Letter T

This week was all about Teddy Bears! Here's what we did.....

Brought our Teddys to school and used them for some explorations. The students noted their bears color, height, weight, texture, size, and fur length.

Guessed How many teddys were in the jar:
Before they went home the students tucked in their bears for the night:

Our Bears slept over and the next day we found our Bears busy at work around our room!

We had a teddy bear picnic with teddy grahams for us, and (Swedish) fish for our teddy bears!

We Learned the classic rhyme "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear"

We did some teddy centers  this week too:

As with our other letters we also sorted beginning sounds,

and charted all the Tt words we could think of.

On Friday we loaded up the buses and went to see "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" and other Eric Carle stories performed at the Kravis Center. 
The Play was performed by the Mermaid Theater of Nova Scotia and here are some pics from their website: 
Back at school we mapped out the story elements from the 3 stories:
