Folk Tales & Fairy Tales
This time we were discussing Folk Tales and Fairy Tales. We read stories from Three Little Pigs to Paper Bag Princess. Our pretend center was a castle that the children decorated, they played dress up as princesses and knights, they played sword fights, superheroes princesses and even vampires. In our block center, they built castle, towers and strong houses to protect them from the big bad wolf. Children also were playing with big train track, build space ship and cars from legos with our manipulative toys. All through the theme, we wrote stories that the children created with their imaginations and acted them out before story time. Children would picked who they wanted to be in the story and choose their friends to be the supporting actors, When we read Hansel & Gretel, we made a house made of bread, frosting and candies which we gladly ate at snack time and no witch took us as prisoners. We loved princess and the pea and we made a pile of bed that the princess was sleeping on. With the left over paper, we made castles that the prince and princess live. Also after we read Little Pea, we drew things that little pea like and hate then we use water color to paint. When the teacher brought a bag of peas, we decided that we didn't want to eat them instead we played with them in the sensory table. First they were hard then they were soft & squishy. We had a sad news, our goldfish died, we had a discussion of why did they die, then we decided how we want to bury them. We decided that fish lives in the water so we should flush them in the toilet where they can stay in the water. Everybody wrote a note for the fish, we miss them. Later on, one of the mom brought three new fish and they still live happily ever after!
