April 28, 2014: Book Treasure Book

This past Friday we read Purple, Green and Yellow,written by Robert Munsch as our book treasure book. In this book,  Brigid is having fun with her markers until she goes overboard and paints on herself with her super-indelible-never-comes-off-till-you’re-dead markers.Nothing will remove the color, so she finds the purple marker and covers up all the other colors. She looks better than before–too good to be true. Your child should have brought home their retelling sheet, envelope, and a marker. Retelling sheets are due back to school by Wednesday. Below is a link to the official Robert Munsch website. On the site, children can listen to Robert Munsch read his stories. If you would like to visit his site, just click on the picture below. Also, don’t forget you can leave your retelling here as a comment.

On Thursday, we did a fun activity with jelly beans. We started off by getting a cup of jelly beans. Then we sorted them by color on a jelly bean mat.
