Story  House for a Hermit Crab

Fingerplays- Beach Ball  You can hop over there for a printable where you can make your own sheet if your child is old enough.  Here is mine.  I plan to print out a bunch of beach balls and just make it a game.  Here is where I will use extra beach balls from our name activity.

I can't get an outline on the white, but when I write out my pocket charts, I make it outline to say white.  I always write my color words in that color. With all the color songs, I have taught, all my students could always spell the color words :)

Art- Beach Ball Plate  
I've planned it before but you know me and painting, maybe this year lol

Math/Life Skills/Science- We're getting a hermit crab!!!!!!  

I am rethinking getting a hermit crab.  They aren't very active during the day and even though we have a large enough tank, there is a bit of expense for them.  Maybe we will visit one though!
