We sang songs like this one, sung to the tune of "All Around the Mulberry Bush":
All around the great wide world,
Columbus sailed the ocean.
To prove the world was big and round,
That's real devotion!
And this one, sung to the tune of "Oh, Suzanna":
Sailed the ocean wide and blue.
He landed in America,
We read several books:
|I love this book because it rhymes!|
We then made these fun art projects from TLC Lessons. TLC has a collection of directed art lessons for just about every season, theme, etc. My teacher pal, Mrs. Kania came across them a few years ago and I'm hooked! Each project has directions that the children need to follow. You need to pre-cut the paper...but it's so worth it! The projects turn out so cute and it's a great listening and fine motor activity! Check out our Santa Maria...or Nina...or Pinta! :)
It's Fire Prevention Week too! I'll post what we're doing for that later in the week!
