This week we wrapped up our Humpty Dumpty theme – ideas thanks to Itty-Bitty Bookworm…
Our books (I loved them all):
- The True Story of Humpty Dumpty by Sarah Hayes
- Little Lumpty by Miko Imai
- Humpty Dumpty by Kin Eagle
- Tillie Lays an Egg by Terry Golson
- An Egg Is Quiet by Dianna Aston
I made a lot of Humptys. Here’s one I made out of shapes that Mom cut out of construction paper.
Here’s another one – Mom drew an egg on the easel paper, and then I drew in the face and a crack. I bandaged up the crack with band-aids!
I drew a Humpty face on a real egg, too.
And I tried to put Humpty together again with glue. First we put egg shells in a ziploc bag with a few drops of food coloring, and I crushed and smushed them up. Then we laid them on a paper towel to dry. Then I painted an oval shape with glue, put the eggshell pieces on the glue, and painted some more glue on top of it all! Not quite like the original…
I made a pet rock Humpty with egg and chick stickers.
I did some upper/lowercase matching with plastic egg halves in my sensory bin.
I practiced cutting a zig zag shape on a paper egg.
I made a crown with glitter glue so I could be king of all the horses and men…
I practiced “reading” my very own Humpty book. (Excuse the name – I’ve been practicing my trademark signature of both Es facing inwards, so some of the other letters get rushed…)
I did story sequencing with these sentence strips.
I put puzzles together, kinda like putting a Humpty together.
And I worked on my writing skills with some Humpty words, like “wall.”
I practiced carrying an egg around in a spoon. This is harder than it looks!
And I cracked and fried myself an egg to eat! (I put green food coloring in it, too – cuz I LOVE green eggs and ham…)
