For the past few weeks, the small Monday and Tuesday group has been developing a ritual after rest time. We all sit (very) close together and read about the pretend island in the book The Land of Neverbelieve by Norman Messenger. The book starts with an introduction to the island, which the author “discovered and explored and recorded” all wild life and curious things that he found on the island. Favorite creatures and or/plant life include: The Bell Biter Plant, The Tree of Horrible Hands and the Multi-Winged Parrot.

Today we made our own island. First we made a list of things we might want to include in our island. The list included: Unicorns, Pteranodons, mountains, frogs, caves, lake in a forest, frog cat, picture mountain, teapot volcano, flowers, rabbits.

Next step was to draw our creatures and the map. RR and MR worked on the map while WG, AR, CR and OR drew creatures and landforms. I recorded names and facts about each addition to our island.2015-01-27After we finished drawing, we moved on to painting. Painting brought up new information, like what colors their creations be and whether or not they could change colors.2015-01-271Once we finished painting every last of the 20+ landforms and creatures, the children created an introduction story to our island

Flying Bunny Island One day we were on a boat in the sea when suddenly we discovered a mysterious island! It was shaped like a bunny named Lucy! The island was really really colorful. We sailed our boat over to inbestigate/ We climed up it and realized we were on the legs (it's a walking island). "Is this really an island?" we said. Yes it was. "I am and island." The island could talk!! When we got onto the island we saw a unicorn and a baby fish unicorn. They said "Hello!" while they went by. We drew ,pimtaoms. creatures, trees and a map of the sland to show what we found out.

Introduction to Flying Bunny Island
One day we were on a boat in the sea when suddenly we discovered a mysterious island! It was shaped like a bunny named Lucy! The island was really really colorful. We sailed our boat over to inbestigate/ We climed up it and realized we were on the legs (it’s a walking island). “Is this really an island?” we said. Yes it was. “I am and island.” The island could talk!! When we got onto the island we saw a unicorn and a baby fish unicorn. They said “Hello!” while they went by. We drew ,pimtaoms. creatures, trees and a map of the sland to show what we found out.

These are some of the creatures and landforms that were imagined. (from left to right): the walking "C", "O" and "E", the Letter Cave, Milk Bottle Mountain, Unicorn, Tip Toe (bad guy), Bagel Cream Flowers, Picture Mountain, Blue Green Owl Family and the Walking Forest

Milk bottle Mountain sprays milk out like a volcano but it isn’t hot. The unicorns drink the milk and the Pteranodons, who live in the forst,  deliver the milk to other creaturs on the island. The walking letters eat letters that don’t walk, but are found in the Letter Cave. We already have more ideas of what we want to add to Flying Bunny Island, so stay tuned for next Tuesday!
