Going along with the theme, we went to the library in search of bus books. We ended up borrowing two. Bus Stop, Bus Go by Daniel Kirk and School Bus by Donald Crews. And we made a school bus craft. As busy as we have been the last few weeks, I kept this one as simple as possible. Especially since he did another bus craft at Kindergarten Club and received several print outs from the bus safety teachers/drivers.
We also learned some more about shapes with our project. Buses are rectangles and wheels are circles, etc. We cut out a big rectangle for the bus and some circles for the wheels, some squares for the windows and glued them all to a piece of construction paper. Then Nathan drew people in the windows. He also remembered that school buses have a stop sign on them, so he drew one on his bus. And asked me to write "stop" on it.
He was feeling pretty cranky today from all the activity he's been doing lately (K.C. and library story time) that I thought it was best to keep it simple. Plus, we did the Cupcake book earlier this week too, so I figured he's getting plenty of stimulation.
