Our stories this week included for the younger class Bear Gets Dressed by Harriet Hiefert, Under My Hood I have a Hat by Karla Kuskin, and Black Dog gets Dressed by Lizi Boyd. Our older class read The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Nietzel, Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch and Naked Mole Rat gets Dressed by Mo Willems.
I used the die cut machine to cut out paper dolls and we pasted on hats and coats and colored in some pants and shoes. A couple of glue on eyes and the doll was complete. In one of the classes we talked about the concept of being naked because of the "naked" mole rats. One little girl from this class said, "Oh, I am so glad that my doll isn't naked any more!" We did discuss the advantages of wearing clothes so hopefully none of them decide to go home and be like a naked mole rat.
Next week: Houses and Homes
