Harold and The Purple Crayon - FIAR Co-op

To begin our month, we "rowed" Crockett Johnson's book, Harold and the Purple Crayon.  This is such a cute story, and all my kiddos love it.  We've read it before and read a couple other books featuring Harold, but they most definitely enjoyed some re-reads of this classic.

We were able to get together with our book buddies and friends during co-op.  Ms. Alice led the kiddos in some great activitied including:  drawing with purple crayons/markers, a color matching game, and a fraction lesson.  Although, I do believe the highlight of the morning was snack time.  Since Harold had a picnic with 9 different types of pie, the kiddos got to create their own mini-pies.  With 9 available toppings, they came up with some interesting concoctions.  All extremely tasty in their books!
