We read Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig. In the story Sylvester's parents have a picnic on Strawberry Hill, so the students wrote about where they would like to have a picnic. They also wrote and illustrated their favorite picnic food on a paper plate. In the computer lab, they illustrated a picnic scene in Pixie 2. Then we sorted picnic foods/containers by solid shapes (boxes, cans, spheres). We also made a picnic snack mix that we ate while we watched Sylvester on the Magic Pebble on Discovery Streaming.
