I hope you enjoyed Mouse was Mad by Linda Urban illustrated by Henry Cole. I really like this book! It's such a fun way to talk about what we can do when we are mad.
This month's activity is a Calm down book!
A calm down book is a book filled with things to do when you feel mad or anxious and need to calm down.
Ideas for activities include:
Did you enjoy Surf's Up by Kwame Alexander with pictures by Daniel Miyares? I thought it was such a fun book! It shows how much fun reading can be!
This month's activity is a floating Surfboard STEM Challenge!
Third I put the surfboards in my tub of water and put pennies on them one by one until they sunk to the bottom. Which material do you think held the most pennies?
Try it at home!
Try this fun STEM challenge at home and tell me what materials you used and how many pennies your surfboards held up!
