Pet Week!

What a tremendous success with Pet Week this week!! :)

We talked about different pets and what they ate. Some of the children in the class shared stories. One little boy shared with us that his sister ate dog food! We told him not to tell anyone else, she might wouldn't like that to get out. We talked about birds, dogs, fish, bunnies, and even cats! We did discover that "Hot Dogs" weren't really pets!! :)  We talked about how birdies do not eat doggy bones. We also talked about how kitty cats do not eat birdie and rabbit food! :)

The kiddos had a lot of fun. We were able to pull out some special pet finger plays that were done on the felt board. The special story of "Scat the Cat" was one of their favorites! :)

On Monday, we made the footprint birds in the cage. I think the one hanging from the ceiling looked best! :)

On Tuesday, we made the "expandable" dogs.

For Wednesday, we made goldfish hand prints. We had each child name their goldfish!

Thursday, we made cute little "hoppy" bunnies. We painted the bunnies.

For Friday, we made some adorable cat hand prints. (All the patterns, even the border was found on (Oh how I love this site for clip are and coloring pages!!) Each child was able to decorate their kitty bowl of food in any color they wanted!

Next week is apples!!
Hope you're Blessed with a fantastic weekend! :)

Love and Blessings,
Sherry :)
