Before Five in a Row : The Little Rabbit

((Hannah is 3 1/2))
((Danny is 1 1/2))

 This week we had the pleasure of rowing The Little Rabbit by Phoebe Dunn. This ended up being a super special week with not many pictures. The first thing we did after reading the book the first day was make some rabbit ears. I didn't finish making Danny's because I knew he wouldn't wear them but now looking at the picture I wish I would have tried at least for a quick picture. He did however, enjoy playing with all of the stuffed rabbits we have. Both of their birthdays are usually around Easter so when Hannah was first born I went a little crazy with bunnies and little lambs. Hannah named the rabbit she is holding Buttercup like the star of our story and Danny is holding Patches the Bunny.

We used the book The Big Treasury of Little Animals. Danny was obsessed with flipping through the pages, he especially loved the page with the little kitten Pickle and his pink balloon. Danny LOVES balloons right now.

Hannah's favorite part of the story was the fact that Buttercup came in an Easter basket with two Easter eggs. 

Most of the days we concentrated on the printables. We colored a bunny picture together and used some fun worksheets. One of Hannah's favorite activities right now is pasting, we're still working on cutting but she makes sure to cover her paper with plenty of paste. The worksheet below was about labeling a turtle and she knew all the body parts.

This worksheet that she is working on was one that excited me the most this week. She had to count the rabbits and then circle the number. She got bored of counting herself so I helped with that but she was able to point out the number and circle it every time. 

We didn't finish this H worksheet the previous week so we added it in. So far I have been diligent in completing every letter for the alphabet art book. All of the letter I worksheets for this week are behind that page, just didn't get pictures.

One of the best and most memorable things we did this week was take a field trip to a local feed store that I knew had rabbits and baby chicks. Luckily this is two minutes away from our house. The kids both LOVED this. They got to see different types of rabbits. They didn't have the exact kind that Buttercup is but they had similar pink eyed and eared rabbits. I think the kids got a bigger kick out of the baby geese, ducks and chicks. This was the perfect time of year to read this book,  great for spring and Easter time.
