Art: M is for monkey mosaic
We tore bits of colored paper and glued them to a picture of a monkey to make our magnificent monkey mosaic!
Literacy: M is for Goodnight Moon
Can any other parents recite this book by heart like we can? It's a great one and we made sure to highlight this book, as well as several other moon, monkey, and mouse books. Another favorite is The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear.
Science: M is for Melting
We talked about how ice melts and showed how a hot oven can melt crayons! We prepared star-shaped crayons for Little Lady's birthday party by putting broken crayons in molds, then melting them in the oven. Mmmmm....
Math: M is for Memory Game
We were going to play a memory game with family photos but I didn't get that accomplished so we used our store-bought memory game. With three matching sets, we worked with Little Lady on simple game rules and matching. Mini Me had fun being the teacher with this activity.
Movement: M is for Marching Band
We've had several new additions to our instrument bin this month so our M-week marching bands were new and exciting - a jingle bell bracelet, new maracas, and some bamboo flutes make for one good parade!Music: M is for Mister Sun
This old Raffi tune really sticks in my head and is appropriate for our summer weather. Mister Sun, sun, Mister golden sun, please shine down on me! I usually belted this out while the kiddos marched. ha ha!
Spanish: M is for mesa
I thought about getting this word to "stick" by having the kids pound on the table and shout "mesa" but then I thought again. Bad idea. So we just said "mesa" a lot.
