I adore Llama Llama so much that I wanted to make Llama’s with my preschoolers!
This is what I decided on.
Aren’t they cute?
You will need:
The Llama L printable is available in our SHOP.
During Circle Time, read any of the following Llama Llama books written by Anna Dewdney to your preschoolers.
We read all 4, plus the newest Llama addition Llama Llama Home With Mama.
After we read about Llama Llama and his Mama, we did the following Language Activities; (*Language Activities found HERE.)
• Select vocabulary words from each of the books that might be unfamiliar to your students, such as hum, fret, whimper, drama,
fuss, pout, weeping, tizzy, patient, or snuggle. Write the words on the board and describe their meanings. Ask the children to try
using one of the new words in a sentence of their own or invite students to act them out.
• All of the Llama Llama books are written in rhyme. Explain to your students what rhyming words and poetry are. Give examples
of places where rhymes are used, such as songs (“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”) or other books. Ask them to identify which words
rhyme with which throughout the Llama Lama stories.
Oh the answers were Inspiring!
Blue Sky Clouds Ice Cream! Purple Princess Ice Cream! Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Ice Cream!
I could go on.How about Grey Knight Batman Ice Cream?
The possibilities are endless!
We did this as our Letter Ii Entry for our Alphabet Journal.
Want to try it too? Feel free to use the template I drew over in our shop.
Our Thankful TreeOur theme for the month of November is “I am Thankful”.
Fitting, right? 🙂
We’ve talked a lot about what it means to be thankful, what and who we are thankful for, and how we can show our gratitude.
For our Bulletin Board this month, each of my preschoolers told me something that they were thankful for. I Wrote those things down on some fall leaves and then put them on our Thankful Tree.
You can click on the image above to enlarge it and read the leaves.
I drew the fall leaf and then copied it onto colored paper.
You are welcome to use it if you’d like!
You will need:
Brown Construction Paper, cut into 2 inch wide strips for the belt.
The Tool Template Provided below.
Our Tool Belt fun wouldn’t be complete without some good music to go along with our craft.
Enjoy “Mouse in My Tool Box” by the Laurie Berkner Band via youtube.
Song is available on itunes. (Parents, it is #15 on your music CD!)
I told him that I wished we could launch rockets for Outer Space week… I’ll be honest, I wasn’t even sure he was listening. (Geniuses don’t always listen so well.)
I came home last Saturday afternoon from running errands and guess what?!
Mr Ryan had built our class a launcher!
Let me tell you, it was nothing short of a blast. (A blast!)
Mr Ryan and I made paper rockets the night before launch day. (They are a little too advanced for preschool aged children.)
Some Rocket Launcher’s run with a compressor, Mr Ryan made one that worked with a bike pump. It’s very kid friendly. He even added a button switch so that the kids could take turns launching the rockets. (I told you he was a genius.)
The preschoolers enjoying their Ice Cream Rocket (Push) Pops while anticipating the first launch.
