FISH ! ! !

Fish was the theme of our storytime today.  We started with reading a book called "About Fish, A guide for Children by Cathryn Sill, that talked about fish.

Then we read the book:  "Fish, Swish! Splash, Dash! by Suse MacDonald.  This is a counting round book.

 I had the kids get up and clear space and we did the "Fishy Pokey" ( to the tune of the Hokey Pokey ).  Everyone got involved and had a lot of fun.  Then we read our last book for the day called: "Ten Little Fish, by Audrey Wood.

Craft Time:  For our craft today, we made our own fishbowls.  I gave each child a copy of an empty fishbowl.  We then took small strips of colored paper and glued on to the fish bowl for the grass.  Then we used fruit loops to glue on as rocks and fish crackers to glue on as the fish in our bowl. 

The kids all created great fishbowls.  Below are some pictures of their crafts.

Thank you all for coming.  Hope to see you all again next week.
