Fun with Bunnies!

IMG_4934

We had a great time learning about rabbits these past few weeks.  The children did a great job on their rabbit reports!  We read and sorted the facts about rabbits into four different categories.  The categories were What They Look Like, About the Babies, What They Eat, and Cool Facts.  The children glued the facts onto the appropriate category page and then we turned the report into a rabbit!  They did a great job!

We have been having a lot of fun hearing about the adventures of our three travelling bunnies.  Each night, the three bunnies travel to a different child’s house for a sleepover.   Each day we share the stories that have been written about their trip.  We have really enjoyed the adventures that the bunnies have had at each house!  Everyone seems very excited to have the bunnies come for a sleepover.  Thank you for your efforts helping to record the stories!

Here are a few pictures of some of the adventures that the bunnies have had!  Benjamin looks like he is really enjoying the story!

Everyone seems to be really enjoying this picnic!

Thanks for sending me these amazing pictures and allowing me to share them with everyone!

We have also been having some fun with a few Peter Rabbit apps that I have downloaded on a few of the iPads.  Even Peter Rabbit has an app!  I have two favorite Peter Rabbit apps.  I downloaded the app from the official Peter Rabbit site and shared it with my students the first year I used the iPads.  This year it was as big a hit as it has been over the past few years.

You can have the story read to you or you can read it by yourself.  On some of the pages you can take a shortcut to an activity page.  Lots of fun!

I love the coloring pages on this one!  It has a special paintbrush that paints with “Beatrix Potter” colors!

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 also read a favorite story by Margaret Wise Brown called Home for a Bunny!

Margaret Wise Brown is one of my favorite authors.  Her stories are timeless and the children always love them.  We made story maps for this story and used our BooBoo Bunnies and a paper bag puppet we made to act out the story.  Hopefully they were able to share their story maps with you!

Another Monster?

We have continued to have fun with the Peter Rabbit apps.  It is hard to figure out which app is the most popular.  They all seem to be getting a lot of use!  I love the coloring one in the official Peter Rabbit website app.  The magic paintbrush colors the pictures in the same lovely colours that can be found in the books.

We did a story map based on the story Home for a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.  You can’t go wrong with a Margaret Wise Brown story!  The children sequenced the story and then we made some boo-boo bunnies for them to use as a story prop to retell the stories!  We didn’t manage to get them all finished on the day we did the story maps so we didn’t send them home until the next day when everyone could take their bunnies home!  They were pretty popular bunnies and they had a lovely time “resting” in their Easter bunny baskets.

I love the app The Monster at the End of this Book so I couldn’t resist getting the next story called Another Monster at the End of this Book.  Really cute story!  I used the projector to show the story using my special adaptor cord so we could all see the story on the big screen.  One of the students took charge of turning the pages.  Another hit!

Poor Grover!  He sure doesn’t like monsters!
