Preschool Corner: Rabbits

So, I've decided to split up what the superheroes do and what Princess does in my posts. They're still essentially doing the same thing, but I'm moving their work to slightly different levels. So, here's what the boys did this week to learn about rabbits.

First we read all sorts of books about rabbits. As soon as I figure out how to do the bookshelf widget I'm adding that in. We're also reading a chapter book about rabbits to get them used to the idea of books not having lots of pictures. Superman really likes this because his name is in one of the books.


First the boys had to make a book about what wild rabbits eat. They had to cut out the shapes of the vegetables and glue it into the book. One very impotrant thing I learned, always do all of the glueing before assembling the books. I had to be very creative in making sure it didn't glue together.

It looks funny, but the pages aren't glued together now.

The next project was putting together what a pet rabbit eats. This time I searched out all the pictures from clip art online and we went through and glued down what rabbits eat everyday, fruits and vegetables and things that are poisonous. My boys are now going around telling me rabbits can't eat "amonds and avender." I also hear nonstop about how much rabbits like salad.

Finally I found a dot to dot for the alphabet, I was really looking for a number one, but haven't found it. I just need to buy a book of those, they really need the practice with numbers.


This week we're going to continue learning about rabbits and also about Easter. We're going to make a rabbit warren by draping blankets over chairs and make tunnels. When I do it, I'll post it. It's amazing how much there is to do in such a small amount of time.
