Playing "Monster Squeeze" and "Top It" throughout the week helped us practice comparing numbers. We even found a computer game featuring a version of Top It! (Parents, "Top It" is like the game we used to call "War!")
We examined characters more this week, often comparing them and/or describing them using examples from the story to explain our descriptions. We had fun acting like the characters in Caps for Sale as we retold this funny story together! We know characters can be people and/or animals. Ask your child about the silly animals in Caps for Sale!
In our room, we made tortilla teepees to resemble those of the Plains Indians. We also made cradleboards and drums, which were used by most of the Native American tribes across North America. The kids have been very excited to learn these historical customs!
