This week we are learning more things about the garden. One of our read aloud books shows us the artist, Monet’s, Garden. It is so beautiful!

Here’s a copy of one of the paintings he made of his garden.

Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lillies by Claude Monet.

For this week’s art project, you’ll be making your own bridge garden. You’ll need paper, tape and paint!

Day 2- Did you like all the plants in Monet’s garden? I wonder if there were any plants in his garden that we could eat? Have you ever eaten a plant? What kinds of plants are safe to eat? Take a look at this book, entitled, Plants Feed Me.

Day 3- Did you know that rabbits like to eat the thirds we plant in our gardens? It’s true! They to eat! I wonder what else they like to do! Here’s a little rhyming book about rabbits, entitled, The Habits of Rabbits.

Day 1- In our first book for the week; Up, Down and Around by Katherine Ayers, we’ll see how full of life the garden is every where we look!

Day 4- Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert, shows us how a garden can have lots of colors! What’s your favorite?

Day 5 – The Sunflower House by Eve Bunting is one of my (Ms. Pabón) favorite books! When I taught kindergarten we planted lots of sunflowers so that we could have a house too! Our flowers didn’t grow very well but wouldn’t it be fun to have a little house made just out of sunflowers? Read all about it here!

Week 9-Art

Sunflowers were one of Van Gogh’s favorite flowers! Look at one of his famous paintings, Sunflowers!

Week 8 – Read Aloud Books

Day 1- Our first book for the week is entitled, All about Bugs. You can follow along as you learn some interesting facts about bugs !

Day 2-For this book, you will need a grown up to help you read along. It also has some great facts about bugs! https://youtu.be/I70pFR_t0Lw

Day 3- This book, entitled Sam and the Firefly is a fun adventures book about an owl and a firefly! Have you seen any fireflies lately? I wonder what adventures they’re up to?

Day 4- The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle is a book about a spider. You may think a spider is an insect – but it’s not. By now you know so many facts about insects, can you guess why? Well my little entomologist (fancy word for scientist who studies bugs) it’s because a spider has 8 legs not 6! All insects have 6 legs! Also the spider doesn’t have 3 body parts. But lots of people call spiders, bugs. I guess Anything little that crawls around could be called a bug or a mini- beast but never an insect!

Day 5- Butterflies are one of my favorite bugs! This book is entitled, Waiting for Wings by Lois Ehlert. I wonder how butterflies can wait so patiently so get their wings. They must practice being patient a lot!

Week 7- Read Aloud books

Day 1- Today’s book is entitled, Bugs, bugs, bugs by Bob Barner. Can you follow the words as he reads? Can you write the word bug without looking at how it’s spelled? Listen to the sounds carefully – stretch it out and see how close you get!

Day 2- Today’s read aloud is A non-fiction book entitled -Bugs are Insects. Do you remember what non fiction means? It mean it will give us information or facts about the topic. Ready to learn more about bugs? Come listen to this book!

Day 3- Pattern Bugs by Trudy Harris takes us through some pattern noises that bugs make- can you find patterns in nature? On the flowers? Birds? Bugs? Sounds that you hear?

Day 4- I like Bugs by Margaret Wise Brown. The words, I like, are words we write often in kindergarten. Try your best to write I like and then draw the type of bug you like best. Send us a photo of your work on Dojo!

Day 5- Very Grouchy ladybug by Eric Carle. Do you ever feel grouchy when you’re hungry. Grouchy means you feel a little angry and maybe you’re in a bad mood. It just seems like nothing can make you happy! Even when others are kind to you. What do you do when you feel like this? This ladybug didn’t make good choices when she was feeling grouchy but we can try! Can you think of something you could do to help yourself feel better when you’re grouchy? Sometimes taking a rest or eating or dancing helps me! What helps you?
