I am so in love with all the things Caleb does at his preschool. This is a water color painting, painted with Q-tips. I just love the colors he chose and the little "splash" of red. I already have it in a frame! (How am I going to have enough space for these kids art work?)
On Monday they learned about squirrels, read books about squirrels and wrote a story about squirrels. Here is story number two by Caleb (there is definitely a theme to his stories!):
Once there was a Daddy squirrel named Fluffy.
He drove an excavator. He was digging a house.
His baby squirrel helped too. His name was Chipmunk.
He did the grader truck. He smoothed out the dirt.
I aske Mrs. Elizabeth how she has them "write" these stories and she said she had a big squirrel and a little squirrel sitting on the table. She starts out by asking them some questions, "What is this squirrel's name?" "What does he do?" and then the story takes shape!
