Next, in preschool, we learned the rhyme "5 Little Pumpkins" and read "Pete the Cat: Five Little Pumpkins" by Eric Litwin. We acted out the rhyme and then worked in centers with activities based on the 5 little pumpkins. We made 5 pumpkins out of play dough, built a gate for 5 pumpkins using blocks, stamped 5 pumpkins, and played search and find in the little pumpkin sensory bin. Ask me to sing you this silly rhyme.
In kindergarten we learned all about spiders. Did you know they have 8 legs and some have 8 eyes! We discussed why they spin a web and how they help us so ask me to teach you what I know about spiders! Next we read "The Very Busy Spider" by Eric Carle and sequenced all the characters. Ask me to retell what happened in the story and why the spider was so busy.
