This week for A mommy’s adventure stArt carnival we did Just Enough Carrots by Stuart Murphy. We are currently working on Nutrition, so a book about carrots fits right in.
During the story we used the plastic carrots, peanuts, and worms to talk about more, less, and same. Here is Carrot top signing Rabbit hopping along with the story! He is such a ham.
After the story, we used the carrots and other props as manipulatives for math problems such as- Elephant has 2 carrots in her basket. Her friend rabbit shared 2 with her too. How many does elephant have now?
After our math activities, we made fresh carrot finger paint! The boys thought it was fun blending them up! They attempted to paint their favorite orange vegetable but got to excited by the texture of the carrot mash that they just smeared it everywhere! This is the second round of painting, something not soggy and messy 🙂
