For our first story, Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candace Fleming, the children made a vegetable garden out of tissue paper, painted a backdrop of a beautiful sunny sky and acted out the story of a gardener called Mr. McGreely, who tries to protect his garden from some pesky bunnies that no matter how big and strong a fence he builds, always find their way to those yummy veggies!
Our second story was Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina, A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business. We painted large cardboard boxes to make a city, made monkey tails and monkey ears, and practiced our lines calling out: “Caps! Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap!”.
