We read the story "Twas the Night Before the Tooth Fairy" by Natasha Wing. It was a cute book about a boy who has a loose tooth and can't wait for it to come out. His Parent's come up with some idea's on how to get it out, but it finally comes out when his dog knocks him over. He then puts in under his pillow for the Tooth Fairy, who comes in the night. He happens to be awake :) and peeks out of one eye at the Tooth Fairy, who flutters around the room. When she leaves he peeks under his pillow... and there, to his surprise and delight is a Spanking New Dollar!! It is a very cute book, with the cadence of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to it.
When we were through reading the book, twice, we went off to Quiet Work. In the Centers were... Sand Studio, Rice Table, I put out a peg/number work, blocks, and some emergent reader work (which is a one on one time with me). At the Art Center the kids got to make Tooth Fairy Boxes. We talked about all the different ways that people hide their teeth for the Tooth Fairy. On Monday we will add special jewels, since the paint didn't dry quick enough today.
Thinking about how short this month is and all we were worried about fitting in, I can't believe I got most of it in. Plus some :) The visit to the elementary school was great and not really planned at the beginning of the month. Now, on to March... Dr. Seuss's Birthday, 2 Preschoolers turn 5, St. Patricks Day, and the lead up to Easter. Another busy month a head. I better get planning.
For lunch today we had pretzels, PB&J, Fresh Strawberries, and Milk. Yum!!!
