Week 4 7-8: Express Yourself

Week 4
Ages 7-8
Express Yourself


Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems. Naked mole rats make for some funny characters. The moral of the story here is don't be afraid to be different! 
The next book we read was The Cranky Ballerina by Elise Gravel,  which has the moral of find something that makes your heart happy! 
 The final book we read was Frank was a Monster who wanted to Dance by Keith Graves. This was a silly book about expressing yourself no matter what others think! 


For our craft today we made torn paper self-portraits. To make these we used a piece of colored construction paper to be our background. With various other colors we tore them up and glued them on the background to form our portrait. This was an interesting craft some of the kids absolutely loved this craft, while others found it difficult to let their craft be messy!


For our game today we played express yourself TAG! To play this game assign one person to be it. If you're tagged by the person that's it then you must stop where you are and perform a silly dance or sing a silly song. After that you are allowed to run around freely. 


For our snack we had oranges, and watermelons.
