His Work Style

For The Classroom
The Tiny Seed
Once read aloud, students will be able to understand parts of the flower and how a plants grow.

Each student will make their own flower using colored tissue paper and naming the petals, stem etc. :)

The students will also have a chance to plant thier own "Tiny Seed" and watch it grow, then they will be able to take it home and show thier parents.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The class will be able to sequence any set of events in the correct order. I will have also a paper where they can name the title etc over what they learned.
While I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, it will be during snack time and have children eat the fruits as I read along. They will be able to recognize the similarities and also enjoy the book.
To end the day we will have an activity where the children put thier index finger in ink and plave it on a paper making a caterpillar for them to take home to thier parents.
Do You Want To Be My Friend ?
To help the children understand the characteristic of a goof friend .
Have each student draw from a box of thier classmates names and say aloud for exapmle "jake is my friend."
As a class I would put on a song " I have a new friend" and have students pair with each other and dance and sing.
This would be to show that even though we all look different we can all enjoy each others company.
