eeK weeK

Library Day! I tried something new I saw on pinterest here, tracing letters in highlighter and have Javin go over it in pen or crayon. It worked better than making all those stinkin' dash letters :)
We read:
A Place Called Kindergarten by Jessica Harper (good)
The Nothing King by Elle Van Lieshout (ok)
The French Fry King by Roge (great)
Princess Kim and too much truth by Maryann Cocca-Leffler (too long)

We needed an outdoor day, it was SO beautiful. I was thinking about flying Kites, but there wasn't enough we Kicked a ball around instead. It was AWESOME!
We read: Fly, Kite, Fly! by John Winch (weird)
Henry and the Kite Dragon by Bruce Edward Hall (good)
Kite Day by Will Hillenbrand (great)
Koala Lou by Mem Fox (good)
Koala and the Flower by Mary Murphy

We dressed up in our Halloween costumes and went to the zoo. I thought that the Hogel Zoo have a Kangaroo, but we only saw a couple wallabies - Maybe its too cool for them to be in the outside yard?

We read: The Duck & The Kangaroo by Jane Wattenberg (weird)
Does A Kangaroo Have A Mother, Too? by Eric Carle (great)
Where Are You, Blue Kangaroo? by Emma Chichester Clark
Class Two at the Zoo by Julia Jarman (great)

Javin was showing me the baby Kangaroo in the pouch on the Carousel

I guess we did see the Kangaroo.

I had a Mary Poppins moment on the Carousel,  and imagined the animal jumping off their poles - Good times!

We went to story time at the Foothill Library and Javin was a complete pill! We had to go outside and have a time out so that he wasn't disturbing anyone with his screaming, also if I would've be alone with him I would've beaten his bum. I know this is awful to say, but sometimes he just needs a smack on the tush. We got through it though and went back in to 'enjoy' story time, he was 'scared' of the books they were reading.

Because Kitten and cat are pretty much the same thing and start with the same sound we had to talk about how sometimes two letters make the same sound, you just have to know which to use.
We read:
A Kitten Tale by Eric Rohmann
Clifford's Kitten by Norman Bridwell
Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes

We had lunch at Zupas, was good. We talked a lot about Kisses and that's how we show that we love each other. We also make a Kaleidoscope, we got directions here.
We read: Kiss Good Night by Amy Hest (great)
Kisses by Nanda Roep
Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! by Kyle Mewburn
Kiss Kiss! by Margaret Wild
