Wacky Watermelon Wednesday

Today was Wacky Watermelon Wednesday and most of our lessons were geared around a watermelon.  We discussed the life cycle of a watermelon and they were artists as they painted a picture of it.  We sang a rhyming song about watermelons too.

We felt the watermelon, held it, estimated its weight and weighed it.  We talked about the letter Ww and its sound and how to write it.  We also made up a silly story about a Willie Watermelon and his adventure at the seashore with Winnie the whale.  We made a booklet for you to see.

At the end of the day, we went outside to the picnic table and the children watched me cut the watermelon into pieces for them to eat.  It was a fun day and they learned a lot along the way!
It was pretty heavy for these little guys!

Here are the little artist painting their watermelon.
Their favorite part of the day!
