T is for Tiger and celebrating President’s Day…

Today we learned all about the letter Tt and tigers.  We read a book that gave some great facts about the tiger; what they eat, where they live, what they look like.  We sang a song and then made a craft too.  We also incorporated Presidents Day a little bit into our day as well.  We discussed what the president’s job is, read a poem about Lincoln and Washington and made Lincoln masks and presidential badges too.

What I Saw at the Zoo

Oh I went to the zoo and what did I see?

I saw a great big tiger, lookin’ at me

He went Raaar, raaaar, He went Raaar, raaar

He went Raaaar, raaar, raar, And that’s what he said to me!

Celebrating President’s Day!

Presidential Poem

February is the month

For us to celebrate

The birthdays of two famous men

Who make our country great.

George Washington was our first president;

He was the best that he could be.

Abraham Lincoln was a kind president

Who made every American free.

The Lincoln masks that we made today and Prayer Bear modeling it!

This mask was made out of a paper plate with the middle cut out.  Then we glued a black paper top hat and cotton balls to it to make the beard.

Slithery Snakes….

Today we learned all about snakes!  Slithery, slippery, sneaky snakes…..and the letter Ss too! We even pretended to slither across the floor like a snake during Circle Time.

A Silly Snake

(to the tune If You’re Happy and You Know It)

Oh, I wish I was a silly, slippery snake!

Oh, I wish I was a silly, slippery snake!

Oh, I’d slither across the floor and I’d slip on out the door

Oh, I wish I was a silly, slippery snake!

Seasons…

Today we learned all about the four seasons.   We talked about what happens in each season and which season the children liked best.  Here in Florida we have just two seasons: Hot and not so hot! But, with the songs and books, the children have a good understanding about the changes that happen up north through out the year.

The Seasons

(to the tune of London Bridge)

Spring, summer, fall, winter

Fall, winter, fall, winter

Spring, summer, fall, winter

What’s your favorite season?

I like tulips in the spring, in the spring, in the spring

I like tulips in the spring, they are pretty!

I like cherries in the summer, in the summer, in the summer

I like cherries in the summer, they are juicy!

I like chestnuts in the fall, in the fall, in the fall

I like chestnuts in the fall, they are yummy!

I like snow in the winter, in the winter, in the winter

I like snow in the winter, brrrr it’s cold!
