As we finish up our morning Summer Reading Program session, we today read about people in a community who do not get much recognition for the things they do. Albert The Fix-it Man by Janet Lord told about a man who helped whenever anyone in his town need something repaired. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive The Bus by Mo Willems featured a bus driver. The Dumpster Diver by Janet S. Wong was about a man who would help kids in his neighborhood make inventions from recycled materials. Finally, A Sick Day for Amos Magee by Philip Stead was a story about a zookeeper who helped each of his animal friends in a special way.
For our craft, we made some of Amos McGee's animals. We colored the animal(s) of our choice, then pasted them onto a big piece of paper. Some of us made our animals habitat in the background, and everyone chose to wrap yarn around the paper from top to bottom to make a cage for their zoo animals.
What a colorful zebra!
