Craft

This was a super simple craft; I ordered some jungle foam stickers and the kids went to town. The very funniest part was when they discovered dolphins and penguins in the stickers and told me that they didn’t belong! I agreed on the penguin part, but did let them know about the Amazon River dolphin!

How It Went

A super hard letter! I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to find Letter J books and activities. The kids were SO grossed out by the jellyfish; every time I turned a page they screamed “ewwww.” Again, I really like using non-fiction with this group and they like seeing the photos as well. The best book was probably “If You’re Happy and You Know It: Jungle Edition” and you know why — they got to pretend to be jungle animals, which is the very best thing in the world if you’re a kid!
