Scarecrows!

We had a lot of fun this week doing scarecrow stuff!  I wanted to post pictures of some of our center activities and theme activities.  Enjoy!



We picked crows out of the corn.  Then we counted how many we got and recorded the number on the sheet.  (another great idea from Mrs. Estes...visit her blog at http://krazyforkindergarten.blogspot.com )

we rolled the die and put that many patches on our scarecrow

we drew a shape out of the bag to build a scarecrow

measuring our class scarecrow with pumpkins.  We recorded what we did on a sheet.

we labeled a scarecrow with color words and words that matched his suit


mean                                  silly

 surprised                             sad

happy

We read The Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown and then we decided what kind of face we wanted our little scarecrow boys to have.  We completed a sentence to match our face.

Max from Where the Wild Things Are visiting our classroom.  We also watched the video that morning on BSLK television.  (We have an Awesome librarian)
