Fun with Peter Rabbit and Friends!

A couple of years ago I discovered that even Peter Rabbit has an app!  I downloaded the app from the official Peter Rabbit site and shared it with my students last year.  This year it was as big a hit as it was in the last two years.

The coloring pages are fun because you can use a magic paintbrush and it paints it in “Beatrix Potter” colors!

You can have the story read to you or you can choose to read it yourself. There are a variety of games and activities that the children can do and all have the lovely Beatrix Potter colors and illustrations!

I also showed them the app called PopOut Peter.  It has a jigsaw puzzle feature that I really enjoy.  I think both of the apps might become favourites!

We have been doing a lot of different things with rabbits.

We did a mini research report about rabbits where the children had to read a variety of facts about rabbits and sort and categorize them into different categories!  We turned it all into a rabbit shaped report!

Today, we read one of my favourite stories by Margaret Wise Brown called Home for a Bunny!  Then the children retold the story using a story map.  They sequenced the story parts and had a great time illustrating their story!

We also made some BooBoo bunnies!  They will be coming home tomorrow as we didn’t quite get everyone’s bunny finished.  So the bunnies are having a sleepover at school!  Hope they don’t get up to too much mischief!

We also participated in the annual Easter Egg hunt and had to race the crows to find all the eggs.

We watched one crow pick up an egg and fly away with it right in front of us!  What would the Easter bunny think?

We also had a real bunny called Honey Bunny come visit!  What a great bunny! So gentle!

Honey Bunny hopped around the carpet visiting the children and was willing to be petted by everyone!  Definitely a Honey Bunny!
