Animal Antics!

This week we read favorite books that featured funny animals. The funny book If All The Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder tells the things that would happen if animals came into a house and the terrible mess it would make. Chris Van Dusen's The Circus Ship tells the sometimes sad story of circus animals that washed ashore on an island after their ship sank - and how they lived happily ever after!
Next we worked on our craft. Kids decorated a white paper animal shape to be a horse, cow, donkey - even a unicorn! Dots, paper stripes, and collaged paper made markings for the animal and yarn made manes and tails. The final touch - clothespin legs so the animal could stand...and run and trot and gallop and canter...
