

I like kites.

They fly high.

They fly high.

They keep on spinning ’round and ’round.

Sometimes they even touch the ground.

They fly through the air without a sound.

Oh, I like kites!

Three Little Kittens…..

Tuesday we learned all about the letter Kk and kittens.  We read the story “Three Little Kittens” by Jerry Pinkney, this is a beautifully illustrated story that tells the tale of the three mischievous kittens and their mittens.  To go with the story we made kittens and mittens out of paper plates.  We also started our winter bulletin board and added snowmen and “Happy Feet” penguins.  The penguins were made out of the children’s feet, which was a tickley experience!

The Three Little Kittens

Three little kittens,
They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost.
What! Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,
They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
See here, see here,
Our mittens we have found.
What! Found your mittens,
You darling kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have some pie.

The three little kittens,
Put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
Oh, mother dear,
We greatly fear
Our mittens we have soiled.
What! Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
They began to sigh.

The three little kittens,
They washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
Oh mother dear,
Look here, look here,
Our mittens we have washed.
What! Washed your mittens,
You’re such good kittens.
I smell a rat close by!
Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
Hush! Hush! Hush!
I smell a rat close by.
