FOR PLATYPUS RESOURCES PLEASE GO TO “PLATYPUS IN DEPTH”
For all our Dr. Seuss resources check out the blog entry: Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
What is one of the most famous and well known Dr. Seuss books? Why The Cat In The Hat of course! And today, that was the book we started our day with. We had THREE crafty things to do, colouring pages and everything. Of course there is the tv show The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That. I will try and connect this page (and the other Dr. Seuss ones) to our resource entry.
Our second book was One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Gavin read the first half and I read the second. I have a couple food items intending to represent this book for our Saturday feast. Actually we are having a Dr. Seuss WEEKEND as I think there will be a party in his honour at the Novak’s on Sunday too! I am really looking forward to that!
We continued our platypus assembly, the boys are taking turns choosing the page colours and we are slowly gluing all our bits like a rather giant and unusual puzzle. I am really amazed at how much we have to share in our lapbook!
We made up personalize Cat in the Hat faces… I love the creativity… note Emanuel’s is a DOLPHIN face and Zander’s a PLATYPUS!
As a family we did TWO crafts… we started on our Cat in the Hat table centerpiece and our Thing 1 and 2 hand pictures. Everyone was involved in everything it was so much fun!
Of course we ended the day with the cartoon The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That.
The book of the day for the 28th, the last day of February was the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. We had some worksheets and colouring pages. This was the first time the kids had heard this classic. I definitely want to add this one to our library!
I love Trinity’s what she learned: I learned you shouldn’t take things. Christmas is about being with the people you love, but not meany guys. You should not take presents. You should not let bad Santa take the presents. You should say no.
I have started trying to get Echo to sit on the potty. We are going to have to cave and attempt the Easy Ups. Sadly they are for such a huge span of weight I am a little concerned about her swimming in them but attempting to convince Echo to sit on the potty when we have to remove her diaper each time is not easy!
Another new Wild Kratts, another poster. I have always love the giraffe.
We even finished our Thing 1’s and 2’s. But since we are FIVE we had 1 through 5. The kids loved them and the faces are a total giggle. I think these are a keeper for me to bring out each year. Maybe even frame on a wall in our future home??
The kids were rather hard at work at the end of the month. Their reading goals were met AGAIN! And worksheets, math etc all done.
We also got our table cleared of all things previous holiday and have the Dr. Seuss pieces ready and waiting for our party on the 2nd.
We ended our day with the new Grinch movie starting Jim Carey. It was better than I expected and the kids really enjoyed it.
I will leave you with a few pages of our FINISHED Platypus lapbook! We are so excited to have completed this project. You will be able to find ALL my resources etc by clicking on the link I will put at the top of all the platypus entries!!
