For stARt this week, we read the book Corduroy by Don Freeman.M loved this book, and we've read it repeatedly this week.
For a simple story extender, we made Corduroy. I cut a bear shape out of paper, drew on a face, and M colored him brown. She then glued on his green overalls and glued buttons onto his overalls. For most of the story, Corduroy is missing a button, but M wanted to be sure he had 2 buttons on his overalls like at the end. I wanted M to use a green crayon and rub his overalls over a piece of corrugated cardboard to give it a corduroy texture, but she wasn't interested in that step.
