This was the third week of water storytime!
What We Read:
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen & Dan Hanna
The pout-pout fish spends all day moping around the ocean, “spread[ing] the dreary-wearies all over the place.” Can any of his friends convince to turn his frown into a smile? This series is told in rhyme, and it’s a lot of fun to read aloud.
The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark by Deborah Diesen & Dan Hanna
The pout-pout fish has learned to smile, but when he promises to find Ms. Clam’s missing pearl, he finds he may have bitten off more than he can chew. Can he brave the dark depths of the ocean with the help of a few friends?
What We Said:
“This is the Sea”
Here is the sea, the wavy sea. (move hand in a wave motion)
Here is the boat. (lay hand flat horizontally, with thumb resting on fingers)
And here is me. (hold thumb up)
All of the fishies, (make fish swimming motion with hand below boat)
Way down below,
Wiggle their tails, (wiggle fingers)
And away they go!
“Touch Your Nose”
What We Did:
Played with kinetic sand and our new color kinetic sand.
Dug for buried treasure in the sand.
What We Made:
Sand art: use glue to make a design or a picture, sprinkle lots of color sand all over, shake off excess sand.
A scaly fish: color a picture of a fish, use overlapping punched out hearts as scales.
Next week, more water storytime fun!
