How I Predicted Today Going…
I think I was more excited about today’s books than the kids were. It was a silly book so I knew they would like the book, but I was really excited to hear all about what everyone’s dreams were for when they “grow up”. Some dreams were as expected, some were surprising. As far as the activities we came up with, those were pretty much expected, they all were “occupation” themed ideas so that went well with the story and then someone brought up the snail page from the book so it was fun to do a snail activity.

Activities Produced from that Story:
We gathered items from the room to make some “occupation” theme bins and played with them
Colored pictures of what we want to be when we grow up
Had a show and tell show about what we want to be when we grow up
The kids loved the part in the book about the Snail Circus Trainer so we made some snail art
Got out he magnet letters and tried matching the letters to some of the new vocabulary we learned in the book

What We Learned Today:
It was a rhyming story so we worked on rhyming skills
Learned new vocabulary
Learned about snails
Worked on fine motor skills when creating our snail art
Worked on creativity when creating our snail art

Used imagination & creativity when drawing our pictures
Worked on communication skills when presenting what we want to be when we grow up
Worked on listening skills while listening to our friends present

Use imagination and creativity when role playing with the occupation theme boxes
