We had a fun week learning all about the letter Rr. Along with learning about rain and rainbows (click here to see previous post) we learned all about the rooster with a book, song and craft!
Sing With Me
(To the tune of “Hush Little Baby”)
Reggie Rooster builds an R that’s red.
Raises it high up over his head.
On Reggie’s roof shines his red R.
All the roosters think that he’s a star.
We read “Rooster’s Off to See the World” by Eric Carle. This is such a great book to read aloud because the children work on their counting skills as you read along. The rooster encounters a number of animals along his way who join him on his adventure and then as they leave and you count them down. And I also love Eric Carle’s beautiful water color illustrations.
We made paper plate roosters to go along with our book and song.
