They retold the story by acting it out with felt animals using a felt board. It was a fun afternoon! We were also busy building letters with Kinects toys.
We had a great time making pancakes and sausage. The children learned about cooking safety and hygiene. They also learned how to set the table and we talked about table manners. We also cleaned up together. We read “Pancakes, Pancakes” by Eric Carle and talked about the steps to making pancakes and how important it is to eat a good breakfast.
