Week 19 Letter Vv, 3d shapes, Mittens and then the BEACH!!!!

!
Happy Beginning of Beach Week(s)!
However, before that fun, we had to finish 
MITTEN DAY MONDAY!
We had to WRITE with our MITTEN ON!!!
What fine motor fun!





We also retold the folktale THE MITTEN.
Here are the cast of the characters...

We told it twice so everyone could have a part!

We read several versions of The Mitten.
We used a Venn Diagram to compare/contract 2 of them.


Weren't the snowglobes adorable?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pinterest!

Before we went to the "beach" we made snow ice cream!
Yep, all it took was
1/3 cup suger
1 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
and enough snow to make it "ice cream-y"

Here are some of my chefs...



Yummy!
