I hope you were able to join us for Elmer's Special Day by David McKee. This is such a fun book to read and look at! It was very nice of Elmer to invite the other animals to join the Elephant Parade. It helped all of the animals become friends with each other! Elmer showed us that a great way to make new friends is to ask others to play with you.
What you need:
A Family is a family is a family
I hope you enjoyed A Family is a Family is a Family by Sara O'Leary with art by Qin Leng. I loved getting to learn about all the different kinds of families! I thought that since we read a book about families this month's craft should be doing a family activity!
This month's activity is Making Art with Nature! You and your family can go for a nature walk and gather supplies to use for your art project! Remember to only grab leaves, twigs, flowers, pinecones, acorns, and other objects that have fallen off their tree or plant.
You Will Need:
HERE IS MY FINISHED PAINTING!
For my next nature art piece I used glue and my nature items to create a picture! Since I had a bunch of nature items I decided to make a BIG TREE with little trees, bushes, and some flowers in front of it!
After you and your family go on your nature walk will you come back and tell me everything you found? Can you show me pictures of YOUR ARTWORK? I'm SO EXCITED to see what you create!
The Tea Party in the Woods
Ihad so much fun reading to you!
Did you enjoy The Tea Party in the Woods by Akiko Miyakoshi? I love how all of the animals were so happy to see Kikko and that they helped her when her pie was crushed.
DIY COOKIE PLATE FOR SANTA

It's that time of year, hot cider, pumpkins, apples, CANDY, and my favorite: Jack-O-Lanterns! This year I I grew some remember when we read "Seeds Move!" by Robin Page and I showed you some of the seeds I started? I ended up with three lovely pumpkins for this Halloween!
