How appropriate that our theme was umbrellas this rainy April week in San Diego! Here is our learning board for the week:
Yellow Umbrella (New York Times Best Illustrated Books (Awards))by Jae-Soo Liu. I loved this beautifully illustrated wordless book. It comes with a CD of music written to accompany the illustrations, which I thought was so fun and unique. Charlotte enjoyed this one too and it’s fun to make up your own story to go with the pictures also.
The Umbrella by Jan Brett takes place in the Cloud Forest in Costa Rica, where all kinds of animals find themselves gathered in an umbrella, with not quite enough room. We enjoyed this book and it would also be a great one for studying Costa Rica, or animals of the rain forest.
Verse: “Understanding is like a fountain of life to those who have it…” Proverbs 16:22
And in our Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow book we learned about being unselfish:
“U is for unselfish.
Be willing to share.
Be thoughtful of others
And always be fair.”
