If I ran the Zoo.....Exciting news!!!

We began tribute to Dr. Seuss week by reading "If I Ran the Zoo" it's a great book to start my little one's on because most of them have been to the zoo and can kind of relate, sometimes the "funniness" of books goes right over their head but they love this one! Then we used a writing sheet I got from Kreative in Kinder to write about and draw what we would put in our zoo if we ran the zoo...we aren't very imaginative now ...we had cats, dogs, elephants and lions, I tried to encourage made up creatures but they just looked at me like I was crazy, one little guy finally said "umm Mrs. Marshall those aren't real, they are only in your book" sooo cute, but that's what I'm trying to get you to do make up something!!! LOL anyway here's some pics of their animals...
 a dinosaur and a pig
 a tiger
 a kangaroo
 a giraffe
 a fox and a worm???

We also played One Fish, Two Fish, Go Fish you can get a copy of this game HERE!

Now for some VERY EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!!!! My Donor's choose Project was FUNDED today!!! It was getting down to the wire I had 8 days to go, I really didn't expect to get the funding I haven't had much luck with Donor's choose. I've tried a couple of times before and both times got nothing, but this time a very generous company funded my project so my kiddos are getting an I-PAD!!!!!! I can't wait to get it and download some apps for them to use, they are going to be so excited about adding this as a center! My class does not have a computer right now, it's going to be GREAT!!! Can you tell how excited I am!!!

Hope everyone else is having a great Monday!!! See you tomorrow with more Dr. Seuss fun!
