Kindergarteners sure loved this lesson. We were inspired by this print by Nick Gustafson. I mean WHO DOESN'T like a cat with crazy patterns? But really, the kiddos were more concerned that the moon was yellow and not silvery gray. With that we got a impromptu lesson on moon phases and the harvest moon. But aren't these guys cute?
Disclaimer: No cat tails were harmed in the making of this project. Seriously--those are some tricky shapes to cut around and maybe 2 lost their tails. I'll take that any day. Maybe our cutting endurance is paying off?
To go along with the lesson we read Cat's Night Out, it's filled with rhyming wonderfuls and counting by twos.
