Week # 16 & quot; If You Take A Mouse To The Movies & quot; - Margaret I. Robertson School Library

What would happen if you took a mouse to a movie theater? According to one little friend in Pre-K, "it would be crazy and he'd be running around scaring people, but I would not be scared!"

Our story today helped us practice sequencing. We listened to the story "If You Take a Mouse to the Movies" by Laura Numeroff and then used our sequencing skills to retell the story. If you take a mouse to the movies he'll ask for popcorn, then he'll want to make popcorn string, then he'll want to hang it on a Christmas tree, so you'll have to buy him one .... it just goes on and on (ask me about it!).

We made a "popcorn string" with pictures from the story that were printed on popcorn shaped paper. We strung each popcorn picture in order that they were in the story on the string until we had re-told the entire story. Wow, Whole Body Karate (Listening) really helps us learn!

After we re-told the story we had a special treat ... .we made popcorn! Did you know that fluffy popcorn comes from a tiny hard kernel? It looks like a seed and when you heat it up on the stove or in the microwave or in a popcorn machine it gets so hot that it explodes into the fluffy, crunchy, yummy snack we call popcorn! We learned how to make popcorn using an air popcorn machine. We measured the kernels in the cup and timed the popcorn cooking, but we did not touch the machine because it gets really hot and that's a grown-up job.

We were so excited when we saw that popcorn "float" out of the top of the popcorn maker and into the bowl. We used our sense of sight to look at the popcorn (we watched a time-lapse video of popcorn kernels popping on the stove), our sense of smell (so delicious.mmmmmm), sense of hearing (pop, pop, pop) , sense of touch (before and after), and our favorite, sense of taste ... so yummy and crunchy!

The lame naturalist
At the exact point where the American mink had been set before, they were playing for the second consecutive day the merry otters. The deep wound which appeared in the head, perceptible to the naked eye, reinforced the hypothesis of death by shooting.

What would happen if you took a mouse to a movie theater? According to a pre-K girlfriend, "it would be crazy and I would be running around scaring people, but do not fear me!"

It helped Our story today we practice sequencing. We listen to the story "If you take a serial mouse" by Laura Numeroff and then used our sequencing skills to retell the story. If you take a mouse to the cinema he will order the popcorn, then he will want to make a string of popcorn, then he will want to hang it on a Christmas tree, so you will have to buy one ... just go on and on (ask me about it!).

We made a "popcorn chain" with images of history that has been printed on paper in the form of popcorn. We string each popcorn image in order that they were in the story of the string until we retell the whole story. Wow, Whole Body Karate really helps us learn!

After retelling the story we had something special ... made us popcorn! Did you know that fluffy popcorn comes from a small hard core? It looks like a seed and when it is heated up on the stove or in the microwave or in a popcorn machine that gets so hot that it explodes in the spongy, crunchy, delicious appetizer we call popcorn! We learned how to make popcorn using an air popcorn machine. We measure the beans in the glass and we program the cooking popcorn, but do not touch the machine, as it is very hot and that is the work of an older person.

Finally we pretend to be like the mouse in our story and we watched a movie ("Frosty the Snowman"), while eating popcorn ... it was like being in the movies.
