This week we have been reading and learning with "Off to School, Baby Duck" by Amy Hest. We've read through it a couple times. Each time talking a little about a different aspect in the book. Yesterday, we had a sorting activity. Baby Duck has some important stuff in her backpack. So we created our own backpack with the same things Baby Duck had. Then I let Princess V and Princess C each take turns pulling an item out and sorting them.
After we did that, Princess V wanted to color our sorting papers. We had one that looked like a note pad and one that looked like an open book. She started with the book. On one page she drew a picture of Princess R. On the other side, she made little scribble lines to tell the story. I asked her what her story was about and this is what she said
"It's about R_ and my love. This is my love, and this is my throat" She then put her hands over her heart and then pointed to her throat. So I asked her if it was a story about her love for her sister. "Yes! This is my love and this is R_". What a wonderful big sister!
Today we will be discussing how differnt things can make us feel.
