From Head To Toe

To wrap up our 5 Senses unit, we read a fun book that talks about movement from head to toe...called From Head To Toe by Eric Carle.

Students L.O.V.E to act this book out as it is read. They also love to chime in on the repetitive phrases, especially answering the question "Can you do it?" with a loud "I can do it!"

We discussed how we have all been blessed with healthy bodies that can move in many ways, realizing that not everyone in the world is physically able to do these things.

The story lesson lead into a great class book.

Here are some of the entries by my students:

I am amazed at the variety of movements they came up with.
Check out the skipping ropes!
I love the hopscotch squares & numbers!
We had a light dusting of snow the morning we made this book.
{It has since melted, thank goodness.}

Needless to say, this book is a very popular choice right now in our classroom library!
